People.....do a look see at this.....
The Dolphin Tagging Study has linked all the dolphin caught off the Atlantic seaboard as being from one stock. It has shown that this same stock is also caught throughout the Bahamas ...and Caribbean Sea. The first link of the dolphin in the Gulf of Mexico with those in the Atlantic has now been established. We have even documented U.S. East Coast dolphin crossing into the eastern North Atlantic south of the Azores Islands. Results from the work of volunteer recreational anglers over the years have shown some amazing movement patterns by these highly migratory fish that were never even considered before. Now, with the invention of the satellite archival tag, we are now able to peer into the underwater behavior of this amazing fish.
This issue of the newsletter examines the unseen behavior of dolphin. This fish has always been view as an animal that lived at the surface of the ocean, even though it typically inhabits areas that are extremely deep. The DRP was the first to show that dolphin use more than just the surface, documenting their dives to more than 800 feet deep. This newsletter issue follows the diving behavior of the latest fish tracked with a satellite tag. This particular fish was tagged off San Juan, Puerto Rico, and was tracked to a point north of the eastern tip of Cuba. Covering 520 miles, the fish had traveled half the distance to the Florida Keys when the instrument reached its programed release date for the unit to surface and begin its data transmission.
I hope you find this article interesting and informative.

Governor Scott announces additional license-free fishing days
Today, Governor Rick Scott and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) announced that Friday, Nov. 29 will be a license-free freshwater fishing day, and Saturday, November 30 will be a saltwater license-free fishing day.
Governor Scott said, “License-free fishing days serve as a great opportunity for families to enjoy the incredible fishing opportunities that Florida has to offer. After the Thanksgiving holiday, families will be able to head to the water with their visiting guests and experience some of the best fishing in the world.”
Florida’s license-free fishing days are an opportunity for people to take advantage of Florida’s outstanding fishing. Florida’s recreational freshwater and saltwater fishing industry has an $8.9 billion economic impact and supports nearly 80,000 jobs. While providing recreational opportunities that encourage healthy, active-outdoor fun, these license-free fishing days also help grow the industry and promote conservation stewardship.
There are eight license-free fishing days per year, where the requirement to have a recreational fishing license is waived for residents and visitors. All other fishing and boating rules and regulations still apply (see MyFWC.com/Fishing for details).
Dec. 28 will be the last freshwater license-free fishing day for 2013.
Beginning in 2014, all eight license-free fishing days will fall on the same weekend days from year to year, allowing potential anglers to plan fishing trips in advance and businesses and nonprofit groups to plan events around these fishing license holidays. The recurring days will be:
•First Saturday and Sunday in June
•First Saturday in September
•Saturday following Thanksgiving
•First Saturday and Sunday in April
•Second Saturday and Sunday in June
The FWC offers several angler-recognition programs to help promote fishing and share memories. Freshwater anglers can go to TrophyCatchFlorida.com to be entered in a drawing for a bass boat and motor. If they catch, document and release a trophy largemouth bass over 8 pounds, they can submit a photo of the entire fish (head to tail) on a scale to claim great rewards—starting with a $50 gift card, custom T-shirt and certificate. For other recreational freshwater fishes (33 species included), a simple photo of a fish that exceeds the designated minimum length or weight will get them a Big Catch certificate and bragging rights on the website.
For saltwater anglers, the challenge is to catch a “slam” by catching three different species of saltwater fishes in the same day. Four different groupings of popular sport fish are included to promote the diversity of marine fisheries the state has to offer. For an application and to learn more about this program, which is conducted in collaboration with the International Game Fish Association, visit MyFWC.com/Fishing, then click saltwater and Grand Slams.
Barbara sent us this...
I was walking down the street when I was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked me for a couple of dollars for dinner.
I took out my wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked,"If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?"
"No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless man replied.
"Will you use it to go fishing instead of buying food?" I asked.
"No, I don't waste time fishing," the homeless man said.."I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive."
"Will you spend this on hunting equipment?" I asked.
"Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless man. "I haven't gone hunting in 20 years!"
"Well," I said, "I'm not going to give you money. Instead, I'm going to take you home for a shower and a terrific dinner cooked by my wife."
The homeless man was astounded. "Won't your wife be furious with you for doing that?
I replied, "Don't worry about that. It's important for her to see what a man looks like after he has given up drinking, fishing and hunting."
2013 license free days....
The additional saltwater license-free fishing days will be Oct. 12 and Nov. 30 and additional freshwater license-free days will be Nov. 29 and Dec. 28.
