Dying Winds Lead to Better Marco Island Fishing

Capt. Lisa Williams
May 23, 2014
Marco Island - Saltwater Fishing Report

With higher than normal winds, the fishing in the 10,000 islands has been slower than usual for May.

Finding clean water has been difficult in the backwaters from Marco to Everglades Park, but for the experienced angler there are opportunities to be had.

Trout have been spotty , and holding in much deeper water than normal for this time of year.

Redfish are holding closely to the Mangrove roots and have been difficult to lure out.

Snook to 30 inches have been found when fishing live baits placed far under the overhangs.

Offshore has fared a little better with keeper sized Red Grouper being caught in 40 -50 ft. of water off Marco.

Amberjacks are plentiful on the structures in 70 plus feet of water and have provided quite a few good trips.

With diminishing winds there should be a lot more clean water and a hotter bite across the board.

Target Species:

Redfish, Snook, Amberjacks, Grouper
