  caught a grouper!
by arasnosliw

The Gulf of Mexico is an excellent place to fish for grouper and marlin. Take a chartered deep sea fishing boat out into the Gulf for a fresh catch. They will even filet the fish you catch if you don't want to clean them yourself.

Excursions vary in time and location. The website provided below lists a variety of charters in the area.

This is not an activity for the weak-stomached. The waves out at sea are very strong, and the boat rocks incessantly. Be prepared to feel sea sick. Also, be able to handle raw squid.

Equipment: sunscreen, hat, towel

if you don't have your own gear, the charters provide fishing rods, tackle, and bait.
