Nestled between Jupiter and Stuart, the city of Hobe Sound offers a wide array of beautiful beaches, parks, and championship-caliber golf courses.

Marine life, such as dolphins and manatees, are commonplace, with the area embracing wildlife at Jonathan Dickinson State Park, spanning 11,000 acres and housing over 140 species of birds.

With the mullet run being the highlight of the past couple of weeks, most fishing has been geared toward snook, large tarpon, and amberjack chasing schools through inlets, inshore, on the beach, and at the Juno Pier. Your trustiest bait is live mullet itself, which can be found during low light periods of the day away from boat traffic. If you’re looking for a little more fun in exchange for less reliability, using top water plugs creates some exciting action as snook will strike these much harder, sometimes becoming airborne exploding on the surface.

Reef anglers should be catching some kingfish and snapper this time of year, but this week has…

Jonathan Dickinson State Park is a historic site located in Martin County between Hobe Sound and Tequesta, and is the largest state park in southeast Florida. The park includes the Elsa Kimbell Environmental Education and Research Center and a variety of natural habitats. The Loxahatchee River, which runs through the park, was the first river in Florida designated as a National Wild and Scenic River.

 

History:

The park is named after Jonathan Dickinson, a Quaker merchant who was shipwrecked in 1696, with his family and others, on the Florida coast near the present-day park. He wrote a journal describing their encounters with local tribes, and their journey up the coast to St. Augustine.

Pictured: Snook Caught by Michael O'Connor

The weekend we’ve all been waiting for is finally here: the first weekend of snook season! Oh yeah, and it also happens to be Labor Day weekend. Not only do you have three full days to take home your snook-a-day bag limit, but you also have the notion of the “hard workers holiday” to validate your much-needed R&R time.

The name of the game is snook this weekend, but make sure you know the regulations and have your permit, because FWC will surely be out in full force. While the mullet run hasn’t completely caught fire yet, catch and release snook fishing has been plentiful lately, with the Palm Beach Inlet, Juno Pier, Jupiter Inlet, and Loxahatchee River churning with keepers ready to be your catch of…

A lively little speakeasy on the Singer Island has quite a backstory. As the legend goes, McCoy was a moonshiner here in South Florida during the times of Prohibition.  He had a hidden speakeasy and a reputation for the best moonshine. People from all walks of life came to indulge in his spirits. To hide from authorities, McCoy had livestock and goats on his land.  The only problem was that the goats would knock over the stills and drink the moonshine.  Guests of the speakeasy loved to watch the drunken goats and relish the evening.

Two Drunken Goats Beach Cantina,  2509 Ocean Avenue, Singer Island, is located in the outdoor Ocean Mall on the municipal beach in Riviera Beach a/k/a Singer Island.  It is a lively place to grab breakfast, lunch,…

 I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.  Have you ever wondered when did ice cream become bad, fattening and taboo?  It is usually made from dairy products, such as milk and cream, and often combined with fruits or other ingredients and flavors. Doesn’t sound sinister.  It’s time to revisit summer days of our youth and dive into a guiltfree, delicious ice cream cone.  

Before the development of modern refrigeration,I ice cream was a luxury reserved for special occasions.  With South Florida’s sunny days and tropical climate, it is typical to spend a day out on the salty beaches. Everyday is the Palm Beaches is a special occasion.  There is nothing more enjoyable than to cool down with an ice-cold confection occasionally. An ice-cream cone…
