On your way to Pine Island, be sure to stop off at Matlacha
3962 NW Pine Island Rd , Matlacha, FL 33993
Matlacha is an Old Florida style village. There is great fishing there. This is a must see place. There is a place to stay where you can open your motel door, take a couple of steps (I do mean a couple) and fish.
Here is a picture of a weather rock in the back of the Fish House Marina
This pelican was waiting for someone to feed it.
