SW FL-Bonita Beach: 41 inch king, bonito, shark [Post#: 2246 ] Reply to this post

Fishing in 45 feet out of New Pass Monday with the Patrick Smith party, we used live shrimp and shiners to catch keeper mangrove snapper and Spanish mackerel to 28 inches. We released a small hogfish, triggerfish, and gouper shorts, along with a 24 inch bonito and a four foot nurse shark.

Wednesday, fishing with me in 35 feet out of New Pass, using live shrimp, Don Hudson, daughter Ciarra, and her friend, Ann Cooper caught eight keeper mangrove snapper to 14 inches. The big catch of the day was a 41 inch king mackerel, which was the first I had seen in several weeks.

The Jerry Sterret party dodged most of the morning rains with me on Friday, but we did come back in during a downpour. We fished with live shrimp and a few shiners, in 30 feet out of New Pass. We caught fourteen mangrove snapper to 14 inches, Spanish mackerel to 26 inches, and released a few small kings to 17 inches, two small goliath grouper, triggerfish, and gag and red grouper shorts.
