Rest and Relaxation

Have you ever been stressed and needed to relax? You should try fishing,It's fun and helps with your health. When you go fishing you go away from all the worries in life. Whether it be on land or by boat, you breathe in cool and clean air while enjoying the scenery of the outdoor life. There is nothing better than the feeling you get of a cool breeze passing over you while taking a nap as you're waiting for a tug on your line ready for your first catch.
Then there is the sound of the water that has a relaxing effect to it. It’s like the ocean noise that babies listen to right before going to bed so they can go to sleep. That's the sound you hear when you're out there fishing, getting away from it all. Nothing is better than taking a nap at the sound of a wave.
Lets not forget the importance of a friend when you go fishing. Who doesn't enjoy the company of someone you care about while swapping stories about life as you wait on fish to bite. However, there are some that love to sit alone and enjoy the peace and quiet that comes from the serene waters. While enjoying the company of a friend, their presence may keep you calm and relaxed while you talk about anything and everything.

The Sharks to Fish for in Miami

If you’ve ever wanted to catch a shark, then you should know which sharks live around Miami. There are multiple different kinds, but all of them are hard to fish for and are often highly prized. Make sure you know your shark breeds before you go out to catch one. And be careful, too!
Blacktip sharks are often found in the Gulf Stream offshore of Miami and Miami Beach. They can also be found in shallower waters. These sharks put up a big fight, so be prepared. This shark fights hard when it gets hooked, and if they’re near the surface, they’ll jump and spin out of the water. The sight is extraordinary.
Mako sharks are also found offshore near the Gulf Stream. They’re not common in South Florida, and people often end up catching them when they meant to catch other sharks. They’re also big fighters, and people consider them beautiful trophy fish. Amazingly, they can grow much larger than 500 pounds.
The hammerhead shark is a very recognizable shark, thanks to the unique shape of its head. They can be found over coral reefs and deep in the Gulf Stream. Generally, smaller hammerheads are caught in the summer and larger ones are caught in the winter and spring. Their weight usually ranges from 50 pounds to 250 pounds, but they can grow much bigger than that. The biggest hammerhead ever caught on the Therapy IV weighed 1,024 pounds.
Shark fishing can be an exhilarating experience. If you come out of it successful, then you’ll have a great trophy fish and a wonderful story to tell.

For those of you that are anywhere near the Bayshore neighborhood, Anatomy on 20th Street serves as a gym as well as a medical spa. It also holds the distinction of being the highest rated Miami Beach fitness facility on the popular website Yelp. Besides fitness equipment, there are also group exercise classes, thermotherapy, and personal training.
South Beach’s Equinox is another highly rated favorite. It has a sports club, a gym, cycling studio, yoga, Pilates, and much more. Besides the breadth of features, Equinox also has the advantage of being within walking distance of the sunny beach. Enjoy a hearty workout and then cool off in the ocean!
Also in South Beach is Exhale on Collins Avenue, which has several positive reviews. The facility aims to create a balance between the mind and body by offering full body fitness classes plus massages, acupuncture, and even facials.

Lobster Season Is About to Commence

Starting getting your lobster gear ready, ladies and gentlemen! On the 25th, divers and fellow lobster aficionados will be taking a splash in the water to participate in South Florida’s annual two-lobster mini-season. The event begins at the stroke of midnight and will continue until midnight on the 26th, followed by the regular recreational and commercial season which kicks off August 6th.
Florida is home to a trio of lobster varieties, but most fishermen tend to go for the Florida spiny lobster, which also goes by the name of the Caribbean spiny lobster. This lobster is typically found in the Atlantic Ocean’s tropical and subtropical waters as well as in the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. It is generally caught during the evening as lobsters prefer to spend the daylight hours in the protection of their dens as a means of avoiding predators.
There are a few rules to be aware of if you’re planning on participating in the two-day sport lobster season. For example, their carapace must meet a certain minimum length and it is prohibited to take any females that are bearing eggs. You can read all of the rules at the following link: http://myfwc.com/fishing/saltwater/recreational/lobster/.

Relive the Thrill of ‘Jaws’ on the Water

Back in 1975, a young man in his late twenties would go on to direct a movie that would singlehandedly scare tons of people from ever going back into the ocean. That director is Steven Spielberg and the film was titled Jaws. Based on the novel of the same name released a year prior, Jaws told the story of a massive great white shark terrorizing a local resort town.
Jaws went on to become the then highest grossing film of all time and is considered one of the greatest films ever made. While it may seem tame by today’s standards, the film cemented its place in history as one of the greatest films ever made and it was even selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the United States National Film Registry. Tons of people remember the iconically terrifying opening scene.
If you have yet to see Jaws or are a fan of the film, you’ll be able to watch it on the water on the 28 and 29th of this month at Oleta River State Park in North Miami Beach. The film will be shown on a large inflatable screen and you’ll be able to watch it on an inflatable tube or on the beach in case you want to stay dry. Admission is only $15.

Fishing, Art Deco, and More in Miami

When it comes to the best of the city, Thrillist remains one of the top go-to sources in telling readers all about the best food, drink, entertainment, and travel destinations. With its guides dedicated to several cities (including Miami), it’s a great source to find out what to do.
Late last month, Thrillist took a closer look at some of the coolest adventures to do in Miami at dusk. Among these adventures is the new and improved Newport Fishing Pier, which now extends more than 750 feet into the ocean and is open at all hours of the day for visitors to walk across for just $2. If you’re looking to fish off of the pier, it’s only $5.
Some of the other highlights include a walking tour of Miami Beach’s Art Desco district, having a drink at the Juvia Rooftop Bar on Lincoln Road, or participating in a full moon drum circle at 79th Street and Collins Avenue.
If you need something to do during the day, don’t forget you can always book your deep sea fishing trip for a fun, adrenaline-filled experience catching a variety of fish on the THERAPY-IV with your friends, family, or even your coworkers.
