Mikey and I paddled the Lower Root to its mouth to meet up with the Roughfishopen crew in search of the mythical Shovelnose Sturgeon. The paddle took less than two hours and we made our way to a Maple river bottom to spend the night fishing.

We caught a few Drum and watched as the Roughfishopen boys caught nearly a dozen Sturgeon. We got a tow downriver to a landing and a hitch back to the car.
