Q: What happens when you catch a fish that’s nearly as big as your boat?
A: You’d better have a ‘Plan B’.
How awesome that he would catch a fish this big!
How unfortunate that they were in that little bucket when they did.
Where do you even START in scoring this one?
OH HEYYY! Why yes, this is a zebra running through the backyard in Wimauma! "How many times do you go out in your backyard and see a zebra?" Mark Ross laughed. #BecauseFlorida 😂 STORY: http://www.fox13news.com/news/local-news/252910481-storyVIDEO: Mark Ross

His documented one that DIDN’T get away story is better than a lot of the bogus ‘got away’ stories.
Do you call it a draw?
Did the fisherman win?
Maybe the Grouper and the guy with a rod both got points on the board, and the hapless buddy left in the drink watching the paddle drift away is the one who really lost.
How are you scoring it?
In the orginal news piece, it gives their names:
Captain Ben Chancey and Fisherman Captain Jon Black were fishing in a canoe off of Stuart, Florida when a Goliath Grouper capsized their small boat.
The two were able to swim over to a rescue boat, where they reeled the huge fish in.
And before you ask, it was released.
Which means it’s probably still out there.
Click ‘play’ to hear Doug and Rich talk about the connections between hunting and manliness:
Real men are naturally hard-wired to be hunters. True men are providers, protectors, hunters and heroes. To stymie this is to effectively neuter a dude and keep him from what God made him to be; and diminish him to the realm of the effeminate.
They have a Facebook Page, too.
