    I'm sure you fella's are sick of answering questions from OOSer's but I'm going to ask anyway.

    Better half and I are flying into Ft. Meyer's 4/25 and will be staying in Marco Island for 3 nights. I'm looking for intel in doing some inshore fishing. I am a muskie fisherman and would be more than willing to swap a day of fishing if possible but am more than willing to pay for a day on the water. Anyone have any suggestions on guides/charters to use or not use in that area.

    All input is appreciated!

    I would find a guide that will take you south into the 10,000 islands area...a good long run from Marco but the fishing is very good.....worth the extra gas money.

    or consider a charter out of " Port of the Islands"....not a far run by car from Marco but gets you in "unspoiled" Florida.

    Captain Andrew Bostic is an old friend of the family. He is one of the best fisherman around, period. He specializes in inshore everglades fishing trips, snook, reds and tarpon, out of Marco and Chokoloskee.

    You are going at a great time of the year for sure!

    Ft. Myers has a ton of fishing professionals over near Pine Island, my favorite!You will be getting into the Snook and Reds hard over there. Good luck!

    As cracker4112 posted - Captain Andrew Bostic - but this time of year being in season - he might be booked. But give him a call.

    Then check out http://www.backcountryguideservice.com/

    He's puts in at Goodland - just a mile off of Marco.
