Eli, Canadian Roughfisher extraordinaire, had shortnose sturgeon on his hit list.  Well, he just sealed the deal.  This is the first shortnose ever recorded by a roughfish.com member and shows that with enough plotting and scheming anything is possible for an intrepid angler.  HUGE congratulations go out to Eli for this awesome catch!

Flounder can be a ton of fun if you get into a big group of them on lighter tackle. I've actually never caught them on cut herring though, haha. My first ever Starry Flounder in Washington State
