Fort Myers Restaurant with Waterview


SS Hookers overlooks the very waters where it all started. William Halsey Wood made history as the first person to land a Tarpon on rod and reel in 1885, right here in Punta Rassa. Up until that moment, many fishermen said it couldn’t be done, but he proved them wrong, capturing a 5-foot, 9-inch Tarpon that weighed 93 pounds with his bamboo pole. He didn’t stop there. The gentleman from New York City caught a total of five tarpon during his week-long visit.

His story has inspired countless others to pursue the “Silver King,” and for several generations now, people have flocked to this very spot in pursuit of Tarpon. Great minds among them, such as Theodore Roosevelt, Earnest Hemingway and Thomas Edison, have written passionately about the epic battle between fish and man that takes place here.

The most famous of them was author Zane Grey who did so much more than write about big game fishing. In 1924, he caught the world’s largest fish in Nova Scotia. His next move naturally, was to Fort Myers, Florida, where he and others started a big game fish charter service.

So the word got out, and today people come to the Gulf of Mexico from all over the world, demonstrating their intense fascination with big game fishing and their massive appetite for adventure.

SS Hookers honors that hunger, providing delicious meals and a place to share, and hear, fishing tales, both big and small.
