I am blessed to be hosting the www.thecatchtvshow.com that covers a variety of saltwater action. When I’m filming down in Florida a “go-to” species that everyone loves to target and enjoy is the Grouper family.
Among the different species of Grouper, the Red Grouper is one of the most plentiful that you can catch in good size without going many miles off-shore.
In-fact, some of the best Red Grouper fishing is in water depth of 50-65′ just fishing along the bottom using either a small live baitfish like a pinfish, a chunk of frozen Threadfin Herring or Sardine, or simply be jigging a 1 – 2 oz vertical jigging spoon. The only challenge is that when you hook one you have to keep it from getting your line caught up on bottom obstructions!
One of the scrappiest fish that we target sometimes fishing in deeper Gulf waters over reefs and wrecks is the “bandit-striped” Almaco Jack.
These fish are schooling predators that can feed in groups from the bottom right up to the surface. Sometimes we’ll catch the odd one drifting with a live baitfish in open water but most of the time we will catch them on live baitfish, cut bait and especially using vertical jigging schools over specific structure. Only issue is that when you get into a school there are usually sharks and even Goliath Groupers around and many times when you hook a Jack while fighting it a larger fish grabs it and usually breaks the line!
