Imagine floating down a river and seeing one of these monstah fish jumping straight out of the water and into the air! What a rush, guy!

I grew up in Augusta. My elementary and junior high years on the east side of the Kennebec River and high school years on the west side. I used to walk across the Memorial Bridge high above that mighty stream daily when I went to Cony. I don't remember ever seeing any big fish rocketing out of the water back then.

However, I have had had friends tell about encounters with them when they were out on their boats over the years. I've always kind of wished I could witness one someday but for now cool videos like this one will have to do.

The big fish are called sturgeons. They really are quite a sight to see. Thanks to the Hallowell Post Facebook page for sharing this.
