Yellowtail, mangs, mackerel, redfish & snook: SWFL [Post#: 1987 ] Reply to this post

I returned from some time off to fish Wednesday about 17 miles west of New Pass, with live shrimp. The tide was slow, and we were dodging the hungry porpoise and a couple swarms of honeybees out there, but did pretty well with keeper Spanish mackerel, yellowtail snapper and mangrove snapper.

Thursday, I fished Estero Bay, which had lots of fresh water, due to the recent rains. We were able to catch and release two snook, a 17½ inch redfish, and mangrove snapper, fishing around the islands and oyster bars with live shrimp.

I fished Saturday in 35 feet, west of New Pass. We caught a mess of Spanish mackerel to 26 inches, and keeper mangrove snapper. We released other bottom fish, along with a 3½ foot lemon shark.
