A New Rail May Be in the Works

Have you ever wished there more ways to get to and from Miami Beach and the downtown area than the Julia Tuttle, MacArthur, and the Venetian? If so, you may be interested in a new form of transportation being evaluated today by the Miami Dade County Commission.
A proposal dubbed the Beach Connector is being evaluated which would consist of a rail connecting downtown and Miami Beach. The project has been floating around in some form for more than two decades but has yet to be approved. As tourism continues to break records and younger generations rely less on driving, another way to get around from South Florida’s ultra popular barrier island could prove useful in easing Florida’s traffic infrastructure. Furthermore, it could go a tremendously long way in easing the woes many locals and tourists face when trying to find parking on the beach, which is easier said than done on weekends and holidays.
There is still a long way to go before the Beach Connector will clear all of the hurdles necessary for it to become reality. Do you think it would ease the connection between Miami and the beach?

Better Fishing with Polarized Sunglasses

During a deep sea fishing trip, your eyes need protection from the blinding rays of the sun. The glare from the rays as they reflect off of the surface of the water can damage your vision or make it harder to spot fish and reel them in.
When you’re figuring out which sunglasses are ideal for you you may wish to consider what kind of fish you intend to catch, such as grouper or mackerel, for instance. Also, take the time to check out the color of the lens and the lens material. With polarized sunglasses, for example, they feature a special layer that can block the majority of refracted sunlight. With these lenses, rays reflecting off of the surface of the water won’t cause massive glare as you’re looking into the ocean to spot a catch or admiring the natural vistas. Blue lenses are a safe bet for deep sea fishing. A blue outer lens color combined with an inner gray lens will suit most anglers. The lens mirroring takes care of the glare.
Speaking of fishing sunglasses, resist the urge to buy them online. Polarized sunglasses have to be comfortable and fit the face correctly. You don’t want glare leaking into your field of view, which defeats the purpose of having bought polarized glasses. The better the sunglasses accommodate the face, the better your vision will be. As a result, you may find it’s not as difficult to tackle big game fish.

A Brief Glimpse into Biscayne Bay

When you want to enjoy some inshore fishing, Biscayne Bay in Miami is worthy of your time. Complemented by the glitz and glam of Miami and Miami Beach, this gorgeous bay provides world-class fishing and has been doing so for decades.
Biscayne Bay runs from North Miami all the way to Key Largo and is comprised of nearly 430 square miles of water, close to the size of the city of San Antonio! More than 250 acres of the bay is protected by the Biscayne National Park, which was established back in the 1980s.
Even as South Florida undergoes changes and evolves, Biscayne Bay is home to many different gamefish that have earned a degree of popularity, including bonefish, tarpon, snapper, mackerel, sharks and even some grouper here and there. Because of the richly broad array of fish, anglers may find it tricky to concentrate their efforts on a certain species.
Ready to explore Biscayne Bay? Book your fishing boat trip on the THERAPY-IV today.

Mother Nature’s Effect on Fishing

When it comes to advice, fishing is one of those topics where everyone is ready and willing to provide an exhaustive amount of advice. Whether it’s what you should be wearing, where the best spots to fish are, information regarding fishing is aplenty. For this blog, we’re going to take a closer look at the weather.

Let’s use something like the wind, for instance. The wind will push water and surface food away from the shore, depending on the strength. Certain fish types like baitfish will swim along with the movement of the food, which means it may be harder to catch the fish due to the windy conditions and the bait not staying “staying still”.

Fish are highly sensitive to the smallest changes in the weather. You may notice them feeding voraciously a few hours prior to the arrival of a cold front. The feeding will in most cases slow down once a storm has come and gone. After a cold front, fish activity may be low.

The idea of getting drenched may not sound appealing but fishing during the rain can reap great rewards. The rain assists with breaking up the view that the fish have through the surface of the water, which means potentially greater odds of a catch.

Fishing Law Aims to Protect Sharks


Fun fact: Did you know that there are over 500 different species of shark around the world? A number of these species have laws in place intended to protect them, which means anyone fishing for them is required to release them back into the ocean if caught. Here in Florida, the state is also looking to ramp up its efforts to protect these sea dwellers with a recent law implemented last month.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) must grant shore anglers a special permit, which includes becoming familiar with the shark’s habits and learning more about it via an online shark-fishing education course. The law is intended as much to protect the sharks as it is to protect humans. It prohibits anglers from bringing the sharks near the shore, requiring them to release the shark immediately after catching.
Though the FWC shark law is aimed largely at shore fishing, it also includes restrictions for those planning on fishing from bridges, piers, or jetties. Young anglers below the age of sixteen do not have to receive a permit, but they are still required to take the education course or be accompanied by an adult who already has the shore-based license.
