September sturgeon season to begin soon in Wisconsin
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin's other sturgeon season is about to begin.
February's sturgeon spearing season on the Lake Winnebago System is known nationally as an ice angler's paradise.
The spearing season's lesser known cousin, the hook-and-line season, starts Sept. 1 and runs through the end of the month on several major rivers and lakes.
Anyone who plans on harvesting a sturgeon must purchase a tag from the DNR. Tags cost $20 for residents and $50 for nonresidents.
