Hathaway park,   Shell Creek leading to the Punta Gorda reservoir.  

Written directions and driving map at bottom of page from Fishin Franks.
Hathaway Park is a Freshwater Boat ramp, 

There are 10 pictures of two fishing locations, it takes a while to load.

 The Ramp is fairly steep, Not too bad but make sure you set your brake.

Fishin the Creek if you go up stream the Pan fish, and Crappie is good, Down stream or to the left, takes you to the Punta Gorda Reservoir
I think the Bass fishing is better down stream.




























This is the Punta Gorda dam " shell creek dam" that makes the reservoir,
Snook fishing below the dam
Bass, and crappie above.
