FoxNews During the NBA offseason, basketball stars tend to do all sorts of exciting things. But for Denver Nuggets forward Wilson Chandler, summertime excitement came in the form of one massive fish. Chandler was deep sea fishing with a few friends when he reeled in a massive 350-pound goliath grouper over the weekend, FoxSports reported. Chandler posted a photo of the big fish to Instagram, above. Though goliath grouper can grow up to eight feet long and weigh more than 600 pounds, it’s a sure thing Chandler was shocked by his catch.
Denver Nuggets forward Wilson Chandler was fishing off the coast of Florida, when he hooked and reeled in this monstrous Goliath grouper, which weighed over 350 pounds. We have seen other huge groupers caught off the coast of Florida, such as a man who caught a 552-pound grouper from a kayak and a man who caught a 500-pound grouper and then named it dinosaur while swimming alongside of it, but this is the first time to our knowledge that a celebrity landed a grouper this large. However, Wilson Chandler is not the first celebrity to make news for catching a huge fish this week, guitar icon Eric Clapton caught a record breaking salmon while fishing in Iceland.
