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.
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.
