    SHAWANO, Wis. — The state Department of Natural Resources has tagged a 125-year-old sturgeon that's the size of a football linebacker and is the largest on record in Wisconsin. Officials found the 7-foot-3-inch long, 240-pound female sturgeon in the Wolf River near Shawano on Tuesday, DNR sturgeon biologist Ron Bruch said. He estimated the fish was born around 1887, when Grover Cleveland was president.
