The Acrobatic Tarpon

The tarpon is definitely among the sea dwellers known for giving even the most experienced of anglers a challenge. Anglers will potentially spend their whole life working on their tarpon fishing technique because of the unpredictability and obstinacy of the fish.
Tarpon has earned a reputation for its acrobatic feats, but you should be aware of the best spots to find one. In Miami, they are most active during the beginning of the month until they become more elusive as July approaches. A few spots you might be able to snag tarpon include Government Cut and Haulover Inlet.
Mullet and small crabs are an effective lure for tarpon, but shrimp runs are also worth checking out as an option. Tarpon eats at just about any time of day, but if you're willing to brave night fishing, the fish gets less vigilant and due to the darkness it won't be able to see the fishing lines.
Book your summer deep sea fishing trip today at THERAPY-IV if you want to try catching tarpon.

All Systems Go for Miami Beach Art Event

As events get canceled because of the pandemic, the director of a certain Miami Beach event that takes place in December is making it clear that the event is still open. Indeed, the popular art showcase better known as Art Basel will proceed as normal. Art Basel is arguably the biggest highlight of Miami Art Week, which sees thousands of art aficionados seeking to admire or collect the latest works.
While Art Basel Miami Beach is still on, organizers behind the event are very well aware that the conditions may change and certain actions may need to be taken. The Art Basel events in Hong Kong were canceled back in March because of the pandemic while the Switzerland Art Basel was postponed from June to September of this year.
Art Basel works with local institutions in collaboration with the host city to assist with nurturing and developing art programs. Although Art Basel provides galleries with a forum to display and sell their work to customers, art spectators and students have helped to broaden its appeal to a wide international audience.

Miami Beach Selectively Opens Parks

In case you missed the news, several parks and facilities in Miami Beach reopened last week after Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez spearheaded an order to reopen various golf courses, waterways, and more. The plan does come with various restrictions in place.
Among the places now open are Flamingo Park and its track, the North Shore Park batting cages, and various tennis courts. Despite the openings, restrictions mandating social distancing remain firmly in place and park rangers will be making sure these rules remain enforced. Several parks like Beach View Park, LaGorce Park, and Washington Dog Park also remain closed and amenities such as volleyball and basketball courts remain off-limits to decrease the chances of large gatherings.
Currently, park hours in Miami Beach are from 7 am to 7 pm. Boat ramps are also open from 6 am to 8 pm for those wishing to sail or go fishing. Municipal parking lots at the city parks are only open to those registered with Miami Beach’s residential parking program.

Boating in Miami-Dade

Even as Miami-Dade moves to potentially open up restaurants and possibly other businesses, several protocols remain in place that you may wish to be aware of, if you are already. These protocols are aimed at keeping anyone and everyone in boating or boating-related activities safe.

Boat ramps, for example, are open from 6 am to 8 pm every day and only one boat is allowed per ramp at a time. While on shore, face masks are required and must remain on until the vessel has left the dock upon being fully loaded.

When it’s time to clean the fish, only a single person is allowed to be at the station and the station should be cleaned and disinfected following its use. During this process, it’s expected to maintain social distancing.

As for charter boats like THERAPY-IV, the captain, as well as the crew and any patrons, are required to wear face masks and maintain social distancing whether they are on shore or on the vessel.

The Rise of Blackfin and Kingfish

As Florida’s weather gets warmer along with the water, there may be a greater presence of kingfish and blackfin tuna activity. Blackfin tuna is usually best captured by live chumming (sardines are easy to procure and make a perfect blackfin bait). During the early hours of the morning and the evening are ideal for going blackfin tuna fishing on a charter boat.
Blackfin are brawny aquatic warriors, and when they try to swim down to escape you can expect a longer battle time.
Kingfish is Florida's largest mackerel variety and typically weighs about 20 pounds. They can grow up to six feet long though, and weigh 100 pounds. Since the water does tend to hover somewhere around 68 degrees Fahrenheit, the fish tends to hang out in Florida’s water all year long.
Kingfish also begin migrating north in the spring, much like blackfin tuna and migrate back in the autumn months. Kingfish prefer swimming in the vicinity of shipwrecks, reefs, and oil platforms, as that’s largely where the baitfish (sardines and herring) they feed on tend to dwell. Another way to find them is to search out birds that dive and capture fish on the water.

Stay Active While Social Distancing

Your health is a top priority and if you’re the active type, it may be tough to figure out ways to stay active while still social distancing. While the following suggestions may not replace the thrill of deep sea fishing on the water of South Florida, they can at least keep the body or mind moving in the meantime.
Should you have a yard, make use of it. Even if it’s something as simple as sitting outdoors alone in your yard when it’s sunny, the fresh air can ease the mind and the sunlight will nourish the body with vitamin D. You may also wish to consider firing up a workout video and enjoying it outdoors.
There is a saying that goes something along the lines of “an idle mind is the devil’s playground”. Give the brain the workout it needs by doing activities that involve using some brainpower. This can be something as simple as a crossword or a jigsaw puzzle.

