Featured Story: What is that!!!!
By: Jim

We were fishing off Fort Myers beach at about mid-night with some squid as bait. Me and my cousin were talking when the pole along with the beach chair that we attached it to was pulled right into the water. My cousin caught the pole and yanked the pole back to make sure what ever was on the pole was on good. When he pulled, the thing in the water was so strong that it took all the line and left the spool spinning like crazy. Then it started thrashing around in the water. Then it was gone. Never found out what it was.


Featured Recipe: how to clean and store fish
By: Bait n wait

Learn how to properly store and clean your fish:

What you need:
Ice
Super-sharp knife with a long, thin blade
Rubber Gloves
As soon as you land a fish, put it on ice. Be sure the ice drains as it melts. To improve the quality of the meat, drain the blood by cutting the fish across a major artery. Sharks and salmon should be gutted as soon as they are landed, rinsed and immediately packed with ice.
Keep the meat in the refrigerator for up to five days. Use a vacuum sealer to pack fish that will be frozen, or put the meat in a sealed bag, and add water until the fish is covered. Be sure to squeeze out any excess air before sealing.
