YouTube- Hells Canyon IDAHO: Big Sturgeon fishing
Pretty cool, Mike. Is that your company? We have shovel-bill sturgeon on the Tennessee River; they call them shovel-bill catfish but are actually a member of the sturgeon family. They snag them in the tail-race below dams for the roe.
I finally got to shoot that .45-120; couldn't hit the side of a barn with it but it was still a lot of fun. I think there was too much deviation in the loads for any consistency. I'm going to load a batch when I get back with some of that new powder and see if I can get a little better grouping. I got a bunch of pretty consistent 200 gr. bullets that I just cast from some tire weights. They all weigh in pretty close.
Wow. I think I remember that outfitter's name from the Tri-Cities area --. Nice fish.
SC.... You sure you're not thinking Spoonbill (Paddlefish). I used to go snagging for them below Kentucky Dam, great eating, not a bone in the whole fish, and people love the roe.

No not mine Sea
Looks like that one escaped the smoker. I'm guessing Idaho has close to the same fishing regs as us, is there reason for letting it go.
catch and release only Colt, you gonna be ready in April for the Jet boat races up the salmon river next spring?
I am a big advocate of the Catch, fillet, and release program.
Yep! he'll be ready!
