  • South West Florida Fishing Report - FL

    Fishbuster Charters' Captain Dave Hanson reported, "After several days of rain and stormy weather, I got back out fishing on Wednesday, 5/23, when I headed offshore 21 miles with Phil Marcianati and Reid Wisniewski. The guys used squid and cut bait to land a dozen keeper lane snapper to 17 inches. They released two dozen red grouper shorts to 19 inches, along with five 14-inch triggerfish and a 36-inch sharpnose shark.


    John Teichgraeber and his mom, Heidi, fished the backwaters of southern Estero Bay with me on Friday morning, 5/25. They used live shrimp to box a 21-inch redfish, three keeper mangrove snapper, and a 13-inch sheepshead. They released four short sheeps.


    Looks like the tropical depression hanging over our area is going to cancel out a holiday weekend of fishing, but we'll be back out catching whenever we can!"

    1.) Angler Tony Stincon with a true black grouper, which is muchmore rare than gag and red grouper, caught on cut-bait and released 24 mileswest of New Pass on a recent offshore Fishbuster Charter.


    2.) Angler Scott Fritz with a 16-inch lane snapper, caught oncut-bait 23 miles west of New Pass on a recent offshore Fishbuster Charter.
