Siberian Sturgeon On The Feeder

Drennan fan Mario Tomatis from Italy has had a memorable day catching some impressive Siberian sturgeon.


“It was a nice surprise catching these fish in the wild,” he commented. “As always, I released the fish, especially in this case because they are a species at risk of extinction!”

blockend-feeder-heavyMario used a 70g Drennan Oval Blockend Feeder with maggots on a size 10 hook to catch the prehistoric fish.

Siberian sturgeon (Acipenser baerii) can often live up to 60 years and the largest recorded specimen to date weighed 210kg.
