No. 8: Goliath Rod Breakage
Unlike the makos, the goliath grouper does not go up. Instead, it goes down. Way down. With purpose. These fish are absolute brutes, as Capt. Ben Chancey (and his fishing rod) find out at 1:25. Ben’s hamming it up a bit for the camera, of course, but no doubt this battle was taxing. And what’s funniest, perhaps, are the YouTube comments regarding Ben’s comments!
