SW FL-Bonita beach: Spanish, snapper, shark [Post#: 2254 ] Reply to this post

I fished Monday with John Maliszewski and friend, Joe, in 30 feet out of New Pass. We used live shrimp and dead shiners, free-lining for Spanish mackerel, and we caught thirty keeper sized, but released all but six. We also released small mangrove snapper, small kingfish, and a 3 ½ foot lemon shark.

Fishing with Wayne Mares and friends Tuesday, in 35 feet out of New Pass, we caught ten keeper mangrove snapper, and kept 11 of 25 keeper sized Spanish mackerel we caught on live shrimp. We released triggerfish, and had our lines broken twice by a couple of big fish.

Wednesday, I again fished in 35 feet out of New Pass, this time with Debra Johnson, her brother Mike Griffith, and his son, Michael. We used live shrimp to catch keeper mangrove snapper and Spanish mackerel. We kept ten mackerel for the family, and released a bunch more, along with triggerfish and short kingfish. The kings lately, close in, have only been running about 20 inches.

Robert and Noel Jacobusse didn’t mind fishing Estero Bay in a light rain Saturday morning, but once the thunder and lightening started threatening us, it was no longer safe to be on the water. We cut the trip short, after releasing sheepshead, and the two will hope for better conditions next time they visit.
