If you want to catch a Goliath, just hook a nice snook in a deep creek mouth, and leave it in the water next to your boat for a few seconds.. 

Some early discussions about a quota season on them.  Cross your fingers.. 


I heard you had to pay 500.00 for the tag if your picked on the lottery.  That's a expensive grouper. lol

Here's what was proposed and tentatively approved, with final approval and suggested changes to be voted on at the March 2022 meeting:

The FWC staff recommended these proposed new rules:

  • The harvest of up to 200 goliath grouper per year, with harvest opportunities awarded via random-draw lottery with a maximum of one permit and tag per person per year
  • A lottery application fee of $10 and, if awarded, a permit fee of $500
  • A slot limit of 20-36 inches total length
  • Hook-and-line as the only allowable gear
  • An annual open harvest season of March 1 through May 31
  • Harvest allowed in all state waters except those of Palm Beach County south through the Atlantic coast of Monroe County
  • A requirement for participants to submit harvest and biological information.

Some of the seven-member governor-appointed commissioners expressed concerns Wednesday about issues that 20 stakeholders raised in public comments, so they will consider these changes to the proposed regulations at their March meeting:

  • Adding Martin County waters to the no-harvest zone
  • Reducing the license fee
  • Increasing the minimum harvest size.
