Fishing Rods & Reel

What Type of Fishing Rods & Reels

Spinning rods and reels work fine.

How Heavy Should They Be

Medium-heavy to heavy action rods and reels are preferred.

Fishing Line

What Type of Fishing Line

Depends on the type of grouper you are after.  Mono is fine, but many anglers use braid or other super lines.

What Pound Test

Smaller grouper, 30 to 40 pound line is fine with a 60 to 100 pound fluorocarbon leader.  For bigger grouper, scale up to 50 to 80 pound line and you might be better off with braided line or some other type of super line with a 100 pound fluorocarbon leader.
