WATCH: Florida fisherman catches 552-pound grouper on kayak BY Joel Landau NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Wednesday, May 27, 2015, 12:43 PM Next time he should bring a bigger boat. A Florida man made a once in a lifetime catch when he reeled in a 552-pound grouper fish May 20 while sitting on a kayak in Sanibel Fla. Jon Black, owner of Crazy Lure Bait & Tackle shop in Cape Coral, and Capt. Ben Chancey were filming a spot for the online fishing show "Chew On This" and were trying to land a big catch while on the tiny one person kayak. Be careful what you wish for. The online video shows Black floating by a pier in his green vessel when he started to feel the strong tug on his line. He battled for some time before he finally pulled up the large fish and him and Chancey cheered. "I broke the rod!" Black screeched. "Oh, Jesus." The two men believe they set the record for the largest fish caught on a kayak. They measured it at 83 inches long and more than 73 inches in girth and estimate it weighed 552 pounds. It was then returned to the water. Previous Next Florida fisherman Jon Black caught a 552-pound grouper while fishing in Sanibel Fla. on May 20.
