Boy, 9, Catches 600-Pound Fish


"Push him hard now. He'll go. Give him a good boost."

9-year-old Keegan Rothman pushed his massive catch back into the river in British Columbia.

Keegan, who is from New Jersey, was on a weekend fishing trip with his dad when he hooked a 600-pound white sturgeon just hours into the outing.
