Swordfishing has increased in popularity ten-fold in the past couple of years, mainly because of the recent development of daytime swordfishing (it used to primarily be done at night) and accessibility of electric reels. If you love fishing, I'm sure a swordfish is on your bucket list. The good news is, Palm Beach County residents and visitors alike have plenty access to fishing charters. Whether swordfishing is something to cross off of your bucketlist, or you want to learn how to rig and do it yourself, below is a list of friendly local captains who can help your dreams come true.

With more than 3 million people of all ages participating, “Sporting Clays” is now one of the fastest growing sports in America.

Families are participating in the sport because it provides wholesome family fun, and it gives you hours of excitement in the fresh air.

Described as “Golf with a Shotgun,” courses are designed to simulate field shooting, and competitors are challenged to a wide variety of targets that duplicate the escape tactics of wild game. Clays “flush” like quail, hop like rabbits, and fly across the sky as fast as the swiftest waterfowl.

Tournaments draw competitors to South Florida from all over the world, and recently, many avid shooters have been moving to South Florida so they can enjoy this outdoor sport year-round in the…

Leaving the house without my dog is probably the most guilt-inducing part of my day. When she realizes I’m leaving, she flashes those sad puppy dog eyes hoping I change my mind. It’s the worst! The good news is, we live in a place where most people love dogs, and besides dog-friendly restaurants and bars, Palm Beach County has a few dog-friendly beaches and sandbars! It may be easy to bring them along, but besides obeying posted rules in the area, dogs do need a little special attention in order to make sure you both have tons of comfortable fun in the sun!

Here are a few tips for caring for your dog at the beach:

  1. Before heading outside, remember that dogs’ skin sunburns just like humans do. Anywhere they have skin exposed, short hair, white…

If you’re from the Jupiter area, you probably have many childhood memories splashing around the shallow lagoon of DuBois Park. Some of the best family time of my childhood was spent searching for crabs, attempting to catch small fish with a toy net in the mangroves, and eating grilled hotdogs on the warm sand.

While the unique estuary is a joy to explore, there is also a rich history behind DuBois Park. At the top of the “Indian mound”, a large pile of mollusk shells built by indigenous Native Americans, in the center of the park is a house made of Florida pine that was once home to early Florida pioneers, Harry and Susan DuBois. Harry bought 18 acres south of the Jupiter Inlet that he had long admired for its ridge of Indian shell mound, and he needed…

If you’re from Florida, you already know, but if you’re new to the area, a large part of experiencing everything Florida has to offer is by eating what the natives eat- FISH! Saving the best for last, here are the top 10 best fish to eat in Florida!

10. Kingfish

Some may wonder why Kingfish even made this list, but the truth is that South Florida consumes a ridiculous amount of it. Also known as king mackerel, Kingfish is not known as one of the best fish to eat in Florida on its own merit. It tastes quite “gamey” because of its high oil content. However, commercial kingfishing is a booming industry in South Florida for a big reason: smoked fish dip. Just about every restaurant in South Florida carries this delectable appetizer, which usually…