The Colorful Tilefish

While you remain safely indoors, we’re continuing our look at more of the various fish roaming the waters of South Florida. This time, the spotlight is on the tilefish.
Tilefish tend to dwell in the coastal waters of Miami and Miami Beach and typically consist of golden tilefish and gray tilefish. Golden tilefish are also called big Northern tilefish. Far and away the "silver tiles" or silver tilefish are the most colorful tilefish in offshore fishing areas in South Florida. Golden tilefish are attractively colored, and almost appear to illuminate below the surface. When they are in the water with shades of black, blue and white, they tend to have exquisite neon colors, and often have spots in gold and yellow. Gold tilefish also have lovely, gorgeously iridescent colors.
As loners of sorts, tilefish prefer to stick to the bottom. They have sharp eyesight that helps with catching prey. When they are being preyed upon, they are also able to rapidly dive into their self-made retreats. Furthermore, tilefish like the chameleon sand tilefish can go as far as changing its colors to confuse its pursuers.

The Distinctive White Marlin

The white marlin is one of the several sea dwellers belonging to the “billfishes” group. These fish are easily identifiable by their distinctively long and sharp upper jaw, also known as a bill. The white marlin’s body is also distinctive, being dark blue above and a silvery-white of sorts on the bottom. They are often misconstrued as being roundscale spearfish but this an incorrect identification as white marlin has, among other differentiating features, a more rigid scale.
With their size and unique bill, the white marlin has the pleasure of being near the top of the food chain. It will take on any prey that is manageable based on the fish’s weight, including mahi-mahi, squid, and flying fish. They are also known to join forces with other predators to forage for food. However, the white marlin is typically a loner.
Should you hook a white marlin, expect a fierce fight. The fish will leap out of the water and whip its tail around. Its sharp bill can also prove dangerous.

Brush up on Your Fish Facts

If you’re thinking about going back on the water once it’s safe to be outdoors again, you may want to start brushing up on some of your fish facts in the meantime. Let’s begin by taking a closer look at baitfish.
Baitfish, as you might infer from their name, is primarily used as a lure to make it easier to capture bigger predatory fish such as game fish. These fish encompass many different sea dwellers like ballyhoo, flying fish, as well as the minnow when exploring freshwater.
You may be curious about the distinct characteristics between baitfish and the similarly named forage fish. “Baitfish” isn’t so much what one would assume is official. Instead, recreational fishermen simply use it as a way to refer to the distinct species of fish utilized as bait by humans to draw the attention of other fish. Fisheries like to stick to the use of “forage fish” as it refers to the small fish that are sought animals beyond just fish, like seabirds or marine mammals.

The Deep Sea Fishing Difference

If you’re thinking about deep sea fishing for the first time later this year, you may be wondering how it differs from the common activity of freshwater fishing. Let’s take a look at two fundamental differences.
For starters, you can expect larger catches with deep sea fishing. The massively endless size of the ocean means there is room for bigger sea dwellers and, therefore, much larger catches. With the larger catches, sailfish and tarpon put up a much more competitive fight.
Deep sea fishing usually means booking a chartered trip. These trips will take you to the best spots in the ocean where fish are more likely to dwell and they come with all the gear and equipment you’ll need. You’ll spend less time setting up and more time increasing your chances of a catch.

Tips for a Fishing Day Alone at Sea

If a deep sea fishing trip in the middle of the ocean with no one around seems like a way to deal with the COVID-19 anxiety, you may wish to add some tips to your repertoire that may improve your odds of a catch. Here are a few to consider.
Practice lure diversity. Because visibility in saltwater is lower, it may be harder to get the attention of a fish. You may want to look into lures that are brightly colored as these are more likely to be spotted by different species of fish, potentially increasing your capture chances.
Patience is key. This is for fishing fans that are just getting their feet wet. If it seems like there is not much fish activity going on, don’t move somewhere else immediately. It can take some time before there is some contact with big game fish. Sometimes it's easier to hang around.
Keep an eye out for other animals. Is there an unusual amount of seagulls diving into the ocean activity going on? Those seagulls could be swooping in for some fish. If feeding activity is high, chances are some fish are lurking just below the surface.

Feeling Stressed? Deep Sea Charter Fishing May Be the Answer

With the news and social media flooded with reports and possible misinformation about a certain pandemic and the importance of staying away from crowded areas, the openness of the seas may be the solution to help with easing the jitters.

