What Lurks in the Swan River !….

You've got to see this:

 

 

This Sturgeon is Still alive, just worn out from the fight.  They turned him loose after the photo.

This Sturgeon was caught on the Swan just near
Fremantle City two weeks ago.  It weighed out at over 1,000 lbs and measured out at 11'1'. It was 56'' around the girth  and took over 6 and a half hours, & 4 dozen beers, for the 4 guys taking turns at the reeling it in. Tony Harben did a fantastic job of reeling it in which took just over four hours.

Any Sturgeon OVER about five feet has to be released unharmed and cannot be removed from the water.


They are brood breeding stock and probably older than most of us. This one maybe 100 years old.
