Default What does a 10 foot sturgeon weigh??

Well, three of us tag-teamed on a legitimate 10 footer yesterday above the Washougal marina. It was the largest that I've had the pleasure (or is it misery??) to tangle with. My arms hurt! A long time and one burned-up Diawa later, we got her to the boat, where a quick release hurried her on her way...but not before she slammed the side of the boat with her tail! Wow, what power.

STG...what does a fish like this weigh? Don't believe I could wrap my arms around it's head, just an incredible fish. Unbelievably, all three of us forgot our cameras, that was depressing.

So, FISHFINDER, you got that new reel ordered yet?

It is just an estimate, but check out what my digital weight scale gives - Fred's Digital Weight Scale

I think my sturgeon digital scale is probably one of a kind. I gathered the info from a British Columbia spreadsheet post awhile back and transferred to my program. Big fish!
