The public pier behind Lega's is open to fishing and there's been some big sturgeon caught there in the past. Cast a wad of bait out as far as you can, into deep water... do not leave pole unattended.
Johnny Lega's is on M-29 about a mile or so North of the Colony Tower (south of Algonac)..

Google Northern Quillback Carpsucker...I bet that is what you caught


Good job on the fish fest, sounds like a great night fishing.

You need a tag if you decide to target them....tricky line to cross, but I think your gear would tell the tale.

My brother has caught a few sturgeon in the old henry's parking lot a night years back. Thats farther up past the ferry past the boat launch right at the corner where the road turns north. I belive the restaurant is vacant now. He said he never had any problems fishing there, just once a cop stopped and asked to see his fishing liscense and said he had no problem with him being there.

No tag required unless you are "targeting" them. But based on your description of your set up, I would have one anyway , it might eliminate a hassle from a CO if he questions your motive.. Its very similar to our normal set up for sturgeon. The tags are free from any license dealer.
