SW FL-Bonita Beach: more hogs & sheep, snapper [Post#: 2340 ] Reply to this post

Monday, I fished a catch and release trip with the Snyder family—Dave and Rhonda, son Ryan, and daughter Lenay. We headed out with live shrimp to about 19 miles out of New Pass, where we fished in 35 feet. We caught a nice hogfish, keeper mangrove snapper all around 14 inches, keeper-sized sheepshead and triggerfish. We also released about thirty good sized whitebone porgies, along with lots of gag and red grouper shorts.

Mid week brought some windy, rough conditions to the area, and I headed back offshore for a few hours on Saturday with John, Greg, Andrew and Ethan Monk. We fished at the reefs and in 30 feet over structure, mostly for sheepshead, and we caught some nice ones to 17 inches, along with porgies and triggerfish.

Sunday and Monday, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, are reserved for family time, so that’s it for this week—Happy holidays to all!
