This was a report from Capt Chick and should give you an idea of how many of these Golaiths we have down here.


There are herds of Goliath Grouper all over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico in 20' to 100' of water. Caught one in 30' this morning & could of caught as many as we wanted, but the one wore out my angler, who was pleased to be able to land the big boy, who was about 100lbs and a load, "just a baby", who swam away after the photo in the water & release. He was using my weapon of mass destruction, which is a 12/0 Penn senator with 200lb braid line, 150lb leader & 12/0 circle hook, mounted on a 150lb rated Ugly stick rod.
