  • South West Florida Fishing Report - FL

    Fishbuster Charters' Captain Dave Hanson reported, "Long-time customer, Mike Conneally, who fished with me several times recently, fished again with me on a catch-and-release inshore trip in the chilly waters of southern Estero Bay on Wednesday, 12/13. Using live shrimp, Mike caught and released two black drum to 13 inches, twenty sheepshead to just under 12 inches, and a 14-inch redfish.


    Thursday, 12/14, was the only day this week that was calm enough to get offshore. I fished 23 miles west of New Pass with Cody Sturgill, Kerry Heller, John Hammonf, and Randy Green. We had good action all day on squid and cut-bait. The guys caught 26 red grouper, including one nice keeper at nearly 24 inches. They caught their limit of lane snapper (40 total) to 16 inches, and released thirty additional lanes. They also caught forty-five grunts, and kept the largest fifteen of those to 14 inches. Kerry battled, caught, and released a 47-inch shark, which added a little sport-fishing to the mostly food-fish mission!"
