Sort of a rare catch, this grouper is said to live up to 24 years & can weigh 25 pounds and be 3 feet long. They are said to be social and live in large groups but, all the ones we catch or we’ve seen are about the size of the one in this photo. Never have caught two in a row.

Beautiful fish, obviously excellent eating.
