Here’s a big fish story that¬†Coye Price will be telling for the rest of his life.

The 9-year-old hailing from Tennessee hooked a scale busting 79.8-pound sturgeon that outweighs him by nearly 25 pounds.

Price had been competing with his sisters on the trip, who up until that point had been hauling in some hefty catches, telling his father Chris, “I’ve got to catch a big fish.”

According to USA Today, it took Price about 15 minutes to reel in the rare find, which was weighed then released back into the Spencer Creek.
