Captain Scott Yetter of Sight Fish Charters out of Little Torch Key reported a good amount of large tarpon have shown up in the channels and in the basins in Key West. On the flats and around the islands, baby tarpon, bonefish and permits have been biting. On the Gulf side, big schools of hungry bluefish have been providing hot action for his fly fishermen. Captain Dave Kostyo of Knot Nancy Charters broke his new boat in the other night by catching and releasing seven tarpon at Government Cut.
As the coxswain of the U.S. women’s eight rowing team, Mary Whipple was sometimes referred to as the heartbeat of the crew.
Midmorning Sunday and a gaggle of men line the river bank wearing chest waders and casting fly rods. Soon one of them hooks a silver, jumping fish that looks to be about three pounds.
IslamoradaSportFishing.com reported the Spanish mackerel fishing around Sprigger Bank at times has been as good as it gets. Anchoring and chumming in 10 feet of water and fishing with live shrimp and jigs are getting the job done. Mangrove snapper fishing in Florida Bay has been good. Fishing near Flamingo has only been fair, and the offshore boats at Islamorada are finding king mackerel fishing good one day but slow the next. Deep-water bottom fishing when the currents arent too strong has been good for tilefish, rose porgies and snowy grouper.

As the Life Time Miami Marathon and Half Marathon bore down on a capacity field Friday, with 800 of 25,000 spots still open when the day began, organizers and athletes prepared for a hot but seasonable day of running Sunday.

In my opinion
Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park could be the Rodney Dangerfield of parks. Located adjacent to, and somewhat overshadowed by, the Big Cypress National Preserve and Everglades National Park, Fakahatchee about a 11/2-hour drive from Miami and Fort Lauderdale is the largest of all Florida State Parks at 20miles long and 5miles wide. A hauntingly beautiful cypress swamp with towering royal palms, it is home to more native species of orchids than anywhere on the continent. But many Florida residents have never even heard of it.
