This is not something one would expect to catch through the ice by accident.
Just outside of Bay City, Michigan, flows the Saginaw River. One resident of that city hooked into a something he just wasn’t expecting while fishing for perch and walleye on that very river. Almost two hours later, the lucky angler hauled in a giant 64 inch Michigan sturgeon, with a little help from his friends.
Luckily, the ending was caught on a bleep-filled video that pretty dang funny to watch.
Tom Mills had just tossed a perch in his ice fishing bucket when the big sturgeon hit. This video shows the exact moment when the prehistoric monster was pulled out onto the ice.
Rigged with only six pound line, according to the story, the big Michigan sturgeon spooled Mills six times down to the point of breaking him off, but he able to get his line back to play the fish back to the top. Eventually, they were able to grab the tail. The rest you just witnessed was on the video.
If you were like me, you couldn’t help but laugh at all those bleep words in the video. I know I would have been doing the same thing!
