October 20, 2011

Sandwiched between a week of vacation in St. Augustine and five days of non-stop torrential rain with flooding, the SeaSquared got in some fishing.

The Larkin group did some shark fishing.  The Hoffos group added snapper fishing to their shark experience.  The Robertson family had a great day fishing both offshore and inshore, while Keith and Glenda Burres made the most of their trip to the reef. 

If you have spent any time at all in Marathon, you've surely visited the Old Seven Mile Bridge that connects Historic Pigeon Key with Marathon. 

At present, the Old Seven Mile Bridge is embroiled in an emotional tug-of-war with its very existence at stake.  Read more and see how you can help SAVE OLD SEVEN!

Until next time ... tight lines!

Save Old Seven


Reposted from SaveOldSeven.org ...

Since 1982, when a new Seven Mile Bridge section was completed to accommodate modern traffic and taller ships, the section known as Old Seven Mile Bridge (above) has served as a world famous fishing pier, jogging and walking route, and of course the major path to Pigeon Key. In the last 25 years, millions of visitors have enjoyed a ride on "Henry" - an authentic looking train designed to accentuate the visit to Pigeon Key.

At present, the Old Seven Bridge is embroiled in an emotional tug-of-war with its very existence at stake. While the concrete pylons of the famous structure are in remarkably good condition, there is no doubt the steel supporting the roadbed has deteriorated. Now, the Florida DOT has closed the bridge to vehicle traffic - prohibiting even the beloved "Henry" from plying its span. Rumblings from Tallahassee portend a sad future for Old Seven - even fishermen may no longer cast from the span. Worse, a five-year commitment by Florida DOT to provide ferry service to Pigeon Key is jeopardized by severe budget shortfalls in Tallahassee.

Despite these threats to Old Seven, an incredible 100,000 people annually walk the span for exercise, for views of priceless sun rises and sun sets, to view the incredibly abundant water life just below, and to dream of another century when life was not so fast.

Sustained and broad-based political will is required if local, state, federal, and private resources are to be secured to Save Old Seven.
