There used to be... I remember guys bringing them in to weigh. I think the biggest I ever saw was maybe 50 pounds. Seen some big catfish pulled out of there too
I have seen the big kitties, but never heard about the Sturgeons.

I was told by someone that there was a VIP only day yesterday.

Was that person just being "That Guy"?

I don’t think the lake entirely dried up. Especially with the wet winter. I bet there are some nice unmolested fish to be caught, even if you can only fish from shore.

We stocked a good load of sturgeon or two back in the 90"s when I worked there. Only a handful were ever landed and those were released. Those things have so much food given the size of that lake. That and landing one that does not go ape on you is hard on most people and the fight is usually really long in order to land them. They seem to show biting better in the winter months too. Shrimp in one form or another is usually the ticket and the west shore was always a given. I hope to see some pics of that place soon. I hope you guys can put your boats in there in the next few years or so.
