Florida firefighter spears massive 409 lb Grouper; may be largest ever

SHARE


While most men exaggerate about the size of fish they catch, this Florida firefighter needs not add a single ounce to his claim after landing what may be the world’s largest Warsaw grouper over the weekend.

Bradenton fireman James Taylor caught the grouper 85 miles off the coast of Saint Petersburg during an annual spearfishing tournament, landing the 409 lb behemoth at around 250 feet below the surface.

According to ABC Action News, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission weighed the fish and Taylor is waiting on confirmation to determine if his Warsaw grouper is the largest ever speared.

In 1985, a 436 lb Warsaw grouper was caught off the coast of Florida with a rod and reel.

An experienced boater and fisherman, Taylor is a member of team trident.
