|Tim Adams||Gulf Wars: Florida Net Ban||
In 1980, fisherman Tim Adams relocated his fishing operation further up the coast, from Jupiter to Sebastian. From that fishing town on old Route 1, it’s just a short hop through Sebastian Inlet, to the ocean and its fisheries. Even closer, the lagoon’s waters teemed with a variety of fish, from silver mullet that Adams netted for recreational fishing bait, to the tasty spotted seatrout, redfish, and pompano that southern retailers and restaurants cherished.

|Michael Davis||Gulf Wars: Florida Net Ban||
Like many of the fishermen, Mike Davis still keeps his boats on the island, but has moved his home to the more affordable mainland.
Both Mike and his wife Beth are from old Florida families that worked hard to build theregion’s economy and weathered its ups and downs. So it’s only natural that when their town’s prosperity and their own livelihood were threatened by a vote of the public, the Davis’s fought as hard as they could.
