A grouper caught in a kayak causes this guy to have the best reaction ever!
Here’s a guy that just latched into a grouper that’s almost as big as the kayak he’s sitting in and certainly much heavier.
Watch him scream for his life and try to put the finishing touches on an epic catch.
What happens at the end is just icing on the cake.
According to the YouTube user, Chew On This, this epic catch-and-release was in Sanibel, Florida. It seems Sanibel is home to some enormous goliath grouper.
The weight estimate, taken based on the length and girth of the grouper, is said to be around 552 pounds.
This fisherman’s reaction was the best part! It just goes to show how hard it is to land a huge bottom fish like a goliath, let alone land one out of a kayak.
When the rod broke I almost thought that was it, but by God, he still landed it. When you can catch a fish like that in a kayak you can have any reaction you want.
Congrats to this guy!
