This weekend nothing in particular seems to be running through our waters, but in the spirit of fishing we encourage you to be optimistic, get out there and prove us wrong! Make sure to tag any good catches you post with #WaterfrontProperties for a chance to be featured! Here's this weekend's fishing report:

If you’re looking for dolphin, the bite has been pretty slow, but as usual it’s a matter of being in the right place at the right time. Weed lines have been barren, but if you find any floating debris on the larger side, you may be able to conjure some luck trolling with bonita strips or ballyhoo. Anyone who has caught mahi worth keeping lately has been around 1100 feet or deeper. Shallower than that and you’ll be forever cleaning weed from

Palm Beach International Airport (PBIA) ranked ninth best airport in the nation, according to Travel + Leisure Magazine.

Airports across the U.S. were rated on access, check-in, security, restaurants, bars, shopping, and design by readers of the popular travel magazine.

Stand-out features of PBIA are its eight-hole putting green, a full service salon and spa, the KidZoo play area, outdoor fenced-in pet relief areas, nursing suites, free WI-FI, charging stations, nine restaurants, and two bars.

Airports have become more than just a brief stop on the way to a destination, and now play a substantial role in economic development. A major draw for home buyers, having a world-class airport like PBIA adds to the desirable Palm Beach area as a top

Blue crabs have a sweet mild meat, and they're on the tastier side of the crustacean family, not to mention abundant in Florida waters. My father taught me how to catch blue crabs, and I highly recommend it as a fun family activity, especially if you live on the water! What sounds more fun- paying $20 for crab cakes at a restaurant, or spending quality time teaching your kids something new on your own dock? Here’s how to catch these delicious bottom-dwellers:

First off- while blue crab season is usually all-year-round in Florida, in an effort to retrieve lost and abandoned crab traps, there are seasonal closures every other year for 10 days. Currently, blue crab season is closed in Palm Beach, Martin, and St. Lucie Counties, but scheduled to open

Here in Palm Beach County golf and other physical activities are considered excellent forms of stress relief.  Palm Beach County has a surplus of private, as well as public golf courses  available locals to get their respective game on. Golfers who shine in practice often crumble in tournaments because they manage stress poorly. Stress is an inevitable part of life. 

Golf is like no other than in Jupiter, Florida. The area is home to just 60,000 people, but without going more than 10 miles up and down the coast you can get to the home of the world’s top golfers Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka, Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus and many others reside here. Officially, 35 PGA Tour pros live there, but between rentals and second, third, or

 Pictured: REEL DECISIONS captain and son with their "King of Kings"

This past weekend at Rybovich Superyacht Marina, over 85 boats from all over Palm Beach County showed up to support the much-needed research and awareness of prostate cancer by fishing in the Anglers For The Cure KDW Tournament.

The day of fishing proved sparse for most competitors, with kingfish being the only species that seemed to truly be showing up. Although most teams tried zig-zagging for wahoo at first light, the only wahoo caught was reeled in around 2 pm. At 22.9 pounds, it weighed in and won 1st place wahoo (and only wahoo on the board) in the Mark Gerretson Memorial Fishing Tournament in Delray Beach, as well as number one and only in the Anglers For The Cure

When we head out to the sandbar I know it’s going to be a long day of fun and relaxation, but the one thing I struggle with is leaving my ever-obedient sweet dog behind. That’s a long time for her to be sitting at home, especially when I’ve been at work all week. I usually try to bring her to a friend or family member’s house that enjoys her company, but it’s nice to know that we live in a place where most sandbars are dog-friendly!

Here are a few dog-friendly sandbars that are a perfect spot at low tide for your furry friend to run and play with other well-behaved dogs:

Jupiter Sandbar

Near Jupiter Inlet past the restaurants on your left and the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse on your right, the Jupiter Sandbar is made up of soft sand and a little

Leaving the house without my dog is probably the most guilty-feeling part of my day. When she realizes I’m leaving, she sits by the door with her nose down and the white of her eyes showing, looking up at me with those sad puppy dog eyes. Telling her she's not coming with me is the WORST!

The good news is, we live in a place where most people love dogs, and besides dog-friendly restaurants and bars, we have dog friendly beaches and sandbars! It may be easy to bring them along, but besides obeying posted rules in the area, dogs do need special attention in order to make sure you both have tons of comfortable fun in the sun!

Here are a few tips for caring for your dog at the beach:

1. Before heading outside, remember that dogs’ skin sunburns

Palm Beach County is applauding local police officers for their passion for not only serving and protecting residents of this beautiful place we call home, but also helping everyone rest easier knowing that they're also passionate about protecting our children. Multiple Palm Beach County police departments, including Jupiter, Palm Beach Gardens, Boca Raton, Delray Beach, North Palm Beach, Palm Beach, West Palm Beach, Riviera Beach, and Lantana, have signed agreements with the school district to patrol local elementary schools until the district police department hires its own officers. 

According to the agreement, officers will be patrolling school campuses a half-hour before school begins through a half-hour after school lets out, and “shall

Team Elam is a nonprofit organization formed by ex-NFL star Abe Elam along with his brother, Matt Elam of the Baltimore Ravens. The charity hosts events throughout the year to help kids in Palm Beach, Martin and Broward counties succeed, teaching them skills in both athletics and in life.

"I told myself whenever God gave me the opportunity to give back, that's what I would do," Elam told the Palm Beach Post in an interview, "I just hope these kids take notice of it, make the best of each opportunity they get, and come back and do great things as well."

Since 2008 when the organization was formed, their two biggest events have been the annual "Day in the Park" and "Charity Weekend." At a day in the park, an average of 2,500 families join together

Brooks Koepka, a Jupiter resident and Cardinal Newman High School graduate, won his second 2018 major title at the 100th PGA Championship on Sunday, totaling three major championships in his young career.

28-year-old Koepka, amongst Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, and Jordan Spieth, is the one of five golfers in history to win three or more majors before the age of 29.

Sealing the deal with pars on the 17th and 18th hole at Bellerive County Club, he finished with a 4-under-par 66 and set the 72-hole PGA Championship scoring record with a 264, trumping Jupiter Island’s Tiger Woods and crowd favorite Adam Scott.

Koepka has now jumped from number 13 to number 3 on the FedEx Cup Top 5 after factoring in the PGA Championship. The FedEx Cup
