WATCH: Florida fisherman catches 552-pound grouper on kayak

Next time he should bring a bigger boat.

A Florida man made a once in a lifetime catch when he reeled in a 552-pound grouper fish May 20 while sitting on a kayak in Sanibel, Fla.

Jon Black, owner of Crazy Lure Bait & Tackle shop in Cape Coral, and Capt. Ben Chancey were filming a spot for the online fishing show “Chew On This” and were trying to land a big catch while on the tiny one person kayak.

Be careful what you wish for.

The online video shows Black floating by a pier in his green vessel when he started to feel the strong tug on his line. He battled for some time before he finally pulled up the large fish and him and Chancey cheered.
