I love jigging for freshwater and saltwater fish. Walleye are fun, but I have to admit hooking up on a 5-15 Grouper is “funner” when I’m jigging in the Gulf of Mexico, Fl.
I was recently filming a Here’s the Catch! saltwater jigging show in about 70′ of water using a 4oz Williamson jigging lure and targeting Snapper when I got a couple of nice surprised with chunky Grouper. They hit hard and as soon as you hook the they head straight for holes in the ocean floor. That’s when you have to have a tight drag and keep them from cutting your line off.
