Marco Island - Saltwater Fishing Report
Fishing this past week improved as water temperatures crawled back to the low seventies. We were able to stay into a steady flow of snook action most of the time.
There is still plenty of bait along the beaches of Marco and in the near shore bays of the upper Ten Thousand Islands. Snook started to reappear in their old haunts on the outside as well as in the back bays. A cold front had come through and put the water temperature into the mid sixties. We managed to catch a few legal size snook throughout the week as well.
There were a few redfish around too. On one day this week, we caught six in a half day. Most of them were small but two of them were in the slot limit. I am also starting to catch a few nice trout while snook fishing. That is a sure sign that you could probably hammer them if you set your mind to it.
There were reports of some sizable pompano catches in Big Marco pass this past week as well. Tube jigs bounced on the bottom are a sure bet. Pink jigs are also a good choice too.
Fishing should remain consistent so long as we don't get any real bad cold fronts in the future. I'll see you on the water.
Marco Island Fishing Forecast:
Action will remain steady for the remainder of the month.
