Who’s got grouper????
Seems as if we always get the request for a grouper on our fishing trips. While this species is one of my favorites for table fare and difficulty to catch is one of the more directed charters, means it requires a specific area to target. Our most common types of grouper in Orange Beach would be a Gag, Scamp or Red grouper and they all prefer 200 plus feet of water. While our area it suited to red snapper fishing to target grouper with any success we must travel 35 miles at a minimum requiring a full 12hr fishing trip and a dedicated angler willing to reel them to the surface. While luck never ceases to amaze me occasionally, we do get lucky and find a misplaced gag or scamp grouper on a half day trip. These are what I like to call “Bonus Fish”! So if you’ve wanted to visit Orange Beach and go grouper fishing bring your sunscreen and Wheaties!
