    Missouri River,
    Another Minnow...


    
    This is a darn interesting picture and story even if you aren't into fishing,
    But please show it to anyone you know that likes to 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,  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.
