Bright blue sky, calm blue sea, and a slight tropical breeze gently blowing the palm tree branches this early evening.  There are so many healthy options other than picking up a cold one today.  Look for baby turtle hatchlings along the dunes, but please don’t touch.  Take a brisk walk along the waterline and the sandy white beach.  Let Fido play fetch on the dog beach or ride a bike alongside the seagrapes.  

Whatever you decide, it’s must be the right decison, because living along this 4 mile stretch of unobstructed beach in Juno and Jupiter,  is heaven, just look at this is the view of the Atlantic Ocean!

Saltwater Fishing in South Florida

There is an old saying that fisherman have used for ages: “match the hatch” which was introduced by fisherman who attempt to match whatever the fish is feeding on. The bait should mimic as closely as possible to the natural food the fish are feeding on. Matching the hatch is just streamlining the process, because of the factors that play in color choice, such as water clarity and cloud conditions. But there is no doubt that choosing the right colors can make a big difference in how fish respond to an offering.
I have spoken to several anglers in the South Florida area on a daily basis to ask what colors work best for their trolling lures.  I was informed that the guideline that holds true for most fisherman: “Clear water or…

Every summer our South Florida beaches are draped with bright colored tape and signs to show where these sea turtles have buried their eggs. Florida beaches are the number one place for sea turtles to nest from May – October. Sea Turtles are most common up and down the Atlantic coastline; groups organize together and do night-time sea turtle walks in July to observe these ancient creatures in their natural state.
Getting the chance to see a Loggerhead, Leatherback or green sea turtle in action is such an unforgettable experience. Visitors are led to these spots on the beach where these sea turtles are digging a hole about one or two feet deep with their flippers. After the sea turtle prepares its nesting ground on the beach the creature will start filling

Unusual Baits to Fool Big Bass


It might be time to mix it up with some abnormal looking bait that you never thought could get a Bass’s attention. Largemouth Bass are very confident feeders that are capable of confronting large prey items- hence the nickname “bucket mouth.” Effortlessly absorbing prey nearly the size of them, largemouth bass rule freshwater shallows and normally do not let chances go to waste.

Big Bass often keen on frogs, lizards, birds, mice, snakes and more. Artificial water snakes are common throughout South Florida, slithering across lily pads. Field mice and rats normally hunt along the shorelines and sometimes will go for a swim. Nothing better to a largemouth bass than a tired mouse that is struggling and is tempted to climb on
