Sturgeon: Caught with heavy tackle in bottom-fishing in the larger rivers and estuaries during the summer. There are two species on the Atlantic coast, one with a shorter and blunter nose than the other. The Sturgeon leaps entirely out of the water at dusk. It attains a length of 15 feet and a weight of 1,000 pounds or more. Its mouth is upon the under surface of the head, and it has no teeth; it grubs for its food in the mud. See paragraph in list of fresh water fishes.
