How Do You Rig a Sturgeon Fishing Line?

Sturgeon fishing can be a great way to get out and enjoy nature. It is also a great way to provide a meal for your family.

However, if you want to be successful at sturgeon fishing, you need to know how to rig your line properly. Here are some tips on how to rig a sturgeon fishing line.

Choose the Right Line:

The most important thing when rigging a sturgeon fishing line is choosing the right type of line. Generally, monofilament lines are best for sturgeon as they provide good abrasion resistance and strength. You should also consider the diameter of your line as well as its breaking strength when selecting the right type of line.

Attach the Weights:

Once you’ve selected the right type of line for your needs, attach weights to it in order to ensure that your bait is near the bottom where sturgeons like to feed. Depending on the size and weight of your bait, you may need one or several weights attached along the length of your line.

Set Up Your Hooks:

Next, attach hooks onto your lines by tying them with sturdy knots such as Palomar or Trilene knots. For lighter baits such as worms, small hooks should be used while bigger baits such as herring require larger hooks. Make sure that each hook is securely attached so that it won’t come loose during casting and retrieving.

Attach Your Bait:

Finally, attach your bait onto each hook so that it can attract sturgeons. Make sure that each bait is securely attached as well so that it won’t come off during casting or retrieving. The type of bait you use will depend on what type of fish you are trying to catch and what they are feeding on in their natural environment.



Rigging a sturgeon fishing line properly can help ensure success when out on the water. Start by choosing the right type of line for your needs then attach weights followed by hooks and finally add your bait!

With these simple steps, you can have an enjoyable time out in nature catching some delicious fish!
