A Kamloops, B.C., man is celebrating after landing one of the biggest fishever caught in the Fraser River — the second giant fish caught in the river in recent months.
Norman Daley was out on a company fishing tour near Chilliwack Friday when he landed a white sturgeon more than three-and-a-half metres long and weighing nearly 500 kilograms.
“The first thing we saw was its tail and we went ‘Holy smokes, that's a monster fish,’” said Daley. “Twenty minutes later, we got it to shore and we found out how big it was.”
