Minnesota Fish Tales
Statewide Fishing Report Many big sturgeon boated this past week again on Lake of the Woods. Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river. Fish different holes until you find fish. Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred. continued
