In the Pacific Northwest, we fish for many different species and aside for the Spring and Fall salmon runs, nothing else beats fishing for sturgeon. These fish are not only fun to catch, but their meat is especially good to eat (sturgeon makes for great fish tacos).
White sturgeon can live to be over 100 years old. The rate of growth is dependent on water temperature. Typically, they reach six feet long around 25 years of age, showing that these fish do not grow as quickly as many other fish.
We join up with Kevin Estrada from Sturgeon Slayers and learn about what it takes to catch a Sturgeon. I have never done anything like it. Fishing for Fraser River Sturgeon in Hope and Fraser Canyon British Columbia. Watch the highlights with of my 30 minute battle with a 6ft Sturgeon. White Sturgeon can grow to be one of the worlds largest fish. Today I was fortunate to also learn a lot about conservation on the Fraser River!
