    Big Fish



    FYI: This sturgeon is still alive, just worn out from the fight.
    As the sports fishermen they are, they turned him loose after the photo.

    This Sturgeon was caught in the Missouri River, North of Bismarck, North Dakota 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.
