 from a brochure for Fishin' Buddy's Bay in Vacaville, California

"Most fishermen are all too familiar with the tedious process necessary
 to catch a white sturgeon in the conventional manner.  Many a fisherman
 has spent all night on a boat hoping for a chance to catch a 'keeper'.
 In fact, many have fished for the elusive sturgeon for years without

"Now success is virtually guaranteed.  Our sturgeon are stocked in a
 holding area and fitted with special harnesses just prior to being
 released.  The angler, who is provided with a medium-action rod, stands
 at the far end of the facility.  The angler's line is then snapped onto
 the sturgeon's harness and the fish is released into the main area of
 the half-acre pond.  The time required to land the fish depends on the
 angler's skill and ability."

[I'm probably showing my age, but I remember back in the good old days when,
after they'd put your fish in the barrel, you had to point the gun yourself and
you even had to decide whether to use semi automatic or full automatic fire... -psl]
