Every Freediver’s Worst Nightmare Captured On Film!

WARNING: You will want to watch this video more than once to see where the heck this Goliath Grouper came from!

If you have ever been freediving/spearfishing before, then you know just how painful this is to watch.

Because when you are freediving there is so much effort, time, and precious breath that goes into every kill shot… and there is nothing worse than having your hard work taken away from you…

And when Ben Carlson speared this nice Snapper while freediving, the last thing he saw coming was a hungry Goliath Grouper just waiting to capitalize on Ben’s hard work.

Ben was incredibly lucky to get his spear back, although if you look closely you can tell that the spear was bent a little bit.

And oh, by the way, if you thought that a freediver’s worst nightmare was a shark, you would be surprised to know that most freedivers would rather see a shark than lose a nice fish. Not to mention, Goliath Groupers can be more aggressive than almost all sharks when attacking your fish on a spear (there are of course a few exceptions like nasty bull sharks).

A great video from our friend BlacktipH shows some video proof that Goliath Grouper are more aggressive than sharks. You can watch it here.

Jewfish have become a scourge on the reefs and ledges around Florida. Going from almost wiped out in the early 90s, to over abundance in 2015, there seems to be a few people howling at the FWC, preventing a small, controlled harvest. Call the FWC and say you support good science, not a few screaming activists!!!

Well, “worst nightmare” is a little dramatic don’t u think? I’ve had the same thing happen and lost slip tips, shafts, etc… Even if I lost the entire gun, and fish, still not the worst nightmare. Expensive and startling and frustrating certainly. Getting tangled in the shooting or float line while the Goliath took u down; now that’s nightmare material. Blacking out without a properly trained buddy around, that’s nightmare worthy. Shark attacking you by surprise; nightmare.

Was a fun video though. Reminded me about how mad I felt when I lost a mori slip tip and my fish to a goliath.

My friend and I went to the middle grounds last week and he had about a 6 or 7 pound snapper get stolen by a goliath. It was fun to watch my friend think he stood a chance of catching it on a snapper rod. As we say in the south, “Bless his heart”.
