2-23-15 sturgeon spearing

OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) — The sturgeon spearing season has ended, with more than 2,100 fish harvested. State Department of Natural Resources Senior Fisheries Biologist Ryan Koenigs  says this was the sixth highest harvest since 1940.  In a news release, he says fisherman speared nearly 1,900 sturgeon on Lake Winnebago and about 290 from the nearby lakes by the time the season closed Saturday afternoon.  The agency sold a record number of licenses, at more than 13,100. Koenigs attributes that to last year’s successful year motivating more spearers.  Spearing season started February 14th.
