SW FL-Bonita Beach: flounder, reds, sheepies, trig [Post#: 2332 ] Reply to this post

I fished on a very windy Monday, 12/4, in Estero Bay with John Hull and his dad, Bob. We fished several holes with live shrimp, and did pretty well with hook-ups and variety. We caught a keeper flounder, keeper pompano, three sand bream, two keeper redfish to 20 inches, and keeper sheepshead. We released short reds and ladyfish.

Art and Donna Johnson, Tom Satchall, and Tom’s mother, Mary Satchall fished in potholes and around the mangroves in lower Estero Bay with me on Tuesday. We caught six keeper sheepshead to 15 inches, along with some sand bream, and we released lots of smaller sheepshead.

Wednesday, I fished the artificial reefs off Bonita Beach with Jim Killips and Joel Gunther. We caught keeper sheepshead, mangrove snapper, triggerfish, and a 17 inch flounder, all on live shrimp.

Fishing in 40 feet out of New Pass Thursday with Carl Foust and friends Todd and Brenda, we caught keeper mangrove snapper, grunts and porgies. We released a twenty pound goliath grouper, along with lots of short gag and red grouper.

Friday, a cold front moved through in the early morning hours, with winds of 25 knots or more and seas of 5-7 feet. Needless to say, I cancelled my offshore trip.
