Two Winnipeg Jets stars aren’t spending all of their off-season on the golf course.

Instead, Andrew Ladd and Dustin Byfuglien spent the weekend sturgeon and fly fishing near Chilliwack, B.C. Ladd posted a photo of himself and Byfuglien over the weeking, holding up a sturgeon they caught.

The company the pair were guided by, Sturgeon Slayers, appears to be a favourite of NHL players. A weekend earlier, the company’s Twitter feed posted pics of Phoenix Coyote captain Shane Doan and retired teammate Adrian Aucoin fishing, as well as one of Tampa Bay Lightning teammates Eric Brewer and Keith Aulie holding up an eight-foot sturgeon.
