Marco Island, Florida - Saltwater Fishing Report
12/16/07 Marco Island and the Ten Thousand Island

It was a bit tough today with the wind and low tide. I had Roger Franklin from Long Island NY out today. We found some cleaner water in a few mid bays around Marco Island. The reds were there but hard to spot. Roger ended up with 4 reds the largest about 25 in. I had him using a very small Black EP and also my Brown Bunny Clouser. The wind was tough but Roger punched through it OK.

Looks Like the first good cold front on Sunday so I moved a couple trips to a later date.

Give me a call, I have some weekends open and a few week dats still in January. Sorry Roger asked that I don not publish pitures.
