Vintage Promo Film:
Fishing Fun in Sarasota County (1950’s)
Wow. This film has good shots of the Sarasota city waterfront, bridges and Venice jetties from way back when. It shows surf fishing off Englewood, bass fishing on the Myakka River, wade fishing in the shallows of Lemon Bay and tarpon fishing in the Gulf.
It also shows fishing for sailfish in the Gulf with a nice tail-walking sequence. Produced by Capt. Marty Foster at Florida Film Studios Inc., Sarasota. Sound quality is not great but adds to the vintage style. Recognize that voice?
It’s pretty long film at 25 minutes, but if you like to see some history of our area keep watching…
