Are You Going Deep Sea Fishing? Here’s What to Wear

South Florida isn’t known for its cool weather, but if you're heading out for a fishing charter in the morning, there is the rare chance the climate may be on the cool side. On the other hand, on the way to the docks, you may already notice how muggy it is. Since there is the possibility the weather may be unpredictable, it might be a good idea to dress in layers. Again, the weather will most likely remain warm during your Miami Beach fishing trip, but at least this way you can remove or add clothing depending on how you feel.
On particularly sunny days, protective headgear can help. In other words, consider wearing a hat. Besides sunburn, too much exposure to the rays of the sun on your head may lead to headaches or other heat-related issues. On that note, sunglasses are great for protecting your eyes from UV rays as well as the sometimes blinding reflections of the sun against the water.
Finally, don’t forget the sunscreen! It’s still possible to get burned even if the day is cloudy. A product with an SPF of at least 30 should be enough.

The Exhilaration of Barracuda Fishing

For a thrilling time out on the ocean, the barracuda is an aggressively vicious fish known for putting up a strong fight. If you can’t spend an entire day out on the ocean, these fish present a quicker albeit highly exhilarating fishing experience.
Barracudas prefer soft swimbaits. Hence, you want to make sure you have the right lure when you’re trying to catch one. Lures that look like wiggling tails are quite popular so it’s one place to start if you want to increase your odds of a catch.
You can also stick to tradition and go for plastic worms another barracuda favorite provided they’re firm. You may wish to go with orange or pink worms. Worms are also great in that there is less of a chance of spooking the fish and causing them to disperse.
An artificial tube lure is a do-it-yourself option worth considering. There are plenty of fishing enthusiasts that believe this lure works effectively. Barracudas are fond of colors like purple, pink and orange.

Changes in Store for Art Basel Miami Beach

With October almost over, the colors and creativity of Art Basel Miami Beach is looming. For those unfamiliar with this popular event, it is an international art fair held every year right here in the barrier island, Hong Kong, and Basel, Switzerland. It began in 1970 as a collaborative effort between Ernst Beyeler, Trudl Bruckner and Balz Hilt intended to showcase work by up and coming contemporary artists while uniting art aficionados, galleries, and collectors.
In 2002, Art Basel expanded to Miami and this year promises to be the best one yet. There will be a greater focus on Latin American and U.S. exhibitions, with over half of the 250+ exhibitors based in the two continents. Additionally, 2019 Art Basel will feature an all-new section focused on large-scale works of art.
Should you wish to attend Art Basel. Tickets $65 per person or $45 for seniors and students attending a single day. Four day tickets are also available for $145. Tickets are available for purchase online or you can wait until opening day (December 5th) and get them at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

Enjoy Food for a Good Cause This Week

While you patiently await the return of the South Beach Wine and Food Festival next year, a couple of food-related events are happening around Miami to get you into the “foodie” mood as 2020 gets closer. Let’s explore two of them.
On Wednesday at 7 pm, the Lincoln Eatery food hall in South Beach will host its Night at the Market, welcoming Aaron Sanchez of the Food Network. The event serves as a culinary fundraiser with proceeds going towards fighting Parkinson’s. Guests can try bites from some of the best chefs in the country like John Mooney, Stephan Pyles, Sanchez himself, and Miami’s Michael Schwartz. Drinks will be provided by Cocktails at the Lincoln Eatery and you’ll also find food courtesy of restaurants like TYO Sushi, Manhattan Paletas, and more.
Rachael Ray is one of the biggest names in food and if you have yet to try one of her recipes, you can do so by trying her virtual restaurant appropriately called Rachael Ray to Go. The way it works is you place an order through Uber Eats and the food is prepared by the delivery-only service called Reef Kitchens. Each order comes with a thank-you note, a sweet treat, and you may also receive a complimentary copy of Rachael Ray 50: Memories and Meals From a Sweet and Savory Life, her new book.

The Return of Joe’s Stone Crab

South Florida always has exciting seasons but one of them happens to be stone crab season. If you’ve spent any time in Miami Beach, there is arguably no better place to celebrate it than Joe’s Stone Crab. This classic Miami Beach icon will open its doors tomorrow to celebrate its 106th season at 5 pm sharp.

The name of Joe’s Stone Crab comes from Joe Weiss and it boasts a rich history going back to 1913. Weiss is from Hungary and lived in New York before moving to Miami Beach with the hopes of seeking some asthma relief. Joe and his wife would go on to open a shack selling seafood which they opened on Collins Avenue. Once an ichthyologist became aware of the many stone crabs in the area, he informed Joe Weiss, asking whether these stone crabs were edible.

Nowadays, Joe’s Stone Crab is well-known for the people it attracts, including actors, politicians, and athletes. Despite becoming one of Miami Beach’s most famous restaurants, it is still a family-owned and operated restaurant. One thing you should know is that the restaurant does not accept reservations. If you wish to dine there, it strongly encouraged that you arrive early or there will likely be a wait of several hours.
