Here's 2 pictures I took two weeks ago. This is where Florida mullet fishing started. I use to catch mullet back in the late 50s off of this bridge. look at the boats there are 4 cast nets in the water full of mullet. Zoom in on boats picture to see the mullet Bridge is on West coast of Fl. Guess which one it is. Got to have something to do with this crappy weather.:thumbup::thumbup:

I have been down there working hurricane Irma since September 21. I know I’ve crossed this bridge several times. However I was not there for recreational purposes. But I did look at this inlet several times.

I will post it if noone gets it. The water behind the boats is the gulf.

What type of work were you doing after Irma?

I inspected from Tampa to Marco island, then key west, then Miami Beach, then back to Naples for the last six weeks. Now I remember this place, when I posted a pic on Facebook everyone knew where I was at.

Ron, when we took the charter boat to Ft. Jefferson in 2009, after leaving KW, we entered the ICW at Ft. Meyers. By the time we reached Sarasota, I'd had enough of damn bridges... we exited New Pass.. went under that bridge and into the gulf. It was shallow.. 4-5' ... When we got to 10' foot deep water, I was quite relieved.
It was silly, but we made it out, wouldn't do it again. :whistling:

Jim I was raised on Bradenton Beach and fished and dove all around all those bridges before going into the Navy at 17 years old. My sister Linda lives in Bradenton and we visit at times. Ft Jefferson been there a couple times while in the Navy on the ASR Tringa out of Key West. Also have plenty of spots around Key west from the 5 years stationed there.
