What happens when you put the strongest man up against the strongest fish?
Is there anything Josh Jorgensen hasn't tried yet? This guy has seemingly dabbled in everything Florida's saltwater surroundings have to offer, hasn't he? While his resume of Florida offshore fishing is impressive, there's little doubt he has a favorite fish, and that's the Goliath grouper.
He's taken countless people out with him to experience one of fishing's most intense exhilarating thrill rides, but this time he upped the stakes just a bit. Instead of inviting just any familiar face, he decided to select some of the internet's strongest men to go toe to toe with his longtime rivals. Perhaps he was as curious as the rest of us, or maybe he knew exactly how it would go down.
One thing is for sure, though: none of these guys knew what they were in for. Take a look as JujiMufu (fitness freak and social media celebrity), Devon Larratt (World Arm Wrestling Champion and ex-special forces), and Layne Norton (World Champion powerlifter and fitness expert) step in the ring.
Watch the video below:
If a Goliath grouper was going to pull an entire rod and reel in the water, you surely wouldn't expect it to fly from the hands of that guy, would you? Watching these unbelievably fit individuals use all of their might to keep up with a wild animal truly speaks to the power of these fish.
While they all had the opportunity to lay hands on their own fish, not one of them made it happen without any help. That said, this video definitely eliminates any confidence I ever had of catching a Goliath grouper on my own.
