We fished about 70′ water using 2 & 3 oz. egg sinkers with chunks of baitfish and squid to target 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!
We had lot’s of action and probably landed about a dozen nice grouper. You can see how hard these fish fight by the bend in Barb’s Rapala Magnum rod.
