Gearing Up for Goliath Grouper

Henry heads just a few miles south for this episode to fish out of Boca Grande on Florida's Gulf coast, he's out in open water with buddy Mark Brooks and they are fishing over reefs and heavy structure for Goliath Grouper. These are the largest fish found off south west Florida and can grow to over 500lbs. Because they are delicious to eat, they were heavily over fished commercially, during most of the 20th century, seriously endangering their survival. But a moratorium, in place for over twenty years now has seen their numbers rebound dramatically. They hold up in holes and crevices amid the structure on the bottom and can be tempted out by sizeable live baits. They put up one hell of a battle, Henry certainly knows he has been in a fight after boating his first. For his tip of the week he shows how to crimp a 400lb monofilament leader to a size no. 14 hook. Big gear for big fish. On his lighter tackle he also catches some great looking Amberjacks. Dr BBQ Ray Lampe cooks up another fantastic recipe, this time its Redfish Pot Pie.
