2018 Sturgeon Season is in full swing.
The water temp is warming back up from the very cold snap we experienced 2 weeks ago. With that in mind the sturgeon are starting to chomp well.
My last few trips I’ve noticed the fish have been on the move. We would graph a decent group of fish, then a short time later the graph would go blank. The fish would be there for about 10-20 minutes then be moved on. So I have been moving fishing locations quite a bit and fishing 24-56ft of water.
I’m using C4 Custom Rods built on Rainshadow rod blanks matched with PENN Fathom lever drag reels. I use 50lb Xtreme braid with a 80lb test monofilament Berkley Big Game leader tied to a 6/0 or 7/0 hook.
This season i have been primarily using Salmon Roe and at times when the water temperature was its coldest bloody Eel was added into the lineup.
I anticipate April to be a super hot bite and possibly into May similar to last year.
I’ve been launching out of primarily Pittsburg, CA and at times Suisun City/Fairfield and still have a few dates remaining for April. If you’ve ever wanted to catch a sturgeon get on my calendar by contacting me.
