  • FWC makes it easier for Florida...

    Florida veterans wishing to enter the commercial fishing industry may soon be able to do so more easily thanks to changes made at the Sept. 5-6 Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) meeting in Tampa.

    These changes are anticipated to take effect on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, 2012.

    The Commission implemented a new program that will modify income requirements for Florida veterans seeking a commercial restricted species endorsement license.

    Trophy bass tagging study already revealing

    This past spring, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) biologists tagged 136 trophy largemouth bass greater than eight pounds in Florida’s public waters. Each trophy bass had a yellow plastic dart tag inserted into the back of the fish just below the dorsal (back) fin.

    Hey everyone, hope all is well in the Key. Rain, rain, rain. That’s the big topic of discussion as of the last month or so. I know that too much rain is possible. And, well, I don’t think we are actually to that point but I’m pretty sure that as far as our saltwater health aspect goes, we aren’t far from too much.

    The farmers, well, they have had lots of prayers answered this year. All those rain dance parties paid off.
