Rose Marina Fishing Report - Marco Island, Fl

July 31 – August 6, 2015

CONDITIONS

Thankfully the monsoon is over. But the ten inches of rain have wacked up the fishing (temporarily) with a sudden drop in water temperature from 88 to 82; a big drop in salinity levels and a brown staining of the water from the mangrove runoff. The westerly winds haven’t helped either as they muddy the incoming water. But all that will pass in just a few days as our hot summer returns. Look for improving conditions this weekend and then carrying through the week. Adding to the mix of impediments however is a full moon early weekend with racing tides, especially the afternoon outgoing. That, too, will ease come mid week as we regain normalcy. Good news, the winds remain relatively placid and will help the water go clean and green as they ease in velocity.

Rose Marina Fishing Report - Marco Island, Fl

July 24 – July 30, 2015

CONDITIONS

This week, in addition to the superheated water temperature (89 degrees yesterday) and the real feel air temperatures posted close to 110 degrees, you will have some wind from the west to contend with this weekend. Forecasts call for some afternoons with gusts in the 20 mph category. That will rough up the water offshore and most likely stir up some mud in the open backwaters. Both conditions will have a further effect especially in the backwater……..offshore it will just make it uncomfortable with some rocky sea conditions. But all that will dissipate by mid week and all we’ll be left with to complain about is the awful heat. The water will pick up tidal speed as the week progresses as we’re heading for a full moon. The afternoon incoming will be a bit friendlier than the morning outgoing.
