I was staying at the Berkeley Marina Hotel for several days including the day Scott dumped his wife into the bay.... the marina and its ramp was a ghost town as I jogged through it each and every morning at sunrise.

...snips...REDWOOD CITY -- Scott Peterson had the wrong gear, wrong anchor and was in the wrong spot to catch sturgeon the day his pregnant wife was reported missing, a fishing expert testified Monday at Peterson's double-murder trial.

....He said the poles and fishing line found in Scott Peterson's boat were too light for sturgeon. One was more suited for bass or freshwater fish like trout; another had no handle and was "not functional," Cuanang said.

.....Peterson told a detective he is "not a bait fisherman," used lures that day and trolled from his newly purchased boat.

.....Also, trolling for sturgeon -- which can snag the fish's body as a hook moves through the water -- is illegal in California, Cuanang said.

..... But Johnson, the commentator, said Harris might have gone too far when he asked the expert about releasing large fish back into the bay. While Peterson's defenders say dumping a 153-pound body attached to concrete weights might capsize a relatively small boat, Cuanang said he has released fish more than 6 feet long without a problem.

"You just keep pushing them and eventually there's enough body weight (over the side of the boat) and they slide right in," he said.
