General Information

Red Grouper are bottom dwelling bruisers that prefer to inhabit limestone outcrops and ledges. When targeting Red Grouper medium to heavy tackle should be employed to stop them from reaching their rocky homes thus ending the battle. Red Grouper will readily pounce on many bait types including dead, live and artificial. Vertical jigging metal and bucktail lures is fun and very effctive but make sure it contacts the bottom at the end of the fall !
