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.

The Day of 9/11

On September 11, 2001, the United States of America was attacked by terrorists. They hijacked four planes two of which crashed into the Twin Towers at the World Trade Center in New York City. Another plane crashed into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia and the last plane crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Passengers on the plane fought the terrorists trying to prevent the planes from crashing. Around 3,000 people were killed that day and many more trying to save the people trapped in the buildings.
There were nineteen terrorists in the four planes that day, all of whom were from the Middle East. The name of the terrorist group was Al Qaeda led by Osama bin Laden.
After the devastating attack on the U.S., the United States and its allies went to war in Afghanistan. The Taliban were protecting Osama bin Laden and since 2001 many members of Al Qaeda have been captured or killed. On May 1, 2011, Osama bin Laden was killed in Pakistan.
The country went through some changes after the attack, they tightened security at airports, in public buildings, and the Department of Homeland Security was created to help protect the nation from terrorism.

The Unique Qualities of the Hammerhead

In terms of looks, the hammerhead shark is definitely one of those sea dwellers you can easily make out among the ocean’s vast assortment of life, largely because of its uniquely-shaped head, which is officially called a “cephalofoil”. Hammerheads can be found swimming in the seas in various parts of the world where warm water exists.
The size of a hammerhead shark typically varies from as small as three feet in length or just over nineteen feet. The shark’s belly is white, which mean the shark is harder to detect when viewed from the bottom. This trait provides the hammerhead an advantage when hunting prey. In regards to prey, hammerhead sharks generally stick to swimming about in large schools during the daylight hours. It isn’t until night falls that it decides to break from the school and embark on a solo hunting trip. Octopus, stingrays, other sharks, and squid are a few examples of the type of sea life the hammerhead likes to incorporate into its diet.
The hammerhead’s cephalofoil provides some distinct visual enhancements. Because of the location of the eyes, the hammerhead has the ability to view what is above and below it at all times. The cephalofoil also serves a useful purpose in helping the hammerhead pin down prey such as stingrays.

Remembering John McCain

The country continues to mourn the loss of Senator John McCain who passed away last Saturday at the age of 81 after suffering from brain cancer. The American politician and former military officer served as a Navy fighter pilot during the Vietnam War. He was held as a prisoner for five years before being released in 1973. McCain ran for president in 2008 as the Republican candidate against Democrat Barack Obama who would go on to win the election.
Born at Coco Solo Naval Air Station on August 29, 1936, John Sidney McCain III was the second of three children born to John S. McCain Jr. and his wife Roberta. When McCain was born, the family was stationed at the American controlled Panama Canal Zone. With a naval officer father as well as a four-star admiral paternal grandfather, John McCain would go on to follow in their footsteps, volunteering for combat duty during the Vietnam War.
It wasn’t until the late 1970s that John McCain became involved in politics after being assigned as the Navy’s liaison to the United States Senate. By the early 1980s, he retired from the Navy and was elected to political office, winning a House of Representatives seat. In 1986, McCain was elected to the U.S. Senate. Despite his conservative views, McCain would develop a reputation for being unafraid to challenge Republican orthodoxy.
John McCain had seven children, including author and The View co-host Meghan McCain.

Own a Classic Piece of Miami Beach

Does the thought of owning a piece of Miami Beach sound appealing to you? Earlier this week, the city recently put up six of its easily recognizable lifeguard stations for auction. In previous years, these stations have fetched prices as low as $100 or as much as $3,000+.
If you’ve spent a significant amount of time in Miami Beach, the iconic look of the lifeguard station dating back to the 1980s will be quite familiar. The stations include the stairs plus the small deck. If you have the space for it, they certainly make for an interesting piece of eye-catching art that is sure to turn into a conversation piece. You can also get creative about what you wish to do them. Turn them into a bar, make a sprawling dog house or perhaps a tree house for the kids.
So, why is Miami Beach auctioning off its iconic stations? It’s to make room for newer ones that will be better equipped to handle the elements. These stations will have improved weather resistance thanks to the use of aluminum hardware and they will also include impact windows.
If you’re interested in owning a lifeguard station, visit www.publicsurplus.com before the 28th and search for “City of Miami Beach” sans quotes. Do keep in mind that you will be responsible for picking up and transporting the station(s) to their new home.

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.

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.

