The Goliath Grouper
Captain Keith specializes in targeting Goliath grouper in Bradenton Bay using a hand line. Most offshore trips will afford you the opportunity to wrestle one of these beauties (if you’re looking for a workout!).
The Atlantic Goliath Grouper is exactly what it sounds like – a grouper of massive proportion. These fish are known to reach lengths of at least 8 feet (if not more). Weighing in at an average of 700 pounds each, Goliath Groupers are magnificent creatures that have rightfully earned the title of the largest species of grouper in the world.
Catching an Atlantic Goliath Grouper is a huge goal for many anglers, both recreationally and for sport. Not only does catching one warrant bragging rights, but it also provides flesh of excellent quality. Due to its size, this fish can be quite difficult to catch if you don’t have an experienced angler by your side. This species can be caught using a number of different fishing methods including hook and line, trawls, and traps.
