Lake Roosevelt White Sturgeon (Oversize & Keepers!) - Extended Cut

Guide Shane Reynolds of Northwest Fishing Expeditions offers up some great information on bait, rod handling, and locations for keeper sturgeon. Fishing around Marcus Island and the mouth of the Kettle River produces a boat limit, lots of under size, and a couple oversize in a hot day of sturgeon fishing.
Watch to the end for an epic battle between NWFR member Lee Howe and ten foot, 300 pound old girl. This fish has girth! Lee fights it one on one to the end - this is what hot sturgeon fishing looks like! Filmed on location in July 2017, near the close of the first retention sturgeon fishery season in that area in nearly 20 years.
