Captain Dave Hanson of Fishbuster Charters Reports
Captain Dave Hanson of Fishbuster Charters fished with live shrimp and light spinning tackle about 15 miles westward of Wiggins pass this week, and also at the artificial reefs off Bonita Beach. Our clients caught limit after limit of large mangrove snapper to 21 1/4 inches, as well as occasional yellowtail snapper and lane snapper. They caught gag grouper to 22 1/4 inches, as well as catch-and-release short gags and red grouper. Keeper sheepshead to 18 inches were abundant, along with keeper hogfish to 16 inches, keeper triggerfish, jolthead porgies to 14 inches, and blue runner. The blue runner are a sign that kingfish are likely to be around soon. Also spotted were two large bonito. Our clients this week included Earl Slusser, the Lee Wompler party, the Gene Ricci party, the Celeste Enfante party, and the Lee Bialkowski party. Find info. and recent photos at
