Marco Island - Saltwater Fishing Report
Even though we had back-to-back cold fronts this week, I had some very successful fishing trips. Sheepshead, black drum, redfish, and trout have been providing steady action all week.
Most of us have been concentrating on the deeper runoffs and rivers in the Marco Island area. I have been using cut shrimp with enough weight to keep it pouncing on the bottom. We have been catching small to medium-sized redfish in the process as well.
When venturing into the 10,000 Islands, we've been catching some nice keeper size trout along the deeper sides of the islands. Lady fish have been in the mix as well. For the dedicated angler, it has not been uncommon to catch quite a few redfish working the oyster bars methodically with the jig.
Winter fishing in between cold fronts, has produced some of the best action I've seen in years in several years for this time of year. Escape the doldrums of winter and give us a call. I'll see you on the water.
Marco Island Fishing Forecast:
Winter fishing will remain the best we've seen in years.
