Captain Dave Hanson of Fishbuster Charters caught lots of variety, including some BIG ones this week, using live shrimp, crabs, and snapper, off Wiggins Pass, including the artificial reef there, this week. Our clients caught permit to 38 inches and 24 pounds, goliath grouper to 59 inches and 100 pounds (released), keeper-sized mangrove snapper (to 17 inches) and keeper lane snapper, keeper triggerfish, keeper gag grouper to 24 inches, barracuda to 35 pounds (released), nurse shark to 6 feet (released), jack cravalle, ladyfish, grunts, and porkfish. Clients included the following parties: Dan Weinrich, whose party had to compete with numerous big barracuda, in order to catch the keeper-sized mangrove snappers; John Smith, whose party feasted upon 9 keeper mangrove snapper; W. Billings, who saw a 200 + pound goliath grouper compete with a six-foot nurse shark for the bait (the shark won!); and Kevin Kraft, whose daughter, Brook, reeled in a hogfish head tat alone weighed over 2 pounds--Imagine the size of that hogfish if the shark had not gotten there first!
