Grouper Fishing Charters
Grouper fishing year round in the Gulf of Mexico, the world's largest Grouper fishery!
Jawbreaker Charters can offer Grouper fishing charters year round, one of the best parts of fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. Although Grouper is seasonal, they migrate to specific depths of water as the temperature changes. Captain Dan Barry’s rule of thumb - when fishing for Grouper in cool winter water, fish shallow; when fishing for Grouper in warm summer water, fish deeper.
Grouper is a very popular and tasteful eating fish here in Florida. Many of our guests like our Grouper fishing charter because they enjoy taking home and grilling up the fish they caught earlier in the day. When fishing for Grouper, the most common method is “digging”, or bottom fishing, offshore in the Gulf of Mexico.
At Jawbreaker Charters, we use a combination of live bait and cut bait (this is the stinky stuff). Grouper has a hard time resisting our bait because of their natural instinct to eat. During the winter months, trolling for Grouper tends to yield larger fish, but has its limitations. Typically, our Grouper fishing charters focus on the bottom fishing techniques.
Grouper usually put up quite the fight once hooked, so we use high quality, medium to heavy action fishing rods, with an open-style conventional reel and 50# line or heavier. On The Jawbreaker, every angler(that’s you) will be provided with the proper fishing gear, and if you are new to fishing, we will teach you all about it.
We'll concentrate on Grouper, but when you are deep sea fishing miles offshore, you'll also catch some other types of fish. There are several other reef fish that can put up a fight, and are just as delicious on the table.
The list of other species of fish we can catch on a Grouper charter can go on and on. Sometimes, these other species may only be seasonal and must be released. Jawbreaker Charters follows all state and local laws regarding size and bag limitations, but very rarely will our Grouper fishing charter only come back with Grouper in the box.
