In partnership with the Perry J. Cohen Foundation, “Plastic Reef” by Federico Uribe will be on display at the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens until May 31st, 2020.

Plastic Reef is exactly what you would expect it to be, a sculpture constructed of discarded plastic and recycled into a colorful and fun depiction of Florida’s coral reef. The artist enjoys creating beautiful sculptures out of objects that were not originally created with the intent of beauty, and has turned a portion of ANSG into an underwater wonderland.

“We throw 80 tons of garbage into the sea a day.” Uribe stated on Vimeo, “This is [my] reflection on it. This is me thinking about the beauty that is gone from coral reefs.”

His intent is to get people thinking about the plastic they

The newest addition of incredible mom-and-pop restaurants in the area, Tequesta Café opened on the corner of U.S. 1 and Waterway Road in Tequesta where Corner Café used to be.

The owner, Michael Wolford, is a doctor at the VA Hospital in West Palm Beach, but he has put an enormous amount of energy and pride into crafting the atmosphere and unique breakfast and lunch items at Tequesta Café.

The owner isn’t the only one who puts his

January – Historic Redland Tropical Trail

Palm Beach County is known as a worldwide vacation destination, but if you love temperate weather, gorgeous beaches, and amenities like golfing, fine dining, or fishing, it is also one of the most desirable places to live in the world.

Based on Census and FBI data about jobs, housing, safety, amenities, affordability, diversity, education, and commute, 3 out of 10 of the “Best Places to Live in Florida” are actually located in Palm Beach County – Palm Beach, North Palm Beach, and Tequesta.

Beginning on June 16th, 2017, West Palm Beach artist Rene Gibson undertook a project the entire sportfishing and art community has been watching intensely since then. Starting with adorning a single Swarovski Crystal to the tip of the marlin bill, Gibson meticulously placed over 100,000 crystals to create the most brilliantly glistening full-sized taxidermy marlin you will ever see.

Throughout the two-year process, Gibson shared her progress on Instagram for enthusiastic fans, and on June 29th, 2019, Gibson let her daughter place the very last crystal to complete this beautiful piece of art.

“It takes a village to crystal a marlin.” Rene Gibson said, “It’s been a long journey and I want to thank those of you who have followed along. Special thanks

If you’re from the Jupiter area, you probably have many childhood memories splashing around the shallow lagoon of DuBois Park. Some of the best family time of my childhood was spent searching for crabs, attempting to catch small fish with a toy net in the mangroves, and eating grilled hotdogs on the warm sand.

While the unique estuary is a joy to explore, there is also a rich history behind DuBois Park. At the top of the “Indian mound”, a large pile of mollusk shells built by indigenous Native Americans, in the center of the park is a house made of Florida pine that was once home to early Florida pioneers, Harry and Susan DuBois. Harry bought 18 acres south of the Jupiter Inlet that he had long admired for its ridge of Indian shell mound, and he needed

Established in 1935 by the West Palm Beach Fishing Club, the Silver Sailfish Derby is the oldest running sailfish tournament in the world. Limited to 50 boats, the 2020 Derby is sold out.

The Silver Sailfish Derby is a tournament with a massive amount of history, credited with developing the red release pennant and as one of the front-runners in promoting catch and release. Ernest Hemingway was a Derby trophy sponsor at one point, and the only time the tournament didn’t run was for three years during WWII.

The Derby features a two-day, Thursday & Friday, fishing format - a measure that was taken to avoid competition with weekend anglers and to foster increased tournament participation.

The 2020 Schedule of Events are as follows:

As we ring in 2020, we reflect on a turbulent year helping our friends at Old Bahama Bay rebuild after Hurricane Dorian. Winner’s Circle Charities was the first organization cleared by the President of OBB to arrive at the docks, and swiftly organized donation drop-off locations, sponsored Costco trips, and secured hundreds of boats to respond to the needs of families and friends in the Bahamas. Rest assured, OBB is back and better than ever! If it wasn’t for the Winner’s Circle Charities Fishing Tournament every year, Winner’s Circle Charities would not have had the immediate resources available to facilitate such a timely response, so thank you so much to all of the teams and sponsors who participate every single year!

“We’re excited to be able to
