Wisconsin sturgeon spearing picks up on Lake Winnebago

Day 5 of the Wisconsin 2020 sturgeon spearing season on the Winnebago System is now complete.
Harvest on Lake Winnebago picked up Wednesday with 24 fish registered.
Jim and Linda's registration station continues to lead the way in registration numbers as more than half of the fish speared on the big lake were registered at that location. Waverly Beach was the second busiest registration station with 7 fish brought in. There were 14 fish harvested from the Upriver Lakes, 12 of which came in to Critter's station and 2 at Indian Point.
Two fish registered tipped the scales at over 100 pounds on Wednesday. Diana Sanders (pictured) had the biggest fish of the day, taken from the upriver lakes, when she registered her 111.5-pound, 72.8-inch lake sturgeon at Critter's. Scott Schafer's 102.5-pound, 72.8-inch sturgeon was second largest and came out of Lake Winnebago.
There's some very cold weather forecast and it will be interesting to see how the weather will impact spearer effort and harvest numbers heading into the weekend.
