Man Overboard

Dustin from South Dakota is on vacation to celebrate his birthday.  He hooked into a HUGE Goliath Grouper.  Watch as this massive fish pulls him overboard!  No worries, Dustin was NOT harmed and eagerly jumped back into the boat to fight his fish, which was still hooked on the 1000lb line.  Could you land a fish after falling in?!

As he fights to reel the fish in, Dustin falls head-first and slips into the water.

He quickly jumps back into the boat to continue reeling the huge grouper in and then poses for photos with his big catch.
