    What you need to do is stay in contact with the bottom. If you have ever bass fished with a worm you jig for grouper the same. You start out parallel with the water and just lift the rod to about 11:00 oclock and let jig flutter back to the bottom staying in touch with the jig, because most grouper hit on the fall back. Then you jack his jaw and get him off of the bottom pronto.
