Re: Marlim or Winchester?
Are those sturgeon found in the rivers only. It amazes me how they can get so big just in the rivers. I understand how marlin get so big. They have an unlimited diet of tuna, dolphin, wahoo, king makeral, all very large fish. But those sturgeon must live a long time in order to get that big in fresh water. Also, I am not familar with the tackle that you are talking about 4ked Horn, but what we use for billfish are 80 Internationals that hold nearly 1000 yards of 80lb test line. That is still a battle with such stiff gear. The boat is a great help, I would love to hook into one of those sturgeon. What do you guys use for bait. Chickens, dogs/cats, small cows? I am curious. I have personally seen a large marlin eat a 50-70lb yellowfin tuna.
