Tuesday, I fished in Estero Bay with Pat Cahil, girlfriend Debbie Szymski, and Debbieâ€™s uncle, Reno Bracci. We used live shrimp, fishing down toward Wiggins Pass, and caught three pompano and keeper sheepshead. We released smaller sheepshead.
Saturday, I finally got a little way offshore for the first time since the winds started blowing a week ago. I fished in 35 feet out of New Pass with Scott and Tina Fandrich and Dr. Omar Benitez. We caught keeper mangrove and lane snapper, triggerfish and grunts, and released a small goliath grouper and fifteen bluefish.
