One of the best places to launch your boat in Bokeelia is at the Bocilla Island Seaport, right next to the Bokeelia Fishing Pier and Captain Con's restaurant. Fees are affordable $5. for kayak launch and park, $10. for boat launch and park. The back bay location leads right out to Charlotte Harbor, near Boca Grande pass. Now is Tarpon Fishing Season, and Boca Grande pass is famous for tarpon fishing.
You can also rent a kayak or hire a captain for a half or full day fishing trip. Bocilla Island Seaport is right off Charlotte Harbor.
I got in a bike ride before morning thunderstorms rolled in across a glassy Pine Island Sound. It's clearing up now, so I'm headed down to the Pine Island pool and library, two other fun and free or almost free past times to enjoy on Pine Island.
Hope the rain holds off so I can get out on the water tomorrow. But it's good, we are getting the rain we've been missing all year.
