The Jewfish, the giant of the groupers, averages 20 lbs., often 100
lbs., and records of 800 lbs! The muscle required to get one off the
sea bottom is what puts the Jewfish in the game fish class, although
they can move fast for a short distance. They prefer deep holes where
they seem to sulk and pull straight down when hooked. Now commonly
called Goliath Grouper.
