Thumbs up Sturgeon fishing - British Columbia

I still can't believe it, but my wedding party sure planned the trip of a lifetime..

After a couple nights in Banff, a round of golf in Kamloops, we arrived in Hope, BC. to go fishing.. for Sturgeon!

This has always been a bucket list item for me, ever since seeing the videos and pictures of the monsters they pull out of the Fraser River.

Well that day we were going to get a monster of our own.

This beauty is roughly 300LBs and estimated to be roughly 80 years old.
She also, surprisingly, was never tagged prior to us catching her either.

She measured in at 8'6" to the beginning of the tail (that is how they take measurements, as the measurements are more consistent for their conservation records), but as you can see if the tail photo, she would be closer to 10ft!

If you are ever heading out that way, or have always wanted to target monster Sturgeon, I highly recommend using Sturgeon Slayers as your guiding service. Kevin was an amazing guide and I have nothing but great things to say about them.
