PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. - A man fishing on a Jet Ski off the coast of Florida hauled in a goliath grouper earlier this week.

The whole thing was caught on camera Monday near Stuart.

"Chew on This" posted the video on its YouTube channel.

"Look at these waves, guys -- huge, huge -- and he's on a Jet Ski," a man on the video can be heard saying.

The man who reeled in the large catch seemed surprised, at first believing it to be a giant pufferfish.

However, upon closer inspection, the Jet Ski-riding fisherman quickly realized it was a grouper.

"I think it's the first time ever in the history someone's caught a giant goliath grouper from a Jet Ski," the man remarked.
