You and your party will have a wonderful time with Captain Pepe’s Rawest Charter Fishing. RememberS hallow water grouper are closed for harvest January 1st to May 1st in the Atlantic.

First, its mild, delectable flavor makes the black grouper an excellent table fish. You can find the occasional black grouper further north along the Atlantic Coast, but they’re much more abundant in the Bahamas, here in the Florida Keys, and in the Caribbean.

Their coloring is quite variable, ranging from an olive green to a splotchy gray with dazzling patterns that emanate from the eyeball and radiate toward the tail in very complex lines. Unfortunately, because they’re considered an endangered species, the Jewish is catch and release only at the current time.

Size and Appearance Needless to say, the Goliath grouper is absolutely huge. They tend to stay at depths of less than 200 feet and like to swim near rocky formations and shipwrecks.

But if you want to give the Jewish a shot, bring along your heaviest tackle and some 100-pound test line just to be sure. For bait, you should only use live fish under 15 pounds, as artificial lures and jigs pretty much never work.

Important for both commercial and leisure fishing, the red grouper is as tasty as its black counterpart and is the centerpiece for a practically endless list of delicious recipes. Just like its name says, the red grouper has a brown to reddish tint and is frequently marked by occasional white spots.

A good way to distinguish a red grouper is by the large size of its eyes. Typically, the red grouper is a bottom-dweller, with adults usually preferring rocky structures or reef waters.

Despite its relatively small size, the red grouper can be a fairly aggressive fish. This popularity is mostly due to the fact that the gag is considered to have the best flavor in the grouper family, but the strict regulations on catching them contribute to it as well.

It usually presents a mottled, gray color, but you’ll sometimes find a gag with markings that look like a black grouper ’s radiating patterns. Like other grouper, the gag can often be found near rocks, ledges, coral reefs, and shipwrecks.

They’re not the easiest grouper to catch, but with heavy tackle and a good guide, it shouldn’t be too much of a problem. We had a tremendous time with Capt Pepe and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to fish while in Rawest.

He is extremely personable, his boat and equipment are top-notch, and he kept the fishing action hot all day. My girlfriend and I fished a 1/2 day and it was the BEST part of our recent trip to KW.

She hooked into a nice sized bar jack and had a blast fighting it to the boat. The action was non-stop, and we quickly filled the cooler and had tons of fun doing so.

During any break in the action, we had a great time talking with Pepe about his various experiences being a capt in KW. The boat was in immaculate condition and Captain Pepe kept us entertained with fishing stories all afternoon.
