    Woman Reels In Bottom Feeder

    West Richland woman reels in 330-pound sturgeon on Columbia River



    RICHLAND, Wash. - A West Richland woman caught a 330-pound sturgeon while fishing on the Columbia River Tuesday night.

    Natalie Smith said she was fishing near Richland when she reeled in the 8-foot-5-inch monster fish at about 8 p.m.

    "The most amazing freshwater fish there is and my personal best record landed," Smith wrote in a Facebook post.

    She released the fish into the water, but not before snapping a photo with it. She posted photos and a video of her big catch on social media.

    Smith told KAPP-KVEW that fish of this size are not uncommon in the Columbia River, but a lot of people don't even know they exist because they are bottom-feeders.

    She said her dad hooked a 12-foot sturgeon in the same area a few years ago.

    my kid caught an 8ft Sturgeon on the Vedder, they had to chase it almost a mile with the jet boat, it was too big to pickup the fish so all he could do was get a picture next to it in the water and cuz its catch-and-release ... let it go

    I was wondering the same thing. Based on how its face isn't shown, probably not. Pretty shameful stuff, poor fish.

    That sounds more like the sturgeon caught your kid and your boat.

    I simply don't get people like Mtn Girl or TBSSux. I mean, what's the point? prove how much of an asshole you are? Sorry that the world's not fair, let alone TGR. think the comment someone made about affirmation / attention is spot on. Pretty sad when you have to go to that level; but I suspect both have a pretty firm handle on that fact.

    /end rant

    That's fishing of another sort. NOW... back to women who hunt sturgeon!

    ^ Well, since you brought it up. I was tyring to divert the fight FROM the alpy lake thread; which has historical signficance and is a good thread started by and maintained by good people; to this nothing thread, but I guess now that ain't happening.

    Heaven forbid if we mess up the sturgeon thread.
