I have always wanted to catch one of those too for some reason. Good catch!
I agree, thats an awesome catch in anyones book! Its also on my list of Must catch before I die!! Im quite jealous......:big_smile:
What watershed did you catch it in? Looks like it took a gob o' crawler?? is that right? it is just a baby, next time go for the 5 footer that certainly lives in the same waters!
Salmonid ( Sturgeon less) :sad2:

Nice fish and welcome to the BOC.
beauty is in the eye of the beholder , welcome to the BOC
sturgeon are quite awsome in my opinion
Welcome to the BOC Chris, that fish isn't ugly it's just a baby.
Those can get huge and they sure can fight. Did ya touch it? There skin kinda feels like sand paper.
Nice sand sturgeon Chris. I would surmise that you cought it in the Missouri river, Congratulations!! These Sturgeon are common in the strech of the river you were fishing and there tributaries we catch them mostly in the spring on nightcrawlers the run between #1 to #3 pounds they are of the same family as the great sturgeon and are not an endangered species and they are quiet good table fair the trick is cleaning them. they have no bones in them, just a cartilage running down there back bone. the filets are white and have a sweet taste. the trick to cleaning them is to cut off there head and lay them on there back and take your filet knife and peal out the filet from the inside of the body cavity much like coreing an apple on both sides of the backbone.this is the easy way because the skin on them rascals are super tough. They are also great somked with the skin on and after they are smoked the skin peals right off. sorta tastes like a smoked salmon. If you folks ever get the chance try it you will like them. also the sand sturgeon is not the same fish as the endangered pallid sturgeon as the pallad has 6 barbels extending from its bottom lip as apposed to 4 on the sand sturgeon I belive that to be correct. But I've been wrong twice before,But There both GONE. LOL. Your Friend J.D.
Chris, nice catch and welcome to the BOC!!! Keep them photo's coming and hope to meet you at a gathering! Thanks for sharing!
A good catch Chris, up here on the Mississippi River, we call them hackleback, or shovelheads. They are a good fighting fish on rod and reel. JD is right on about cleaning them, and I really like them smoked. They look prehistoric don't they? Have a good day. Andy
"Sadly" you have committed the first "Cardinal Sin" of fishing..............There is NO SUCH THING AS AN "UGLY" FISH........................That is one "fine" specimen of a sturgeon................"ugly[?]" I know your mama and daddy taught you better than that.......
