Man catches record-breaking 500-pound grouper from a kayak
By Inside Edition
Jonathan Black, owner of the Crazy Lure Bait and Tackle shop in Cape Coral, Florida, had quite an adventure when he attempted to catch a grouper weighing over 500 pounds while in a kayak!
After that he managed to lead it to shore where it was measured to be 83 inches long with a 73 inch girth and weighing in at about 552 pounds. Even though he was thrilled with his catch, the fish was then released back in the wild as it's a protected species.
According to Black's Facebook page, fishing for a goliath grouper has not been done from a kayak before and is very dangerous. It's reportedly the largest bottom fish ever caught from a kayak.
