Winnipeg Jets players Dustin Byfuglien and Matt Hendricks caught a fish big enough eat them.

The two Minnesota natives used their day off to go fishing for gigantic sturgeon on a luxury fishing tour with Sturgeon Slayers on the Fraser River near Vancouver, and they hauled in a gargantuan sturgeon. 

Sturgeon have been around since the days of the dinosaurs, according to Smithsonian

Byfuglien is from Roseau, Minnesota. Hendricks is from Blaine.
