Marco Island - Saltwater Fishing Report
Fishing this past month has been sporadic. Prior to the tropical depression that passed through Florida, the fishing was red hot. Small schools of redfish came into the area an d provided some good action. The snook were very happy and all was well.
The depression that passed through brought with it heavy rains and wind and riled up the Gulf and mixed with the water in the backcountry. Things were tough for awhile and we resorted to catching some nice pompano, mackerel, and mangrove snapper.
Things have settled down in the past week and the snook and a few redfish are starting to cooperate. Lots of snapper and mackerel are cruising the points of islands where the small bait are sizzling. Throw a live bait or soft plastic around these areas and expect some kind of response. Summer months can be red hot times to go fishing especially for those of you who like to throw artificial. The waters have less traffic now and all options are open. Let's go fishing. I'll see you on the water.
snook, redfish, trout, tarpon
