Helping Those Affected by Hurricane Michael

Hurricane Michael ripped through the Florida Panhandle last week, leaving behind a trail of destruction, especially in cities like Mexico Beach. As is the case with any major disaster, recovery efforts are well underway as thousands of people come together to help with providing supplies and food to residents that have been displaced.
Florida Governor Rick Scott has already activated the Florida Disaster Fund to provide assistance to victims of Hurricane Michael but there are other ways you can make a difference. The Red Cross is in critical need of blood donations following the storm. There is also a Hurricane Michael GoFundMe page set up with various campaigns you can donate to. Relief workers, as well as those that have been displaced by the storm, can use an Airbnb map to find hosts that are offering their homes for free.
We will also be doing what we can to help with Hurricane Michael recovery efforts. For every trip sailed on either of the two THERAPY-IV boats, we will be donating a percentage of the trip to the American Red Cross of Florida.

Enhance Your Deep Sea Fishing Experience

With saltwater fishing, there are tips worth keeping in mind that will come in handy for deep sea fishing amateurs as well as those that have years of experience under their belt. Use these the next time you’re heading out on the water.

Get creative with lures. When you’re fishing in saltwater, the visibility isn’t quite as clear as that of freshwater. Hence, you’ll want to use a lure that stands out and will grab the attention of whatever fish it is you’re attempting to catch. This might mean using a bright lure that a fish can easily spot.

Practice patience. Anyone who is experiencing deep sea fishing for the first time will be eager to experience their first catch. It’s worth keeping in mind that the ocean is massive and seemingly endless. If the fish don’t start biting right away, don’t get discouraged. Oftentimes it’ll happen when you least expect it, and the thrill of reeling it in is definitely worth the wait.
Maximize the experience with a deep sea fishing boat charter. By chartering a deep fishing boat, you’re practically guaranteeing yourself an experience that will be unforgettable. The fishing boat captain has years of experience in knowing where the best spots to fish are so you can increase the chances of snagging a catch. The guides also have firsthand experience with the best techniques to improve your fishing.

Reasons to Go Deep Sea Fishing

Have you been considering a deep sea fishing trip? If your goal is to do something out of the ordinary that will bring the family or your friends closer together, deep sea fishing is definitely the way to go. Let’s explore a couple of reasons why you should consider it.
The ocean itself. A typical vacation often involves dealing with long lines and crowded areas. The vast ocean is open to you, your loved ones, your friends, and it’s all about your group. You won’t be sharing the boat with any strangers.
Quality time. Speaking of loved ones, have you ever noticed how everyone often decides to go and do their own thing during a vacation? With a deep sea fishing trip, it’s all about togetherness, enjoying the company of those that are important to you while having lots of fun and catching some big game fish.
Catch your food. Are you a pescetarian or someone that likes the taste of seafood? There is a possibility of catching fish you can actually eat and perhaps even take home. There is a certain sense of pride and satisfaction in knowing that the food you’re consuming also happens to be one that you caught yourself.

Preparing for Your Deep Sea Fishing Trip

So you’ve booked your first deep sea fishing trip and you’re excited to try this one of a kind experience. While it is indeed a lot of fun, it also requires a bit of preparation to maximize your enjoyment.
For starters, it’s important to get some restful shut-eye the night before you venture off into the seas of South Florida. Between the waves of the ocean and the sound of the fishing boat engine, failing to get a good night’s sleep could mean you’ll doze off during the trip. While there is little chance of dozing off when you’re in the middle of reeling in a large catch, you still want to stay awake in case any sea dwellers pass by the boat when you aren’t fishing.
Speaking of the waves of the ocean, you may wish to bring along something like the over the counter Dramamine just in case you’re the type who tends to get easily seasick or someone who has never been on a fishing trip. In fact, it may be a good idea to take some before you head off on the trip so that it takes effect while you’re on the boat. Even if you’ve never had an issue with seasickness, it’s worth having some on hand.

How Does Freshwater and Deep Sea Fishing Differ?

There is the fishing you typically see on a quiet body of water and then there is deep sea fishing which is a completely different experience. If you’ve tried freshwater fishing but haven’t gone deep sea fishing, you’re missing out on a major thrill!
One of the biggest differences with deep sea fishing is the fish you’ll catch. With deep sea fishing, you can look forward to catching some major sea dwellers, such as the marlin for sailfish or even the marlin. Going toe-to-toe trying to reel in these fish is definitely a stark contrast from the smaller fish varieties found in fresh water.
For those of you planning on going deep sea fishing, your best bet is to schedule a chartered trip. These trips have plenty of perks and allow you to fish in spots where fish activity is the best. Plus, you’ll have a boat and every person in your party that’s participating will have their gear and necessary equipment to start reeling in a major catch. There is no need to worry about making sure you have everything you need as it’s already provided for you, including the fishing licenses.

Helping Those Affected by Hurricane Florence

Hurricane Florence has come and gone, leaving behind a series of floods, taking more than fifteen lives, and displacing numerous people that have to be rescued from their home or their vehicles.
