"FKCC Shark Repellant" - Grassy Key, Fl
Florida and also at the Florida Keys Community College is where Dr. Patrick Rice is working with both students and sharks to find a chemical repellant that protects humans from sharks! It was found that putting a shark in a trance like state (tonic immobility) one could perform surgery on even large dangerous sharks. Anything that can wake them up from this state is a candidate for a good shark repellant!
Mustad™ Ringed Hooks Versus Standard Hooks
There are some major advantages to the ringed hooks over fishing with standard eyed hooks. Foremost is that when fishing with live bait, especially smaller or more fragile baits like many of the baits you guys fish in the Keys like Pilchards and such, the line attaching to the ring allows the ring and hook eye to act as a pivot point as the bait swims.
Key West Wahoo & Sharks

In Key West, what happens when you mix blood and guts, wahoo and sharks, in the wintertime? Well, down here, we go swimming!

This is the time of year that we spend a fair amount of time close to the edge of the reef just off Key West. Most of the inshore water is cold, but the warm offshore waters of the Gulf Stream move in closer.


Good Friends and Fishing Memories
by Christian Goodpaster

As the Action-Craft skiff begins to come on plane across the greenish tinted water, I am thankful I have been blessed for another day of life.

What do Kiteboarding and the Bahamas have in common?
Kiteboarding is a new water-sport that incorporates elements of windsurfing and wakeboarding. Basically a rider uses a kite and the power of the wind to propel themselves across the water on a board similar to a wakeboard. I had been taking lessons for a while with an organization called the Kitehouse out of Key West.
Urban Nature, Banana River Florida
My name is Derek Redwine. After many years of being friends with Jose Wejebe, he recently asked me if my family and I would be interested in doing a fishing show with him. After I picked myself up off the ground, we talked through some ideas. Jose made it clear he really just wanted us to do what we do.

This was very special to us because he wasn't asking us to be a fishing guide, captain, or expert on the river...he was just asking us to be a family and show him how we like to explore the outdoors and pass on our passion on to our child.
