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

It would take hours to tell of the rich history of Palm Beach County, but here you can quickly read some cool facts that may interest both new and longtime residents:

Ocean & Beaches

The county has 47 miles of pristine Atlantic coastline with a close proximity to the Gulf Stream which gives the ocean a nice refreshing temperature year-round. A diver's dream, there are 20 natural reefs to explore near the shoreline plus dozens of artificial reefs and shipwrecks. The Atlantic coast is nicknamed the Gold Coast because of shipwrecks dating back to the 1800s which still lures treasure hunters in search of gold from sunken Spanish galleons. North Palm Beaches are important sea turtle nesting sites with anywhere from 14-17,000 nests counted every

A much-needed reservoir is one step closer to construction with the Army Corps of Engineers and White House Office of Management and Budgeting approving the $1.4 billion project to limit toxic discharges from Lake Okeechobee. After decades of destruction to Florida waterways, crucial restoration plans are moving forward with the green light from congress.

Water from Lake Okeechobee, which is currently 90 percent covered in cyanobacteria according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, gets pumped east and west into the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee Rivers nearly every day during the rainy season when the one trillion-gallon lake can’t hold anymore. The bacteria infested water then travels through these rivers picking up runoff from

Pictured: Wahoo caught by Jupiter locals Mike O'Connor and Christian Mignano

This week in Palm Beach County we’ve had some fishing reports of wahoo in the bite in the 150’-350’ range offshore Palm Beach, Juno Beach, and Jupiter. It’s a scorcher out there at a forecasted high of 90 degrees throughout the weekend with some hot spots feeling as high as 100 degrees, so don’t forget to pack plenty of water, ice, sunscreen, and I hope you have a T-top for a little shade. The heat also warms up the water, so if you’re live baiting for kings along the ledge, be sure to let your bait run deeper than normal in the column to seek cooler waters.

The bonita have been impossible to avoid lately, but if all you’re looking for is a little bit of action or to

South Florida is known for its lush tropical environment. Take your garden design to the opposite side of maintenance.  Reduce watering, fertilizing and consider installing a dry garden? How about a distinctive theme that looks great during all seasons? The climate in Palm Beach County can be thought-provoking when trying to garden.  Maybe you are a “green thumb” gardener or a weekend garden warrior fitting it in when you can, succulents are an easy fit.  

Succulents can survive strong winds, occasionally cold weather, drought, heat and poor soil. Besides having the ability to grow under almost any condition, agaves, yuccas and succulents all give your gardens such a variety of contemporary, architectural shapes. Think of raised gardens that use

The Strawberry Moon will light up the evening skies Thursday, June 28, when it reaches its full moon phase. The June moon is the seventh full moon to rise of 13 full moon phases., The Strawberry Moon will not turn a deep red or pink color on Thursday night despite its name.  So why exactly is the June full moon known as the Strawberry Moon you ask?

The June Full Moon is called the Full Strawberry Moon. The Strawberry Moon is the most colorful moon of the year.  It is also particularly special because it will arrive during Saturn at opposition, which means Saturn will be at its closest to the Earth and brightest ever for this year.  In simple terms, describes the point at which the Earth sits exactly between the planet and the sun. It will rise

Hurricane season has arrived once again and it's time to get prepared. With a "slightly above average" season forecasted by the National Weather Service for 2018, the state of Florida is providing an extended tax holiday June 1st-7th for preparations.

This week, you can purchase supplies such as generators, gas, batteries and tarps without paying state or local taxes. It's a good idea to get supplies now as opposed to later, when things get hectic and goods run out, as seen with Hurricane Irma last year. The state of Florida hadn't had a direct hit in over a decade until Hurricanes Hermine and Irma in 2016 and 2017, which left people scurrying for water, gas, etc. 

"Now, after being hit by Irma and everything that happened last year, people are

While the weather is cool in sunny, Palm Beach County there is one place you absolutely have to visit; the Manatee Lagoon in Riviera Beach. Manatees are a beloved native species to Florida and while the Intracoastal and ocean waters cool down they flock to the warm run off water that comes from the power plant next to the Manatee Lagoon. The warm water comes from Florida Power and Light Company’s Next Generation Clean Energy Center, making for a nice place for hundreds of manatees to warm up and an even better place for locals to get up close and personal with them. 

Features of the Manatee Lagoon: 

The new Manatee Lagoon building and café overlooks the warm waters of Palm Beach where with manatees like to stay during colder months. Each year,

Over the next two nights starwatchers can see one of the most spectacular meteor showers in plain sight from Jupiter. The Geminids meteor shower has been in full force this week but the next two nights is when it will be at its peak.  

So, what exactly are the Geminids? The Geminids meteor shower is a unique celestial occurrence that happens when the Earth’s path encounters an asteroid. Most meteor showers come from comets, which give off a beautiful display of bright heads of the comets raining down with a tail of dust, ice and rock. But with the Geminids meteor shower coming from an asteroid, those of us watching from earth will see what looks like a fireworks display in the sky. 

 Stargazers have the opportunity to see up to 120 meteors per hour
