Grouper fishing on charter boats out of Naples, Florida offers some of the best offshore angling in the Gulf of Mexico. While possession of grouper is prohibited in February that does not prevent us from catching them. We are targeting mangrove snapper this month, as we always do so the grouper closure is not affecting the quantity of our catches. Grouper and mangrove snapper often frequent the same habitat so while fishing for mangroves grouper are often a pleasant by catch. This past Saturday our sportfishing party caught a limit of mangroves and also caught and released nine gag grouper up to 18 pounds. Spring fishing will also bring opportunities to catch cobia, king mackerel and permit. Fishing opportunities abound in Naples and anglers going on our sportfishing charters are seldom not rewarded with outstanding catches.