The Miami Open Returns This Month

For avid tennis fans, one of the most anticipated events is the Wimbledon tennis tournament. For those of us here in Miami, there is also the Miami Open, a tennis tournament also known as the Miami Masters.
The Miami Open initially started as a potential idea during the 1960s when major names like Jack Kramer, Earl Henry “Butch” Buchholz, and Pancho Gonzalez used a station wagon to get around and play at various fairgrounds. It was Buchholz who decided to devise a two-week players tournament, which would come to be known as “Winter Wimbledon”. After spending some time working to make Winter Wimbledon a reality, a world-class tennis tournament finally came to see the light of day on February 4, 1985, featuring some of the most widely acclaimed and respected names in the sport of tennis.
The 2020 Miami Open is taking place at Hard Rock Rock Stadium on March 23rd through April 5th. Grand Slam record-holder Serena Williams will bring her legendary athleticism to the tournament which will also include Sofia Kenin and Novak Djokovic, the current Australian Open champions.

Remembering an Epochal Photo in American History

Last Sunday marked the 75th anniversary of one of the most iconic images in the United States: Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima, shot by Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Joe Rosenthal. The image which depicts a group of six marines raising the flag atop Mount Suribachi became a symbol of the Marine Corps while also serving as a reminder of the lives lost during World War II.
When the photo was shot on February 23, 1945, Iwo Jima had seen bloodshed for five days, as the United States, as well as Japan, suffered many casualties. By the time the war was over, over 25,000 lives had been collectively lost during the 36 days of the conflict.
Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima appeared on numerous newspapers throughout the United States shortly after it was shot. The photo earned such fame, it became the centerpiece of a prosperous war bonds campaign that included the six members of the service claimed to have snapped in the photo. Those men have since been identified and have rightfully earned their place in history.

After a delay to weather conditions, the 2020 Daytona 500 is having its season opener today for the 62nd time, continuing its extensive tradition of delivering unbelievable finishes, tense races, and more than plenty of speed and impeccable driving skills.
For those that may be unfamiliar with what Daytona 500, the competition is centered around a 500-mile long race that takes place annually at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida. The race remains the most important and prestigious event on the NASCAR schedule and holds the biggest purse.
This year’s Daytona 500 will see professional stock car racing driver Austin “The Ace” Dillon return to defend his 2018 win. Dillon won the NASCAR Rookie of the Year in the Truck Series back in 2010 and he is the current record holder when it comes to the most consecutive poles in the Nationwide Series with four.
The 2020 Daytona 500 has already generated headlines after the President of the United States (who serves as the grand marshal of the race) became just the second president in the history of the Daytona 500 to utter the iconic line commanding the drivers to start their engines.

What Are You Doing This President’s Day Weekend?

Next Monday, the United States will be observing the federal holiday we all know better as President’s Day. Usually, the holiday is observed on the third Monday of February and is meant to commemorate the first man to serve as US President: George Washington. Since the Uniform Monday Holiday Act was enacted by Congress, the 15th through the 21st is the typical “window” when the holiday is celebrated.
There’s an interesting fact or two regarding the name of the holiday. “President’s Day” isn’t the “real” name of the holiday, it’s Washington’s Birthday. While Washington is supposed to be celebrated, the holiday has since come to serve as a way to celebrate presidents of the past and present. The holiday's name may vary depending on the state. In some cases, it also goes by Washington's and Lincoln's Birthday.
A popular legend about George Washington was when, after being given a hatchet, he cut down his father's cherry as a boy. Once his father confronted him, it was confirmed by young George who uttered his now-famous line, "I can't tell a lie." As a result of this incident, cherry pie is a popular food eaten on President's Day.

Snapping Great Photos at Sea

Part of the deep sea fishing trip is taking pictures to remember the experience. After all, if you make a big catch, you’ll more than likely want to remember the exciting moment. With that in mind, there are some tips to know when you want to snap some pictures at sea.
It may cover the eyes, but you may wish to wear sunglasses when taking pictures. On particularly sunny days in South Florida, the sun can be borderline blinding, especially when it reflects off of the sea. The last thing you want is a bunch of people squinting in your pictures because the sun is too bright. On top of that, sunglasses will protect your eyes from damaging UV rays.
Take the sun’s position into account when snapping your photos. With your back to the sun, it will naturally illuminate a subject. Just make sure that the sun isn’t pointing directly into the camera lens as this may cause a person to appear washed out or too dark.
If you do snag a big fish, what you want to do is provide a visual representation of how large it is. There are different ways you can go about this. Using a tape measure when taking the picture is an option or you could use an object that will show the size difference.

The Super Fast Sailfish

Historically, the weeks near the Super Bowl and those that follow shortly after it are the best times to catch a South Florida sailfish. The official state saltwater fish in Florida can be so abundant this time of year, you don't have a sailfish fishing pro to snag a couple of them.
Viewed by scientists as the ocean’s fastest fish, the sailfish is known for its gray and blue color and its dorsal fin called a sail that also gives the fish its name. The fish experiences a surprisingly quick growth spurt, reaching a length of nearly five feet in just one year. As for the sail, it remains in a folded down position while the fish swims and is only raised once the sailfish is about to attack its prey. The raised sail assists with keeping the sailfish’s bill mostly undetectable, making it easier to snag prey.
With a deep sea fishing charter, the sailfish is one of the many sea dwellers you may encounter on the South Florida seas. Contact us today to learn more.
