Marco Island - Saltwater Fishing Report
Since my last report, I have been out of town quite frequently. I have had a chance to get out on the water a few times this past week. Fishing was excellent. We caught some small shiners along the beach with no problem. The fish didn't seem to mind their size at all.
We caught snook at about every spot that I went to. Most of the fish were small to 25 inches, but we did get our butts handed to us a few times by larger fish. On Monday, we had eighteen snook to the boat by ten o'clock. We probably squandered half a dozen snook as well.
We also caught three redfish too. All of them were legal with the largest being about twenty six inches. Snappers and jacks were in the mix as well. I did see a couple of tarpon this week but I didn't pursue them as they were single sightings. I plan on looking a little harder tomorrow.
I had similar outings on Tuesday and today. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. The mornings are cooler and the fishing is just plain better with cooling water temperatures. Fall migrations of bait and mullet will start in a hurry. Get ready for some super action. I'll see you on the water.
Marco Island Fishing Forecast:
With fall in the air, fishing is going the best that it gets. Bait migrations will bring in the predators
