Viral Watch a Fisherman Reel in an Enormous Grouper From a Paddleboard!
A Florida fisherman's battle with a seven-foot, 400-pound grouper is going viral because he reeled in the mammoth fish from a paddleboard.
Captain Ben Chancey, who hosts a YouTube fishing show called Chew on This, talked to Jon Scott this morning about how he pulled off the catch.
Chancey fell off the board at one point, but he got back on and eventually brought in the grouper.
His rod was attached to the board, which was tied to the boat, preventing the grouper from dragging Chancey away.
Chancey and his crew brought the grouper onboard, took some pictures and set it free.
Chancey runs chartered fishing tours, saying that he specializes in the extreme.
"We like to have fun, challenge ourselves with giant fish," he said.
He said this happened a week ago, and he's still sore from the tussle.
