When they come in season again you can try for them in the Kennebecasis river. A good spot used to be accross the river from the Perry Point road on the Kingston Peninsula. There used to be a bridge there, and now the pillars are still there but under water. Another spot is pretty much anywhere further up river in Hampton, especially between the bridge by Kredls and Darling's Lake.

will be going after sturgeon later this summer and as far as I know the SJR and the Kennebicassis both have sturgeon. Couple yrs back My buddy and I witnessed a number of 3 - 4' sturgeon jumping in the SJR near gagetown while fishing for smallies. Guess thats somewhere where u could start.

What do guys use mostly to catch these big dirty things? I've heard shrimp, worms, basically anything they can smell. Do you jut cast er out there and let it sit until something comes along and grabs it?

is it best to use a treble hook or a single hook for sturgeon? Also i've heard the best time of day is mid afternoon (based on tide)

I would use circle hooks, less chance of hurting the fish if you plan on releasing it (under 47-1/4" or 120 Cm has to be released). Even though they are bottom feeders, they like fresh bait, not just old smelly stuff. Bloodworms are supposed to be one of the best baits, just put a few on the hook and then place a good weight about 18 - 24 inches up from the hook and let it the weight sit on bottom.

They're back in season now, and if less then 25 people show up to participate in the Hammond River Kayak Fishing Tournament this weekend, I'll be fishing in it and plan to devote a couple of hours trying for a sturgeon to my list of fish for-the-win.
