I know the feeling

We fish for gators quite a bit. Especially in after hours when game fishing is over, and sturgeon is open 24/7. But, have been fishing tidal flux in years past. Only using a 8 1/2' 8-12# test rod fishing eggs. I've hooked a few sturgeon (legal though, since it was bait they inhaled it) on that rod. Let me tell you, a 12' sturgeon doesn't stay on long with tackle like that. I saw him come up near surface once, and that was it. I never had a chance.

I heard about some guy cathing sturgeon on a fly, but that's a whole other debate to boot. He soaks fly in shrimp oil. Kind of defeats purpose to me. But that's a different threat all together.
