Kayak Fisherman Catches Monster in Florida

A man in a kayak — who could have just as easily been standing (securely) on the walkway RIGHT BY HIM — hooked quite the fatty!  

The YouTube description is in Russian.  I ran it through the ol’ Google Translator and discovered these details:

John Blake catches bottom fish largest ever of kayaking in Sanibel Florida . He's trying to catch the giant sea perch Goliath. This fish was the size of 210 cm in length and more than 185 cm in circumference and weighing about 250 kg

I grew up with a small 2-acre pond in my parents' backyard. I fish by tying fishing line, hook, and bait to an empty water bottle and tossing it out on the water. I then sit on the dock and drink beer and wait for the bottle to get dragged around by some catfish, and proceed to chase it around in the paddle boat.
