Can Anyone Translate French?
« on: February 02, 2020, 07:57:08 AM »
I don't know much French, but it looks like the caption on this picture says this Sturgeon was caught in Lake Washington back in 1947?  :dunno:
 Anyone know if that could be true?
(I know they still grow some Lobster Sized Crawfish on the bottom of Lake Washington.)

Can't read French but that could certainly be the case. Back when sturgeon fishing was open in Puget Sound, we caught many oversize fish up here and hooked giants we never landed. Could certainly have been big ones in Lake WA before the locks.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

Unfortunately the pic only comes up on Pinterest, itís roughly talking about giant/world record sturgeon lake wa.

My French is a little weak these days, but itís an easy language to learn if used regularly.

Someone with a larger screen might be able to decipher it better.

I remember 10-maybe 15 years back they found a dead one at the Ballard locks, if I remember right it was 12 feet long.

hunthard, That's a pretty good sized one for now a days. Makes you wonder if he was going or coming?  :tup:
(Here's a picture of it surrounded by..... Baby's ?)
Doug

There is no white sturgeon Season in Lake Washington but they are found in greater abundance in the Skagit, Stillaguamish and Snohomish rivers where they can be caught.
 An 8-foot-long sturgeon was found dead in Lake Washington in 2013 and a 5 1/2-foot-long sturgeon was inadvertently netted and released by a University of Washington research team in 2005.
There is also a 1987 photo online of an 11-foot, 900-pound, female white sturgeon that had lived in Lake Washington before she died of what researchers said were natural causes. They estimated she could have been 80 to 100 years old.
