Visit Marco Island and enjoy top-tier fishing with Southbound Fishing Charters! Captain John and his elite team of native captains grew up on the beautiful island, and spent their lives exploring the abundant fishing its surrounding waters have to offer. They’ll take you to all their favorite spots, and show you a great time on the water!
Fish aboard a brand new 24’ Pathfinder performance fishing boat powered by a 300 HP Yamaha outboard motor or 2021 25’ Carolina Skiff as we get skinny through the backwaters of Marco Island and the 10,000 Islands. These beautiful vessels have a wide and spacious deck that can comfortably accommodate up to 6 guests, where the large bow offers a stable platform to fish from. There are 2 livewells for bait and catch, along with a clean icebox to keep refreshments chilled throughout the day.
Capt. John and his crew will have quality Shimano fishing equipment ready to put you on the fish. Trips include all the gear you’ll need for a productive day of fishing, as well as live bait (Shrimp, Pilchards, or Mullet), fishing licenses, and bottled water. The locals always know best and guarantee we’ll clean and fillet your catch so you can take it home or the best places in town.
You have the chance to fish Marco Island and the Ten Thousand Islands targeting Tarpon, Redfish, Snook, Pompano, Snapper, Black Drum, Trout, Grouper, and Shark.
Children are very welcome on board, as are anglers of all skill levels. With access to a premium fleet of vessels, Southbound can accommodate large groups and unique trips upon request.
