Rarely Recorded Grouper Caught off North Carolina Is a State Record

North Carolina’s Division of Marine Fisheries certified a catch made June 30 off Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina, as a new state record for graysby, a small and relatively unknown grouper found throughout much of the Southeast U.S., Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean region.

Edward J. Tait of Little River, South Carolina, was fishing offshore out of Ocean Isle Beach — near the North and South Carolina state line — when he caught the 3-pound, 0.8-ounce graysby near an offshore reef.
