Man Finds Giant Dead Fish In Lake Washington

SEATTLE (AP) - A Seattle man who came across a giant dead fish as he waterskied on Lake Washington says he first thought it might be a shark.
    
Keith Magnuson now says he thinks the roughly 8-foot-long creature is a sturgeon.
    
The Seattle Times reports (http://is.gd/vghiDP) Magnuson found the fish Saturday.
    
The University of Washington School of Fisheries tied the fish up to a post and the Washington state Fish and Wildlife Department plans to send a biologist to look at it.
    
Fish and Wildlife biologist Annette Hoffman in the north Seattle suburb of Mill Creek says a sturgeon "is not a common fish to find in the lake."
    
She says one found in 1987 was 11 feet long and weighed 640 pounds.
    
Hoffman says the deep water bottom feeders commonly migrate up and down the Columbia River.
