I’ve done my share of catch and release fishing. But catch and release with groupers is a little different.
When I fish, it is usually a relaxing time, standing in the stream, casting flies, and pulling in a few hand-sized trout.
When I go to catch and release, I get my hand wet, unhook the fish, and hold it in the water until it refreshes and swims away.
It’s not quite the same thing when it comes to catch and release with groupers.
More from Wide Open Spaces:
I prefer to catch and release by hand, not by body.
Have you the video of the grouper and the shark? Yeah, I’d figure out another way to catch and release with groupers.
