DNR predicts big sturgeon season


MADISON (WKOW) -- The sturgeon-spearing season kicks off on Feb. 13 and lasts until the 28th.

DNR officials predict some big catches this year and possibly an end to some recent records.

Wildlife experts say they've seen reports of 150 to 200 pound sturgeon so far.

The record was 188 pounds back in 2004.

Last year, a woman set a record for the largest fish ever harvested by a woman spearer. It weighed 169 pounds and was nearly 7 feet long.
