Tagging sharks for NOAA. Outcomes looking good. More of my sharks being captured all along the eastern seaboard. They sure do get around! This research is crucial for understanding their behavior.

                       Wild Florida!

Getting around and getting some fish, from the ocean to deep in the Everglades, from tournaments to intense night safaris, plenty of action out there! Bass fishing has been strong, mainly bed fishing which is learning process but once mastered, can take in some really nice fish! Sharks are, well, sharks, tagging a few here and there. Migration wasn’t that strong this year. Sharks stayed put this year because of higher water temps. Who cares about global warming lol Few of my tagged sharks showed this, scientifically. Neat how that tagging information works!

 

Enjoy wild Florida!

Sunshine Skyway lit with Ukrainian colors! I was there that wet, windy morning when the old Skyway span was knocked down. Not a pretty site. But all things come back, sooner or later, as example here.

How would you rate the black-tip season (migration) so far?  I'm in Hutchinson Island and we haven't seen so many black tips in the near shore waters as I see in your photos from earlier seasons.

 

Cheers.

My personal rating is thumbs down. The migration wasn't much of anything this year compared to other years. Sure, sharks are around and most of them are residential. I didn't even fish much for the migrating fish this season. I have spoken to NOAA about this and they are of the same opinion. Most marine biologist attribute it to an increase in temperature. Call it global warming or whatever. The main player is temperature. Our water temps are just not the same. Nothing really abrupt enough to get them moving. No trigger. Heck, we only had one or two semi cold days this year. Last week we had a big front move down, and I was on the water the next day with temps clawing at the upper 80's almost into the 90's! I've noticed very warm temps on the freshwater side of things as well. By and large, all the typical Floridian migrations, runs, etc. have seen drastic declines every year....IMHO.

This is what I have waiting for me when I get home from day of fishing! Now that’s a good wife, plain and simple, sweetest girl of all!

Everglades has been on fire here in South Florida, day or night, slamming most anything. Topwater has been especially exciting!

Bass gone wild! They can run but they cannot hide lol Tearing up the glades day and night. Crazy tournament action. Topwater rules this time of year. And the hits are insane….boom! Seems like these higher temps get them meaner!
