Day 2 Sportsman’s Lodge
Sturgeon Tournament Results
Day 2 of the Sportsman’s Lodge Sturgeon Tournament action was more aggressive in day two and lots of fun was had. First Place and the winner of $1500 in cash is Darrik Ferestad from Park Rapids, MN. Darrik’s sturgeon measured 64 inches in length and had a 26 inch girth. The approximate weight was 66 lbs according to the MN DNR Sturgeon chart. The length and girth of the sturgeon is the two things that determine the winners of the tournament. Way to go Darrik!
2nd place day winner of day 2 is David Clement from East Grand Forks, MN taking home $650 cash. David’s sturgeon measured 62 inches in length, 24 inches in girth and weighed approximately 60lbs.
3rd place winner of day 2 is Dan Arcand from Little Canada, MN taking home a custom built fishing rod. Dan’s sturgeon measured in at 61.5 inches in length, 24 inches in girth and weighed approximately 57 lbs.
