Macks,Jacks,and Hookin Snook

Marco Island - Saltwater Fishing Report

These past few weeks we have been dodging our first serious cold fronts. We have a new one bearing down on us as I type. With water temperatures bouncing like a yo yo, there have been good days and slow days. But the overall picture has been pretty good with all things considered.

Snook fishing has been slow to excellent. It mainly depends on how far out you are from the last front or how far you are in front of the next one. Wow, I don't know if that makes sense. I have been fishing all around the fronts so I have seen both spectrums. I have caught snook this past week mainly by pitching live bait around trees in the water. Most of the fish have been in the mid twenties to slot size. We have been catching jacks and ladyfish as well. I haven't been catching many redfish in the past couple of weeks.

Bonita, mackerel, and a few tarpon have been adding excitement near shore. They are ganging up on schools of glass minnows just offshore. That fishery seems to be slowing down.

We have a massive front coming our way so I believe that most sane people will get knocked off the water for a few days. I will try to get back to you when the coast is clear.

Marco Island Fishing Forecast:

December will give way to winter fishing tactics
