Went out fishing this morning and foul hooked a 4' + sturgeon on a deadly dick. I was able to get my lure back with no harm to him and he was not removed from the water. Here's a little video I managed to record on my phone.

Nice video. Fowl hooked on a DD, you must have thought you had a whale. :)

Second one this year :smash: unfortunately when I catch the striper of a lifetime I'm gonna think its a sturgeon!

I know of a few foul hooked in the CT River this year. One was brought in on a shad dart w/8#test. I wonder if these things do a lot of tail slapping? It always seems people get them snagged/foul hooked or something. Anyway they are cool.
