Lunch at Harpoon Harry’s

Wanting to keep an eye on the water, in case there were other anglers out there, we decided to eat at Harpoon Harry’s, which sits at the end of the Fishville mall and overlooks the bridges, the yacht basin, and — if your eyes are sharp enough — the entire mouth of the Peace River and most of the Myakka’s. Even if nobody was hooking up, we figured the constant boat traffic would provide sufficient entertainment.
