When a South Dakotan named Dustin recently went on vacation to celebrate his birthday, he had some fishing in mind. But it’s probably fair to say he could not have imagined what he’d  hook.

As you’ll see in the viral video below, Dustin reeled in a whopping grouper — but not before the fish put up a wicked fight. Just watch.

As you can see from the Facebook post, Dustin was never hurt — and eagerly jumped back into the boat to fight his fish. It was hooked on a 1,000 lb. line.
