EVERGLADES CITY, Fla. - With Fall, comes an original Florida treat. Foodies will be cracking Stone Crab claws later this month. But for the next two weeks the Stone Crab Fisherman will be working incredibly long days.

In honor of those fisherman, the historical Rod and Gun Club in Everglades city hosted the third annual Blessing of the Fleet Sunday afternoon. Representatives of three local congregations welcomed the fleet and said a prayer with each crew.
