Spearers hit the 90 percent trigger for adult females on the Lake Winnebago system on Wednesday. The season will end at 1 p.m. Thursday, lasting six days and tying for the third-shortest season since 2002.
A total of 118 fish were harvested Wednesday on the Winnebago system. That included the largest sturgeon of the 2014 season, a 161 pound, 77.1 inch sturgeon speared by John Skahen at Quinney. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says 99 fish weighing over 100 pounds have been registered this season.
