  • South West Florida Fishing Report - FL

    Fishbuster Charters' Captain Dave Hanson reported, "On Wednesday, 10/24, I fished offshore again, this time with Patrick Keane and three of his friends. The guys were in town for business, and managed to squeeze in a morning of catch-and-release fishing 22 miles west of New Pass. NOAA’s forecast for calm, two-foot seas was off by a foot or two, and waters were choppy. The guys used squid and cut-bait to catch and release several red grouper shorts, blue runners, and a half dozen grunts."


    1.) Angler Dan Velenga with a 19-inch red grouper, one of several red grouper shorts caught on squid and cut-bait and released 25 miles west of New Pass on a recent offshore Fishbuster Charter.




    2.) Angler John King with a 14-inch lane snapper, one of a mess of keeper lanes he and his family caught on squid 19 miles west of New Pass on a recent offshore Fishbuster Charter.
