Jon Black from the Crazy Lure Tackle shop in Cape Coral Florida caught the largest bottom fish ever from a Kayak in Sanibel Florida. Watch as he screams for his life trying to land this Giant Goliath Grouper. This is the Raw Footage of the take along with a quick slow motion rod break. This fish measured at 83 inches long and over 73 inches in girth putting estimated weight at 552 pounds.
Hold the phone, “Watch as he screams for his life”? Fishing in a man-made harbor, 5-feet away from the dock is the opposite of life threatening unless you’re trying to catch a great white with your wife’s holiday roast. This is the type of dude that loses his shit WAY too much on the Log Flume when you start rocking the boat. But forget about Sally with the pole, how much of a swimming vagina is this Grouper fish? 552-pounds of pure fish meat means you can’t be reeled in by some dude on a kayak with his Fischer-Price rod. That thing is the General Sherman of those waters. Act like it and drag that kayak down to Davey Jones’ Locker.
Fun fact: The Grouper is also known as the Jewfish. I guess it’s my duty to knight Pres as “Grouper” during all Barstool Poker tournaments, and life in general.
