"I'll tell you, it was the hardest 30 minutes I've ever fought a fish," said Kai, who is believed to be the youngest person to catch a "grander" in the area. "When I saw that fish at the end of line, I was just thinking, 'Don't break off. Do not break off.'"

The fish, which died as it was brought to shore, reportedly was shared with people in the area.

"My estimate is today, there are over 100 people that are enjoying that fish," said Jim Rizzuto, Kai's grandfather.
