A boat captain in Louisiana stumbled across the elusive square grouper on the beach and what it really is will make you laugh.
Captain Theophile Bourgeois was out with clients on a Louisiana barrier island when they came across the elusive square grouper on the beach. So what is square grouper, you may ask?
Well, it’s a brick of marijuana. Florida anglers have been known to find a brick or two of drugs washed ashore and began calling the finds square groupers. Bourgeois and his clients were walking alone the shore when they noticed something rectangular and plastic-wrapped.
Capt. Bourgeois had an idea of what the package was and when it was cut open, it was confirmed to be a big ol’ 15 to 20 pound block of weed. As he told NOLA, “It was old and waterlogged…It stunk. It was skunk weed.”
He alerted the authorities with the exact coordinates of the package and left the weed to the professionals. At least he can say he caught a rare, square grouper!
