Pine Island, Florida The Tarpon Lodge

A salty dose of Old Florida culture, and surprisingly within reach

Old Florida is having a serious moment these days, and this island perched off the Gulf Coast feels a million miles–and years–away from the hurly burly of Fort Myers.  To make the escape complete, bed down at the gracious, old-school Tarpon Lodge.  Rates start at $115; tarponlodge.com

As we head into spring, our chef will prepare fresh salads using greens, herbs, seasonal fruits and vegetables from Pine Island Botanicals. One of Southwest Florida’s best farms, Pine Island Botanicals follows the principles of natural and organic growing.

Look for daily, unique creations using lettuce varieties such as Golden Frill, Ruby Streak, Italian Arugula, Spinach Bloomdale, and Tangy and Spicy Mustard lettuces.

You’ll then enjoy a delicious lunch at Tarpon Lodge. After your meal, you’ll walk over to the Randell Research Center where you’ll be led on a guided hike to the top of a pre-Columbian mound of the ancient Calusa Culture. This Center is dedicated to learning and teaching about the archeology, history and ecology of Southwest Florida.

What’s Biting?

Catch a local fishing report from Captain Erik Flett, Native Attitude Charters

Tarpon season has been great these past few months, but the big numbers are starting to dwindle. Right now, snook abound in and around the passes on live bait. And you can always find trout up on the grass flats, catchable with live or artificial bait. And some more good news…there have been quite a few snappers around.
