Desperate in Marco

Fellow fishermen and women, I am in Marco Island with my family for our yearly vacation. We saved all year to have this happen. We have never been to SW FLA. My boys live to fish. I did not take into consideration the water temp down here this time of the year. We rented a boat from Rose marina Wed and hacd to work real hard to put 7 mangos in the cooler on shrimp that we had to wait until 10AM for delivery
Now I ask all of you for help. I ahve a 19 foot rental again tomorrow that is only good for backcountry , no Gulf. What can I do to put my boys on some fish,i.e snook, red or trout? I was thinking Goodland area but when I get there what do I do. We are from Jacksonville and the water just does not get this warm,

Please help, right now my boys think Marco is not the best place for fishing.

    You can try fishing some of the passes: Caxambas and around some of the bridges: Jolly bridge and around the area where the river hits the gulf. Get some good water moving/tide and pitch some baits around the rocks and docks. You should be able to hoist something out of those areas!

    Good luck!
