400+ Pound Grouper Caught from a Paddle Board

Watch this insane video of a 412-pound Goliath Grouper caught from a paddle board off the coast of Florida by angler Ben Chancey!

Chancey, who had never been on a paddle board before, hooked this behemoth in less than an hour of fishing. The beast pulled him off the board multiple times, and he even drops the rod at one point. Thankfully, the rod is tied to the board and the board is tethered to the boat. The grouper has no problem towing the whole ensemble during the fight.

“Next time I’m just going to put on a really big flotation device life jacket and just grab a fishing rod and jump in the water with it,” Chancey said.
