Gone Fishin'



Another Minnow
This is a darn interesting picture and story even if you aren't into fishing,
But please show it to anyone you know that likes to fish.
FYI:  This sturgeon is still alive, just worn out from the fight.
As the sports fishermen they are, they  turned him loose after the photo.
This Sturgeon was caught on SECORD LAKE, MICHIGAN 
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 at the reeling it in.
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.

No fish were harmed in the making of this post.
If you ignore the sore lip.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Oar it could take a while to roe around it as well.

You don't need to be a brain-sturgeon to work that one out.  Wink

You'll soon get into the swim of things Mand. Sadly, I think artmo's having trouble with the net in the states, but I'm sure we can coddle the thread along until he gets back.
