A big Jewfish has a big mouth, and an even bigger appetite.

I believe the correct name is Goliath Grouper. They've been on the no kill list for years and have made a decent comeback. They hang out in surprisingly shallow water and sometimes are a nuisance to anglers.

Anyone else see some video editing going on in that clip? The key frames just seem to be obstructed by a big splash.

The name changed in 2001. I don't know a single Florida cracker that calls them Goliaths, but I do. I even heard a guide and the head of the FWC on a fishing show from the keys and the awkwardness in the back and forth terms was amusing. The guide was right though, a sensible rod and reel slot/bag is in order again. It's probably easier to catch a Goliath that falls into a 4" slot than a snook.

In the Atlantic in Florida the size for keeper Snook is 28-32 inches. However, you cannot keep Goliath Grouper at all. Probably worse than bricking a cop or killing an urban youth, and as noted, they've come back well.

ginormous groupers were called
that non-PC name back in the 70s/80s/90s,
did not know that the name was 'officially' changed.
even my tribe friends called them that... shrug

no one wanted to eat them,
even if you could take them,
too many worms,
not the sweet meat
that a <20lb grouper had,
loved 'em in beer-batter.

That's when your bait costs get pretty damn expensive.

Still doesn't answer the question. WTH do you mean by a "4" Slot"?
