Tigertail Beach Park - fishing kayaks or kayaks for fishing?It's always been tough to beat Tigertail lagoon and Sand Dollar spit in the summer, but since Smudge at Tigertail Beach Rentals has added two fishing kayaks to their wide range of well maintained rental equipment it's now quite impossible! Not many people know there are plenty of fish in the lagoon, from redfish to snook and sheepshead to young tarpon, but it used to be difficult to access secluded points easily. No longer. The new kayaks are kitted out with baitwells, rods and reels and are ready to go. All you need is bait, jigs or plugheads. Smudge is always around early when the fish are biting and the mullet jumping, so go soak a line in the tranquil waters of Tigertail lagoon!Cool Beans - Hot Time Known for their prowess handling two 35ft sailing catamarans, the guys at Cool Beans Cruises have now added a 20ft captained pontoon boat to their fleet. Their new 2½ hour trips to secluded barrier islands for shelling or sightseeing in the backwaters (which are not easily accessible to larger vessels), are available for individuals or families of 6 people or less. At $45 per person you may not be guaranteed that elusive Junonia shell, but you are guaranteed a wonderful time with dedi-cated, knowledgeable captains and crew. Endless Summer Adventures - all year round A new company to the area offers three unique ways to participate in one of the fastest growing watersports - stand up paddle boarding. Endless Summer Adventures, managed by BreAnne Barrett, is based at Pelican Bend on the Isles of Capri. You can choose from 3 hour guided eco tours, 1 hour paddle fitness classes or hourly rentals directly from south beach on Marco. The guided eco tour includes a fifteen minute pontoon boat ride with boards, to the calm waters of Rookery Bay, followed by thirty minutes of instruc-tion, before setting off on the two hour tour through Rookery Bay and the 10,000 Islands. Their motto says it all - "No shirt. No shoes. Just Paddles." After your eco-tour, why not put your shirt and shoes back on and stop by the tikki bar at Capri Fish House for a relaxing cold cocktail?Try SplittinWaves with a 3 Seater Waverunner RentalIf you're looking for a waverunner rental for an hour or a day, SplittinWaves will bring a new Sea-Doo to the launch ramp at Caxambas Park at the south of Marco, so all you have to do is jump on and enjoy the ride. With rentals from 1, 2, 4 and 8 hours and room for three adults, you will be off in the waters heading through the mangroves or out in the Gulf in no time. Take a picnic and explore some of the islands with san-dy beaches to the south or tie up at a waterside restaurant for lunch. Spam, Spam, Spam, SpamRegular readers will know our affinity for the Little Bar on Goodland. The view, the food, the music, but most of all the quirkiness. Ray and his sister Niki, established Spammy Jammy nearly 20 years ago, not only as their last party before summer recess, but also following in the good old Indian tradition of warding off the coming season's threat of storms and hurricanes. Spam is the staple food when there is no electricity to cook with and hurricanes always threaten at night when you're in your pj's. Combine the two and voila - Spammy Jammy was born. To be held on June 30th this year with Raiford Starke All Spam Band headlining. So put on your best jammies, make an original spam creation and go and experience a little taste of quirky Florida.Expansion at Skin Renewal SystemsLiz Havens and her daughter Adrienne Willmeng - the ladies of Skin Renewal Systems - are expanding again. Not only have they recently taken over the unit next to their salon at 1000 N Collier Blvd and created a beautiful new reception area and some additional treatment rooms, but they have added a new generation to the family team... Adrienne gave birth to John Stephen this March... many congratulations!18
