the car radio was first to be installed, I don't know how this sport is even possible without listening to jerry and the sturgeon queen!!

I had peeps telling me a CB antenna won't work on a shack cause there is no ground, I have it on a frame with a tongue up in the air, so I would think that's enough.

When I used a CB I bolted the fiberglass one right to the shack and it worked great.. I just removed it and put a car antenna on the bracket that the CB antenna was on. Radio works awesome also, Jerry Schneider will come in real good now.

Doing a little off season work installing CB in shack. Does anybody know if I can use a standard fiberglass antenna bolted to the frame? Will it get a descent ground? Or do I need to use a no ground plane antenna? I'd rather a standard, since no ground antennas get about 80% less reception distance and cost quite more.

Was a pretty quick season for us. Saw a small one on opening day. Sunday got a nice male on Poygan. First time got the fish on camera. Still trying to load it on youtube. Although I have detachable spear heads only once have I had it release. Never had a fish roll off of it either, just wears the fish out quicker. Still looking for one of those 6 tine spears if someone knows who makes them.

So the handle floats/sinks away from the spot it was aimed at? Or is the handle extremely long to match the depth you're fishing. I have a 10' long pole and forked head that is 10"wide and 12" long that I picked up at an estate sale. I was told her husband used it on Winnebago, but the head doesn't look to separate.

Just wanted to chime in a helpful hint for those who may be new to spearing, or some who just may not know. When you spear a fish the first thing you should do is get the spear handle detached from the spear head, trust me this will save alot of headaches. also if the fish gets near the ice or bottom with that handle still attached and rolls it could pry it right out of itself, i have seen that happen. What we do is a little prep on the heads each season with some vaseline to make sure that head detaches easily. Just thought id chime in, I see a lot of videos where people don't do this and its definitely a bigger mess 90% of the time. till next year........

One of my favorite ways to make sturgeon

Grilled Sturgeon Steaks

2 lbs. Sturgeon Steaks ¼ Cup Orange Juice 1/4 C. Soy Sauce 2 Tbsp. Ketchup 1 Tbsp. Oil 2 tsp. Chopped Parsley 1 tsp. Lemon Juice 2 Cloves of Garlic Minced ½ tsp. Dried Basil ¼ tsp. Ground Pepper

Arrange fish in single layer in shallow baking dish. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over fish. Let stand for 1-2 hours turning fish once. Remove from sauce. Grill sturgeon 6 minutes on each side over medium heat.

Had a fun and successful season this year. Was done by 9 opening morning. Speared a 56" 35 lbs male. What made it even better, was that my son was along for the experience. He was so excited, he was shaking. He is already talking about next year.

Smoked 1/2 of ours and if you ever tried it, It's much better than trout or salmon.

The other 1/2 is waiting for a grilling recipe Wink
