Fish House ~ One of the Few

click to enlarge

Getting crab pots ready for the season at Jug Creek Seafood, which is one of the few remaining fish houses in Southwest Florida still in operation. Commercial fishing used to be a way of life in this part of the world but not anymore. Cheap imported seafood, net bans, and strict catch limits has all but eliminated the industry. Jug Creek seems to be surviving by offering famous Pine Island clams, as well as awesome stone crabs and blue crabs, mullet (if you can get it, the smoked mullet is most excellent), fresh fin fish, and, of course, shrimp.

Great images of this old fish house.
