The only 100-pound fish taken Friday was a 100.1-pound, 67.1-inch female registered at Paynes Point south of Neenah by Kane Olson of Neenah, according to the state Department of Natural Resources.

That raised the season total to 1,376 sturgeon, including 1,043 on Lake Winnebago. The other 333 fish were speared on the upriver lakes of Butte des Morts, Poygan and Winneconne, where the season was closed earlier this week.
