Fishing in Marco Island

There’s a beautiful duality to a fishery such as Marco Island that’s becoming increasingly hard to come by these days. Most angling hotspots will either advertise as unabashedly family-friendly, serene backwater havens, or boast themselves as the exact opposite, the extreme reel-screaming, line-melting sportfishing getaways. Marco Island, on the other hand, fully intentionally lacks any such focus, remaining perfectly content to offer its dedicated schools of visiting anglers the best of both worlds. For those longing for calm waters, breathtaking scenery and little to no travel time, you’ll find yourself right at home fishing for some of the Sunshine state’s most celebrated game fish along the famed mangroves of the Ten Thousand Islands. While going after that SW Florida Grand Slam (Snook, Tarpon and Redfish all in one day), expect a variety of local wildlife to be cheering you on - anything from manatees, porpoises and an encyclopedic array of curious birds are a staple of virtually every journey venturing into the backwaters. On the other side of the spectrum, the adrenaline junkies have the entire Gulf at their disposal, with a variety of Marco’s wrecks and artificial reefs teeming with trophy catches such as Kingfish, Cobia, Permit, Amberjack, Grouper, Snapper, as well as several species of shark. So if you’re not used to making compromises when it comes to your fishing, count on the waterways of Marco Island never to ask you to.
