Florida Fish and Wildlife
Fishing Forecasts for 2010
It is that time of year again. Freshwater anglers are taking
advantage of the last of the winter crappie action and really
looking forward to the spring spawn of bass and bream.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
biologists have completed their analyses of the 2009 fishing
data to come up with a list of top fishing sites for 2010.
Information, along with fishing tips, is available to improve
your fishing success at MyFWC.com/Fishing (click on "fishing
sites and forecasts").
January's cold snap set several records and caused sig-
nificant fish kills in freshwater areas. Fortunately for the
resource and most users, those kills were primarily limited
to nonnative fishes such as tilapia and suckermouth cat-
fish. Thus, with the possible exception of peacock bass in
Southeast Florida, the cold snap should not have harmed the
overall freshwater fishing prognosis for 2010.

In Florida, the Fishing Capital of the World, with more
than 7,700 named lakes and 12,000 miles of fishable rivers,
streams and canals, you're never far from an opportunity
to relax and wet a line. Your recreational time spent on the
water communing with nature and relaxing is time well used.
Studies have shown that both children and adults who take
time out to enjoy active nature-based recreation lead healthi-
er, happier and smarter lives (www.GetOutdoorsFlorida.org).
Remember, if you catch a big fish, it may be eligible for rec-
ognition in the "Big Catch" Angler Recognition Program. The
FWC recognizes 33 different species of freshwater sportfish
in the program, and has extra incentives for catching a vari-
ety of species. If you submit a photo with the application, you
may also see yourself published in the Fish Busters' Bulletin
one day. Check out a copy of the Florida Fishing Regulations

The Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC)
has extended its execu-
tive order that temporar-
ily suspends certain
saltwater fishing regula-
tions to allow people and
local communities to
legally dispose of dead
fish found in the water
and on the shore. This
order initially was is-
sued on Jan. 15 in re-
sponse to numerous
reports of dead saltwa-
ter fish killed by the re-
cold-weather period in
The order was set to
expire on Feb. 1. Howev-
er, the FWC decided to
extend this order
through Feb. 28, because
the agency continues to
receive reports of dead
saltwater fish in many
areas around the state.
The order removes
specific harvest regula-
tions for all dead saltwa-
ter fish of any species
that have died as a result
of prolonged exposure to
cold weather in Florida
waters. The order also
allows people to collect
dead saltwater fish from
Florida's shoreline and
from the water by hand,
cast net, dip net or seine.
People who take
dead saltwater fish un-
der the provisions of
this order may not sell,
trade or consume such
fish, and the dead fish
must immediately be
disposed of in compli-
ance with local safety,
health and sanitation re-
quirements for such dis-
In addition, people
who take dead saltwater
fish under the provisions
of this order are not re-
quired to possess a salt-
water fishing license,
and all fish taken under
the provisions of this or-
der shall be those that
have died as a result of

iltt bout The
Super Bowl Sunday has always
been on a Sunday and is usually the
last Sunday in January. However, for
the first time in it's history, it was
held in February = February 3,
2002. The reason is, due to the Sep-
tember 11, 2001 attacks, the televi-
sion schedules were all delayed by
one week. The super bowl was
shown on the Fox network and not
on one of the main television sta-
tions ABC, CBS or NBC also. It was
also held on Sunday, February 1st
for 2004. And, on Sunday, February
6, 2005. I see a new pattern!
So, I'm not sure why, but it now
seems that the Super Bowl has been
set for the first Sunday in February
for the next few years as follows:
February 7, 2010
February 6, 2011
February 5, 2012
It is solely a United States cele-
bration. Just like in the old old days
when the old king was dethroned
and a new king crowned at the start
of the new year, the Super Bowl de-
termines who wears the crown in
football after a long series of elimi-
The opponents are the winning
teams from the AFL (American
Football League) and the NFL (Na-
tional Football League) that play
each other at a pre-selected city
(usually in a warmer climate or one
with a covered stadium).
Super Bowl Sunday has be-
come more than just a champi-
onship play-off event. In some
cases, it is a national holiday. It is
said that even the criminals take Su-
per Bowl Sunday off. LOL :) In 1985,
when the San Franciso 49ers played
the Super Bowl in Palo Alto, CA, the
crime rate in San Francisco dropped
For some wives, it seems that
the Super Bowl has gone on forever!
But, it actually all began on January
15, 1967 in the Los Angeles Coliseum
with the Green Bay Packers beating
the Kansas City Chiefs 35-10.
How the Super Bowl got started?
How did the name "Super
Bowl" get started? Originally, many
suggested it be titled, "The Big One"
or "The Final Game." But a Texas fi-
nancier and owner of the Kansas
City Chiefs, Lamar Hunt, came up
with the idea of calling it "The Su-
per Bowl" after watching his daugh-
ter play with a Super Ball a small,
high-bouncing ball very popular at
that time. Ironic, that a woman was
responsible for naming this well-
loved, beloved male annual event!
The games have always been
identified with Roman numerals
rather than numbers. It wasn't until
Super Bowl IV in 1970 that the title,
"Super Bowl" actually appeared on
It took a few years before the
pre-game show became a tradition.
In 1976, Super Bowl X broadcasted it
on television. And Super Bowl XII in
1978 was the first indoor game and
drew the largest crowd at that time
to have ever watched a sporting
event on television also. Super Bowl
XV in 1981, displayed a huge yellow
ribbon (bow) over the main en-
trance of the Louisiana
Superdome in New Or-
leans to commemorate
the 52 Ameri-
who had just
by Iran after
444 days in
made sure that

