The gulf coast of Florida offers some of the best grouper fishing around. The Gulf has fairly calm water most of the year (except for our new 11 month recent hurricane season). The gear is pretty simple: a fairly stout rod, I say fairly stout because you don't want your rod too stiff. This will effect the action it has on the bait ; more on this later. I use 40lb line on the reel with a 100lb shock leader, and about an 8/0 hook. I like to use live bait for grouper fishing but some prefer jigs, spoons, and even heavy grade trolling lures.
  After gear, guests, and boat are ready we need to catch some bait. I like to use the fish that you catch when bottom fishing with smaller rigs. Blue runners, sand perch, lizard fish, etc.  Grouper are not real picky eaters when it comes to live bait. Yes, they do have favorites like anything else that eats, but the fish mentioned above will work great.Read more ! At www.fishinginsiders.com
