If you want to land a goliath grouper, you’ll need something bigger than a canoe.
Unless, of course, you’re a part of Chew On This, a group of fishermen who specialize in catching big, aggressive fish on some of the flimsiest “vessels” imaginable.
Chew On This’ videos have been features on Discovery, National Geographic, Fox News, ESPN, Fox Sports, The Weather Channel and many more.
Watch today’s video, and you’ll understand why.
Captain Ben Chancey and Captain Jon Black attempt to catch a goliath grouper on a regular old canoe. It goes about as well as you’d expect.
Amazingly, Ben manages to get the massive fish to the surface before the canoe tips over and they’re left stranded in the water — along with four sharks trailing the boat.
Remarkably, Ben still has hold of the rod.
“Come get me!” he screams to the support boat. They motor on over and pick him up, leaving Jon to corral the canoe.
Ben makes sure to get the rod onto the support boat before he worries about his own safety.
He manages to get aboard, and the fight resumes.
After getting the fish to the boat, Ben does what any sensible fisherman would do: he heads back to the still-flipped canoe.
