In the video, an Alberta man named Braeden Rouse can be seen fishing on a kayak with his girlfriend, Sidney Kozelenko. Braeden understands that he has hooked on to something big in a few minutes.

However, The entire video was shared on Sidney's Facebook page and has been viewed by thousands so far. Netizens were stunned to watch the giant Sturgeon fish and expressed their amazement in the comment section.
