Reading Time: 7minutesGroupers are some of Florida’s most iconic fish species. From monster Goliath's to delicious Scamps, these big bottom-dwellers are a favorite on most Floridian fishing trips.
In this article, you can learn all about the different types of Grouper in Florida. The average catch in Florida is around half that length, weighing between 5 and 20 pounds.
Black Grouper live around rocky bottoms and reefs on both sides of the Sunshine State. They spend their summers spawning in much shallower seas, though, as little as 30 feet deep.
Commonly known as “Grey Grouper,” these guys are a staple of reef fishing trips around the Gulf and up the Atlantic. They don’t grow as big as Black Grouper, usually maxing out somewhere around 50 pounds.
However, younger Gags can be found in estuaries and even seagrass beds, so don’t be surprised if you hook one while you’re on the hunt for Redfish and other inshore species. Bigger fish hunt around muddy and rocky coastal waters.
Young Goliath's will head right into estuaries and look for food around oyster bars. Their huge size and fearless curiosity made them an easy target, and they were overfished almost to extinction in the late 20th century.
Luckily, Goliath Grouper are strictly protected these days, and you can only fish for them on a catch-and-release basis. From teaming up with other predators to catch their dinner to reportedly fanning bait out of traps for an easy snack, they’re far brighter than most people give them credit for.
Sadly, this intelligence comes with the same natural curiosity that put Goliath Grouper in hot water. If you come across one, count yourself lucky for the chance to meet it and make sure it swims off unharmed.
Nothing says “reef fishing in Florida” like a boastful of big, tasty Red Grouper. These deep-water hunters are the reason people bother to go offshore when there are so many fish in the shallows.
The average Red Grouper weighs somewhere in the 5–10 lb range, and anything over 2 feet long is a rare catch. They live around rocky bottom up to 1,000 feet down, so you may have to travel 20 miles or more to get to them.
According to most people who have caught them, Scamp are the tastiest fish in the family. You won’t come across them in much less than 100 feet of water, and you can easily find them in three or four times that depth.
They also grow much bigger than Scamp, meaning you’re in for a real feast if you catch one. If you’re set on landing a “Snowier,” get ready for a long ride.
NOAA has declared Speckled Hind a Species of Concern, mainly because they have so little data on them. If Goliath Grouper are the kings of the shallows, these guys dominate the deep.
Add in the fact that they live several hundred feet down, where all fish taste great, and they become the dream catch of many deep dropping enthusiasts. Their dappled, red body and bright yellow fins provide camouflage around the deep, rocky structure that they hunt around.
Yellow fin’s scientific name, Mycteroperca Vanessa, roughly translates to “Poisonous Grouper.” This is because they tend to have very high levels of ciguatoxin. They’re slightly smaller than Scamp on average, but many anglers say that they taste just as good.
Scammers are taking advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic and increasing their activities in Florida. Be aware, stay alert, and never send money to receive a lottery prize.
Lottery office hours may vary in observance of the holidays. Prizes of $599 and less can be claimed at any Florida Lottery retailer.

Florida Lottery tax withholding son winnings for non-U.S. citizens or non-residentsWinningsTaxPercentageAll WinningsState Tax0%Federal Tax30%Total: 30% The Florida Lottery launched in 1986 when a constitutional amendment was approved by voters to establish the state lottery as a way of raising funds for educational initiatives.
The lottery did so well in its first three weeks of operation that it repaid $15.5 million owed to the state's general fund. The Florida Lotto made headlines in August 2017 when a Panamanian woman won $30 million after playing via a concierge service.
The winner signed up from home to play every draw of the next month, and online staff bought tickets in Florida for her. They contacted her to let her know she'd won, and she flew out to Tallahassee to claim her jackpot.
To date, over $37 billion has been donated to education since the lottery's inception. The Florida Lottery does not offer tickets by mail or online.
Tickets must be purchased from an authorized lottery retailer in Florida. Check our Advanced Draws section to find out how many games you can play at a time.
No, all lottery winners in the state of Florida's names, the game won, city of residence, and the date of the win are released. Your telephone number and home address will remain confidential.
We suggest that you consult with a lawyer before claiming any big prizes, however, as it may be possible to claim your prize through a trust in order to retain your anonymity. Prizes of $599 or less can be claimed at any authorized lottery retailer in the state.
You must be 18 years or older to buy tickets and redeem winnings. If you wish to elect the cash option, you must claim your prize within 60 days of the draw.
Proceeds from Florida Lottery tickets go to educational funding for the state's schoolchildren, including school technology, scholarships, and books. The Florida Lottery is required by law to report all winnings for $600 or more claimed by U.S. citizens or residents to the IRS.
The state lottery is also required to withhold federal taxes on certain winnings. The lottery can't be held responsible for lost or damaged tickets.
