Grouper Game in Greece

Grouper in Greece
Goldblotch Grouper
I was lucky enough to find a couple of these juvenile grouper lurking at the bottom of a quay in Skopelos, Greece. I believe them to be Goldblotch Grouper (Epinephelus costae), which I think is a first for me. You can’t help but love grouper. A proper rockfish! They both aggressively took small paddletails fished on 1g jigheads.

Spanish LRF

LRF Mum

Back from a top week in Spain visiting my mum. It was minging hot, so snorkelling was mostly the preferred pastime but I did get to flex the travel rod here and there, trying to notch up the species count. Read more
