Florida Atlantic University’s rock climbing center has opened an outdoor climbing center.  It is located at the north end of the campus in Boca Raton, 777 Glades Road.  It is open to the public Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons. 

Rock climbing is an activity in which partakers climb up, down or across natural rock formations or artificial rock walls. The goal is to reach the summit of a natural or artificial formation. The idea is to reach this point of an outlined predetermine route without falling.

Rock climbing is a physically and mentally challenging sport.  A climber must possess strength, agility, stamina, as well as balance. Focus and mental control are essential for a successful climb.  Sport climbing focuses on the physical

The bite was scarce last weekend, but it seems to have been picking up this week due to the full moon. A few wahoo are starting to show up from the full moon and mild cold front, especially closer to the Bahamas. Around here, 150-400’ is where wahoo have hooked up along with blackfin tuna. Troll with small feathers during lowlight for tuna, and use the small ones to catch wahoo. Another option is to pick up a local favorite Junkanoo Lure and high speed troll in a zig-zag pattern. Sailfish are also coming out of the woodwork, and kite fishing with hearty live baits like goggle-eyes or blue runners is your best bet.

Kingfish and large mutton snapper have been eating sardines near 120 – 200’, and yellowtail snapper has been showing up in strong

Offshore, football-sized blackfin tuna have been pretty easy to get ahold of in about 200-400’ of water. You can use small daisy chains or troll with feathers, but quite a few have been caught trolling with small-skirted bonita strips as well. We had a lot of success with neon green and white skirts this week, but colors are a game that changes by the minute, so try a few different ones and switch the rest out as you go if your target fish is tending to a particular color. Dolphin have been in the same areas as blackfin, and wahoo have been non-existent. On the first cold front that rolls through, we’ll have our local favorite Junkanoo Lures ready. Regardless of our lack of cold

Years ago, only larger sailboats, trawlers, and yachts crossed from Florida to the Bahamas, but with modern technology and engineering, center consoles as small as 25-30 feet have been making the trip with ease.

Between Florida and the Bahamas lies the reason behind Florida’s world-class fishing- the Gulf Stream. This warm and powerful current rushes from south to north, and while crossing the open ocean can be daunting to a newcomer, it’s entirely possible with the right amount of preparation and research. Here are a few considerations when attempting to make a safe crossing.

Proper Equipment

Regardless of the current weather, the boat should be large enough and built well enough to safely travel over open ocean when the wind and seas aren’t

Snook and jacks are being caught in the early mornings or low-lit times of the day at the Juno Pier, Jupiter South Jetty, and inshore. Live mullet can be found during low light periods of the day away from boat traffic, and is usually the best bait for snook, as well as top water plugs.

Bottom fishing boats have been catching kingfish and mutton snapper near 120 – 200’ with sardines, and dolphin has been pretty consistent offshore, as well as blackfin tuna in 200-300’ with small-skirted bonita strips. 

This weekend, the 10th Annual Bluewater Babes Fish For a Cure Tournament will be going in full force, so don’t be alarmed if you see boats decked out in pink decorations and festive bikini-clad anglers. These

With the mullet run being the highlight of the past couple of weeks, most fishing has been geared toward snook, large tarpon, and amberjack chasing schools through inlets, inshore, on the beach, and at the Juno Pier. Your trustiest bait is live mullet itself, which can be found during low light periods of the day away from boat traffic. If you’re looking for a little more fun in exchange for less reliability, using top water plugs creates some exciting action as snook will strike these much harder, sometimes becoming airborne exploding on the surface.

Reef anglers should be catching some kingfish and snapper this time of year, but this week has

According to U.S. News, Florida residents can breathe easy knowing they live in the state with the best natural environment in the nation, placing number one overall for drinking water quality, urban air quality, and low pollution health risk.

The World Health Organization states that air pollution is a major environmental health risk, and by living in areas with high air quality, people can reduce the burden of disease from stroke, heart disease, lung cancer, chronic and acute respiratory diseases, and even dementia.

While the sunshine state may be best known for gorgeous beaches, oranges, and Hawaiian-shirted retirees, Florida also leads the country with lowest air and water pollutants. With the sea breeze sweeping over mostly flat terrain in
