Fishing Charter Guides Marco Island & The 10,000 Islands, Florida

There are plenty of opportunities for fishing on your own around Marco Island, but securing the services of one of our experienced local guides will give you the best shot for a memorable fishing experience. Whether your goal is to go offshore for grouper or back in the bays and creeks for snook or tarpon, the guide will put you where the fish are, will help you select the right live or artificial bait, and will coach you on techniques. You are welcome to bring your favorite rods and reels, but almost all of our guides have good quality, rigged tackle available for your use at no extra charge.

Call or write ahead to one of these guides to reserve your fishing trip. Note that many of them have specialties with respect to targeted species, fishing areas, and angling techniques. Click on either Backwater Guides or Offshore Guides
