Deadline Oct 31, 2017 Join Me For the 2018 Sturgeon Spearing weekend

Group Sturgeon Weekend is February 9-11

Full season is February 10 – 25, 2018, deadline for tags is October 31, 2017.

The group will participate in “cutting in” on Friday, Feb 10. We will spear and attend an evening bonfire on the lake Saturday, Feb 10, and spear Sunday, Feb 11.

Sturgeon Spearing Info:

  • WI DNR Info
  • Find the 2018 Regulations here (ok it’s still the 2017 ones but you get the idea).
  • You must be 12 years or older to spear sturgeon and the deadline for putting in your application is October 31st.
  • Spearing hours are 7:00am – 1:00pm. (You can always go ice fishing afterwards!)
  • Minimum length is 36”
  • It is helpful to have a truck/SUV to get you to your shanty but it is not imperative, as there’s always someone to hitch a ride with.
  • Fond du Lac is 1 hour, 15 minutes north of General Mitchell Airport in Milwaukee.

2018 Cost details:

Oshkosh Hotel: $50-$100/night details on group rates will become available in a few weeks.

Shanty rentals per day:

  • $200 per spearing hole per day. Single hole and double hole shanties available. Total weekend Saturday and Sunday shanty rental cost: $400 for a single shanty/$800 for double shanty.
  • Generally 1 person per hole, but 2 people per hole if you want to trade off and fight over who gets to spear the sturgeon when it shows up!
  • All spearing equipment is provided with the shanty rental, shanty/1 spear hole/decoy/heat.
  • Contact Tyler Jackson 920-602-2322 to reserve your shanty (don’t wait – shanty rentals are in high demand!)

License Fees:

  • Resident Sturgeon Spearing License: $20.00*
  • Non-Resident Sturgeon Spearing License: $65.00*

*These are in addition to the fishing license you must purchase (Non-resident 4 day is $24.00/Resident annual is $20.00 NOT to be confused with sturgeon fishing which is different than spearing).

Drop me a line via the contact form if you’re interested and I can pass along the details!

MADISON, Wis. (December 22, 2016) – Wisconsin’s northwoods hold a few advantages when it comes to cross-country skiing. First, winter has staying power here.

Secondly, the vast majority of the state’s northwoods is protected land, including county, state and national forests, leaving hundreds of thousands of acres pristine and perfect for exploring.

Photos, a video and information on the 2017 HuntFishTravel Sturgeon Spearing outing you’re invited to, as well as the highlights from 2016.
