Wisconsin River Prairie du Sac dam

Had a good morning on the Wisconsin River in Terry's duck boat. We fished in several spots below the Prairie du Sac dam using gizzard shad on circle hooks on the bottom. Terry got the first fish of the day, a nice channel cat.

Channel Catfish (Ictalurus punctatus)

Soon I followed with my own.

Then Terry caught the fish that I've been wanting more than any other! Congrats Terry on your first lake sturgeon!

Lake Sturgeon (Acipenser fulvescens)

Maybe I'd get one next? Nope, it's a tiny fish. But... it's a lifer flathead catfish!

Flathead Catfish (Pylodictis olivaris)

I know I'm going to get crap for how small that flathead is, but hey a lifer is a lifer!  To finish off the day I landed a PR channel cat (30.5") and a likely PR freshwater drum (didn't measure him though).
