Sturgeon hook & line season opens Sept. 2; harvest tag needed
MADISON - The hook and line sturgeon season will open on Sept. 2 and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says anglers looking to take sturgeons will need a harvest tag.
"The harvest tag is required only if you're planning to harvest a sturgeon and you must have the tag before you fish," says Mike Staggs, Wisconsin's fisheries director. "You don't need a harvest tag if you only plan to catch and release."
