Betty and a monster lake sturgeon! 

Well, Betty wanted to catch a sturgeon for her birthday. So we headed out for a cool fall day on the North Saskatchewan River.  We started catching walleye after walleye. We couldn't keep them off the hook!  Which is a good thing if you are targeting walleye, but when you're constantly catching walleye it's tough to hook up with a sturgeon.  So we moved around around until we were getting hit's by the elusive sturgeon.  Then the game was on!  Once we found them we were catching a sturgeon every 30 to 40 min.  We managed to boat 6 sturgeon for the day.  Which was a great birthday wish come true times six!  Not to mention all the walleye we caught.  It was a fantastic day! Six sturgeon, one was just shy of 60". And a handful of smaller ones.  Fishing does not get any better in Alberta!
