Some of the regular Team Italy members were not able to come on this August trip, so our long time guest and friend Antonio invited Alex and Peter to join him and his wife instead. For the past 7 years, Antonio has showed them pictures and videos of the team’s many sturgeon catches from the Fraser, some as big as 9ft, so it wasn’t hard to convince them to try this fishery. This was the first visit to the Fraser River for newcomers Alex and Peter, but it won’t be their last. Despite tougher than normal sturgeon fishing for this time of the year, we were still able to produce good and consistent results on a daily basis. We sure didn’t get the numbers of fish as in the past, but we did get quite a few quality fish between 6 and 8ft, and enjoyed some incredible weather too.
Antonio will be back again in November with the original Team Italy members, for another go at chasing Fraser River giants. Looking forward to fishing with the guys again in a couple months. They’re always hunting for the BIG one.
