Pine Island Sound Pirates

At World's End, where the law is scarce and the water is vast, pirates have always found their home. Florida from the 1600's into the start of the 19th century was just such a place, and the pristine waters of Southwest Florida's Gulf Coast were ideal pirate safe havens. Even when the Spanish and British Navies were chasing pirates out of the Caribbean, wise pirates like Black Caesar and Brewster Baker made their way up the Florida coast. While Tampa Bay is typically associated with the most famous Florida pirate--Gasparilla, in truth his legend is based 100 miles to the south in Charlotte Harbor. It was there and the waters of Pine Island Sound where most documented pirate history. If you're going to Do Florida Right, at some point, you'll have to commandeer a ship, hoist the colors, a set a course for the ghosts of pirates' past.
