That first reel he starts with is Definitely a 12/0 Senator. The Black and Gold one on that Massive roller rod is a Shimano Triton Beast Master.
Definitely Old School. Wink

Why would you need such a large reel?  Longest run seemed about 50 yards.

The Tank woulda whooped some grouper butt.

I was going to say, do they not have gonads (I am trying not to break the 12 year old rule). Very impressive fish but you honestly have to wonder what the plan is here with such a long but rod wedged between the legs? They can bring that fish out much quicker by using a rod bucket/harness and much easier. Amazing stuff on youtube, they should put a "lack of common sense" warning on some of these videos. Maybe I am missing something and this is a unique fishing style? Maybe they are monks from a fishing monastery and they are chastising themselves for their sins like the knights templar that wore scratchy sheep skin underwear  Roll Eyes

I hear what you guys are saying, but you got to admit the fish was brought in and still strong when he released it.
I'm not sure I was going to lean forward and put my arm in the water though, I've seen those take in a hole shark in one gulp Undecided

 That is or was the resident Jewfish at the 15th Street boat ramp in Fort Lauderdale. He has lived there for a while and eats the fish carcasses that people throw in when they clean fish at the ramp. The ramp is very close to Port Everglades and not very far "up river". Neat stuff from shoreline fishing although it is like catching your pet.

  Thanks for the video,  and not bad,  I mean fairly well done,  impromptu stuff.  We have resident sea lions  where I live,butt we would get in trouble as they are protected mammals,  but they would put on a pretty good fight.   The charter boats clean their fish daily and throw the carcasses over the side,   some think its cute to lay the carcass on their swim step and make them jump up onto their boat for a snack.

   I was thinking a shark or sturgeon at first when watching the guy?    Notice his chums were sorta laid back.   Looked like some free fun.

What a coincidence I watched a couple of his videos this weekend and some other Florida grouper fishermen....all seemed to have the same sit on the butt and pull hard technique.......I wouldnt use that style of fishing without a cup  Shocked    Bill
