If you’re planning on taking a Florida vacation in the Gulf Coast an you love to eat saltwater fish, grunts are one of the most common off-shore reef-fish. While most grunts average less than 12″ long, if you fish the right areas you can catch grunts that can average 2-4 lb!
One of the best ways to fish for them is to use a sliding sinker rig and #4 saltwater bait hook with either a live shrimp or a chunk of freshly cut squid. The key is to fish it near the bottom. Larger grunts are great spots and taste great deep-fried or prepared on the grill!
