Fun in Matlache - Mullet Toss

11 March 2017 | Matlacha, FL
Yesterday we moved the boat to a new anchorage. Matlacha! What a fun little town. We're here for the MULLET TOSS. Charlie figures his bowling background may be the winner. It's a two day festival and in the community park next to the anchorage. $5 per toss - looking for backers.

We're anchored just south of the draw bridge in 11' of water maybe 100' from the shore.



There is only one other sailboat here and the owner stopped yesterday on his dinghy while on the way to the store to see if we needed anything. Friendly place.



The first spot we picked didn't work out. WEEDS! The anchor would not hold. In the middle of crab pots, getting it back up was not fun. Eileen worked hard with our manual windlass and conquered!

After calling a couple kayak rental places we found a great landing space for our tender and met Mike and Joan at Bert's for food and live music. Both good. Kayaking back to the boat in the dark was interesting. It was a full moon and short ride thankfully.

We sailed on the trip here. It took us just 5 hours to go the 19nm including weighing anchor and setting again (twice). The boat sails great!
