Keith Magnuson of Seattle was waterskiing on Lake Washington Saturday when he happened upon the massive fish. He and friends called state wildlife officials who said they plan to inspect the curious finding, which Magnuson said he left tied to a post near shore.
hmmmmm....when you have like 30 coincidences, are they still just a coincidence?
White Sturgeon live to be up to 100 years old, and generally are 6' long by the time they are 25 years old. So this Sturgeon had maybe 60 years of life left.
White Sturgeon can live to be over 100 years old. The rate of growth is dependent on water temperature. Typically, they reach six feet long around 25 years of age, showing that these fish do not grow as quickly as many other fish.
