During the mid 17th century, legend has it that pirates found refuge 450 miles off the port of Palm Beach on the Bahamian island of Mayaguana. After long ocean voyages, they dug a well in the middle of the island in search of drinkable water, and would fill their casks before setting sail once again.

Fast forward to present day, and Pirate’s Well in Lake Park toasts to this sentiment as a friendly refuge for Northern Palm Beach locals to quench their thirst after leisurely days on the water with family and friends. Since 2010, owner Larry Marble has welcomed locals and treated them like family.

The culture of this beloved local watering hole was threatened earlier this year when the Lake Park location had to close due to an accidental

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
