Detroit, MI  --  A six-foot-ten-inch fish is back in the Detroit River after being caught last week. 

The Alpena Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office said on Facebook the sturgeon is believed to be a female who has been roaming the waters for over 100 years.  The office noted the "real-life river monster" is one of the largest sturgeon ever recorded in the U.S. 

She was quickly released back into the water after being processed.
