The old Bahia Honda Bridge which is no longer in operation was originally part of Henry Flagler’s Overseas Highway. It was used as a railroad from 1912 – 1938 and a highway from 1938-1980. The completion of the bridge showed and unbelievable amount of perseverance. Thousands of workers were killed during the construction of the Overseas Highway because of periodic storms as well as the strongest hurricane to ever hit the Florida Keys in 1935. Today it still stands as a gorgeous backdrop for some of the most spectacular Tarpon fishing on the planet. When hooked up to a fish you almost feel like you are stepping back in time when you see old Bahia Honda Bridge as a backdrop to a Tarpon jump.
