  • South West Florida Fishing Report - FL

    Fishbuster Charters' Captain Dave Hanson reported,"Tuesday morning, 12/4/18, just ahead of a cold front due to arrive in the afternoon, I fished 20 miles west of New Pass with Ralph Marino, Bud Mulchy, and their friends, Ed and John. The guys used squid and cut-bait to catch six keeper lane snapper, two bluefish to 20 inches, twenty-six grunts, a triggerfish, and six red grouper shorts. They boxed the lanes and the grunts, and released the rest.


    Long-time customers, Erwin and Millie Matusiak, fished southern Estero Bay with me on a chilly, windy Wednesday morning, 12/5. They used live shrimp to catch eight sheepshead to 14 inches, including five keepers, and they released two redfish shorts and a crevalle jack."

    1.) Angler Don Lubbenhusen with a 20-inch snook, caught on shrimp and released in Estero Bay on a recent inshore Fishbuster Charter.




    2.) Angler Mike Connealy with a 24-inch king mackerel, caught on squid 35 miles west of New Pass on a recent offshore Fishbuster Charter.
