SW FL-Bonita Beach: yellowtail, lanes, Spanish, sh [Post#: 2305 ] Reply to this post

Terry Mooney and friends fished with me Wednesday, in about 40 feet out of New Pass, using live shrimp. We caught five nice yellowtail snapper, four keeper lane snapper, several 25 inch Spanish mackerel, and some whitebone and jolthead porgies. We released everything except the snapper.

Friday, I had a good morning offshore with Brian Wilson, Bob Twiss, Mike Twiss, and Dan True. We headed out of New Pass to about 40 feet, with a bait well full of live shrimp. We caught ten nice yellowtail, all between 14 and 16 inches, and we released two shorts. We also caught two keeper lane snapper, a 12 inch and a 14 inch. We released porgies, Spanish mackerel to 27 inches, and two bull sharks, one 40 inches and one 4 foot. We were broken off a couple times by something big, which might have been another shark—All in all, it was a pretty busy and exciting morning.

Saturday I spent a very windy morning on Estero Bay with father and son anglers Paul & Stephen Eckstrom. We fished with live shrimp, along the channels, sheltered from the wind as much as possible. We caught five keeper sheepshead, all around 14 inches, two sand bream and a keeper mangrove snapper. We released a 17 inch snook and a 17 inch redfish.
