Fishing Report: I fished Estero Bay with Terry Major and friends Monday. Fishing the points on the west side of the bay, behind the Hyatt, we released one snook and nine mangrove snapper, all caught on live shrimp.
Wednesday, I again fished Estero Bay, along the tree lines. Michael Scipione and Christina Rodriguez caught and released a four pound cravalle jack, a 13 inch black drum, and mangrove snapper, using live shrimp.
Friday, fishing in 35 feet out of New Pass with Frank Vada and friends, we used live shrimp to catch keeper king mackerel, Spanish mackerel, mangrove snapper, triggerfish, porkfish and porgies.
Fishing Saturday with Reiner Neuman and friends, Dennis, Dave and Ennis, we caught keeper mangrove snapper, Spanish mackerel, porgies and porkfish, on a slow tide in 30 feet out of New Pass.
