Lionfish invasion…Let’s Fight Back!

The sport of spearfishing is governed by federal and state regulations, and we have the same size and creel limits as anglers. Spearfishing has been found to be the most environmentally friendly form of fishing due to being highly selective, having no by-catch, causing no habitat damage, nor creating stress or harm to protected endangered species. These facts prove a spearfisherman can harvest their catch without doing any harm to the reef, but can he actually help the health of the reef? Absolutely! The newest target species for us gulf coast hunters is the invasive lionfish. The last few years has seen an explosion in the local population of these beautiful, but extremely harmful fish.

The Gulf Coast Economy is driven by its Natural Resources

I admit it--I’m a big outdoor enthusiast. The happiest memories I have were spent enjoying nature and just feeling at peace surrounded by its beauty. Here in Alabama, we are blessed with an abundance of outdoor activities year round. Many of us in this area hunt, fish, bird watch or simply enjoy lounging at the beach. I think we all share a love for our outdoor hobbies, whatever they may be. But, we may not realize the tremendous economic impact these nature-based activities have on our local economy.Aug 1st, 2013

Hobie Mirage Islands: A New Way to Fish

Whoever said that sailing and hardcore off shore fishing are mutually exclusive sports? Hobie certainly did not. Enter the Hobie Mirage Tandem Island and Mirage Adventure Island. Pedal, paddle or sail them…they are human powered, no motor necessary. marlin, tuna, dorado… off shore pelagic fishing of any kind…the Island’s are a “New Way to Fish” from Hobie. The combination of the MirageDrive® pedal system, rudder, rollerfurling main sail, retracting akas and amas on each side and the hull design ensure a stable and fast ride and enable anglers to cover long distances at trolling speeds. Both boats are proudly made in the U.S.A.Aug 1st, 2013

Proper Planning is the Cornerstone to Success

As you may know, the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council recently held a series of public hearings to get feedback on their Draft Initial Comprehensive Plan: Restoring the Gulf Coast’s Ecosystem and Economy.

Now that our short red snapper season has come and gone it is time to shift back into amberjack mode. These are the hardest fighting fish species that we target as spearfisherman. It is because of their strength they are called “Pez Fuerte” south of the border. In English it means “strong fish”! Jul 1st, 2013
