any one have any recommendations as to where to do some wade fishing in Marco island off the beaches. Was thinking about going to tiger tail beach and the lagoon. Would appreciate the help.
Jorger, I can vouch for this and the comments from PMN000. I was there last year in early Sept. I woke up at the crack of dawn and walked down to the beach. There were reds nosed up to the beach every 10 yards. I managed to catch two decent fish before a couple of joggers ran past me on the edge. As I watched them run down the beach, I could see the wakes of fish leaving the scene as they spooked off. After that, I saw no more fish on the edge, but lots of bait. Later in the day, I fished a sink tip and shooting line and distance cast a chartreuse whistler. I caught a variety of fish including, jacks, ladys, trout and puppy reds. That evening, I found some stretches of beach with no people on them and I started seeing the reds and a few snook coming in close again. Overall, there was plenty of action for a busy beach, but the quality fish were where the people weren't.Start looking for the fish 100’ down the beach laying right up next to shore. As you walk down the beach they will swim off a bit.
Great spot. I have done really well there on the outer beach for snook and caught some nice jacks, trout and a red in the lagoon. My in-laws used to have a condo there.
