Giant Oregon Sturgeon

I just recieved this email:

FYI: This sturgeon is still alive, just worn out from the fight. They turned him loose after the photo.
<O:pThis Sturgeon was caught on the <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com
Willamette</st1:placeName> <st1:placeType w:st="on">River</st1:placeType> just below <ST1:p<st1:placeName w:st="on">Oregon</st1:placeName> <st1:placeType w:st="on">City</st1:placeType></ST1:p two weeks ago. It weighed out at over 1,000 lbs and measured out
<O:p</O:p

at 11'1". It was 56" around thegirth 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.</O:p>
