Florida Fishermen Catch a Warsaw Grouper That Was Bigger Than a Man


BlacktipH Fishing Show’s founder and producer Joshua Jorgensen set out to catch a Warsaw Grouper alongside Capt. Jason Boyll of SoNar Fishing – a professional fishing charter based in Sarasota, Fla.

After making multiple attempts to catch the deep-water fish, which is known to grow to an impressive size, the duo finally reeled one in at Pulley Ridge.

Within five minutes of fishing, Jason got a bite on his reel.

Both men reeled in the large fish, which Jorgensen estimated took between 15 and 20 minutes of "fight time" and more than 400 feet of hand-cranked line.

"It was a monster! The fish floated to the surface and we all started screaming," Jorgensen explained. 

"We didn’t realize how difficult it would be to bring this fish in the boat. It took four grown men to lift this fish over the gunnels and into the boat."

The video is insane on how they captured this monster fish!
