Here's a picture of the fish you were asking about. The story appeared in the milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Sunday. You'll need to give them a little info to follow this link but should be able to read the whole story.

White sturgeon out in the NW can break 1,000 lbs.Easy.Saw a picture of some guys here (MD) in the 1880s with an Atlantic sturgeon that looks to be 12-14' long,judging from the men and he mules pulling it ashore.Dave

They have some huge ones at the Tennessee Aquarium. I can believe 180 pounds. They have big ole catfish, really big, there too. Never seen catfish so big.

I have seen only one Sturgeon in my life and that was in a small creek near here...I can easily believe that it went 180...

J C Garland hauled in a 140 lb. catfish. It's mounted and hung in the glass-shop of Drakes Automotive. See it to believe it.
