Russian Sturgeon is a fish of the family Acipenseridae, listed in the Red List of Threatened Species. It lives in the basins of the Caspian Sea, the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov. Among the rivers, where Russian sturgeon is most common, are the Volga, the Oka, the Klyazma, the Vyatka, the Don, the Dniester, the Danube and the Southern Bug. It lives in the bottom water. Its diet includes mainly mollusks, shrimps, worms and small fish. There are migratory and non-migratory forms. Within the migratory form there are vernal and hiemal races. Recently, the population of sturgeon has decreased greatly due to rapacious fishing. Sturgeon’s snout is relatively short and obtuse. Its unfringed barbels are located closer to the tip of the snout, than to the mouth. Lower lip is interrupted in its center. Its spindle-shaped body, between the rows of scutes, is covered with bony plates having sharp, curved back ends. Body coloration varies from almost black to milky gray or yellowish. An average commercial fish weights from 12 to 15 kg. The maximum reported parameters of Russian sturgeon include a weight exceeding 100 kg and a length of 230 cm.

I was just reading up about this sturgeon, is this fish also known as the diamond sturgeon? Talked about weights over 115kg for this fish. Pretty exciting :)

Yes, the Russian Sturgeon is also known as the Diamond Sturgeon or the Danube Sturgeon.

Crazy day, ended yesterday with a Trophy Sterlet and was hoping for some decent sized ones tonight. 
Got bites all evening but not the good ones until this beast decided to show up...

 

Second screen is the gear used to land it after approx 2-2.5 hours of fight and a whole lot of coffee thermoses.

Tight lines!

Gratz, very very nice fish

If I can, a curiosity, why do you use a slimmer line (15kg) than the leader(18kg)? should not it be reverse? is this the right mechanics for the game?
Thank you

The leader is a result of me being lazy and not run to the store :D

Was about to choose a suitable FC leader but decided to go with the one I had available that wouldn't reduce my max load on the rig. Thinner leader would in this case have resulted in failure to land the fish as I should have been very close to or even over its breakingpoint.

It’s been quite a while for anyone to post a trophy sturgeon here. Rhino currently seem good for sterlet. Sturgeon though have become very hard to figure out. 

I got a few okay ones on redworm. 

Ive yet to catch a single trophy tho. Looking for help.

I use:

baits- redworm, NC, rhino, cockchafer larva. 

GB- corn flour, bloodworm, dried crusts, zebra, crayfish.

using loop rig max points. 

 

Maybe trophy sturgeon have become much more rare lately? Seems so much changed with sturgeon over a month ago. Anyone who is doing well maybe if you can share some new info since last post is July 10th.
