Name: John Blach, Omaha
Species: Lake sturgeon
Location: East Lost Lake in Minnesota
Size: 10 to 15 pounds
Noteworthy: Caught on a bottom bouncer and leech in about 25 feet of water. “We weren’t sure if it was the endangered species of sturgeon or just the run-of-the-mill sturgeon, so we released it. Actually, it was so ugly that we would have released it anyway,” Blach’s brother-in-law Larry Janecek said.
