Grouper, from a kayak
I’m down in the lower Keys for the month of July and have been spending a lot of time fishing. Unfortunately I haven’t been out in my kayak as often as I’d like. Well today was one of the choice days that I was able to get out on the kayak and fish. There has been a grouper hiding out in my canal stealing fish and bait off my line. He was driving me crazy. Well today I put an end to the madness. It was a lovely fight, wrestling him out from under a dock only to have it dart into the mangroves and get pretty heavily wrapped up. I thought I was going to lose him, but finally I got it unwrapped. It wasn’t done yet. With one long head shaking run he tried to run to open water. I cinched down the drag and put the hurt on him. I was rewarded for my efforts with a 25.5″ 8lbs black grouper my first grouper ever and certainly the first from my kayak.
