Looking for Fishermen-Friendly Lodging?
Florida Fishermen Editor Tysa Dawn, joined Jeff Wenzel of FishDuel aboard with Capt. Billy Nobles & first mate Taylor Topliffe. The target species, blackfin tuna! We got comfy & made a 40 mile track out to the promise land & Billy did exactly what he said, he put us on the meat!
Not only did everyone get to battle with these super powerful fish, we put five on ice! It was another day of "lady luck" as I reeled in the largest tuna of the day but it wasn't going to be easy! After nearly boating my fish, the drag began to scream even louder & Mr. Tuna was gone again! Every muscle in my body hurt at this point, my arms were jello, but i had to boat this fish.. even with a eight foot bull shark hot on its tail! Topliffe was absolutely TOP of the line and Nobles made sure everyone enjoyed themselves and each had the best possible experience! To me, every day on the water is a wonderful day but, a wonderful day on the water with great people AND good fishing.. you can't beat it! I highly recommend Captain Billy Noble & crew if you are in the St. Petersburg area & are looking for the best offshore charter!! Tell him Florida Fishermen sent ya!!

Doubled up in December
It was a gloomy December morning and we were headed out on a mission. While no other shark anglers were out fishing the surf, I was kayaking baits 400yds out in cold, sloppy conditions. North winds and constant drizzle added to the wintry adventure. It wasn't too long after deploying baits, that my reel started screaming. While reeling, I could tell it wasn't your average 5' Texas Blacktip. Half way through reeling in the first shark, my other reel took off! I was pleased to finally land my first Sandbar shark, a healthy female coming in at 6'9 . This was also my first double hook up and I was able to successfully land both sharks. She measured in at 6'6" (Sandbar no. 2). Both sharks were successfully tagged and released.
Although weather conditions weren't exactly ideal for a casual relaxing day of fishing down the beach, I wouldn't have traded the way that day had gone for anything. I prefer to earn it. It makes me appreciate it more.

The Ringling Ca' d'Zan
John Ringling(1875-1936) In 1925 Time Magazine identified John Ringling the 13th wealthiest man in America with a worth of over 200 million dollars. His Business investments ranged from the Short Line Railroad to Madison Square Gardens in New York.
Finally in 2002 at a cost of $15,000,000.00 the house was restored back to its original estate after being closed for many years. Today this amazing house is open to the public as part of The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida.
Author: Rick Kimble
The Ca’ d’Zan : Ringling’s Venetian Palace – Located on Sarasota Bay at the end of University Parkway hidden back in its own little world is one of the last Gilded Aged mansions. Designed by the Famous New York Architect Dwight James Baum and constructed by builder Owen Burns completed in 1926. This one of a kind palace comprising of 36,000 square feet and 56 rooms filled with art and original furnishings was the home of John and Mable Ringling.
Ca’ d’Zan meaning the “The House Of John” in Venetian dialect , was designed with all the extravagance and sophistication befitting the Circus King.

After While, Crocodile
In 2003, an American crocodile later dubbed “Cleatus” baffled scientists when he was discovered 70 miles west of Key West at the Dry Tortugas. Most of Florida’s American crocodile population live in swampy areas shaded by mangrove forests, so it was unusual to spot this 14-foot croc on the coral island and even more bizarre to imagine its journey to the fort. Scientists granted Cleatus the freedom to live peacefully in the Tortugas until last Sunday- when he was tranquilized and transferred by sea plane to the Everglades, forced to leave a place he has willingly called his home for over a decade.
Though the park’s manager Glenn Simpson insists that considerations to remove the crocodile included both the tourists’ and the croc’s best interests, it seems to me that this is another classic example of putting human narcissism above nature’s harmony. Cleatus, who spent most of his fourteen years at the fort avoiding human interaction, had recently began to appear more frequently. Why? Because tourists had been spotted feeding him.
As Simpson explains, “We were starting to see a strong connection between people and food for the croc. It would start following people” (Staletovich, 2017.) Well no sh*t, Sherlock. It is common sense that his interest in humans began to grow when they were intentionally provoking him in what was most likely an attempt to elevate their social media status. So who was really creating the problem- Cleatus or the tourists?

Removal of the crocodile has sparked controversy, especially among my fellow locals. I am personally outraged by the decision to remove Cleatus from his home. Though I understand that the Tortugas may not be the safest place for Cleatus to live anymore (and I would hate for him to share the same fate as the infamous Bahamian pigs) this is a direct result of human ignorance. If the tourists would have just let him be, he wouldn’t be strained to adapt in a new environment where predators lurk around every corner.
This isn’t the first time that humans have disrupted the natural flow of nature, and it certainly won’t be the last. People feed wildlife for a variety of reasons not realizing that they are sparking a chain of damaging patterns and are creating a dependency that cannot be supported in the animals’ natural habitats. Our impact on the environment is detrimental and even more frightening now that our country’s leader has decided to bluntly deny scientific evidence surrounding this subject. It is up to us to educate those around us and prevent others from making the same mistakes.

