Is it possible for female stipers to have eggs in them as late or early as the beginning of November ? I caught a monster early November in the Saint-John river in Oromocto and the belly of the fish was huge. I tried to find some info( and pics) on this, but i figured i,d ask the forum for answers. Any and all insights would be appreciated. Also is it true that there is not supposed to be any spawning of stipers in this river.
