About Grouper Fishing
The gag grouper is one of the most sought-after catches. They are aggressive, and they put up a hard fight. They also eat almost anything, from small fish to crabs and shrimp. They go after live bait quickly, and sometimes you can get away with using a butterfly jig or bucktail jig.
You can find grouper fish in deeper water in warm months and shallow water during cooler months. At Aquatic Escapes, we understand the art of grouper fishing. These fish love to feed around a structure, so let Captain Jarrod lead you right to their spot.
Some of the fish you may catch on your grouper fishing charters include:
- Black grouper. These are one of the bigger types of grouper, weighing up to 100 pounds.
- Gag grouper. Gag grouper looks like black grouper, but are slightly smaller.
- Goliath Grouper. Goliath grouper is the largest member of the family. They can weigh over 800 pounds and fight hard when you hook them. However, you cannot keep these fish, as they are a protected species.
