Marine Anglers,

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.

Good fishing,

    Breakfast in the Bahamas...

    From Many Tastes Of The Bahamas & Culinary Influences of the Caribbean

    1 can (12 oz) corned beef or sardines or mackerel
    1 tsp freshly squeezed lime juice
    1 tbsp vegetable oil

    2 tbsp chopped onion
    1â„2 tsp dried thyme leaves
    ... 2 tsp tomato paste
    Hot pepper to taste
    A few tbsp of water

    Place the corned beef into a medium-sized bowl and break up with a fork in preparation for cooking. Sprinkle with lime juice.

    Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Sauté the corned beef with the onion and thyme for five to six mins. Stir in the tomato paste and crushed hot peppers to taste.

    Add one to three tbsp of water for desired consistency and continue to cook, stirring.

    Cover, reduce heat and cook for about 10 min.

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."
