South Florida
November is the time of the year where it is tradition to reflect on what we have, where we live and how grateful we are. South Florida is a pleasing area and is one of the top destinations for tourists and explorers considering taking a nice break from their own hustle and bustle, however for those of us who call South Florida 'home', 365 days a year, its more than just a getaway. It is a way of life.
So this Thanksgiving, we take the time out to give South Florida a thank you and here is a list of just a few among many things that make South Florida so special:

Fishing Report
Rough and windy ocean kept a bunch of boats at the dock this past week and the weather doesn’t look so enticing this weekend due to the cold fronts, there has been a bit of fishing inconsistency.
