Our Marco Island Fishing Charter specializes in Backwater fishing, or backcountry fishing. That focuses on fishing in the extensive networks of bays, mangrove islands and tidal creeks that permeate our region. Marco Island is the largest and northernmost of the 10,000 islands of Southwest Florida. With six miles of white sand beach and measuring over 24 square miles, it’s home to species of wildlife such as bald eagles, borrowing owls, brown pelicans, dolphins, and manatees. There are thousands of miles of shoreline, countless oyster bars and acres of seagrass beds that attract an abundance of saltwater fish. In these waters are four of Florida’s most sought-after game fish: Snook, Redfish, Spotted Sea Trout, and Tarpon. Thousands of anglers flock to Marco Island every year for their chance at a “Grand Slam”, catching one of each said species in one day. Perhaps the most significant factor contributing to our region’s excellent fishing reputation is the vast track of fresh and saltwater wetlands that are protected by state and federal laws. The list of species found in Marco Island waters could practically fill a book. The backwaters are also home to Jack Crevalle, Pompano, and Sheepshead. Booking a nearshore fishing charter to the Gulf? The nearshore waters are brimming with Tripletail, Barracuda, and King Mackerel. Journey out to deeper waters, you’ll come across Snapper and Grouper, as well as Cobia . If you’re looking to face off against some apex predators on a shark trip, underneath this area’s calm backwaters lie some seriously ferocious Shark species. Luckily, we only mean “ferocious” when it comes to the spirited fight these fish give. When you book a Marco Island Fishing Charter, you are guaranteed to figure out why it’s called Heaven on Earth!
