I'm sure many people on here are jealous of the fish and experience. In the future, though, please try not to hold fish (especially heavy fish like sturgeon) by the gills; it has the potential to do a lot of harm to the fish or even kill it. If you look at other sturgeon photos on the site, you'll see how it is possible to hold large fish without gilling them like that.
