Arteries carry blood from your heart to other parts of your body.  Only about 1 in 4 adults with hypertension have their condition under control.

Snook fishing is something South Floridians are known for, and while it's a fun sport, it's tough for a beginner to figure out on their own. Snook not only puts up a powerful fight, but its mildly-firm white meat has an excellent flavor due to its diet of crustaceans and other small fish. If you're looking to catch a snook in the Jupiter area but don't know where to start, try one of our local snook charters!

Gerald Ford officially recognized Black History Month in 1976, calling upon the public to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of Black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” To commemorate and celebrate the contributions to our nation made by people of African descent, American historian Carter G. Woodson established Black History Week (then called “Negro History Week”) nearly a century ago. The event was first celebrated during the second week of February 1926.  February was chosen as Black History Month because the birthdays of the revered black abolitionist Frederick Douglass and President Abraham Lincoln fall during that month.

On February 1st, the much awaited 2021 recreational snook season opens in Palm Beach County for the duration of February, March, April, and May until the last day on May 31st. 

South Florida snook is one of the most prized and most regulated fish due to a few good reasons. Snook not only puts up a powerful fight, but its mildly-firm white meat has an excellent flavor due to its diet of crustaceans and other small fish. Because of this, if snook fishing was left unmanaged, they would surely be a rare sight.

Buying or selling a snook in the state of Florida is illegal, so if you’re dying to feast on this sly silver fish, you’ll just have to catch it yourself!

The bag limit for harvesting snook is ONE per harvester per day, your catch must be
