Marco Island - Saltwater Fishing Report
May was a mixed bag of weather and conditions that made fishing the 10,000 Islands fun and productive.
Fishing live shrimp on the bottom in the backwater produced a nice mix of Reds and Trout with a few large Snook for good measure. Gulp Shrimp were also popular with the Redfish in tight to the Mangroves, New Penny and Natural were the colors that produced the best results.
Near Offshore is beginning to heat up with lots of Sharks as well as some large schools of Spanish Mackerel, that are always a great target using everything from shrimp to silver spoons.
In the last few days we have been catching some very nice Mangrove Snapper on live shrimp in the fast moving waters of the outer island cuts.
