Marco Island - Saltwater Fishing Report
It feels good to be home. I have been to New Mexico for the last month. We then drove back to Florida and made a stop in the New Smyrna Beach area. The Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon area are beautiful.
I got back on the water and have seen that the fall migration of bait has hit the beach. During the early morning hours you may see tarpon crashing through the bait along the beaches.
We did some great sight fishing for snook amongst the knock downs on the beaches on the outside of Cape Shore in south Marco.
We then headed for the bushes for more snook as the tide started to come in. The fish really turned on. We managed to boat a couple of redfish as well. Jacks rounded out the catch and kept us busy in between snook strikes.
We have had a serious deluge of rain for the past week. It looks like it could break today. I hope to get caught up on all my chores and get some serious fishing done this week. I will get back to a regular regime quickly. I'll see you on the water.
