what little i know of sturgeon fishing I got from Mike. He puts on a sinker slide onto his main line with a snap swivel at the terminal end of the main line. sinker attaches to the slide via swivel. Then a heavy leader to the swivel on the main line. then a LARGE hook (4/0 or 5/0 bait hook).

Gob on some crawlers, along with maybe a chub or minnow. throw it out there and wait......

thats all i got from it. i'm sure mike will be able to get further in detail.

I'm here,,,,, havent check the site in a few, been working on the addition..... Here is a pic of the tackle that you need....

The hooks are 4/0 khale hooks, snell them with 15lb line about 3 feet long. I use 30lb on my rod, thread your line from left to right through the sinker slide(black thing) then attach a BIG snap swivel to the end of the line. Attach your hook to the snap, then attach your sinker (8oz) to the sinker slide. We usually use 4 inch spottails, thread 2 on the hook through the side of the minnow, then gob 3 or 4 crawlers on the hook...... Thats about it. Find a deep hole that looks like it has logs on the bottom, cause the sturgeon are laying on the bottom and usually dont show up as a fish, they look like a log would on your screen. Anchor above the hole, then toss your line out and wait!!!! Sturgeon dont slam your bait,,,, you'll see your rod tip kind of twitch, like a perch would when your using perch rigs...... If you set the rod hard, and "sting" him, you'll be in for one heck of a show and fight!!!!!

Any more questions, just ask!!!! Glad to help if I can!!!!
