BC Anglers Battle 700-Pound Sturgeon

From the Calgary Herald:
A hook baited with salmon meat was enough to tempt a 318-kilogram Jurassic monster from the depths of the Fraser River and more than enough to keep a local fishing guide and his clients busy.

[Guide] Rod Toth was on the river near Chilliwack, B.C., Aug. 27 when he hooked the massive sturgeon. . .

"[My anglers] just went crazy," Toth said. "I don't think we can print some of the words coming out."

What a wonderful fish. Too bad they don't have a broken rod to keep as a real trophy. There was a towtruck business in Mission, BC that advertized in the Yellow Pages that they would wrangle & land sturgeon with the truck. Saw it done once, in the middle of the night.
