This Sturgeon was caught on the Willamette River just below Oregon 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 and 4 dozen beers for the 4 guys taking turns reeling.
Thanks Barb H.
I can believe it took 6 hours as I have caught these tough fighting fish in the Columbia River in Oregon
