Marco Island - Saltwater Fishing Report
June in Southwest Florida means the start of the summer fishing season.
Afternoon storms are frequent and sometimes severe, so morning is the preferred time to fish. It is generally a little cooler and you can beat the heat as well as the thundershowers.
Snappers are moving in from the deeper waters and taking up residence in the passes around fast moving water. Shrimp on a small weight are my choice for targeting these tasty fish.
Snook are always a favorite target for most anglers and they can be found in most of the cuts and channels surrounding the 10,000 Islands. White Bait is usually preferred but they can be tempted with a lively shrimp as well.
Flounder, trout and sheep head are also in good supply, though most of the trout are undersized.
With the warmer water the sharks are in good supply in the last 2 weeks we have caught eight different species of sharks within just a few miles of the marina. There is something exhilarating about pitting your talents against one of these Apex predators…if you dare.
