Goliath Grouper dubbed 'The Dinosaur'
The group boarded the boat and headed out to open sea, passing the Kennedy Space Center on the way.
After a morning watching his friends catch cobia, kingfish and bonito, Gerson, a Florida-based doctor, decided to try some deep line fishing over a shipwreck site.
“I dropped my line in and within seconds of hitting bottom, I felt a strong jerk. As I started reeling in, the rod bent until the tip was almost in the water. Soon I wasn’t reeling, but instead holding on for dear life as line was running out of the spool at an alarming speed,” he told The Huffington Post.
