It's jumping sturgeon season, son

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission released a cautionary video today aiming to remind everyone of one simple truth, sturgeons will knock you out, son. 

As you can see in the video above, sturgeon are not to be trifled with and the FWC highly recommends staying out of there way. 

Last year, sturgeon-related knockouts in Florida resulted in eight injuries and one fatality and this year, these meaty fish have already claimed their first knockout. 

Keep your guard up, son.
