    I haven't gotten all the details yet....I do have one important stat to share....Grasshopper was cleaning a sturgeon in the kitchen yesterday afternoon! I have some fresh sturgeon steak in my fridge to illustrate this fact! Pistol Pete caught it, from what I understand. It was caught in one of the two public beach areas 5-7 miles from Knights Landing.

    More numbers to follow!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It was 63" and caught on a pile worm. Peter is here with me now. Pete says it was a savage take down. He nearly lost his pole!! The fish was hooked about 1:10 a.m. yesterday morning. The fish weighed 74 pounds!!!!!
    Peter is also reporting that four stripers were caught. Two were undersized. However, the two keepers went 24 and 20 inches. One small eight inch cat was caught. Eight ounce weights were sticking to bottom just fine. The Saechao's are planning at least one more trip this season!!!!! The beach is a great place to sturgeon fish and it's 12 miles closer than the private property.
    They fished the first beach. Fish sniffer reports recent catches at second beach as well for sturgeon.

    Tight linz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Saechao's are good but a lot of bait being thrown. With $5.00 a person, could be a $100 pot:eek:oooh: The mini Tourament is Seans baby. May the luckiest person win:smile2:

    I'll feel better if Rudy comes out. You do have a point though. They will have a lot of poles to contend with out there. Anything can happen. Remember fish have to be at least 12in to count.

    Good to hear from you, King! See ya out there later in week. Who is taking $5 fee for tournament? Who has the official scale? LOL!!!!

    Pistol went out there Sunday from 2 to 9 p.m. at the pipe. One small 14 inch was all that was caught. One huge take down on livers.
