Florida Heitman makes a catch near her father’s hotel at Punta Rassa. Her father had converted the army barracks of Fort Dulaney in the Shultz Hotel for cattlemen shipping cattle to Key West and on to Cuba. Well heeled fishermen soon discovered the spot and Mr. Schultz took the barracks and transformed it into a far Fancier Tarpon House that was famous to tourists the world over.
