LAKE WINNECONNE, Wis. — The long wait is over for sturgeon spearers in Northeast Wisconsin.

On Saturday February 9th , the season officially began. Spearers went on the ice and patiently waited for a chance to stab a sturgeon. Some people got lucky on day one.

“(I’ve) never actually speared a sturgeon before,” Brian Perzentka said. “This is the first sturgeon I actually saw because you usually sit for hours and hours and you don’t see much, so it was pretty exciting.”

Spearing veterans also got some new stories on Saturday.
