Sturgeon Spearing on Lake Winnebago 2020 Season

Lake Winnebago Sturgeon
Lake Winnebago Sturgeon

The 2020 Annual Sturgeon Spearing season is almost here. The season officially begins Saturday February 8 at 7 am.  Here is a link to the DNR Site with latest information and daily harvest totals.  The season lasts until February 23 or until harvest caps are reached. It has been 6 years since harvest caps were reached shortening the 16-day season.

The DNR stated the current sturgeon population on Lake Winnebago is robust with an estimated 24,000 adult males and 18,500 adult females for an estimated total of 42,500 adult sturgeon.

You can follow the action of fish shanties out on Lake Winnebago with the use of the three live streaming cameras on our website. The cameras have a DVR so you can look back at the day’s activities.

Ice conditions are less than ideal due to the warmer weather this year.  There was open water on Lake Winnebago until early January due to strong winds and shifting ice causing large shoves on East and some West shores.

Always know the ice conditions if you plan on going out.  Check with local fishing clubs and bait shops.  Cars and trucks are not recommended.  Knowledge is key to being safe on the ice…So Be Safe!

The Neenah / Menasha Fire & Rescue had their rescue boat out past David Point (SE of Rec Park in Neenah) and only found 4 inches of ice out beyond the crack. 

Follow us and post your experiences out on the lake on our website. Instagram your photos to @foxriversystemwebcam or use the hashtag #sturgeon

Be safe out on the ice.

The Neenah Harbor Cam takes pictures in the morning of the Flag and Cannon in Riverside Park and will display thumbnails above the video.  At night it will take snapshots of Oak Street Bridge next to Theda Clark Hospital.  Below there is a Move History table to show recent camera moves and the next move in the queue. There is also a map that shows the positions of the camera.

We have a search box and Social Media icons for you to follow us on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram. You can see the sidebar which will show recent comments and posts. Please leave comments about the camera, we have more changes coming and we would like to hear from you.

Website Update and Sunrise Images from Neenah Rec Park Camera

Good morning viewers of our new website pages.  We have updated our page to follow the sunrise of Neenah Rec Park Cam. We take multiple snapshots of the sunrise and at sunset and display them as thumbnail images above the live video.  We have programmed the camera to follow the sun as it changes time and azimuth of the sunrise over the year. 

We have added a details chart to follow where the camera is moving and going to the next position. Click on the camera details and see where the camera has been to view more about of the camera. There is a google map under the camera moves table that shows the positions of the camera as you hover over the marker icons.

There is a comment section where we would like to hear from you about the new website and cameras.  Follow us on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter and come back to see the updates of the camera.
