138 lb. Sturgeon...French River, Ont...8lb line.....2hr fight....released. That was Georgian Bay twenty years ago.

Today: algae killoff induced botulism=fish kills, various invasive species and the stocking of sport fish (salmon and rainbow) has decimated what was once a sport fishermans dream come true. Bass, walleye, sturgeon, whitefish, crappie and many others are fast disappearing.

15 yrs. ago the released salmon would weigh in at an average of 20-25 lbs.......some reaching well into the 30-40lb. range. Today are on edge of starvation with average weights of 10 lbs and under. Still being stocked!
