Jumping sturgeon catches Maine family off-guard
BATH (WGME) -- An unexpected guest for some boaters was caught on camera.
Christina Roy says a large sturgeon jumped in their boat while in Merrymeeting Bay along the Kennebec River.
Roy says they were headed from South Gardiner to Bath, when the sturgeon jumped in their boat and hit her aunt.
She says her pulse almost hit 160 beats per minute while the fish was in the boat.
After a bit of a struggle, they managed to get it out of the boat, back into the water and now they have one heck of a fish story to tell.
