Hello, Well as I said I geared up to sturgeon fish and finally got the chance

Well it is summer 2016 and I am ready!!

So I put them in a combo package for a mere $9.00 here on this web site che...

Well, unfortutely we have not been fishing much. Mom just does not feel up to it, she really would love to go but she physically can not.

I took Ernie my brother out right before the big Brewster Salmon derby and we hooked 2 and one got off next to the boat, dam barbless hooks, and the other a nice 10 or 12 lber was wild and the rules this year do not allow any wild ones to be kept.,so we released him at the boat. We did catch a 10 " wall -eye the little bug eye was just a bit bigger t...
