We anchored at roughly the same spot and put the bait back into the water with the current slowing down at the high tide. Things got relatively peaceful until chaos broke out. The #1 rod just hammered down again without any warning and the line just began to peel out and out threatening to rip off the rod holder again! Dave got into his jacket and fighting belt and the battle was on! It took about two or three rod trade offs, for Dave to get his breath back and then take over the battle again. This brute decided to fight the classic battle and launched himself right out of the water for a spectacular breach.
After about 35 minutes and a half kilometer drift down river Dave landed his third personal world record in one day with this beautiful 7 foot 8 inch sturgeon. This will put him into our hall of fame page with the #1 fish in the Silver Club category!

It was a fitting end to a great day and Dave did a fine job. Congratulations Dave!
