Goliath Grouper are amongst the biggest fish you’ll find anywhere in America. The IGFA all-tackle rod and reel world record for Goliath Grouper (formerly known as Jewfish) was a 680lb0oz fish caught in Fernandina Beach, Florida back in 1961, and that record hasn’t ever been tested in America because these fish are protected. You can’t keep them. This means when you roll up on pretty much any reef in the state of Florida these days you’ll find MASSIVE Goliath Grouper because these fish have been able to grow, unchecked, eating everything in sight. And these fish are everywhere in Florida. From the panhandle to the Florida Keys on up to the Florida-Georgia border.
