As you head out, keep in mind:
Spear head width is restricted to 18 inches or less, and tines can only be arranged in a single, straight line.
Registration stations have been relocated to parking lots at boat landings, city parks and government buildings for the 2021 season.
To help keep spearers and staff safe, stations will operate as drive-thru only. Spearers must remain in their vehicle throughout the registration process.
Place harvested sturgeon in an easily accessible location before entering the registration area and have your customer id number readily available.
Avoid the end of day rush at registration stations by bringing your fish in to be registered early.
Good luck out there this season! Let’s all work together to make 2021 a safe and successful sturgeon spearing season.
Remember to submit your photos throughout the season here.
More information about the 2021 sturgeon spearing season is available on the DNR’s sturgeon spearing webpage.
