800 lb. White Sturgeon Caught on Fraser River, Canada

Two lucky Sturgeon fishing guests were hoping for a 8 foot Fraser river White Sturgeon when they boarded one of Silversides Fishing Adventures jet boats on the morning of August 5th, 2016. But they would have never expected this whopper of a fish.
This giant Sturgeon measured 11 feet 3 inches measured nose to fork of the tail which would put it’s weight at about 800 lbs. This Sturgeon river monster was caught right in Mission, British Columbia, which claims itself to be the Sturgeon capital of North America and rightfully so. The massive White Sturgeon was promptly released after a few quick pics as per regulations in this highly successful catch & release program.
Fish this big don’t get caught very often. The estimated age of this fish would be over 100 years. White Sturgeon can live for more than 150 years and reach weights of over 1,800 lbs.
