We love to boast about the fishing off the Sanibel coastline. And last week
our resident fisherman and owner, BG, made us “reel” proud with a catch so
large, it is called the Giant Grouper. Needless to say, it was an
incredible day to fish and then release this protected grouper measuring
about 4 feet long.
The giant grouper has a large mouth and a rounded tail. Juveniles have
irregular black and yellow markings, while adults are green-grey to
grey-brown with faint mottling and numerous small black spots on the fins.
Its size can reach up to 8.9 feet and 880 pounds!
Congratulations, BG, on your catch so HUGE!
