Overview

Sportfishing Around Miami by Timothy P. O'Brien, Ed Pritchard

Today, it is hard to conceive that at the turn of the 20th century Miami, Florida, was a sleepy town of 500 inhabitants. Over the years, many influences have shaped Miami into the cultural, educational, tourism, and commercial center that it is now. One of the primary reasons for the city's growth was the development of sportfishing. It all began in the 1920s, and by the beginning of World War II an entire industry was born. This is a pictorial of those days.
