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:

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
