Snook Fishing Marco Island to Everglades City

Posted on by John

Snook fishing Marco Island to Everglades City remains steady despite the wind. My clients have added persistence to their fishy vocabulary. The wind has kept us in the 2nd bays back inside as fishing outside points has been tough. But we are finding snook with regularity. Snook fishing is a hunt.

We are using Zman 4 inch jerk shads with the fluke tail mostly Dark and Stormy purple. 4inch Gulp swimming mullet in white have also gotten their share of strikes. With that in mind using a top water, “walking the dog” such as skitterwalks by Rapala have produced some early morning action. Snook are ambush predators so take your time. That presentation needs to be close to them. Shadow lines, don’t forget them.


Beside snook fishing Marco Island to Everglades City my clients have also produced some decent redfish action over the hard bottom, oyster bars and mangrove shore lines. Using a hair jig 1/8 oz with a very small piece of shrimp has worked well but also we’ve tried a hair jig with a gulp swimming mullet in white. But the secret is? When doing that trim some of the hair back first. It’s a good combo. Look for that moving water and again don’t neglect the shadow lines.

When you fish with you’ll be fish with fresh tackle, St Croix rods, Penn Battle 3 reels, all light tackle and on a classic platform, a SilverKing Signature skiff. Personalized fishing for 2 anglers and all are welcome, novice to experienced. Teaching is a specialty and you will learn the ins and outs of the ecosystem. You will learn why and when we fish certain areas. Take this knowledge and apply it to any type of fishing.

You can text or email and I will tailor a trip for you and show you the ropes of snook from Marco Island fishing to Everglades City.
