Grouper Season is closed January 1st through April 30th off the east coast of Florida. The best time of year for grouper fishing off the coast of Stuart Florida is May and June when the season opens up and in the fall before it closes back down. Gag Grouper, Red Grouper and Scamp Grouper are the most common groupers with an occasional Black Grouper or Warsaw Grouper. Our most productive Grouper Fishing is on our Bahamas Fishing Adventures. The lack of fishing pressure and an abundance of structure is the perfect combination for excellent grouper fishing.
