This year, I brought my boat down to our place in Punta Gorda on Florida’s West coast to do some gulf fishing. Unfortunately, keeper grouper require traveling out into the gulf to get legal sized fish and we went 40 miles outside of Charlotte Harbor last week. I caught the twin 29 inch Red Grouper shown in the photos last. I didn’t weigh them as we only measure length for the Punta Gorda fishing club down here like we do at VHFC.
Red Grouper are excellent eating. My favorite is a grouper Reuben sandwich or blackened.
