If not, here're some pictures......
Pictured above on the right is Gary Maes. Weekends at Jimbo's he's the man keepin the fish movin' and the beer ice cold. Here's what he had to say. "I been here 13 years. Jimbo's a special guy and I always told him I'll be here till he's gone. We buy all our fish frozen from a wholesaler, all I know is his name's Austin. Some of it's farm raised in Chile, and the Marlin's from Costa Rica.We used to have shrimp boats, but we stopped doin' it. We been here 54 years. Jimbo is usually here on the weekends before noontime. This is a very unique place, we had movies shot here, playboy, penthouse, you name it."
