Team Maine Going "BIG"...

Written by 

Day three with Rich and Matt and for today's trip, they requested trying to tackle a Goliath grouper as well as some tarpon fishing. I said "oh yea, we can do that" and I loaded up the big rod. To be honest, I haven't caught on in a while and I was just as excited as they were. Goliath grouper love live jacks for bait , so we got out the plugs and caught a couple to put in the live well. With a couple frisky jacks ready to go, we ran offshore and dropped on some rock piles and ledges. The first couple of stops didn't produce, but dropping on one of my favorite under cut ledges was the spot. We sent down the jack and "wham"..... The guys were in the battle of their first Goliath grouper and with a hard tug of war, brought it boat side. I took some great pictures and with another jack in the live well, I said "lets do it again". In just a matter of minutes the rod doubled over and the battle was on. This fish was considerably larger and the first fish was well over 200lbs. Into the fight, the rod breaks and I had to hand line in a 300lb Goliath grouper - it was quite a sight. Two really large fish and some great memories of a hard fight. I can't thank you both enough for a fun couple of days and I look forward to seeing you next year to do it again... Capt. Dan
