Fishing Marco Island
Marco Island is so popular for fishing mainly because of its amazing versatility. Here you have the best of the Gulf of Mexico where you are sure to reel in King Mackeral, Permit, Cobia, Shark, Barracuda, Grouper and Snapper. The Ten Thousand Islands are teeming with Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Trout, Pompano, Snapper, among many others! During the spring, baitfish move north through Marco Island, and with them, so do the predator fish. Giant, spawning Snook are plentiful, huge Tarpon are fished in the passes and off Marco Islands Coast, Pompano are plentiful in the shoals, and hardy Redfish cruise the oyster beds.
Fishing includes mainly the 10,000 Islands, since Marco Island is located at the northern tip, beginning at the edge of the Gulf, in the passes, and around the shoals and sandbars, reaching deep into the mangrove islands. It is here that the surroundings have remained unscathed, and the deeper you traverse back into the channels, winding creeks, and limitless bays, the further you will go back into time. As the largest of the Ten Thousand Islands, Marco Island is located on the Gulf of Mexico in Southwest Florida. With miles of beautiful, mostly uninhabited islands, bays, canals, and creeks spread out in a stunning sea scape, Marco Island is an ideal tourist and angler destination for the fisherman who wants the whole package: top notch sports fishing combined with stunning natural beauty.
