Super fish mate. Jewies first run are awesome. They are great tasting fish, one of the best I've tasted. Although I applaud you for releasing it, there is no way that I would have. :smile:

hey nice fish we have jew fish, well they used to be called jew fish now to be politically correct they have been renamed by the state to a goliath grouper here is a picture of a small one at 10 lbs that I caught in the florida keys. They get up over 300 lbs and you can not keep them :sad:

Gday RiverGod

Mate that is one amazing looking fish.
Are they mainly caught amongst the Mangroves. How long have they been a protected species ? Nice setup by the way. What sort of Kayak is the one in the photo

They are usually caught in the deep structure as they get bigger. this spot was loaded with mangrove snapper but was lucky enough to catch this guy. As far as the boat, it is a Captiva made by perception as you can see it is a big guy boat and is pretty comfortable. But now with the Tarpon 160i don't use it much but have it as a spare or for the winter time or in really rough weather

Hi Rivergod, thats a nice looking fish. Do they fight hard? You don't happen to have a photo of the mangrove snapper that you mentioned do you? I would be interested to see if they look anything like the snapper we catch down here.
Regards,

Well i wouldn't say they fight hard with a long run but i was using ultra light spinning rod and it was like trying to reel in a block of concrete. at times i thought that it had got me hung up in the mangrove then could feel it move and kept the presure on after about 20 min. finally got him up.
Here is a small mangrove snapper that my buddy caught
well can't seem to get the picture to work but will try again later
