I will never forget the day my dad took me to see a special showing of 'Jaws.' It was at one of those $1 matinee places in Billings, MT. Little did I know that the next day my Father planned on taking me fishing...IN A BOAT! Needless to say, my anxiety was though the roof for much of that fishing trip. Just staring off the edge of the boat and wondering what kind of monster was lurking under the surface.

That same fear I felt back then, is something I still something that crosses my mind when I am on water. I stumbled across some footage that reinforces that childhood fear even more.

Granted a sturgeon is not a "man eating" fish. But, the prehistoric fish can still grow to monstrous size. Check out footage of a 8 foot sturgeon nearly wiping out a kayak fisherman in Idaho.
