Marco Island Florida Sports and Outdoors
Marco Island lies in the midst of some of the world's best game fishing waters. Whether choosing offshore or backwater, experienced fishing guides are available to serve both the avid sports fisherman or the weekend enthusiast.

Backwater catches include Trout, Mangrove Snapper, Sheepshead, Whiting, and small Shark. Redfish, Tarpon and Snook are caught seasonally.
