The goliath grouper is a saltwater fish typically found in shallow tropical waters. It lives up to its goliath name by growing as long as eight feet and weighing as much as 800 pounds!

Sanibel Island, Florida
Sanibel Island is excellent for grouper fishing because it is open year-round. Anglers are invited to take on the challenge of reeling in a goliath grouper any day of the year. If you did want to plan a trip to Sanibel Island, consider going during the high season from May to October. There is an increased number of fish during these months, including grouper, making fishing just a little bit easier.
