#HuntFishTravel 182 – Fangirling over Sturgeon Spearing

I doubt you’ll find two women more excited to stare down a hole and cut huge ice cubes out of a frozen lake with a chainsaw than Trisha Steffen and I.

If you want the step by step in depth equipment and technique information, please listen to Episode 130.

While we do go through some of the equipment needed and some of the regulations for sturgeon spearing, Trisha and I really go into detail on the culture and the event’s atmosphere. From Bloody Mary’s delivered to your shanty to bonfires on the lake to beer tents to Labrador Retrievers swimming beneath the ice from one shanty to the other…we’ve got it all.

By the end of this episode, you’ll be crazy excited to join us in 2018.

So many stories yet to tell, especially when you both spear your first sturgeons!
