If you can see it, you can catch it, right?
Apparently, even if that fish is a sturgeon. Check out this video to see some sturgeon action.
I wish I had a creek like that close to me. I can only imagine how fun that was on that light of tackle. When I hear of most people sturgeon fishing they go out at night with heavier gear than a bass rod. So sight fishing and flipping for sturgeon would have to be a blast.
Some takeaways from watching this video. Know why the fish are there, in this case they were feeding off of the dead fish from the hatcheries in the area. Next is to match the forage. The hatcheries in the area were stocked with trout so use trout. Finally, if you aren't catching fish, move. When sight fishing the fish will be especially finicky and spooky; odds are if you catch one the other's will notice the action and stop biting.
