Keeper gags, Nice Sheepshead:Bonita Beach,FL Fishbuster Dave

Postby fishbuster » Sat Jan 31, 2004 2:20 pm

Another cold front brought rough seas this week, and kept us in port until Thursday. On Thursday, I fished with the Frank Bettendorf party at the reefs off Bonita, where we caught sheepshead to 17 inches, and released gag and red grouper shorts.

Friday, I had a great day fishing with Dan Gaus, 19 miles off Bonita, with live shrimp. We caught three keeper gag grouper to 29 inches. The largest one bit a snapper we were reeling in on top of the water, and we used the snapper to tease the grouper while we got another pole that was baited with a piece of cut bait into the water. The gag bit the cut bait, and we reeled him in! We also kept ten mangrove snapper to 16 inches, and released a bunch more, along with Spanish mackerel to 23 inches, porkfish, grunts and porgies. The photo attached is of angler Mike Jones with a 23 inch gag grouper, caught on a recent Fishbuster Charter. Find complete info and fish photo album at www.fishbustercharters.com
