Weekly Fish ID-Quiz - Just for Fun !!
Each week we post some new pictures here on the Listening Guide for this week's show, and we leave the names off. It will be a good exercise for you to try to identify the item in each picture. Some pictures will probably be easy to identify, but others will probably be difficult. Tom and Nevin will identify each picture during the first few minutes of this show.

Subject: Sturgeon out of the Willamette River, Oregon City, Oregon, May, 2011
Date: Wed, 1 Jun 2011, 22:04:40 -0700
This is a darn interesting picture and story even if you aren't into fishing, but please show it to anyone you know that likes to fish. FYI: This sturgeon is still alive, just worn out from the fight. They turned him loose after the photo. This Sturgeon was caught on the Willamette River just below Oregon City two weeks ago. It weighed out at over 1,000 lbs and measured out at 11'1". It was 56" around the girth and took over 6 and a half hour ... for the 4 guys taking turns at the reeling it in. Any Sturgeon OVER about five feet has to be released unharmed and cannot be removed from the water. They are brood / breeding stock and probably older than most of us.
Based on what I've read so far, this idea is far healthier for our world than destroying yet more Wetlands so developers can make their Ferrari payments!: http://www.cbsnews.com/ ... channel
Pictures from Bonnie in Iowa of her Home-Made Pond Filter.
In last week's show Bonnie called and talked about the pond filters that she's made. She says her homemade pond filters work great. In the top picture, just above, you can the water flowing back into her pond from the filter. In the second photo you can see part of the filter in the upper right. Even better you can see her goldfish that look wonderful in this picture. This is the now-famous pond that she dug in her backyard a few years ago.
After the show Bonnie sent us another picture, looking down on her homemade pond filter, which is in the blue-green plastic container on the left. Notice that Bonnie has plants growing in the filter. These plants remove fish waste that's dissolved in the pond water and that keeps the water much fresher. A big thank you to Bonnie for sharing her pond with all of us. ;^ }
