Aiden (13 ) Hooked up to his first tarpon during a hill tide in Boca Grande Pass
Hotels and resorts are open and are accepting reservations. We can finally get a haircut again and Universal Studios opened their "city walk" feature earlier this week. Establishments such as bars and restaurants are slowly opening, and the stores are beginning to be stocked again! The fishing, its on FIRE! Tarpon season has gotten off to an amazing start. The sheer number of fish is incredible. The most fish I' ve seen in recent seasons.
Beaches, parks and boat ramps are open in Charlotte & Lee Counties. If you are having trouble finding a place to stay, contact us for a current list of resorts. Read below for full information and visit us soon.
May 18, Governor DeSantis’ Executive Order 20-123, which brings all Florida counties into Full Phase 1 : Safe. Smart. Step-by-Step Plan for Florida’s Recovery, went into effect. The order provides the following:

Outdoor seating is permissible with a minimum of six feet between parties.
Retail sales establishments statewide may open storefronts if they operate at no more than 50 percent of their building occupancy and abide by the safety guidelines issued by the CDC and OSHA.
