Trout, Redfish, Pompano Good Fishing Despite Cold and Rain

Capt. Lisa Williams
February 18, 2013
Marco Island - Saltwater Fishing Report

Cooler weather has put the bite back in fishing here in the 10,000 Islands.

Larger Trout have begun to move into the bays and grass flats. The method of targeting them is as varied as the places they have shown up, but a tipped jig either worked slowly across the grass or under a popping cork has been hard to beat.

Sheephead to 8 lbs. are frequent tenants of deep oyster bars, or Coral rocks on the outside of the pass. Small pieces of shrimp on extra small circle hooks will give you the best shot at one of these tasty fish.

Redfish are still holding up in the shallower water and have been tempted out with live shrimp or cut bait.

Pompano and some small permit have been caught in clean water, as well as some Spanish Mackerel and Jacks to 3-4 pounds.

With fishing being as good as it's been for the last week, even though we've had rain, wind and cold, this next week with temperatures reaching a perfect 80-85 degrees and sunny, the fishing should be on fire!

Target Species:

Trout, Redfish, Sheephead, Pompano
