Ten women from Miami to Boca Raton fish off the back of the starboard side of Catch My Drift party boat April 19 a few miles from Fort Lauderdale beach.
Ladies, Let’s Go Fishing, a national organization for women who love boating and catching food of the finned kind, gives new meaning to the old adage, “there are plenty of fish in the sea.” For them, reeling in a catch is about hooking bait, casting line and spending hours on the water with other women.
One of the most interesting scientific reports of immediate use to offshore fishing-doers tells us that baby sea turtles don’t just drift around at the whim and mercy of ocean currents. Instead, they appear to know where they want to go, and they swim to it.
Last year was a bonanza for sea turtles. There were 86,870 loggerhead, 5,895 green turtle and 1,604 leatherback nests in 27 Florida counties.
Once again it’s sea turtle nesting season, when you can see turtles at night on many a Florida beach. For nature lovers, it is a thrill to watch a big green, leatherback or loggerhead waddle ashore and upland, dig a nest and lay her eggs in the sand, then cover the stash and waddle back to sea.
Students attempt to build sea-worthy vessels using only basic materials in this annual event honoring the art of boat building. Sponsored by the Marine Industries Association of South Florida, this year’s Plywood Regatta takes place April 11-12 at Dania Beach Pier.
During April’s Earth Month, Florida marine life enthusiasts can learn about sea creatures and ocean environments without even getting wet.
