Welcome to Fishing For a Living

Fishing For a Living is a website dedicated to commercial fishing in Key West, and a forum for the opinions of Peter M. (Pete) Bacle.

Peter Bacle is the owner of Stock Island Lobster Co. – the oldest fish house in the Florida Keys, and the largest dockside producer of lobster in the state of Florida. Pete’s View is a blog reflecting a lifetime of commercial fishing experience in Key West, and forty years of first hand involvement in the regulatory process governing the fisheries.

The politics page diverges from fishing, and reflects Pete’s personal political view, both locally and nationally. Key West has become one of the most liberal cities in America, and contrasting political opinions are not just unwelcome, but rarely voiced by anyone. Whether interesting or not, Pete’s view is sure to be politically incorrect.
