Info about the Fishing trip. And or exploring the area. Mound Key is a historical "Indian Shell Mound" not far from the boat launch, we will be sure to check that out.
If enough people are interested, (and enough fish are caught) I am willing to bring my outdoor grill/fryer to cook. Those interested should bring a covered dish to go with the fish. (chairs etc…) RSVP is very important for the cook-out, so be diligent and respond quickly.
This is the bait shop across from Lovers Key state park, if you need supplies. Just minutes from the small bridge area where we will be launching from.
We want to be geared up and LAUNCH by 9:00am! So come as early as you need to, so you’re ready. You can buy bait at the bait shop ( Live Shrimp) and tackle, ice, drinks etc.
Lover’s Key does rent Kayaks call for info [masked]-7788.
But I found another place the rents FISHING Kayak’s. It’s about 30min away that you can rent a FISHING Kayak for $55 for the day. But you have to pick it up and take it to the location. Kayak Excursions
