A man who caught a 300-pound Atlantic sturgeon could be sentenced to a year in prison and fined $1,000, officials said. Ron Mann was charged Monday with fishing without a commercial license and illegally setting a net. Wildlife officials were also upset because the sturgeon was female and the roe was lost. Mann, 24, of South Berwick, caught the fish in the Salmon Fall River. He described it as the "catch of the day, the year, the century." But his bragging caught the ears of local officials.

At the end of the Newport Pier, the word "Pops" is carved into the weathered wooden railing on which anglers for decades have rested their fishing rods. "An older guy used to have a captain's chair there. It was 6 feet off the ground. And he'd have pictures of fishermen and all their catches from this pier," said Mike Gorman, 39, a Costa Mesa angler who has been fishing off the Newport Pier for 30 years.
