Grouper is a common name for deepwater fish species. Groupers don’t have a lean season. Any time from January to December is an excellent time for grouper fishing. Fort Myers has some of the best spots for red, monster gag, black, and yellowfin groupers. Groupers, such as the black grouper, don’t usually put up a fight against anglers, but its weight is enough to wear them out. These groupers typically hide off the shores of Fort Myers and can weigh up to 100 pounds!
