The Catch
Grouper (Goliath)

Brittany and Adam love being out on the water.  They wanted to experience these HUGE fish for themselves.  We set out on a windy morning.  Wavy conditions, they were going to earn their sea legs today.  Adam was up first.  Barry is Brittany’s brother and he also joined us on this adventure.  He was on deck helping him get the line in the right position.  He yelled up to me that it was snagged.  Knowing this area well, there aren’t any snags.  I pull on the line a few times until i realize this is no snag but a HUGE goliath grouper.  Hold on Adam!  After an intense battle he pulled up a 300lb+ Goliath Grouper.

The sun finally came out and it was Brittany’s turn.  She was nervous, this was a BIG fish.  As we threw the bait in, not much time to worry because she was hooked up.  Her brother Barry spotted her giving her a hand when needed.  She reeled in a huge grouper as well!  These fish were on fire today!
