  • Bottom Fishing for Grouper

    Bottom Fishing for Grouper

    Bottom fishing for grouper is all about being over the right type of sea floor structure. Off the west coast of Florida lie some of the most productive bottom fishing grounds in the Gulf of Mexico. For the fishing we cover in this In The Spread fishing video, we will be in 150-200 feet of water. We will be dropping from our boat as we use the current to drift across targeted structure. This structure is made up of a combination of natural reefs and wrecks. The reef consist of a series of both high and low relief limestone ledges and pinnacles. Kevin Adney, our featured instructor for this video, has fine tuned his bottom fishing program over many years. He has a very simple approach to bottom fishing for grouper and snapper. The most technical part of this type of fishing is drift management. Kevin will share his knowledge and experience on all aspects of his style of fishing, so you can go out and have the same level of success as he enjoys. The beauty of bottom fishing is that you never know for sure what may take your bait. You could very well hook Vermillion Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Lane Snapper, Red Snapper, Gag Grouper, Scamp Grouper, Red Grouper, Amberjack, Kingfish, Cobia or sharks. While we set out to target red snapper, we quickly found ourselves on a really good grouper bite. Once you have a clear understanding of what\'s biting, you can then dial in your offerings. So, this video primarily covers bottom fishing for grouper.
