Grouper Fishing from Pensacola Beach, Florida

Grouper fishing is excellent off of the Pensacola, Gulf Coast. Deep water is fairly close, and grouper inhabit local waters between 30 and 1000ft.

There are several grouper species to fish for including, Gag, Red, Scamp, Warsaw, Snowy, and Yellow Edge. In order to hone in on the hot bite, Capt. Sean prefers longer trips that allow him to work both shallow, and deep water. Deep dropping in 500+ feet of water is becoming a favorite for consistant Grouper bounties.

Is Grouper Good to Eat?

If you have never eaten grouper before, you are in for a treat! All ocean grouper are members of the sea bass family, and are a prized food fish. Characterized by thick fillets of white, flakey meat, grouper is one of the best seafood plates available!

Grouper Are Extremely Powerful Fighters!

Grouper are generally a bottom, or structure dwelling species. They love to hide in crevaces, holes, rocks, and wrecks. Just about any kind of structure provides the cover from which they ambush their prey. Grouper feed primarily on crustaceans, and fish therefore, live bait is always a plus!

We use thick line, large hooks, and big rod and reels when targeting grouper. A hooked grouper turns straight for cover, where it can puff out its gills, and lock itself in bottom structure. Anglers must react strongly, and quickly, to turn there head toward the surface. No matter what species or size, grouper offer excitement, and often the challenge of a lifetime.
