Lake Sturgeon

I find the article below interesting, and I hope you do to.  The following information is from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR):

Weekly Fishing Tip: Fishing for a Piece of "History"
Lake sturgeon are one of Michigan’s most culturally and historically significant fish species. But many people don’t know much about these living dinosaurs!

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources recently launched a section of their website dedicated to all things lake sturgeon. The page includes their background, their history, angling information, partnership efforts to manage this species, videos and photos and much more. Visit www.michigan.gov/sturgeon to learn all about this unique fish.

Interested in fishing for lake sturgeon? Although limited, there are opportunities available. In fact, hook-and-line possession seasons will open on Monday, July 16 on Lake St. Clair, the St. Clair River and Otsego Lake in Otsego County. Please note there are strict regulations and size restrictions attached to fishing for lake sturgeon and an all-species license and Lake Sturgeon Fishing Tag are required to participate.
