Gone Fishing For Old Florida: Voices of Cortez

Season 3 Episode 1 | 28m 25s

Welcome to old Florida— Cortez. In fact, it’s the oldest surviving fishing village in the state, dating back to the 1880s. With tropical breezes, fresh fish, and laid-back locals this is truly a place out of another time. Fresh mullet, grouper and stone crab are caught here daily by local fishermen who still make a living by casting their lines and nets into these blue green waters.
