Marina at Edison Ford Winter Estates, Fort Myers, to open in March 2014

by on Mar.05, 2014, under Ft. Myers, Sanibel and Captiva


More changes are coming to downtown Fort Myers. The latest includes breathing new life into a longtime hot spot along West First Street.

We toured the former Royal Palm Yacht Club – now the Marina at Edison Fort – to find out what this change means for the future of the area.

Right on the water, sits a piece of paradise. It’s been undisturbed for years.

“This is God’s greatest dining room, Southwest Florida,” said Grant Phelan with Phelan Holdings, INC.

It’s a place some claim is unlike any other.

“There is nothing as nice in Naples or anywhere else as right here in Fort Myers, and on this river,” said Phelan.

Many may remember it as the members only Royal Palm Yacht Club.

Now, it’s the Marina at Edison Ford; and ‘God’s greatest dining room’ is open to all.

“We put a tremendous amount of sweat, tears and equity into it,” said Phelan.

Phelan and his business partners gave this once staple a new lease on life.

The popular Southwest Florida Pincher’s Crab Shack is now new to downtown and set up on the second floor.

“This really does put the icing on the cake for us,” said Chris Pendleton president and CEO of the Edison & Ford Winter Estates.

Edison & Ford Winter Estates partnered with Pincher’s Crab Shack. Pendleton says the revitalization opens new doors for the area.

“It really connects us not only to downtown and the new River District and what’s happening in Fort Myers; but it also connects us to Captiva, Sanibel Island [and] out to Fort Myers Beach,” said Pendleton.

Those that have seen the highs and lows can’t wait to see what comes next.

“We’ve been sort of excited watching this unfold – all the activity and all the beautification thing that they’ve done,” said Libby Maxwell with First Harbor Towers Condo Association.

Phelan’s goal is to turn the Marina at Edison Ford into a downtown destination.

“Let’s turn West First Street into the nicest area of downtown Fort Myers and an economic center for downtown Fort Myers,” said Phelan.

The grand opening for the marina is scheduled for the first week of March.

Florida Sportsman Expo Slated for Fort Myers Feb. 1-2, 2013


The first Expo for 2014 takes place Feb. 1-2 in Fort Myers at the Lee Civic Center.

2012 reversed the trend in prior years of dropping attendance and exhibitor participation with big gains. We’re working hard to build on this momentum with increased ad budgets and aggressive promotional efforts. Our event program is still like a three-ring circus with simultaneous presentations each day at five stages along with demonstrations, free fly-casting lessons at our 100-foot indoor pond, free lessons at the cast net pit, our popular offshore and inshore Rigging It Right tables, a drawing each day for a free 42-inch flat screen TV, prizes at the Kids Casting Pond, and of course rows and rows of exhibitors showing the upcoming line-up of tackle, gear, boats and accessories for 2014. Come and join us.

Learning To Live With Red Tide


Learning To Live With Red Tide

February 28, 2013 | Posted by John Stevely, Florida Sea Grant Extension Agent

Check out the Beach Conditions Report

Since the devastating red tide of 2005, we have been fortunate in that there have only been infrequent minor red tide events along Florida’s southwest coast. During 2005, residents and tourists were subjected to what seemed like endless months of dead fish washing up on our beaches and beach-goers fled our beaches due to the respiratory distress caused by the neurotoxin produced by the red tide organism – the stench from rotting fish didn’t help matters. Newspapers trumpeted headlines about “dead zones” in the Gulf where essentially every living creature had died.

Red tide is caused by the presence of a microscopic plant-like organism that secretes a nuerotoxin.

Unfortunately, in recent months, there have numerous reports of red tide along Florida’s southwest coastline. We can only hope that we do not see a repeat of the 2005 red tide event during the upcoming year. Such severe red tides like we saw back then usually only occur once every several decades, but there are no guarantees.

Red tide is a natural phenomenon.  Accounts of red tides have been reported since the days of the Spanish explorers. Currently, there is debate among scientists as to the extent to which nutrients in urban run-off prolongs and/or intensifies red tide events. Following the red tide of 2005 several local governments have adopted ordinances aimed at trying to reduce nutrient enrichment of run-off by regulating the use of lawn fertilizers. However, even if such measures prove to be effective in reducing the severity of red tide, we will never completely eliminate red tide.

Now we have a tool to help us cope with red tides. Thanks to the Internet you can quickly check the Beach Conditions Report. This website provides a real-time assessment of how severely red tide is affecting local beaches (reports on individual beaches are supposed to be updated twice a day). Information is provided on whether dead fish are present and whether beach-goers are experiencing respiratory problems.

How is this helpful? Let’s say you were thinking of spending a day at the beach or perhaps just enjoying dining at a waterfront restaurant. A few days ago or perhaps last week you remember hearing something about there being red tide in local waters. The prospect of coughing and smelling rotting fish causes you to abandon your plans. However, by checking the Beach Conditions Report you can determine if this is really necessary.

It is important to note that red tide conditions can change from day to day and from beach to beach as water currents sweep the red tide along the coast. Perhaps conditions at your favorite beach have dramatically changed in the past week or even from a few days ago. Perhaps you see that red tide is indeed present at the beach, but conditions at a beach just 10 miles away are fine and you can still take the kids to the beach. My experience has been that this is indeed possible. For example, today (2/28/2013) beach-goers at Siesta Key can expect to experience some slight respiratory distress, but everything seems fine at the Manatee Co. beaches.

We may not be able to completely eliminate red tide, but at least now you can easily obtain the information you need to make good decisions on your water related activities during red tides.

Looking For GPS Numbers for Tampa Bay and Southwest Florida?

by on Nov.27, 2012, under TAMPA BAY AND SOUTHWEST FLORIDA

I’ve had lots of requests on the site for GPS coordinates of reefs, wrecks and offshore fishing holes.  The list is too long to print, so it’s time to “belly-up” and get your very own copy of my latest (2012) book, The Saltwater Angler’s Guide to Tampa Bay and Southwest Florida.  Click the link to the right (on the sidebar) and you’ll be magically taken to Amazon.com, where you can get a copy at a discounted price.

In addition to GPS numbers, the book also has essential information regarding fishing from all ports from Bayport (in Hernando County) to Chokoloskee (at the top of the ‘glades).
