Report for Naples, Marco Island and the Ten Thousand Islands

Capt. Matt Hoover
July 8, 2006
Marco Island - Saltwater Fishing Report

No Brainer

Fishing has been excellent these past few weeks. Scaled sardines, threadfin herring, glass minnows, and finger mullet have been getting blasted during the morning hours by snook, redfish and tarpon. By mid day, the clouds form over the Everglades and signal the coming of clockwork afternoon showers. Thatís just fine because by then, the heat becomes a bit to bear and you usually have caught plenty of fish to feel satisfied.

From South Marco to the Everglades National Park, fishing has been off the charts. There are plenty of snook, redfish, trout, jacks, and tarpon of all sizes to keep an angler busy. The sardines have been coming and going but getting enough for the well hasnít been a big problem. Besides, I have been doing real well with jigs and a swimming body like the Hybrid. These fish have not been hard to find as they have been everywhere. I have been catching snook and redfish on the outside points during the high incoming tides. When the tide flips and pulls away from the bushes, I have been getting fish along shorelines with downed trees and oyster bars.

Tarpon of all sizes have been in the passes and along the outside shorelines. I always go loaded for bear this time of year as you never know when an opportunity will come about.

This is the time of year when anyone can have a great day. It is not rocket science. Just get out there and fish. Did I mention the snapper bite? When they become a nuisance, just scale down and get even with them and catch a few. Iíll see you on the water.
