Mike Trout went fishing and his group caught a 550-pound monster (Pictures)
Is there anything Mike Trout can’t catch? The reigning AL Rookie of the Year (and AL MVP snub) was in Key West, Fla., over the weekend. Trout, his girlfriend, and some family went fishing, and they had a heck of a catch.
Trout’s girlfriend, Tara Cox, tweeted the picture you see above and says the group caught a 500-pound goliath grouper. Another Trout family member, Tyler, says the grouper was 550 pounds and over five feet long. He shared another picture of their catch:
The fish was so large, he says they couldn’t even get it into the boat. That’s probably a good thing for them. Based on our research, Atlantic goliath groupers are critically endangered. We’re guessing nobody on board knew that at the time of the catch, so it’s not like they did anything wrong, but it’s probably best that they let it wiggle off the hook — that is, if they correctly identified the massive fish.
