Matlache to Captiva, Island

13 March 2017 | Captiva Island, Florida
Breezy
We stayed in Matlacha for the weekend leaving for an anchorage in the Roosevelt Channel at Captiva, Island. A northerly was on it's way and we wanted to have a protected anchorage. A place where we could explore during the breezy conditions would be great too. Captiva Island fit the bill.

But before we left we got to explore Matlacha and go to the Mullet Toss. The men's competition was done, darn.


This is how it's done.

We also made an ice run after eating mullet at the "Blue Dog Bar and Grill" and Key Lime Pie with beer. Yummy.



Sunday Mike picked us up on his 17' flats boat. Going 40+ mph in a foot of water was interesting getting through the pass to his house. Joan loaned us her car to make a grocery run.


Thanks Joan for the use of your '95 Jag!

Joan also made a great lunch. Ham and allot of root vegetables. Eileen was in heaven! We filled our water jugs and was back on the boat just in time for sunset.

Early Monday morning we took off for the 25nm trip. Luckily the wind was in our favor most of the way and we sailed. With the anchorage completed by mid afternoon it was time to try a little fishing.

At Pelican Bay Eileen found a Welk shell with the little animal inside. We kept him alive for several days but he eventually passed. We cooked him but decided not to try eating.



Out he came...


Became bait. This is a lure from Joe's friend, Larry, who gave it to me. It's about 40 years old and made in Panama. Larry guaranteed to catch fish.



And I did...two saltwater flathead catfish. This was the biggest. Lucky guy...I don't clean catfish.



Baby Brother


The winds came, a northerly. Our 2nd of the trip. Let's just say upper 40's at night is cold on a boat. But we have the oven to make food and the motor to run to warm up the inside of the boat. It works and so does the smoke alarm!