There are many fishing apparel companies and clubs out there, but they are not all the same.Salt Strong is a one of a kind company, acting more like a family than a corporation, and I will tell you why. But first, let’s start from the beginning… In December of 2014, Joe and Luke Simonds, the” Salt Strong brothers” as we all call them, quit their six-figure jobs and sold all their real estate and digital assets to break the status quo in the fishing industry. Everyone wanted to know why? Well, I’ll tell you why: To teach the world to catch fish, to create amazing family experiences through fishing, and to make and distribute fishing apparel in America. Salt Strong isn’t just a company trying to sell
you clothing, decals, ect. It is a family. They do not have “fans” or “clients,” they have Tribe members. They have core values unlike most companies which all can be found at https://www.saltstrong.com/abo ut-salt-strong/ . They not only have apparel for sale (which all of their apparel is proudly made in right here in Florida), but they also review products and post how-to videos on social media. They have had many “meet and greets” where tribe members meet eat talk and fish as a family. They have free fishing tournaments and contest to not only bring us together but to show their thanks and appreciation for the support and unbelievable growth in the two short years since the companies birth.
SALT STRONG: WE BELIEVE
And unlike most companies or club’s founders, Joe and Luke are extremely down to earth and friendly and approachable. Not only do they read every single post on the Salt Strong page and Facebook page, but they actually take the time to reply (it’s never a paid office goon that doesn’t even fish).
They truly listen to the members and take all the feedback to heart. They always put the family first (and not their bank accounts). They even have a fishing report page where anyone can post reports on their fishing areas, what they are catching, and more.
There is also an ambassador program that was started last year. I have been a proud hand-picked ambassador and I hope to be around for a long time. As a Salt Strong ambassador we further the reach to promote the core values and to encourage and coach fellow anglers to get out with their friends and families to catch fish.
All of this is why I became a part of this fishing Tribe known as Salt Strong. It’s also why I plan to stay with and support the family for years to come, because that is what we are, a family.
Joe and Luke started out with the mission to bring families together through fishing, and they were blown away by the overwhelming growth and support they received. As they continue to grow I will be there, and I hope after reading this that you will join the ride and become part of the Tribe as well.
---Matthew Kaczmarek, Salt Strong Ambassador

We would like to thank Lou Sea / Lindsay Gillespie for the research and writing of this article , It is a very serious issue that must be addressed and corrected immediately. We ask that you "Remember When You Vote"
FOR DECADES environmentalists have warned us of our devastating impact on our planet. From pollution to climate change, there is no doubt that we are slowly destroying our environment for our future generations.On the global level, the irreversible effects are spiraling dangerously out of control.
"Enough is Enough!"
Locally, the issues are seemingly as uncontainable, and they will soon be too disastrous to be ignored. The dumping of countless billions of gallons of toxic water from Lake Okeechobee into South Florida is nothing short of old news. Scientists and advocates for the environment have been warning us for years of the deadly repercussions such “backwashing” from local farmers can result in.

