There are certain spots where big game can be caught from the shore. I’ve posted videos and written about several of them here on these pages. Still, it’s certainly not an expectation that when fishing from the beach that you’ll get into big fish. Typically, the fishing is just a diversion from relaxing on the sand or frolicking in the surf.

I don’t think this couple expected to hook into this massive grouper when visiting the beach at Sanibel, Florida. The woman in the video is fishing pretty heavy. Maybe they were hoping for a shark? You just never know what might happen when wetting a line in the ocean.
