Of the event Firkus said, "I can't believe I got it. It's a fish of a lifetime." For Firkus’ fish a lifetime was extremely long as Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources experts estimated the fish’s age at “about 100 years.” So what were the major events of Firkus’ sturgeon’s life?

    The End of Jersey Sharking?-1




    New Jersey fishermen could see a shutdown of the summer shark fishery - and the suspension of big-money shark fishing tournaments - because a two-year-old revision of the state's marine fishing regulations was not approved before former governor Jon Corzine left office, industry advocates say.
