Posted on April 28th, 2015

italo_grouperWinds were favorable today and we headed out about 20 miles into the Gulf of Mexico in search of tasty Red Grouper.

These fish have sharp teeth and once hooked, they immediately try and take your line under sharp-edged “ledges”. This is where it”s crucial to use a good leader like the Sufix 100% Fluorocarbon Leader in 50 lb. test, and to have your drag set very tight!
