9-year-old reels in fish that might be older than most people

A 9-year-old kid from New Jersey made the catch of his life when he hooked a 600-pound great white sturgeon in Canada, a fish that might actually be older than most people.

Kegan Rothman went on vacation with his dad Dan to Canada last month, and one of their activities was a guided fishing trip on the Fraser River near British Columbia. Dan Rothman and guide Ben Trainer helped the boy reel in the monster fish, and even with their assistance it took two hours.

CBC News reported that the fish was eight feet long and weighed in at 600 pounds. Here's the other thing. The fish might be decades old — at least that's what Trainer told CBC News.

Trainer speculated that the fish could even be 75 years or older, considering its size.
