Girl Lands Record Black Grouper in Key West

A 16-pound black grouper will likely earn Brielle Bennett a new IGFA female Junior record.

Bennett caught the 16-pound fish off Key West on Nov. 24, 2013 while on vacation with her family. The New Jersey native was fishing with a live grunt when the grouper took her bait and headed for the depths.

She quickly put the screws to the reel and landed the monster in double-quick time.

The fish was weighed and documented before being let loose — none the worse for wear.

The current record is 13 pounds, 8 ounces.
