Offshore, football-sized blackfin tuna have been pretty easy to get ahold of in about 200-400’ of water. You can use small daisy chains or troll with feathers, but quite a few have been caught trolling with small-skirted bonita strips as well. We had a lot of success with neon green and white skirts this week, but colors are a game that changes by the minute, so try a few different ones and switch the rest out as you go if your target fish is tending to a particular color. Dolphin have been in the same areas as blackfin, and wahoo have been non-existent. On the first cold front that rolls through, we’ll have our local favorite Junkanoo Lures ready. Regardless of our lack of cold

On November 10th, Westchester Country Club in Boynton Beach will be hosting the 9th Annual Golf “Fore” Paws to benefit the Justin Bartlett Animal Rescue.

The rescue’s mission is to reduce the number of homeless dogs and cats from becoming victims to shelter euthanasia, while educating the public on the importance of adoption and spay and neuter in the community.

Years ago, only larger sailboats, trawlers, and yachts crossed from Florida to the Bahamas, but with modern technology and engineering, center consoles as small as 25-30 feet have been making the trip with ease.

Between Florida and the Bahamas lies the reason behind Florida’s world-class fishing- the Gulf Stream. This warm and powerful current rushes from south to north, and while crossing the open ocean can be daunting to a newcomer, it’s entirely possible with the right amount of preparation and research. Here are a few considerations when attempting to make a safe crossing.

Proper Equipment

Regardless of the current weather, the boat should be large enough and built well enough to safely travel over open ocean when the wind and seas aren’t

Three new restaurants just opened up in Boynton Beach and they're worth giving a shoutout to. From white table cloth dining to casual BBQ, check out these spots next time you're in south county.

1. The Venu

The fanciest of the three, The Venu offers a sleek, sexy atmosphere with live music and specially planned events like a “Very Intimate Evening” with Los Lobos coming in February. The spot opened just about 2 months ago and offers lunch and dinner as well as a Sunday Brunch. The menu is Italian with steakhouse elements and lighter bites are offered on the “Showtime” and happy hour menus. The Venu is a great place to eat, listen to music and just vibe with some good company in a nice setting.

Snook and jacks are being caught in the early mornings or low-lit times of the day at the Juno Pier, Jupiter South Jetty, and inshore. Live mullet can be found during low light periods of the day away from boat traffic, and is usually the best bait for snook, as well as top water plugs.

Bottom fishing boats have been catching kingfish and mutton snapper near 120 – 200’ with sardines, and dolphin has been pretty consistent offshore, as well as blackfin tuna in 200-300’ with small-skirted bonita strips. 

This weekend, the 10th Annual Bluewater Babes Fish For a Cure Tournament will be going in full force, so don’t be alarmed if you see boats decked out in pink decorations and festive bikini-clad anglers. These

With the mullet run being the highlight of the past couple of weeks, most fishing has been geared toward snook, large tarpon, and amberjack chasing schools through inlets, inshore, on the beach, and at the Juno Pier. Your trustiest bait is live mullet itself, which can be found during low light periods of the day away from boat traffic. If you’re looking for a little more fun in exchange for less reliability, using top water plugs creates some exciting action as snook will strike these much harder, sometimes becoming airborne exploding on the surface.

Reef anglers should be catching some kingfish and snapper this time of year, but this week has

According to U.S. News, Florida residents can breathe easy knowing they live in the state with the best natural environment in the nation, placing number one overall for drinking water quality, urban air quality, and low pollution health risk.

The World Health Organization states that air pollution is a major environmental health risk, and by living in areas with high air quality, people can reduce the burden of disease from stroke, heart disease, lung cancer, chronic and acute respiratory diseases, and even dementia.

While the sunshine state may be best known for gorgeous beaches, oranges, and Hawaiian-shirted retirees, Florida also leads the country with lowest air and water pollutants. With the sea breeze sweeping over mostly flat terrain in
