Marco Island - Saltwater Fishing Report
Our weather here in the 10,000 Islands has been all over the charts. From cold grey skies to blistering heat, all in a matter of 2 weeks. But it has made the fishing interesting if nothing else.
Redfish are still being found, but mostly in unlikely places. Oyster bars and deep water have been a good bet, using jigs or buck tails tipped with shrimp.
Trout are still roaming on and off the grass flats. Sizable fish are eager to eat a juicy shrimp suspended from a popping cork and drifted on an incoming tide.
Sheep head are moving further up into the backwater and are easy to find on a moving tide.
My personal favorite has arrived in good numbers, Tripletail!!
For the first time in at least 10 years I am seeing multiple fish on almost every spot.
