God created this!

Genesis 1:20-23
And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

This was Sturgeon was caught on the Willamette River, in Oregon about 2 weeks ago. . .

I had to post this photo that I got this afternoon because of how amazing it is. I tried to get it larger, but the settings won't cooperate with me. Here are it's stats:

Weight: 1,000 lbs
Length: 11' 1"
Diameter: 56"

It took 6 hours and 4 men taking turns to finally reel the monster of a fish in. Any Sturgeon over 5' has to be released for breeding.


God's handiwork is, in a word, Amazing! However, this fish is exactly what creeps me out about swimming in open water.

Hi :)

This is indeed a large fish and the quote from the Bible is very inspiring.

This fish doesn't look dangerous. On the other hand it looks very delectable. Perhaps this will be good enough to feed all the guests in a wedding.

Many thanks for sharing.

Best wishes :)
