Just days short of her 16th birthday, a Jupiter area caring young lady named Zoe Loren passed away. Her family and friends knew they lost someone very special.  The bright and generous teen had touched so many lives. To keep her memory and spirit alive the Zoe Loren ‘Make a Difference’ Foundation was established.  

The Zoe Loren Make a Difference Foundation keeps her essence alive through the good works of the foundation. Proceeds from years of 5K fun runs in Jupiter have been able to award scholarships and contribute funds to causes Zoe was zealous about.

Now in its 8th year, the Annual Zoe Loren 'Make A Difference' Foundation 5K Run/Walk will take place at Carlin Park in Jupiter, Florida on Saturday, November 10, 2018 beginning at 9:30 am.

Whether you’re preparing some lobster for your family, or gifting a few tails to a friendly neighbor, cleaning one is much simpler than cleaning a fish.  Once you’ve got your license, know the regulations, and know how to catch it yourself, here’s how to clean a Florida lobster!

Step 1: Wring the Tail

This is much easier to do if you’ve had the lobster on ice for a bit so they are in a sleep-like state. Here, you’re simply separating the tail from its body. Hold the tail with one hand as close to the carapace as you can with your entire palm, and hold the carapace (upper body and head) in the other hand. Now firmly twist and pull, and the tail should easily separate. The head can be thrown away, as all of the meat of the Florida lobster is in

Two words sum up the fishing forecast this weekend: Full Moon. Stronger currents around big tides from the full moon turn on the feeding switch for most fish in South Florida, so you’d be doing yourself a disservice if you turn down fishing this weekend.

The wahoo bite has been well-documented to peak before and after a full moon, so local favorite Junkanoo Lures has barely been able to keep up with orders, and says you should see a lot of zigzag high-speed trolling going on offshore during the outgoing tide. Black/Purple and Black/Red color combos are recommended by Juno Bait Shop during lowlight periods, while Blue/White and Pink/White should be good when the sun is higher. Try for wahoo at 120-300’ in the morning and head out a little deeper

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) made it easier for both visitors and residents of Florida to complete the boating safety exam required for recreational boaters born on or after January 1st, 1988. Online providers are permitted to offer the temporary certificate exam 24-hours a day, seven days a week, and it can be accessed by tablet, laptops, and even smartphones.

Prior to this change, paper exams were the only option, and had to be completed and passed on the spot by rental vessel operators, while boat rental facilities had to purchase, administer, and mail in the valid hard copies. The newer convenient method can be completed online before a vacation or a trip to rent a boat.

The $3 online exam is 25 questions

On September 1st, the much awaited recreational snook season reopens in Palm Beach County for the duration of September, October, November, and midway through December.

South Florida snook is one of the most prized and most regulated fish due to a few good reasons. Snook not only puts up a powerful fight, but its mildly-firm white meat has an excellent flavor due to its diet of crustaceans and other small fish. Because of this, if snook fishing was left unmanaged, they would surely be a rare sight.

Buying or selling a snook in the state of Florida is illegal, so if you’re dying to feast on this sly silver fish, you’ll just have to catch it yourself!

The bag limit for harvesting snook is ONE per harvester per day, your catch must be between
