Southwest Florida's "Ding" Darling Refuge

February 21, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

Author Norm Zeigler, a Sanibel, Florida resident, writes about what is probably his favorite place to fish. “The key to Ding’s superb angling is its rich variety of environments. An intricate maze of creeks, bayous, impoundments, grassflats, oyster bars and mangrove thickets provides niches for virtually every species of salt-and brackish-water fish found in South Florida’s inshore waters. The thing about Ding is that it is full of fish.” In Florida Sportsman.
