It is important to get an experienced guide and base your comfort level on the initial "interview" you have with the Captain. Generally, their demeanor on the phone will tell you a lot about how accommodating and friendly they will be on your trip!

Take the guess work out and book a guide to show you how to fish the current, tide, wind, etc. They know were the fish are!

Mornings can be cool but sometimes better fishing, most afternoons warmer but wind can add some excitement. So many places to fish it’s amazing

Check out the inshore fishing first if you are nervous about deep sea fishing. Great time and wide variety of fish!

Marco Island has some of the best fishing around. We caught everything from Snook, redrish, and even a small Tarpon that jumped like 10 times which was a blast for my Nephew.

Be open to catch whatever is around - you can’t control the weather or what’s running but if you keep an open mind and want to catch fish, you’ll really enjoy yourself...

Go out of Caxambus or that side of Island, I don't think you can get to the great spots if you go out of Rose Marina, too far of a drive, for backwaters anyway.

I would recommend booking a charter with one of the excellent charters available on the island. We booked with Capt John from Southbound Charters and had a great time.

The weather can be a little unpredictable due to the fact we are winding down from hurricane season. The air temp is a bit cooler. Just make sure you check the ten day forcast.

Book Captain John with Southbound Fishing Charters. He knows the area like the back of his hand. It's the best way to maximize your fishing potential.

Expect a good day of flats fishing. If the wind is up, visibility will make it hard to find snook or reds, but if you are open to catching whatever is running the day will be successful.
