Sturgeon SUP Fishing

Fishing from a standup is in its infancy. Intrepid anglers the world over are discovering the joys of snagging fish on a board from pro surfers like Cory Lopez to avid fishermen like Ryan Sansoucy. Here, we watch as a paddler snags a sturgeon, a deep-dwelling, fresh water fish, in Idaho that looks to be about six feet in length. After a 45-minute fight, he lost it. Still, a solid fish tale and video proof to boot.
