On a family trip to visit friends in Oregon. Since the shad are running and the water is warming I decided to sneak out for a morning of sturgeon fishing. Set out a couple of dead shads and only had to wait a few minutes before this big boy bit. I thought he broke off as the line went slack after I set the hook, but it turned out he had just charged the boat and stayed buttoned. After a fun fight he was by the boat and I got some pics. A few minutes later I hooked another one about the same size but he spit the hook when he jumped. Another one bit a little while later but cut the line on its body. That was it for the morning and then it was time to take the kids shad fishing for a couple hours. Unfortunately they weren't biting very well but we did get 4 and my youngest daughter hooked and landed two all by herself like a pro. Good morning of fishing.
