In this episode of BlacktipH, Josh is joined once again by NFL star linebacker Sam Barrington from the Green Bay Packers to go fishing for monster goliath groupers off the coast of Florida. We started off the day catching bonito (false albacore) for bait. After catching half a dozen albies for bait, Sam was ready to start goliath grouper fishing. Sam hooked up to his first goliath grouper and immediately got yanked forward. After an intense short fight, Sam Barrington landed his first goliath grouper. The day ended with Sam catching four goliath groupers. Sam's friends Johan and Richard both caught a goliath grouper, adding up a total of six goliath groupers for the day.

The bite was slow, but as we were preparing to leave my Duel 12/0w starts screaming. After a short fight, we landed a 200-250lb Goliath Grouper. Jewfish are one of the strongest fish in the Ocean.

This wreck is known for giant groupers. Ben Chancey from "Chew on This" brought me here in 2011 and I caught my very first goliath grouper estimated at over 500lbs! SPONSORS: http://barrettrods.com/
