Becca Freese of Alvarado, Minn., landed this 50-inch sturgeon Saturday, Jan. 25, on Lake of the Woods while fishing with her boyfriend, Kyle Beaudry of Alvarado, who is helping her hold the fish. She released the sturgeon after a couple of quick photos. “It was an exciting 20 minutes that’s for sure!” Beaudry writes.
