Josh Jorgensen and Dr. Robert Borrego of “BlacktipH Fishing” headed offshore towards a shipwreck off the east coast of Florida, to one of the most successful fishing trips we’ve ever seen! Josh Jorgensen, a well known professions “Extreme Angler” has a deeply ingrained drive for catching massive fish and it sure is evident here!

“BlacktipH Fishing’s” Content has been featured on Discovery, National Geographic, the Today Show, and many other fishing centric outlets!

It all started when Jorgensen and Dr. Borrego began messing with a school of monster Bull Sharks, when several Cobia made an appearance. Eventually Josh hooked on to one of the Cobia and fought it for several minutes when a near by Bull Shark decided it wanted to make that Cobia Dinner!

“Josh tightened the drag and palmed the spool, breaking off the Cobia”

It wasn’t too much longer when another big fish came out to play, actually what seems to have been a whole slew of them: the always coveted Atlantic Goliath Grouper! After tossing some bait in the water Jorgensen got his first bite, a grouper weighing in at roughly 200+ pounds! After a good lengthy fight Jorgensen had the Grouper boat side, and let it go.

But as if that battle hadn’t happened, immediately afterwards:

“Josh and Borrego dropped a huge piece of amberjack in the water”

Almost instantly, an even larger Goliath Grouper took heed of the meal being presented, and went for the rope! The larger grouper put up one hell of a fight, but eventually succumbed to Josh and the Doctor. After finally getting this beast up to the boat, and quickly releasing they were able to estimate the fish weighing in at over 500 lbs!

It’s not too often you get a day like this!
