Hand to Fin Combat

When your bait is a six-pound fish, you better hold on tight.

These guys are going hand lining for one of Florida’s giants, the goliath grouper.They battle this beast on from the seawall and land it on the boat ramp for a quick, clean release. Goliath grouper have been totally protected now for many years and there is brewing discussion of anglers wanting to open them back up to some type of management strategy as they have fully recovered and are overrunning many shallow structures, making it darn near impossible to fish for other fish. The goliath comes up and eats your struggling fish, and once they do there is no stopping them.
