Goliath Grouper Fishing Charters in the Keys – A Bucket List Experience

Our Goliath Grouper fishing charters in Florida present a serious rod-bending and heart-pounding experience. Action-packed from the moment we hit the water, you’ll spend some time fishing for bait such as catfish, stingrays, crevalle jacks and more. Once we’ve loaded up enough bait, we’ll lure in large fish, including the mighty Goliath grouper. These heavyweight beasts are strong enough to pull you to your knees, as they bend your rod in an epic tug-of-war. We’ll be alongside you, assuring you stay safe until you or the Goliath give in.

Once the grouper is hooked, they’ll push your bravery and strength to the edge. The Goliath’s power is unexplainable without actually feeling it yourself. Nothing quite compares to the feeling of connecting with one of nature’s true beasts. You’ll be clinging on for dear life! Once you’ve gained control of the Goliath, you can get a picture to boast about for the rest of your life.

I have now been out with these guys on 4 different trips. That says it all right there! I have done 3 in the keys and 1 out of the Tampa area. They do both inshore/back country and offshore. I have done both and they did not disappoint.Both Captain Chris and Captain Donny are amazing and make for an unforgettable day every time I step on one of their boats. They both feel like your friends by the end of the day and truly want you to fill the cooler. They know their stuff and will put you on fish!No question of who I will use or refer friends and family to when it comes to fishing in Florida.

Nick was a fantastic captain. He had a great sense of humor and has a local flare. He was great at keeping the lines baited and you never had to touch a bait or touch the fish he was really good at his job. Fishing was a little slow today but I'm sure my son says they don't call it catching for a reason.

Captain Chris responded to my my email request almost immediately and I booked an inshore trip for three. Captain Nick was our skipper for the trip and was very patient and pleasant. The fishing wasn’t very good that day but we still had a great experience. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone.

This was probably one of the best days that we have had in awhile. Captian Chris & first mate Nick were exceptional! Prompt in the morning, prepared, and showed us a great time. Chris knew the best spots to put us on the fish, caught our limit, did some catch and release, enjoyed a beautiful boat ride, and were quite entertained. This trip exceeded my expectations. Thank you!!!! Must do again.

Wow!! Booked Captain Chris for a full day deep sea fishing trip when my daughter and adult grandson came to Florida to visit. Was hoping for a great day of fishing. Weather did not cooperate - COLD and windy but Chris did not disappoint! We caught fish one after another even though we cut our time to half day due to weather. Came home with lots of fish and great fish stories of how none of us got sea sick. Great day! Sure we will book again!!

Chris took our family out fishing for sheepshead in Tampa, and that's most of what was reeled in (along with some snapper, grouper, and grunt – no complaints about those yummy fish)! The service and knowledge of Coastal Outfitters Sport Fishing is unparalleled. Visiting Tampa and planning to fish? I wouldn't hesitate to book another charter with these guys!

I am making this review as an avid angler and retired Navy Veteran. Captin Chris has the ultimate local knowledge, seamanship and best equipment( all high end Shimano) on the market. Scheduling was easy and we limited out on grouper early in the day. I travel and fish a lot of charters and his was one of the best I have been on. If you want safe, fun day with great memories and laughs you should choose this charter.

What an amazing captain Chris has become over the years! I have fished with him in many different waters and he always catches fish. His trustworthiness and skillful adaptation to fishing is only exceeded by his knowledge of boating safety. I highly recommend Captain Chris for any boating excursion!

I’ve grown up fishing in Florida but always impressed to learn and catch something new with Captain Chris. He knows the spots, the tackle, and the time to make it worthwhile. Best to go with him if you want to make a day worthwhile. Thanks for the great times!

What can I say about this fantastic organization? I have fished with Captain Chris in the waters of the Tampa Bay Area, the Florida Keys, and the Bahamas. Every trip was unforgettable! What Captain Chris brings to the table in local knowledge is unrivaled. I hate waking up early, but on days I know I’m fishing with the fine people of this organization the morning can’t come fast enough! Will continue to work with this organization for all of my boating related needs! Captain Chris knows it all and does it all! You won’t be disappointed!

Chris took us out and filled all of our requests! We wanted to do some deep dropping and trolling. The conditions were gorgeous and chris quickly got us hooked up on various bottom fish that we wanted to target. Queen snapper and a limit of yellow eye snapper as well as some vermillion. Follow by a short run he then took us trolling and got out limit of black fin tuna. He kept us busy all day hooked up on different fish. Got a great mixed bag! We Will definitely be going back out with Chris on our next trip Islaorada! If you want a fun experience these are your guys!

Goliath Grouper Fishing Charter

The Beast – The Goliath Grouper


The Goliath Grouper is one of the biggest, beefiest fish you’ll find on a fishing charter in Florida. The Goliath is the largest grouper in the western hemisphere and can weigh as much as 1,000lbs and span 8ft, aging as old as 37 years old. In Florida, they usually weigh between 100-600 lbs. They’re a wonder of nature and a favorite for anglers, as they’re truly unique in size and character.

Formerly called ‘Jewfish,’ they have brown or yellow mottling, with black spots on their head and fins. Their largemouth features jawbones that extend past their small eyes. Goliath groupers mostly feed on slow-moving prey, such as crabs and slow-moving fish. They swallow their prey whole and are easily enticed by large bait.

Goliath Grouper Behaviour

These giants are curious and fearless. Rumors and reports over the years have even described Goliaths swimming near diving and spearfishing operations, looking for a meal. Their deep roar (produced by bladder contractions and used as sonar) is enough to make a grown man shiver. The good news for you is, they’re slow and sluggish. That means we can track them easily. However, their incredible strength will make you work hard! You’ve been warned; these guys are no joke, they are monsters.

Where to Catch Goliath Grouper?

These beasts are found all over from Florida to Brazil, making Goliath grouper fishing charters in the Keys a huge success. Smaller Goliaths tend to live in the mangroves, while the bigger ones prefer reefs, bridges, piers and wrecks. They can be caught all year-round.

How to Catch Goliath Grouper?

The Goliath might be a strong creature, but they’re slow, which means you need power more than skill. They’ll go for anything, so dropping live or cut fish down will do the trick. The heavier the tackle, the better. The Goliath has evolved to head to cover as soon as they’re hooked, so be careful!

Goliath Grouper Hand Line Fishing

We’re proud to provide goliath grouper hand line fishing, for that true one-on-one experience without rod and reel. It’s man vs fish, do you have the endurance?

Are Goliath Grouper Good to Eat?

Excellent, but strictly forbidden! Every catch on your Goliath grouper fishing charter in Florida must be released back into the water.

Goliath Grouper Protection

The Goliath grouper is a federally protected species. With harvest rightly forbidden, sports fishing is the only way to see these beautiful creatures up close. On our Goliath grouper fishing charters in Florida, we take all the necessary precautions to ensure their life is preserved while allowing you to experience their power up close. Armed with state-of-the-art rods, we use large fish as bait to entice the goliaths off the wreck or reef – giving you a head start in the fight. Over the past ten years, the Keys has seen the Goliath grouper population explode, thanks to the regulations put in place by the FWC.

What You Can Expect During Our Goliath Grouper Fishing Charters in the Keys

Your safety is our priority. Our captains have spent over 30 years out on the waters, helping people of all skill levels to stay safe while experiencing the thrills of fishing. From handling your rod to staying on the boat, we’ll keep you safe during the battle of a lifetime.
