Bligh, I recognize that boat that now your avatar! I tried to get our broker to list if for a fast sale. We bought our boat in Oakley and love the Delta. But be warned, you must pay the delta troll to enter....

Fast-I don't think that $20k would begin to get that thing from Seattle to SF. We were involved in a business that whose plant was on a 65' x 200' barge and the tug cost to move it from Seattle to AK was $45K. That thing looks like at least a 250 Ton crane. I would guess something in the neighborhood of $5K per day.

Just messaged one of the divers who worked on the job. He says it cost $125K just to bring the barge down from Seattle.

Last summer when we took that boat from Seattle to Stockton, CA I thought the skipper had taken a wrong turn and we'd somehow ended up in the Ozarks. Not only were there some strange looking marinas with strange looking boats, but I kept wondering about the people on them.

OF course that excludes the fine gentlemen who were there to greet us when we arrived at the marina including those who have joined in this thread!

HI GUYS!

HI GUYS!
OK, now I know I need to go there and spend some time.

I grew up in the Missouri Ozarks, and my family were some of the first non indian settlers of the area.

Sometimes boating in the Delta is like taking a trip back in time. The hard part is coming back to the present when it's time to return to the marina.

I'm not sure if I should tell you. I thought it was a carp though. Carp, sturgeon, not sure I know the difference. Looked like it belonged in some ones fish pond.
i took the picture on the delta loop.

My son feeds Cheerios to the fish around our docks and they seem to love them.

Whew...whew....whew....whew...(breathe)...

I promise it won't be there when I return to the delta in 2 months. Just was curious where they are seen in these months in between the spawn and the fall bite. My guess Seven Mile Slough along Brannan Island Rd. Sure looks like a sturgeon to me, but maybe I just see what I want to see.

I've been invited by the California DFW Lead Biologist to participate in the August 2014 capturing, tagging and releasing of sturgeon for research purposes. I'm looking forward to volunteering and learning more about the species.

Fly-Mark has shown us what a sturgeon looks like after you do the "capture and tag" thing. Has the biologist seen the pictures?

Al, just a little pointer for you when out capturing sturgeon with the Cal. DFW. I can't say this strongly enough. DO NOT FILLET THE STURGEON BEFORE RELEASING. That would be very bad form, and probably result in an immediate arrest.
