Gulf water temperatures range from the low 60's in the winter to the
high 80's in the summer and fall, providing good fly fishing during
the winter and outstanding fly fishing during the spring summer and
fall. The principal species available to the backwater fly fisher
are snook, redfish, tarpon, jack crevalle, seatrout, ladyfish,
spanish mackerel, pompano and mangrove snapper. If you don't mind
going a bit offshore and using different fishing techniques, there
are also opportunities for cobia, tripletail, king mackerel,
barracuda, grouper, snapper, amberjack, drum, shark, permit and many
other species. Fortunately, most anglers do go offshore and so the
backwaters are usually free from crowding, even during the busy
winter season.

Imagine being only a mile or two from your hotel or condo and
enjoying quality fly fishing with no one else in sight other than
your guide and perhaps a fishing partner. And you can easily be back
in time to shower and then enjoy a good dinner at one of our 90 top-
notch restaurants. Some of my personal favorites are the Island Cafe
(French), Cafe de Marco (Seafood), Conrad's (Beef), the Bavarian Inn
(German), Arturo's (Italian), La Casita (Mexican) and Su's Garden
(Chinese). Later, take in the beauty of one of our famous gulf
sunsets, go to the movies or enjoy the entertainment available at a
local lounge. And during the day, while you're away fishing, there
are about 120 retail shops on the island to get the attention of
your family. Marco Island is one of those special places where world-
class tropical fly fishing and all the comforts of home co-exist
side-by-side.

All local guides agree that spring and early summer provides
fantastic fly fishing. Capt. Stacy Mullendore, who berths his 19-
foot ActionCraft on the island, is especially enthusiastic.
According to Stacy, "Late spring and early summer will bring warmer
weather, lighter breezes and a relief from the cold fronts which
periodically disrupt local fishing. With rising water temperatures,
massive numbers of baitfish and crustaceans invade the area and of
course the snook, tarpon and redfish gorge themselves on this
cornucopia. The tarpon migration is in full swing, the snook are
beginning to spawn on the beach and the redfish are very active
feeding on shrimp and crabs. These gamefish and others will be along
the beaches, in the passes and all around the barrier islands,
taking advantage of the plentiful food supply."

Another local charter captain who likes the spring and summer
fishing, especially for tarpon, is Capt. Andrew Bostick, a long-time
Marco Island resident. Says Andrew, "Marco Island is blessed every
year with a migration of large tarpon between the months of March
and August. On their way northward up Florida's west cost, these
tarpon enter the creeks and bays of the Marco Island area to feed
and to rest. Sight fishing in the shallow bays for laid-up tarpon in
the 100 pound range can be most exciting! They can also be caught
while feeding in the passes. Here, you're casting in the current to
rolling fish, hooking up within a few feet from the surface. The
best months for these large tarpon are March through May. June
through August can also produce fish, but the action tends to be
more spotty because of the higher water temperatures. During this
latter period, the best time and place is early morning near the
beach."

"Baby tarpon, weighing from 2 to 20 pounds, can be found around the
island throughout the year. Pound for pound, they are just as feisty
as their larger cousins. Fishing is usually best in the summer. They
are most often found in the major canals, deepwater bays and the
remote inland creeks in the mangrove forest. I recommend the safe
release of all tarpon; they have little food value and an artificial
replica can be provided by most local taxidermists."

Fishing in the late summer and fall is best in early morning and at
dusk, when water surface temperatures are at their lowest. September
and October can produce some outstanding fly fishing for redfish.
This is the time when the larger ones will come out of the Gulf of
Mexico and invade the inshore passes and estuaries. A 10-20 pound
redfish will put some serious stress on your fly tackle.