Though regulations have been implemented to guide farmers in procedures pertaining to cleaning water before it is recycled back into lake, these guidelines are loosely defined and enforced, and they do not have any clear consequences for the farmers who choose not to comply (Dewan, 2016.) Eric Draper, an environmental Florida lobbyist who has worked closely with government officials to enhance the bill that governs these guidelines, suggests that permits are the only way to ensure that farmers are doing everything in their power to avoid dumping polluted water back into our lakes, rivers and oceans. He believes that more laws should be established requiring farmers to retain more water on their personal property and cut-back on fertilizer use in areas surrounding the lake. He also insists that the government build and employ sewer lines that connect to the septic tanks near the polluted water (Rangel, 2016). The problem is no longer contained to Lake Okeechobee. It is now directly spreading through South Florida’s waterways, affecting both the Gulf and Atlantic Ocean and every where in between, including the three-million acres that comprise the Everglades. Sanibel Island, a land known for its crystal waters and sea shell blanketed beaches recently had hundreds of dead fish wash up onshore due to “red tide,” a name given to harmful algae that kill sea grass and other marine life and is a direct result from Lake Okeechobee pollution (Contreras, 2016.) The Caloosahatchee River, formally infamous for its giant tarpon and abundance of blue crab, is being suffocated by excessive nutrients that feed the harmful algae and threaten it inhabitants (Gillis, 2016.) One does not have to be consuming or swimming in the toxic affects; it is reported that the algae can cause irritation of the throat, coughing, and watery eyes to those who live near the affected water systems (Contreras, 2016.)
For example, in October 2013 Republican Representative Patrick Murphy (D-Fla.) released pictures of dead marine animals in an attempt to outrage the community (McCorquodale, 2008.) Yet, nothing has changed and I am on a quest to determine why. How many more marine animals must perish before we make a change in our water management programs? How many more ecosystems must be permanently damaged before our heads turn? How many communities must suffer from inadequate water conditions before we decide that enough is enough? The answers to these questions still remain unclear. One thing, however, is absolutely clear: not only are our current government officials doing nothing to ensure a long-term solution to this problem, but they are allowing such pollution to incur while taxpayers and Florida residents are left to deal with the horrific consequences. During Rick Scott’s five years as governor, he has denied funds to multiple studies that would have quantified the damage this toxic water has imposed on South Florida’s inhabitants (Gimleteye, 2016.) Without this data, it is nearly impossible to determine an effective clean-up plan and to rally support for such a significant issue.
With El Niño in full effect and climate change on the rise, the issue is guaranteed to continue to grow out of control (Reid, 2016.) Thousands of sharks and other marine life are starting to move to warmer waters, which are also some of the most heavily impacted areas. It won’t be long until this issue affects a waterway near you severely impacting your way of life if it hasn’t already. The last time we had an epidemic this devastating, tourism (one of our state’s leading industries) declined tremendously, sending rippling effects across the state (Dewan, 2016.) All of the amazing wonders that make us proud to be Floridians- fishing, boating, swimming, surfing, sailing- are nourished from our water systems. Imagine what our state will be like if we continue to pollute the founding source of our way of life. It is up to all of us to make a difference by spreading awareness and urging our government to provide relief to all who are being affected by this madness. The intentional pollution of our waterways has been allowed for far too long, and it is up to us to put a stop to it by voting for leaders in the upcoming election who will actually take a stand against the destruction of our planet and by joining the movement to restore our water. Enough is simply enough! By: Lou Sea
It was a warm Thursday evening at about 6:30 in upper Tampa Bay when FishDuel Founder and CEO Jeff Wenzel was wading the flats near Cypress Park with four other fishing pals. Redfish were running the trough off the sandbar at low tide waiting for the water to move back in. “We’d toss live chubs or a half of a blue crab into the drop off and slam upper and over slot fish all evening” he said. That’s when the idea for FishDuel came to him. “We were all in a line spread about 10 yards apart, when one of my friends said, let’s all put in ten dollars and whoever catches the biggest red takes the pot.” The rest as they say is history.
From that one outing, a cutting edge mobile application for the everyday fisherman was born. With all the social media platforms available (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Fishbrain and so many others), one would question what makes FishDuel different? As Jeff explains “FishDuel is a unique platform and the first of its kind. It allows ordinary everyday fisherman to compete against other anglers in their area and of their skill level for real money, any time anywhere, in fresh water or salt, for any gamefish species. In other words, it’s tournaments on-demand”. “An angler can create a private duel, choosing the time, date, species, duration and entry fee. He or she can then invite whoever they want and share the duel to their social media networks. Anglers can also join daily public duels generated by the system.” According to Wenzel, you can choose a duel starting at only ten dollars, or up to $500. “We’ve solved a problem that a lot of anglers have which is that they want to out fish their buddies but other than posting pictures on social media, there’s really no tangible way to compete other than the pro and semi-pro circuits. However fishing real sanctioned, sponsored tournaments are very expensive and intimidation to the everyday angler. Also, many won’t qualify to even enter.”
A Refreshing New Spin on Technology for the Fishing Industry
According to him, development is already started on a user driven educational component and video library which can help anglers become even better. Users will be encouraged to submit tips and techniques that have helped them become more successful landing bigger fish more often.
Check out FishDuel and download the app for Android and iOS at www.fishduel.com.
Wenzel goes on to say that the mission of FishDuel is to add an element of excitement to fishing, even if you’re by yourself. “Anyone can join a duel. One very unique feature is that you can actually measure and submit your catch to the leader board using the official FishDuel measuring marker. We send them to you for free when you register the app.”
The FishDuel team is made up of a mixture of true passionate fisherman and very talented technology wizards. “Our guys and girls are dedicated to expanding FishDuel into something truly special. One of our main focuses is conservation of the resource. As fisherman, we are aware of some of the issues facing our waters and that’s why 1% of all revenue from entry fees will go to local non-profits whose goal is to protect and defend our playground” Wenzel added.
