Sportsmen Scuttlebutt

November, 2006


Here is a picture of a Big Sturgeon that Carol Hunter hooked on Nov 4, 2006 during the annual Sportsmen fishing derby. It took 6 of us, Carol, Ted, Tim, Neal, Charlie and myself to get it next to Neal's boat so we could release it. We fought it for 2 hrs.

The fish was about 8 ft long and weight over 200 lbs.
