SW FL Gulf & Bay: Capt. Dave Hanson's Fishbuster [Post#: 256 ] Reply to this post

Captain Dave Hanson of Fishbuster Charters fished 11 miles off Bonita Beach, at the Bonita artificial reefs, and in Estero Bay this week, using live shrimp, crabs, and tomats. Our clients caught-and-released gag grouper to 21 3/4 inches, just short of legal size 22 ", red grouper to 19 inches, sheepshead, and snook. Catches also included keeper-sized Spanish mackerel, king mackerel, triggerfish, mangrove snapper, yellow-tail snapper, grunts, ladyfish, and assorted bottom-fish. There were a couple of exciting fights with jewfish (recently re-named "goliath grouper"): These huge fish bit a 25 inch permit and also a large snapper being reeled to the boat. We also hooked a 125 lb. tarpon on a crab: He jumped twice, then took off! Find complete info. and recent-catch photos at
