Green Sturgeon in Humboldt Bay! None local?

I went to the Humboldt Bay Symposium today and was blown away by a presentation by Bill Pinnix of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Green Sturgeon monitoring in Humboldt Bay. I have fished about all sides of this bay and sloughs and have never caught or witnessed a sturgeon being caught in the bay. I have seen many from the Trinity river though. Apparently Humboldt Bay has thousands of readings of these fish that are tagged between April and October in the far North Bay near Arcata. Kayakers have witnessed them at certain tides and were asking if they were legal to catch. It sounded like fishing laws for Sturgeon are vague. These fish as adults are generally 6-7ft and over 100lbs. They live around 70 years and are very prehistoric looking.

Now get this. These fish that are monitored are from the Sacramento River, San Pablo Delta, Rouge River and other rivers north. And while we have sturgeon in the Klamath and Trinity rivers in abundance, they avoid feeding in Humboldt Bay and seem to go everywhere north! There has been no recorded readings of Klamath or Trinity Sturgeon in Humboldt Bay!

Damn those fish! Make them go local!

Perhaps restore their habitat?

My theory is, the uglier the fish the better the taste. Sturgeon is way up there in the taste department and holds up very well on a BBQ.

Bring 'em back to the bay, Richard. Dammit, it's your job !!

While trolling for salmon late last August in the Eel River estuary I witnessed sturgeon (I assume Green Sturgeon) jump partly or completely out of the water (over three trips we saw seven of them.} I also detected a number of large fish below the million dollar bridge with my fish finder, possibly sturgeon.

I understand no one believes there are Green Sturgeon in Humboldt Bay.
I caught a 54 an 1/2 inch 42 an 1/2 lb Green Sturgeon in the north bay past the coast guard station on 6 24 2010 with 20lb test on a trout rod. 45 min and have a pic and witnesses to prove it, plus if you look in the background you'll know where. Tell me how to post the pic. an I will. Bill, Willie, William
