Winnebago Sturgeon Harvest Report for Sunday, February 14

February 14, 2010

“Somewhat slower harvest pace today on both Lake Winnebago and the Upriver Lakes, which typically happens the day after all the excitement following opening day.  Total of 398 fish registered today with, again, a nice bevy of 17 fish larger than 100 pounds.

The number of spearing shanties dropped very little lake wide though from 4033 shacks on Lake Winnebago yesterday to 4009 today, and 490 on the Upriver Lakes yesterday to 469 today.  Many spearers moved their shacks on Lake Winnebago to areas of clearer water along the east shore and northern end of the lake.

Total harvests for the day Sunday February 14, 2010:

Lake Winnebago:  56 juvenile females; 163 adult females; 124 males; TOTAL of 343
Upriver Lakes:  9 juvenile females; 9 adult females; 37males; TOTAL of 55

SYSTEM-WIDE:  65 juvenile females; 172 adult females; 161 males; TOTAL of 398”
