Capt. Wright Taylor fishes the Ten Thousand Islands from Naples to Everglades National Park. Centrally located out of Marco Island, I’m strategically located to some of the best fishing in Florida.
The weather here is cooperative most of the year. The mangroves offer shelter from the wind under all but the harshest of conditions allowing us to fish when anglers in other areas are sitting at home.
This area provides year-round fishing for snook and redfish and almost year-round fishing for tarpon. The larger tarpon move through between March and June and can be sight fished while they are laid-up in shallow coves. I can promise you that there is nothing more exciting than seeing a laid-up tarpon eat your fly and explode the water. In the winter and early spring you can sight cast large snook in the backcountry of the everglades and in the summer cast to herds of snook swimming down the beach front.
