Sturgeon spearing season
OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says a total of 567 sturgeon were harvested during the 2013 spear season – and 39 of them weighed over 100 pounds. The sturgeon season ended Sunday. WLUK-TV reports that this year’s total is just one more fish than harvested in 2012, when 566 sturgeon were registered. A total of 306 sturgeon were taken on Lake Winnebago, and 9.5 percent of those speared on Winnebago weighed more than 100 pounds. The DNR says that’s a record. Final totals on Lake Winnebago for the 2013 season were: 30 juvenile females, 131 adult females, and 145 males. The numbers speared were well below the cap.
