Local SoCal Sturgeon – Think you need to head to Oregon or Washington to catch some sturgeon? Well there are only a few lakes down here in Southern California that have populations of them and I’ve been heart broken once by losing one of these big beasts. Kevin Mattson was lucky enough to catch and release one of these freshwater monsters, and now Spencer has joined the small group to have caught sturgeon in SoCal.
Spencer was fishing at Irvine Lakes where many big and exotic fish have been stocked over the years. I don’t have many of the details of his gear and bait, but by the picture, you can tell he was looking for something bigger than a trout.
Well done Spencer and keep expanding the limits of what can be caught down here in Southern California!
