If you like to fish???? there is a deep sea fishing group that goes out on the ocean. It's website can be accessed from the Virginia Trace website.
When hubby sells his boat........that's what he's going to do....once we get to TV that is.

Another great idea. Fish is not that difficult to prepare.
Red snapper in parchment paper might be something to try, if they have the red snapper.
Broiled cod.
Or, if you prefer to "bread" the fish....haddock or flounder (not sure if that is in Florida waters)......shrimp.

Fish in Paper / Pesce in Carta


You can do this in parchment paper or aluminum foil.......pesce in carta/fish in paper. Red snapper is particularly good, but you can use any fresh fish.

On Tuesdays at the farmers market in Lady Lake there is a guy with a truck on the corner that sells the best shrimp and fresh fish. He has his own fishing/shrimp boat. His prices seem very reasonable. I also get fresh seafood at Marion market on the weekends. His prices are reasonable as well. I find the guy on 466 expensive.

There is a great place on RT 40, called Lena's Seafood, open 11-8 daily.
The owners have another place in Salisbury, MA. As soon as you walk into the establishment you know the fish will be great.....

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the Fisherman's Cove Restaurant on Rt 44 west towards Inverness. It's about 10 miles west of I-75 on the right across the road from Wild Bill's Airboat Rides. It's a small building but fish is outstanding! There is a menu online. Beer battered haddock is the best fish fry since upstate NY!

We go to Homosassa to Shelly's to get our seafood. It is a nice day trip from the bubble and the fish is excellent. The guy from Clayton's on 466 was disappointing to us...the fish was not as fresh as I want. By the way, there is a butterfish...Japanese butterfish - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, but it is not what is served around here.

I agree!!! Great place for fried and baked fish. Building is real old, but fish is great.
