Fly Fishing Marco Island

Experience world-class fly fishing and light tackle spin fishing for the Gulf Coast’s most sought-after fish. Captain Colin McMullen specializes in targeting shallow water species in the bountiful waters surrounding Marco Island and the Ten Thousand Islands.

You’ll be fishing from a 16’ Hell’s Bay Biscayne boat that’s powered by a single 70 HP Yamaha engine. This light skiff can go through every shallow nook and cranny to get you to where the best bite is. It’s pretty much the best fly fishing flats boat money can buy. There’s plenty of room on the boat if you want to bring a friend along and cast in tandem.

Capt. Colin is always more than happy to customize the trip to your preferences. Shorter trips might be better suited for novice anglers, while fly experts should definitely come down for Tarpon season. Going after the Silver King on the fly is the real test of angling skill. Of course, fishing for the likes of Snook, Redfish, Sharks, and Black Drum is also plenty of fun.

Expect to use only the best fishing gear for the job, including Nautilus reels, and G-Loomis rods. Not only that but Capt. Colin will also clean and fillet your catch after the trip. All you need to do is bring a pair of polarized sunglasses, along with some drinks and snacks if you’re so inclined. Phenomenal fishing at any time of year is the rule around here, so what are you waiting for?

Member since August 2017
I was born on Cape Cod, a peninsula on the Southeast coast of Massachusetts. My father was a commercial fisherman and introduced me to fishing by the age of two. When I was four years old, my family and I moved to Marco Island, FL. Every chance my father got, he took me out fishing and taught me everything he could about the sport. I learned a lot from him and by the age of seven, I saved up my allowance to buy my first fly rod. I taught myself how to double haul and caught my first Snook on fly from the beach that same year. I was hooked from that point on, and my passion for the sport began its evolution. I am currently attending Florida Gulf Coast University as a Biology major while guiding part-time.
