Link to Oregonian Article from 5/10

Greed is a bad thing, and when the outlaws can harvest an oversized sturgeon and sell the caviar for up to $100,000 they get to do the time when caught.

I hope they throw the key away.

Makes you wonder how many big females they have harvested and how many more people are doing the same thing right now.

Arrested is one thing, appropriate justice is another. When the dust settles they will most likely recieve a fine of little consequence and suspension of thier hunting and fishing privledges. Big Whoop!!! They probably don't buy tags to begin with. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and suggest some rather un-P.C. ideas. How about permanent deportation for starters for those who immigrated here after ****** thier own homeland waters and fields. We had better put some bite into our game laws now while we still have sustainable game to protect. :mad: :mad:

absolute scum! Hope they really put a hurt on the people. Very sad that some many big beautiful females had to die, they really are the future of this fishery. Go easy on them in the coming months. They are a blast to fight, but take good care to land quickly, have sturdy gear and tackle so you don't leave one to trail around and ingest
a hook, leader and weight.

is it easy to tell if they are male or female or do they have to cut them to find out? i am sure the meat is not very good when they get that big.

they caught these guys but i am sure there are people out doing the same thing or planning to. this is why we need to keep our eyes open for suspicious behavior.

If these fish were cought form a boat, the boat shoud be seized, and sold. Also autos used to transport the fish, and the roe. The jails might be to full to take them into custady but things can be seized, just like drug dealers.