Help Make a Difference at the Miami Physicians Fishing Tournament

Fishing is already a great way to pass the time, but fishing for a cause is even better. In the Miami Physicians Fishing Tournament, you’ll get to fish for interesting fish in the Florida Keys while helping vulnerable teens and children. Money from the fishing tournament goes to the Miami Bridge, which is Miami Dade’s only 24-hour emergency shelter for kids ages 10-17.
The Miami Physicians Fishing Tournament is the oldest fishing tournament in South Florida, and it helps bring together physicians, leaders, and professionals across South Florida for a weekend of fun and fish. You don’t have to be a physician to fish, however. There will be over 300 guests showing up too. This year, the event is being hosted at the Ocean Reef Club at Key Largo, from Thursday, July 19th to Sunday, July 22.
The tournament will definitely be a fun time, and it will also be for a great cause. The Miami Bridge tries to help kids who are susceptible to falling into a life of crime and victimization. The Bridge offers lots of free services like sheltering kids, family counseling and reunifying families. They’ve helped over 600 kids since 1985.
Head over to the Miami Physicians Fishing Tournament for a great weekend and a chance to help kids.

Miami’s Fourth of July Festivities

The Fourth of July falls on a Wednesday this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still celebrate the Independence Day festivities. As you might expect, Miami will be hosting plenty of events themed around America’s big day.
We’ll begin with the Fire on the Fourth festival right here in Miami Beach. The festivities begin bright and early at 9 am with complimentary yoga before transitioning into a celebratory atmosphere of live music, food trucks, and plenty of fireworks. Make sure to get there early and find a nice spot!
If 9 am sounds too early, Star-Spangled Awesome at the Wharf begins at noon by the Miami River. Music will be provided courtesy of a DJ and you can also look forward to bites by local names like Garcia’s Seafood, Spris Pizza, Mojo Donuts, and more. Purchase a whiskey shot and you’ll receive a complimentary beer you can hold onto while you sip and watch the fireworks after sundown.
One of the most impressive fireworks displays will likely be in Bayfront Park during America’s Birthday Bash celebration. Food, music, activities the kids can enjoy, and a beer garden are all part of the fun.

Where to Catch Blackfin Tuna

If you want to fish for Blackfin tuna, then we know the perfect place to go. The Florida Keys is brimming with Blackfin tuna. These fish are delicious, and they can be eaten with sushi or made into mouthwatering steaks. And best of all, catching Blackfin tuna can be very simple.
There are three ‘humps’ in the Florida Keys, which are underwater sea mounts that attract fish. Most fishermen fish for Blackfin tuna here. Once you’re arrived at one of the humps, then you can start fishing. Try pulling a skirted lure, swimming plug, or a feather behind your boat to entice the tuna to bite. This might get you a 5-10 pound tuna.
You can also use live bait like pilchards, which are also known as sardines. Live bait should be fished down 100-200 feet. If you’re angling, you can throw pilchards behind your boat every five to ten minutes. The baitfish will swim around, and the tuna will splash around as they try and eat them. If you’re really serious about catching Blackfin tuna, then bring 100 to 500 pilchards.
You won’t regret spending the afternoon fishing for Blackfin tuna!

Get Fired Up for the Fire on the Fourth Festival

Next week we will once again be celebrating one of the most important days in American history: Independence Day. If you want to try something a little different from just enjoying food and brilliant fireworks displays, you may want to check out the Miami Beach Fire on the Fourth Festival.
Miami Beach’s 73rd Street and North Beach Bandshell Park will serve as the host of the Fire on the Fourth Festival which begins bright and early at 9 am with a great way to kick off what’s sure to be an exciting day: complimentary beach yoga. The food trucks will be open at 1 am just in time to grab a bite while the Kids Zone will open at noon with lots of activities for the little ones to enjoy including rock climbing, face painting, potato sack racing, and more.
For those wishing to give back, Operation Thank You will be on the premises collecting cards to send out to troops who will certainly appreciate being remembered and recognized for the fearless work they do. Other highlights at the festival include live musical performances, a fun Junkanoo Parade, and of course a dazzling fireworks display beginning at 9 pm to close the day’s festivities.

Prepare Your Palate for The Lincoln Eatery

If you’ve somehow managed to try just about every single restaurant Miami Beach has to offer, worry not! In just a few months, an all-new food hall will be opening its doors near Lincoln Road and the Miami Beach Convention Center during the upcoming fall season.
Set to be located at 723 Lincoln Lane, the food hall will be appropriately named The Lincoln Eatery. It will offer customers the option of dining indoors or out and there will also be a central bar selling a variety of drinks including cocktails, wine, and beer. There are already plans in the works to debut a rooftop terrace next year that will also allow al fresco dining and a spot for hosting special events.
Those with broad palates will be pleased to know the food hall will have a total of sixteen different choices when determining where to dine and drink. Necessary Purveyor, for example, will sell sandwiches along with tea while Fresh Garden Bowls will include fresh juice, salads, and wraps. Sushi and pizza are also on the menu.
When it opens, The Lincoln Eatery will join Time Out Market, another food hall located on Drexel Avenue that’s also expected to open during the fall.
