10 lb. gag, Spanish, lanes& a hog:Bonita Beach, FL [Post#: 1957 ] Reply to this post

I fished Monday about 17 miles west of New Pass, with live shrimp. We caught twenty nice lane snapper, some Spanish mackerel 22 to 24 inches, triggerfish, jolthead porgies, and released lots of grouper in the 19-20 inch range.

Fishing the Edison Reef and a small ledge in about 40 feet Tuesday, we caught keeper mangrove snapper, triggerfish and porkfish, and released numerous grouper 19 to 21 inches.

I fished Thursday at the reefs. We had hoped to go after tarpon, but the winds were up, and there were too many white caps on the water. We caught Spanish mackerel and mangrove snapper, and released gag shorts, along with a 3 foot sharp nose shark.

Friday, I fished the reefs, using live shrimp. We caught keeper mangrove snapper, triggerfish, and a hogfish. We also released about fifty keeper-sized Spanish mackerel, short grouper, and an 8½ foot nurse shark.

Fishing in 38 feet off New Pass Saturday, we caught a ten pound gag grouper on a blue runner, keeper lane snapper and triggerfish, and released short gag and red grouper, caught on live shrimp and pinfish. We were broken off a couple of times by kings.
