However, upon closer inspection, the Jet Ski-riding fisherman quickly realized it was a grouper.”I think it’s the first time ever in the history someone’s caught a giant goliath grouper from a Jet Ski,” the man remarked.
Catching giant Goliath Grouper is challenging under the best of conditions. These powerful fish break fishing rods in half like toothpicks. These are challenging fish to reel in even when you’re standing on dry/stable/flat ground.
Fishing from a Jet Ski in rough seas off the coast of Florida makes this a total beast of a different nature. You’re contending with the massive fish pulling your Jet Ski around while trying to maintain balance.You don’t want to the rod to pull you over and tip the Jet Ski, and you have to be mindful of the waves that are constantly rolling through and tipping your Jet Ski.
