Deep Sea Fishing in Marco Island

Nestled on the breathtaking Paradise Coast, Marco Island is famous for its amazing inshore angling. However, its offshore waters also offer an abundance of fish to anyone willing to make the journey. And to do so, all you have to do is hop aboard one of the many Marco Island deep sea fishing charters.

The offshore fishing grounds in this part of Florida are home to numerous artificial reefs and sunken wrecks. These, in turn, play host to a number of exciting fish species. As you explore them, you'll usually reel in the likes of Red, Vermilion, Lane, Mutton, or Mangrove Snapper. There are also Black, Red, Gag, and Goliath Grouper prowling about, as well as Amberjack.

If you decide to do some trolling instead, expect to target the likes of Spanish and King Mackerel, Cobia, Barracuda, and more. While these can be encountered closer to shore, the main action takes place 20+ miles off the coast of Marco Island.

Of course, if you go far enough, you'll have even more fish to reel in at your leisure. Along the distant deep sea spots, more than 40 miles offshore, you'll see Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and Tuna gobble up your bait. Or, you can fish the Air Force Radio Towers for giant Goliath Grouper, Sharks, and big bottom fish.

Some of the reefs lie as little as a few miles offshore. These will give you the chance to put some fish in the cooler even on half day trips. To hunt bigger game, you'll head deeper into the Gulf of Mexico, meaning you'll need at least 8 hours on the water. Charter captains usually depart from one of Marco Island's marinas, which are easy to get to. So all that's left to do is to find the right one for you!

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

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.

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.
