Second Annual Mullet Toss, Old Homosassa!

While it’s been sum-sum-summer hot since the beginning of May here in Florida and the first day of summer was June 21st, I always feel like summer starts the weekend before Independence Day.  That’s when we have our fireworks here in Old Homosassa.  And that’s about when scalloping season starts and our little village turns into crazy town!  This year we had rain storms for the entire holiday week that finally ended this weekend.  And that’s when this year’s party really started!

Saturday was the Second Annual Mullet Toss at Old Mill Tavern!  Here’s a few scenes from the afternoon!

I’m going to put a little disclaimer in here that I do not know most of these people.  I have a LOT of locals that check out this blog, and if you want me to remove any of these pictures, let me know!  (But I kind of think if you are going to be hanging out at a mullet toss, you just wanna have fun!)

Oh yeah, corn on the cob and pulled pork for lunch! And we may have consumed a few adult beverages but we weren’t driving!

And here are a few different mullet tossing techniques that we witnessed!

    • Looked like they were dipping them in water and putting in cooler after every toss then put back into the toss rotation. The thought is kind of revolting but it was very entertaining. The leftover mullet was supposed to go to the local fishermen for bait. Forgot to mention that all the money raised went to the Homosassa elementary PTO.
