African Marbled Grouper

Fishing for African Marble Grouper

Are found in tropical waters around coral bommies, fingers or any coral structures. They are free-taking,  immensely strong and will dive back into the coral to break you off even on 120 lb test. They are stunning camo-green colors with a blue and orange eye, but these colors fade the longer you handle them so photograph them quickly. If you hook a big one, your 12 wt rod will not land it so point the rod at the fish and pull using the line only.
