Grand River Sturgeon Poacher Caught

A few weeks ago I reported that across the lake, in Grand Haven Michigan, a man was caught on camera taking a 5 foot long lake sturgeon which he had snagged in the tail, netted, and then dragged to his truck.

The DNR had offered a $1000 reward to anyone with information leading to his involvement in this crime. Since the reward was offered someone has come forward with information and now a 30 year old grand rapids man will be arraigned on July 9th for taking the sturgeon illegally.

Sturgeon can live to be more than 100 years old, they take 15 or more years to reach sexual maturity, and only spawn every few years.
