big fish

Jon Black was fishing in his kayak when he landed what could be a record-sized goliath grouper.  He screams like a little girl when he realizes how big the fish is.  The fish was so huge that it broke his pole but he still managed to haul it in.  After it was measured, he released it as the law says that he must.  It is estimated that the fish weighed 552 lbs. making it unofficially the largest ever caught from a kayak. goliath grouper
