    Dave, most of those places in the Keys are gone or have been yuppified out of most people's budget, but there are still some. The Turtle Kraals in Key West went "upscale' years ago, BUT, if you bring your own catch in, they will still cook it the old fashioned way for a reasonable price. The Half Shell Raw Bar is abourt the same as it has always been, but it cost 5 times as much nowadays and you don't get paper plates anymore. LOL You are right about Islamorada back in the old days before it became an incorporated "village" That stretch of US 1 around the inlet and marinas at Holiday Isle, Whale harbor, etc was ground sero for some fishy good eatin! I think that the old Coral Grill was the first to go bad and then it went away.

    Siiiiiiigh.
    The good ole days.

    Unfortunately no. It sure sounds like a good time. Too bad stuff changes. Even down here in Newport I used to spearfish and get clams in the harbor and by the pier. Those days are gone.
