YELLOW LAKE, WISCONSIN LAKE STURGEON
On September 22 about 30 anglers held a sturgeon tournament knowing this record was still alive and swimming in Yellow Lake. For the day 33 sturgeon we landed and released with the largest sturgeon measuring 60 1/8 inches allowing for a winning prize of $1000.
The sturgeon season last throughout the month of September. Top fishing tactics are setting nightcrawlers on the bottom in deep holes. One sturgeon measuring 60 inches or over can be kept provided you purchase a sturgeon tag.
Yellow Lake is one of the few places where sturgeon are constantly landed on hook and line. If sturgeon is on your wish list, make sure to visit Yellow Lake next September
