Sawyer Kolowith, 9, of Boise recently caught a massive white sturgeon in the Snake River near Glenns Ferry. The fish measured 8 feet, 7 inches and weighed an estimated 220-plus pounds. Sawyer fought the fish for 1 hour, 10 minutes, then released it. “Sawyer was telling me in the morning he wanted to catch one 30 inches because the biggest fish he ever caught was just under 30 inches,” dad Mark Kolowith said. “We set the bar pretty high. I don’t know that we’ll ever catch anything like that again.”
