Cool Another First on a FLy

Eddie, Ian and I met at the Bath landing to scout for some for stripers. Eddie's 18' Maritime Skiff was very nice. Managed to locate one blitz at the bottom of Hockmock Bay and boated 1/2 dozen or so. Nothing huge but real fiesty bass in the 20" range. However I did boat an interesting spcimen on a Deep Eel. Foul hooked in the back. They were jumping everywhere. That's nothing new for the Kennebec Watershed they jump all day long. Some times it sounds like someone has thrown a tree into the river when a 300 pound Atlantic Sturgeon leaps. This one is a shortnosed about 24". It was surprisingly less creapy than I expected one to be. The skin is gritty feeling, almost sandpapery not slimy as I had imagined.

Thumbs up Very cool . . .

Nice addition to the list! The shortnosed sturgeon are endangered in MA. There are some in the CT River and people occasionally catch them while bait fishing.

A new type of bobber fishing

I love the "In-Fisherman" episode where they are sturgeon fishing the Colorado River. He hooks up a fish that is close to 200 lbs but is having trouble keeping up with him in the 30' boat they are in. The guy driving the boat talks him into fighting the fish out of a FLOAT TUBE. I don't know how he landed that fish. After being totally dunked a few times, I think he was glad to have that shot over with.
