Bottom fishing for giant Goliath Groupers in Florida.
The groupers were sitting on the bottom of a wreck in 40ft of water. The bite was slow, but as we were preparing to leave my Duel 12/0w starts screaming. After a short fight, we landed a 200-250lb Goliath Grouper. Jewfish are one of the strongest fish in the Ocean.
