Dan,
You are right, so far as I know. But the original statement was:

"They said they are the largest freshwater fish in the US, and can grow up to 10 feet long and weigh over 300lb!!"

Which ignores the White Sturfeon both as a fish and as a game fish..and it is a good game fish....just not a fly fishing fish. I have tried...so far...no love.

There is so much hyperbole these days, especially on line. So much sounds good if you say it real fast and everyone has checked their brains at the door. Is it so hard to be accurate, add "one of the" to the statement??

That question is not aimed at you...but the producers of the show.
