Ouch! First it's carp nailing people in the Missisippi, & now it's
sturgeon on the Suwanee.

Oh , by the way, this reminds me:
Many of you may remember that I once mentioned that a sturgeon was
caught in the Yellow River, and that it resulted in a lot of hinky
behavior among some agencies and a goofy lead poisoning scare. It turns
out that the species in question was Gulf Sturgeon. When Todd & Ryan &
I sampled the Yellow on Easter, there was a sign posted-in-a boat ramp
park area warning people against molesting this fish.
