Just like last year, Wisconsin’s only spearing season for sturgeon is expected to run its full 16 days on Lake Winnebago, but spearing on the lakes up the river could end earlier once quotas are reached. Almost 315 sturgeon were taken on Lake Winnebago during the season’s opening weekend — and more than twice as many fish were taken there on Saturday, after last year’s total sturgeon harvest was only one third what it was in 2015 due a lack of clear water. This past weekend, the state D-N-R says half the quota was taken for male sturgeon on the upriver lakes — along with 42-percent of the season’s female limit. Quotas on Lake Winnebago have not reached 20-percent yet. Michael Larsen of Seymour caught the largest sturgeon Sunday, a 141 pounder that was almost six feet seven inches long.
