hi carol and richard,

that may be - but since it is me who caught one i hope dave will allow me to propose to let the prize in the pot for the first on expert mode

I think that's a noble gesture and Dave will do so if you want!

I maybe would have done the same.

Regards Richard

Wow, congrats on being the first to land a dinosaur. I've still only seen them rise a few times never got one hooked. That's one heck of a feat. And now the race is on for expert mode...

Congratulations! You are a great fisherman! It's your call on the prize. If you want to leave it in for an "expert mode" catch, that is fine with me.

DCarp (Dave),
Thank you very much for the info on the Sturgeon.  I know that in Maine Sturgeon once swam in Our largest lake (called Moosehead Lake), but the last one caught in that body of water was over 100 years ago.  Like I said, every now and again stories surface of one being caught in the lower streaches of the Kennebec River (below the southern most dam), but they're usually in the 3-4 foot range.  I've only ever seen one, on a boat trip on the lower river.  The fish lept out of the water right infront of our boat!  I distinctly remember seeing the armour like scales on its back. 
Also, Taupo, congradulations! A great catch. Thanks for posting the screen-shots (just incase I'm never able to see it on my screen... :wink: )
The worst day fishing's better then the best day working... But I'd rather have good days fishing.
