Motel Shark Catch

Field review by the editors.

Islamorada, Florida

Bud n' Mary's Marina is a popular jumping off point fro ocean anglers enjoying time in the "Sportfishing Capital of The World." Our interest, naturally, is in their Fishing Motel sign. The sleep and fish combo has been the ticket for Bud n' Mary's since they first opened in 1944. The sign features a dead realistic appearing shark, about 15 feet long, dangling from a beam.

According to their website, the motel rooms were recently remodeled, and look nice -- not like a bilge hold or anything.
