Video: Battling the World’s Strongest Fish

Josh Jorgensen, the presenter of YouTube’s largest saltwater fishing show, hosted three absolutely massive men off the coast of Florida to catch the world’s strongest fish, the Goliath Grouper.

Goliath Grouper are the largest member of the bass family in the Atlantic Ocean. They can reach up to 800 pounds and grow to 8.2 feet long. In Florida, the largest Goliath Grouper ever caught with hook and line was 680 pounds. Just the bait used to lure these fish is huge. Back in July 2018, Fox News published a video of a 500 pound Goliath Grouper gulping down a three foot shark.

During the attempts to reel in each Goliath Grouper the group hooked, the whole team had to work together to hold whoever was reeling back from being pulled into the water by the fish. As Jujimufu said in the beginning of the video, “It’s like catching a car, right?” He finally landed one on his third attempt after losing the rod on the second.

It’s important to note that all Goliath Grouper were immediately released after being pulled to the boat.

Video: Kayakers Too Close To Calving Glacier

Two friends on a camping and kayaking trip in Alaska got more than they bargained for when they were almost killed by a calving glacier. After setting up camp by the Spencer glacier, the two decided to inflate their packrafts and explore by water. Hearing parts of the glacier collapsing into the water, they paddled over to check out the commotion, and after coming very close to the glacier, sat back and watched the action from what they hoped would be a safe distance. Soon after, an

Wolf Attacks Camper In Banff National Park

A lone wolf attacked a camper inside a tent last Friday in an extraordinarily rare show of aggression. The attack occurred at 1 a.m at the packed Rampart Creek Campground off Icefields Parkway in Banff National Park, with the wolf biting the camper’s arm and hand through the tent. After nearby campers scared off the animal, the victim reported the incident and was transported to the hospital. An inspection of the tent and immediate vicinity showed no sign of any animal attractants, and
