The often controversial sturgeon spearing season came to an end on Lake Winnebago, Wisconsin after the quota set by the Wisconsin DNR was met. The quota was reached in 6 days. The DNR allows the spearing of 350 juvenile females, 700 adult females, and 1000 male sturgeon. Every February, over 3000 portable ice shanties are set-up throughout Lake Winnebago for a chance to harvest a sturgeon. This year a monster 212lbs 84.2in sturgeon was speared. For those not familiar, a hole in cut through the ice where a fish decoy is dropped into waiting for a sturgeon to swim by where it is then speared with the use of a pronged spear.
