The results are in; Das Beer Garden offers the most diverse variety of craft beer in Palm Beach County.

America has seen an enormous boom in the craft beer market, with beer enthusiasts demanding more complex and tantalizing varieties than the previously dominant light lagers. As recently as 2012, the duopoly of Anheuser-Busch InBev and MillerCoors controlled nearly 90 percent of beer production.

In the last decade, independent breweries have expanded by a factor of six, and while Americans are actually drinking less beer than they did in the 2000s, they’re often opting for a superior product, like one of the 100+ beers available daily at Das Beer Garden in Jupiter’s Downtown Abacoa.

Craft breweries have focused on tastes that were

The Florida “cold snap” this weekend has lows in the 60’s rolling through, producing ideal conditions for sailfish cruising through. Kitefish with goggle eyes in 120-250’ of water, and after your first sail, target a tighter area around that depth. A few dolphin are still in the equation off Palm Beach Inlet, but no strong numbers seem to be showing up.

The snapper bite has been solid lately, with large muttons and yellowtail congregating on the reef. Live ballyhoo, sardines, or midsized pinfish work great.

Inshore fishing has slowed down quite a bit, with Snook and redfish becoming finicky to the tide. You’ll have to feel out each spot for what tide works best, and keep a close eye on it once you figure it out.

The Juno Beach pier has been

If you want to go boating in South Florida, there are some things you’re going to need. The first, of course, is a boating license. According to the FWC: In order to operate a motorboat of ten (10) horsepower or greater, Florida law requires anyone who was born on or after Jan. 1, 1988 to successfully complete an approved boating safety course and obtain a Boating Safety Education Identification Card issued by the FWC.

Alright, so you got your license. There are still some things you need to have on-board your boat before you set sail. In Florida the following minimum boat safety equipment is required on all Class A recreational boats (less than 16 feet in length), canoes and kayaks:

- One Coast Guard-approved Type I, II or III Personal

The bite was scarce last weekend, but it seems to have been picking up this week due to the full moon. A few wahoo are starting to show up from the full moon and mild cold front, especially closer to the Bahamas. Around here, 150-400’ is where wahoo have hooked up along with blackfin tuna. Troll with small feathers during lowlight for tuna, and use the small ones to catch wahoo. Another option is to pick up a local favorite Junkanoo Lure and high speed troll in a zig-zag pattern. Sailfish are also coming out of the woodwork, and kite fishing with hearty live baits like goggle-eyes or blue runners is your best bet.

Kingfish and large mutton snapper have been eating sardines near 120 – 200’, and yellowtail snapper has been showing up in strong

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

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
