Marco Island - Saltwater Fishing Report
Fishing this past week was fair to excellent. The morning hours and late afternoons were the best. Temperatures soared during the mid day and there were places that I found where the water temperature reached 92 degrees.
The beaches are slam covered with bait so it is no problem getting a well full if that is the method you want to use.
We did very well on small to medium snook at just about every spot that we went to. We have been catching quite a few small redfish as well. The mangrove snapper are everywhere. Jacks will round out your trip with reel smoking action.
We hooked a couple of tarpon from fifty to well over one hundred pounds. I heard several similar reports from other guides this past week too.
Fishing should remain hot as the fall migration continues. Traffic is down and this is the time to get in on some great fishing. I'll see you on the water.
