ChaseN’Tailz invites families to join in on one of the most fun holiday kids fishing tournaments around, Santa Slam! Children 12 and under are welcome to grab their rod & reel to come fish at the Juno Beach Pier on December 21st at 9am for a small $10 donation. The donation couldn’t go to a better cause- it will help less fortunate families with very sick children!

“The Santa Slam is all about teaching children about giving back and teaching them about our history by mentoring ethical angling.” Summer Warren, Director of ChaseN’Tailz and Santa Slam, told Waterfront Properties, “We think small hands giving big is our future."

Some amazing local Captains will be present during Santa Slam to mentor our junior anglers on ethical angling, bait/tackle,

Palm Beach County is one of the fishing capitals of the world for good reason. The Gulf Stream, a warm and swift Atlantic Ocean current that originates in the Gulf of Mexico, is closest to land near Palm Beach and Jupiter Inlet, providing abundant amounts of pelagic fish species as close as ¼ mile offshore.

If you don’t have a boat of your own, we have compiled this list of friendly local fishing charters for your convenience. The main target species in our area are mahi-mahi, kingfish, wahoo, tuna, sailfish, snook, snapper, grouper, and tripletail. Swordfish charters are also available for a pricier fee since a lot more specialty knowledge and work goes into a successful trip.

John D. MacArthur Beach State Park stands out as an “island in time” by preserving the natural heritage of subtropical coastal habitat that once covered southeast Florida. It is the only state park in Palm Beach County, and an environmental treasure which has been preserved for present and future generations to come.

Located on Singer Island, guests can enjoy almost two miles of pristine beach, swimming, snorkeling, and fishing in the clear blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

This hidden gem includes a welcome center, a gift shop, kayak rentals, a children’s playground, nature trails, and picnicking facilities.

This Saturday, November 30th, Florida residents and visitors have the chance to fish without the need for a saltwater fishing license. If you’ve been wondering what all the buzz is about, but you haven’t had the chance to purchase your fishing license, grab pole and some tackle from one of the many local tackle shops in the area and give it a shot.

This day is part of eight total license-free fishing days the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission offers each year when anglers are not required to have a fishing license to participate.

All bag limits, closed areas and size restrictions apply on these dates. To learn more, visit MyFWC.com/License. For fishing regulations and tips, visit MyFWC.com/Fishing.

Known as one of the prettiest fish on a Florida reef, parrotfish have vibrant patterned scales of green, blue, purple, yellow, and red. If you’re diving on one of our local natural or artificial reefs, you’re bound to see a few of these gentle beauties grazing on the bottom.

While being beautiful should be reason enough not to bring a parrotfish home for dinner, many people bring home parrotfish to keep in their aquarium for this same reason. However, there are many reasons we must leave this gorgeous grazer in the ocean!

Parrotfish spend up to 90% of their day eating algae and dead coral- basically cleaning the reef! This is so important, because without their help, reefs would be smothered by growth and die.

To top it off, after eating all of

If you’re from Florida, you already know, but if you’re new to the area, a large part of experiencing everything Florida has to offer is by eating what the natives eat- FISH! Saving the best for last, here are the top 10 fish to eat in Florida!


10. Kingfish

Some may wonder why kingfish even made this list, but the truth is that South Florida consumes a ridiculous amount of it. Also known as king mackeral, kingfish is not the best fish to eat as a main course since it tastes quite “gamey” because of its high oil content. However, commercial kingfishing is a booming industry in South Florida for a big reason- smoked fish dip. Just about every restaurant in South Florida carries this delectable

 If you have been to the beach lately, you've probably seen the incredible amount of seaweed washed up on our coastline. South Florida is currently experiencing substantial amounts of seaweed beaching up on the coastline. Due to this influx of seaweed, Palm Beach County has taken the initiative to protect turtle season and keep locals happy.

On the north end of the county, researchers at Loggerhead Marinelife Center, Juno Beach, are keeping an eye on it, making sure it doesn’t negatively impact nesting sea turtles and their hatchlings. The influx of seaweed is called sargassum and occurs naturally. Blooms that are happening offshore, and getting pushed onto the beaches, it is all based on winds and tides and surf.  When the area experiences storms, it
