1,000 lb, 11 foot long sturgeon


Contrary to popular belief, this little fellow was caught on the Fraser River in British Columbia, Canada in 2005. 

Four men battled the fish for about six hours before the sturgeon finally gave up long enough for a picture.  Catch and release is mandatory for white sturgeon, but the big fish measured 11 feet and probably weighed about 1,000 pounds.
