Special thanks to our weigh master and videographer Tif for putting this together!
In our quest to become the most informative fisherman's reference site for the waters of the Suisun Bay area, we have added a few more features to our website!
First we have added an Interactive Nautical Map that has a starting point just outside the mouth of McAvoy Harbor.
Next we added the Sportsmans Forum. You can easily join the forum with your Facebook, Google, Open ID or other log in credentials....just click the log in with Facebook icon for the options!

Another great weekend is in the history books! The Original Sturgeon Derby XXIX started off on Saturday morning with beautiful weather and nice water as we all headed out to catch the perfect 57" specimen of a white sturgeon to weigh in!
Saturday night and Sunday the wind picked up and along with the wind came the choppy water.
All in all over the 32 hour Derby there were 36 sturgeon weighed in with Saturday's first place fish being closest to the 57" target length at 57 1/32"... Sunday's number one slot was 57 1/8". All the fish on the board on both days were within 2 1/2" of the target!
Thank you to all who participated! Be sure to bookmark our site and check back with us for local fishing reports throughout the year!

Ladies and Gentlemen....the target length for both days of the 2013 Original Sturgeon Derby is 57 Inches!

According to the fishermen around here...the water has warmed up a few degrees and the bite has improved significantly! Just in time for the Derby!
The usual baits are all working and fish are being reported as caught in both the shallower water and in the deeper waters.
