Grouper is one of the most popular species of fish and the anglers have always been hunted. It is regarded as a symbol of success not because of its action, but also because the content is good, very scarce and very high value on the market.
Habitat and nutritional properties:
Fish are often found in the sea of structured scarce except in some very depths rarely visited by fishermen and anglers. If we managed to ensnare a group of groupers, this means that the bottom was still virgin or had been left untouched by fishermen or anglers. Predators are seen are lazy, "heavy stomach" and moving the weaker longlai spend much time hiding in the structure such as wrecks or reefs.
It feeds on prey to the voracious and then bring it quickly into the hole that the structure or residence. Therefore, the successful angler defeat in size have been considered successful in securing a fishing license which is very commendable. In terms of nutritional properties, grouper fish species may be said that most are not picky. All types of bait in accordance with his taste is in the eating without much choice. Groupers are usually actively hunt prey at night. But sometimes during the day, especially early morning and late evening, also to be the most appropriate time to snare him.
In terms of body shape and nutritional properties, grouper has been created as a species of prey that like to attack the greedy, rude and abrupt. It has the unusual power to attack and kill so fast and short, but resistance against the rod when it is not long before he hung and died poor.
basics to learn when Grouper fishing.
- Fish your baits right on the bottom. Keep your line tight, but leave the weight on your line on the bottom — regardless of whether you’re fishing live or dead bait like a bonita strip. Grouper live on the bottom and are holding up in either rocks or wrecks. By keeping your bait on the bottom, you’ll have it right in front of the grouper’s face where the fish can eat it.
- Don’t jerk or lift the rod when the grouper takes the bait. Reel as fast as you can to set the hook, and take up the slack. As soon as the grouper is hooked-up and the rod is bowed, then use the rod to lift the fish out of the hole or up off the bottom. Next reel down really fast, and lift the grouper up again with the rod.
- Be sure not to lift the grouper with the rod once you get the fish 20 feet or so up off the bottom. Switch from lifting and winding to steadily reeling. Since a big grouper will make several more runs to try and get back into the bottom, you may tear the fish free from the hook if you try and lift the rod tip. Don’t reel when the grouper is pulling off drag. Let the reel and the bowed rod fight the grouper.
- Gaff a grouper in the mouth. Not only is this the safest place to gaff the grouper so you don’t lose the fish, but you also won’t damage nearly as much meat. Make sure you leave the fish laying in the water. Don’t attempt to pick the grouper’s head up with the rod. Let the mate gaff the fish and bring it onboard.
