OSHKOSH — Ryan Koenigs, Winnebago sturgeon biologist for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources reminds sturgeon spearers that the August 1 deadline to apply for a 2014 Upriver Lakes Sturgeon Spearing Season permit is quickly approaching.

Koenigs adds that 500 applicants will receive permits to purchase their license before the October 31, 2013 deadline, while applicants that do not receive a permit for an Upriver Lakes spearing license will still be able to purchase a spearing license for Lake Winnebago through the October 31, 2013 deadline.

The 2014 sturgeon spearing season on Lake Winnebago, Poygan, Winnecone and Butte des Morts begins Saturday, Feb. 9 and runs for 16 days unless the harvest cap is triggered.

Permit applications can be purchased from authorized license agents, over the Internet through the Department of Natural Resources Online Licensing Center or by calling toll free at 1-877-945-4236.

Cost is $20 for residents and $65 for non-residents. For more information, visit dnr.wi.gov and search keyword “license.”
