WATCH: Giant Fish Capsizes Boat Off Coast Of Stuart

WARNING: Contains Some Profanity

 

Video has gone viral showing two fishermen in the waters off Stuart, attempting to catch a giant Goliath Grouper, when the fish capsizes the men's small canoe.  

According to the YouTube post, Captains Ben Chancey and Jon Black were eventually able to reel in the grouper, estimated by one of the men in the video to weight about a thousand pounds.  

One man remained in the water, holding onto the upside down canoe, while the other climbs onto a support boat that had been filming the entire thing, and catches the fish, before letting it go. 

It is illegal to keep Goliath Grouper, though there have been recent reports of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission considering allowing it, as the population has grown.
