    Fishbuster Charters' Captain Dave Hanson reported, "After many days of rough seas, NOAA predicted calmer seas on Tuesday, 1/29. But, Joe Kovach and his dad, Paul, didn’t trust the forecast, and neither did I, after seeing that seas were very rough the previous day, and predicted to get back to 4 feet on Wednesday. So the guys decided to fish the backwaters instead. We fished an outgoing tide in southern Estero Bay, using live shrimp. The guys caught five sheepshead, including three keepers to 16 inches.'


    Steve and Beth Wilson, joined by their friends, Steve and Judy Sonda, fished southern Estero Bay‘s backwaters with me on Thursday, 1/31. The sheepshead bite was on and, using live shrimp, the group caught fourteen keeper sheepshead to 19 inches."
