In this episode, Henry is fishing in the waters off Destin, Florida with Captain William Pugh and they're targtetting the hard fighting Scamp Grouper. Also known as Brown Grouper or Broomtail Grouper, these fish are frequently found around wrecks and structure in deep water and average under 10lb but can sometimes go above 20lb. They're 40 miles offshore and fishing in around 300ft of water and Henry strikes first but as he starts pulling his fish up, Capt William also hooks up to one. These are one of the finest eating fish you can catch in the Florida Panhandle so they're certainly pleased to put a few in the boat. Capt William shows us a great bait tip with squid that can prove deadly year round. As Henry gets another hook up, he suddenly has a much bigger fish eating his fish and is gets into a backbreaking fight. 20 mins in and the fish is still deep and draining Henry but in the meantime, William has landed the biggest Scamp Grouper of the day, a fine fish in the 20lb bracket.
