Like A Sturgeon, Caught for the Very First Time.

January 31, 2009

Frenzy

This record Sturgeon was caught on the Willamette River just below Oregon City two
weeks ago. It weighed out at over 1,000 lbs and measured out at 11’1′. It
was 56′ around the girth and took over 6 and a half hours, and 4 dozen
beers, for the 4 guys taking turns at the reeling it in.

Any Sturgeon OVER about five feet has to be released unharmed and cannot be
removed from the water.

They are brood, breeding stock and probably older than most of us.

FYI: This sturgeon is still alive, just worn out from the fight. They
turned him loose after the photo.

    That huge bitch is Canadian! Caught on the Fraser River in British Columbia, Canada a couple of years ago… http://www.hoax-slayer.com/giant-sturgeon.html

    But either way, it is indeed an awesome fish!
