Very neat video, I have only been sturge fishing a handfull of times and i have to say its my favorite fishing. Those fish will absolutly kick your butt. every time i have been its been for over sized fish. The biggest i have caught was 13 foot. it took over an hour to get to the boat and my butt was kicked. it truely is you against beast and many times i thought the beast was gonna win. for anyone who has achance at doing this you need to. you have not been fishing till you hook an over sized sturgeon. Thanks for posting the video it brought back some very good memorizes.
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
