While fishing the Crosthwait Memorial Fishing Tournament, Capt. Paul Christie and his team, Jumbo Shrimp, reeled in a huge warsaw grouper, or as it's referred to throughout the video above, a "game changer." 

"Game changer. That's a game changer right there," says an onlooker as the massive goliath grouper is hoisted from the boat.

According to the Miami Herald, it took team Jumbo Shrimp 30 minutes to pull in the 347 pound game changer, or goliath grouper. 

"At first I was convinced he hooked the bottom, but he was swearing he had a fish,” Christie said to the Herald. “We were all helping, trying to get the fish to move up and it wasn’t really doing anything. The line was slowly coming in and it took a little while to realized it was hooked, that’s when I knew it was a fish."
