Pops went ahead and showed @fish4life1994 and I what’s what! He landed this 8 foot 1 inch long white sturgeon after fight that lasted just under an hour, took us through other angler’s lines, into uncomfortably shallow water, and a full ¼ mile away from where we had been anchored. Pops’ arms aches for days afterward, but he still can’t hide a grin when he tells people about this big ol’ dinosaur.
Estimated at about 285 pounds, this is the largest fish any of us have ever encountered in person, and it required total cooperation between all three of us to get it to the boat.
