Default GoPro Video of Goliath Grouper Caught SW FL

Check out this footage i got of my brother catching a goliath grouper! I also want to know if any one knows of a good way to get them out from under the bridge without harming the fish?

Good video. Nice fish.
Angler needs a fighting belt though.

We haven't used a belt yet we don't want anyone going over! We would rather loose a rod.

Who cares about harming the fish. Jewfish are overpopulated and are hurting our reefs and fisheries. They need to reopen the Jewfish fishery.

Even something like this, or one of those big game cush-its...saves on the bruises.

Nothing about TARGET grouper fishing...just don't pull the big ones out of the water...and don't pose for pics with the small ones out of the water either.

That is a baby one. Wait until you latch on a 400 to 600# one.

Nice fish. Grouper that size will go where they may. Tough to keep them away from structure if it's close by. You can sometimes move the boat to keep them away but there's too many variables per fish to provide any recommendations.

Or one latches onto your stringer and drags you down into a wreck when you only have 500lbs of air at 110 fsw - True Story!

I've shot a few back in the 70's. We mostly used powerheads at the time. I just like looking at them now. I'm no longer angry at them. I'm still angry at the wahoo and swordfish though.

x2 have power headed a bunch of them out of Ft. Myers years ago. Also had them grab my stringer as well. They are not shy to divers. On one occasions was sending a large one (assumed dead) up to the surface by inflating him from regulator and he bit down on regulator. Quite a struggle for a few seconds until I got it back out of his mouth. Those days are over but exciting they were.

That one definitely looks small. I never understood this and shark fishing. So easy to lure to bite that at least to me is not that much fun. Kind of fishing for pinfish on steroids.

Yeah man, bottom fishing is no fun either. send the bait to the bottom at a good spot, and it's swallowed hardly before you set the drag If you can't see the fun in throwing a bait in the water and have something big and strong grab it, then maybe fishing ain't for you
