There are so many good reasons to invest in Captiva and Sanibel Island real estate. Sometimes, the best reason is the one that is hardest to catch.
Local fisherman Jon Black has been receiving local, regional, and national press for the estimated 552-pound grouper that he caught while kayaking off the coast of Sanibel Island.
According to the Sanibel-Captiva Islander, “Friends had been filming a spot for the Chew on This Fishing Charters video when the grouper swallowed a 10-pound jack hooked to Black’s fish pole.” With a video to prove it, Black really doesn’t have to exaggerate the size of this monster fish.
This story, was first shared in an online YouTube video titled, Cape Coral Man lands Largest Kayak Bottom Fish Ever!” This video alone has received over five million views as of the writing of this article.
Jon Black is the owner of local tackle shop, Crazy Lure Bait & Tackle Shop, near the Caloosahatchee River in Cape Coral, Florida. Truly, he was the most equipped member of this particular outing and the best person for the job of reeling in this mammoth fish.
More importantly, the media coverage Black has received for his extraordinary catch is a testament to his years of experience and hard work. Whether you’re a Sanibel Island realtor or a local business owner, it’s always good when people excited about what you do and the place you call home.
