Spent spring break on Marco Island, fl. Caught a bunch of Jacks, lady fish, catfish, mackeral, sharks, blue runners, and some others I couldn't identify. It was fun having a canal leading to the ocean right in the backyard. Saw a manatee, southern stingray, dolphins, an a monster tarpon right off the dock. Took a charter one day and it was brutal. Only caught a few mackeral, and 3 bonnet sharks. Coolest thing was a 5 foot barracuda stealing our catches by the boat.

Hope you enjoy your vacation!

Just got back from there a week ago and the fishing was just turning on. The water temp was cold for this time of year so the fishing was just heating up. Caught a few flounder in the surf but that was about it. Fishing was incredible off the Rod and Reel pier. Caught lots of salt water sheepshead- very tasty.Then the Spanish mackeral moved in and it was a blast. Must have caught over a hundred over the weeks time. Those fish are fast and aggressive. Didnt catch any over 5lbs but sometime caught them 2 at a time on the double jig rig. Throw in a few pompano and it was an awesome week of fishing. Cant wait to go back !
