The Dolphin Awaits

The month of May is soon to come to an end, and you may be missing out on catching big dolphin! During May, you have greater chances of finding these fish without having to navigate too far offshore.
For clarification, we’re referring to the dolphin as in the fish versus the much-beloved mammal. These fish remain quite popular among anglers and they’re an exciting thrill to catch as they have a tendency to perform aerial acrobatics while they fight hard. They’re also easy to spot thanks to their brilliant colors of green, blue, and yellow.
Dolphin can be caught at just about any time of year but summer tends to be the period when they are most active. While no season exists on dolphin, do keep in mind that there is a daily bag limit of ten fish per person or sixty per boat. Dolphin must measure a minimum of twenty inches from the tip of its mouth to the fork of its tail.
Do you want to try your hand at catching dolphin this summer? Book a deep sea fishing trip today.

Place Your Bets on the 2019 Kentucky Derby

The Kentucky Derby remains an extremely popular and truly exciting horse racing tradition in the United States. Held in Louisville on the first Saturday during the month May, the country’s “Fastest Two Minutes in Sports” takes place every year and has delighted people of all ages since 1875. It also holds the honor of being the most attended stakes race in the country. The Kentucky Derby represents the first in what’s called the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing which includes the Preakness Stakes and then the Belmont Stakes race.

Colts and geldings race with 126 pounds while fillies lug 121 pounds. Over fifteen horses participate in the Derby, a number that’s significantly above the average for most horse races.

Blackfin Tuna Regulations May Be on the Way

The blackfin tuna is one of those fish that tends to be caught by accident. They can be found across all offshore waters of Florida, but the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has noticed some drop-off of catches in areas such as Miami and the Florida Keys. To tackle the situation, the FWC is hosting several workshops to receive angler feedback regarding the status of blackfin tuna. The results will then be evaluated by a governor-appointed commission most likely in July some time.
Until changes and regulations are implemented, blackfin tuna are currently regulated by Florida’s default recreational bag limit which allows a maximum of two fish per day, or 100 pounds, whichever is greater. There are currently no size limits in place. There are no federal regulations for blackfin tuna.
Of the “true tunas”, blackfin tuna are the smallest when compared to their massive cousins like the 900+ pound bluefin tuna. They share some similarities with skipjack tuna and the false albacore, which most Florida anglers may recognize as the bonito.
