Fishing in Key West, Florida is always an adventure. You never know what you are going to pull up out of the deep blue sea. Take for example the Black Grouper that Captain Cory and his client from Virginia pulled up. Just look at the coloration on that monster. The pattern of this Black Grouper helps it to blend into its environment better.
Most adult Black Groupers are found lurking around rocky bottoms, drop offs, and reef areas that are at least 60 feet deep. Usually, though, the larger Groupers want and need the space and can be found in deeper waters offshore. While this Black Grouper wasn’t anywhere near the State record of 113 pounds 6 ounces, it certainly was one great catch. The client was thrilled to reel in such a monster and made his day. You can bet that this fish put up a great fight as it was reeled up from the depths below.
