  • South West Florida Fishing Report - FL

    Fishbuster Charters' Captain Dave Hanson reported, "I was off the water for all of September, but fished in southern Estero Bay on a windy morning Tuesday, October 1, with Roy and Derek Brown. The guys used live shrimp to catch and release three redfish to 19 inches. The 19-inch red would have been a keeper, if not for the current moratorium on harvesting reds. The guys boxed four black drum to 20 inches, along with three keeper mangrove snapper, out of ten mangs that they caught."

    1.) Angler Rick Flaharty with an 18-inch redfish, caught on shrimp and released (due to moratorium on harvesting reds) in Estero Bay on a recent inshore Fishbuster Charter.




    2.) Angler Engle Merz with an 33-inch cobia, caught on cut-bait and released 27 miles west of New Pass on a recent offshore Fishbuster Charter. This cobia was two inches short of legal keeper size.
