Best Fishing Video Ever: Giant Grouper Eats Shark At Side Of Boat

Most people would consider a four foot blacktip shark to be the top of the food chain. Wrong!

This video went viral immediately this week when it was posted on YouTube. It’s easy to see why. This insane footage of a giant fish surfacing to eat a shark struggling on a fishing line off the coast of Bonita Springs, Florida, is an incredible display of power.

Somewhat ironically, many deep sea anglers have to work hard to avoid getting “sharked” when they have another fish on the line. Large sharks are known to nab tuna, wahoo and even large marlin while being landed. This grouper turns the tables.
