(CTV News)   800-lb, 11.5-foot sturgeon caught in BC, may be over a century old. Thankfully it was released so it may continue to make little sturgeons who will all not believe daddy's human story   (bc.ctvnews.ca) divider line

"...and there was nothing to breathe in this vacuum, and the creatures did stuff with my mouth. Then there were all these clicking noises, and as I'm suffocating and they keep making noises at me, suddenly I was back in the water. Aliens are real. They're real, and while these ones let me go, what happens to all the fish that disappear in a flash of net or the scream of a wire line?"

All of the sturgeons with charter boat catch-and-release stories get upstaged by the jerk with the floating surimi factory story.

Ben is a braim sturgeon.  It's a niche field that's often confused.

Simply: confused.

But Al's song is Like a Surgeon - so this is a parody of his song, which I think is something he knows is protected.

The wife and I recently went Sturgeon fishing (barbless hooks and release).

They fight like literal demons. Even in the 5' range they can tear off hundreds of feet of line and rip straight to the riverbed half a dozen times after a fifteen minute fight.

When the guide described the process for anything over 6': cut anchor and chase and plan on a half hour or more fight: no thanks.

Would recommend for sport fishers.

Man, if you're a gay guy (or I suppose a gal) into the scruffy/bear/outdoorsman look (as I understand it), there is a whole lotta bait in that water for you as well. Geez, Canucks, save some testosterone for the rest of us (with a couple notable exceptions in the pic).

That does not look like an 800lb fish

Abe Vigoda's Ghost: That does not look like an 800lb fish


So in your expert opinion, what does this fish weigh? It's clearly a lot bigger than any two of the humans in the pic put together, and they're not 98 pound weaklings.

I was thinking more like 783 pounds. But definitely not 800.

Sometimes you have to wait, but sometimes the fish just bites the bare hook as soon as you drop it in the water. I mean, cast and boom, you hooked one.


I'd never known another way to get that feeling...

Until today.

The only way to be sure is to cut them open and count the rings.  Then you'll know how old they are.

If it's so niche, how do they get so many bikers to show up each year?
