Got Fish!!!! Ontario Fish Story (a big one!)
FYI: This Sturgeon is Still alive , just worn out from the fight.
They turned him loose after the photo.
This Sturgeon was caught at TWO CREEKS CONSERVATION AREA, Wheatley, ON (at Lake Erie ) 11/19/2007
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
Any Sturgeon OVER five feet has to be released unharmed and cannot be removed from
They are brood/breeding stock and probably older than most of us.
