Grand River Michigan, Sturgeon Poacher

Some news from just across lake Michigan for you this afternoon. Earlier this week a man in Michigan snagged a 5-foot lake sturgeon, a photo from a bystander shows him with it on a blue stringer, he is also holding a large net.

He snagged the sturgeon in the tail, got it to shore, and proceeded to haul it to his truck and drive away, despite calls to release it. Sturgeon are endangered and may not be kept save a few waters in the mid-west. Many live to be over 100 years old and due to the size of this one, it can be determined that this was no young sturgeon.

Being a photographer my favorite part of this photo is that you can see the guy's blackberry taking a photo of the guy too. You can read the full story by clicking on the photo.