a big razzle
The first pre-
game show released
4,000 pigeons and continu-
ing pre-game shows have featured
top Hollywood celebrities, jets with
tailing plumes of dyed smoke of
red, white and blue.
Another tradition of the pre-
game show is who will sing the "Star
Spangeled Banner"? It is usually
sung by a well-known American pop
singer. Usually, but there have been
Winners, Losers & Gamblers
The NFL's Green Bay Packers
dominated winning the Super Bowl
for the few few years. Then, the
New York Jets and their infamous
star quarterback, Joe Namath aka
"Broadway Joe" for his celebrity sta-
tus, won Super Bowl III, proving
that the NFL and AFL could com-
pete equally and increasing it's pop-
ularity even more.
More popular = more money!
The price of television advertising
during the Super Bowl went from
$85,000 a mnute to $200,000. And by
Sper Bowl XiX, advertising was
around $1 million. Today a Super
Bowl ad will run $2 million or more,
depending on how long, and what
time slot of the game it's shown. It
is estimated that 45% of all US
homes have TV sets and tune in to
watch the Super Bowl. Today, the
ads and even the half-time show en-
tertainment has become just as im-
portant as the game itself.
Ironically, some advertisers start
running promos of their ads days
before the Super Bowl to promote
their ads because they paid so
much! One example is Apple Com-
puter during Super Bowl XVIII,
with a memorable commercial in-
troducing it's Macintosh. And, if
companies aren't buying commer-
cials, well there is still the subtle ap-
N getting yourself
seen during the
their logos on
hats, mugs, to
as high in the
..io sky as the
Blimp! In some
cases, the US
has used the
SSuper Bowl as a
for it's bicen-
tion in 1976.
Bowl Sunday is
because it is al-
ways held on a
Sunday. Ironically, religious leaders
have never complained about it.
Norman Vincent Peale is quoted as
saying, "If Jesus were alive today,
He would be at the Super Bowl."
Even some of the US Presidents get
involved in the game, recommend-
ing plays before hand, and sending
congratulations to the winning
team by telephone.
It has become a tradition in
many groups such as clubs, bars, of-
fices and schools (colleges) to place
bets on the Super Bowl. How the bet-
ting is done varies. Some do it on a
"point spread" between the two
scores. Sometimes people draw
slips of paper with numerical out-
comes and the owner of the correct
score will win. This is popular be-
cause it gives everyone a chance to
win and it's not necessarily based on
knowledge of any team. There are
also "Football Boards" in which
there is a huge board with numbers
along the top from 0 to 9 and along
the side 0 to 9.
However, they are covered up
and they aren't sequential. Betters
write their names in a square they
feel is lucky not knowing the co-or-
dinates of that square until all bets
are placed. Once the card is filled
with bets, the side numbers are ex-
posed (usually taped up) and then
players can see their co-ordinates.
An example is if you picked a
square with 0 on top and 7 at bottom.
The winners are determined by the
score and who has the matching
numbers with the scores for the 1st
half, halftime, 3rd quarter and final.
If you had 0-7 well you could win say
twice? You could win with 0-7 for the
first quarter and by the end of the
game it could be 10-7 or even 20-17.
They key is that the numbers end 0-
7. Now someone else might have 7-0
as their co-ordinates. Some people
feel that 0-0 is the best number be-
cause you start out a winner when
the game begins! :)
Super Bowl Parties
Just a few weeks after New
Years Day, comes the Super Bowl
Sunday. These are typically day-long
events held in private homes with
beer, chips, soda, pizza, and a
potluck supper. The highlight of the
party is the game and finding out
who won the money in the pool or on
the board. Because this is in the
dead of winter, it is also enjoyed by
those who don't even like football
just as an emotional excitement and
social enjoyment break from the
cold winter days.
The Super Bowl Trophy
The trophy is given to the win-
ning team and is named after Vince
Lombardi, whose game plan was "At-
tack, Attack, Attack!" The trophy is
symbolic of the values Lombardi ex-
emplified and the excellence he de-
manded of his players.
As I said earlier, the Green Bay
Packers dominated the Super Bowl
for the first few years under coach
Lombardi. So for many years the
team and the coach symbolized the
game because Lombardi took over
the Green Bay Packers in 1959,
where they had lost almost every
single game during the previous sea-
son. Within 2 years, Lombardi
turned the Green Bay Packers from
losers to winners of the NFL. And
they won the first two Super Bowls
in a row.
Now, other teams have had
greater winning streaks such as the
San Francisco 49ers, the Pittsburgh
Steelers and the Dallas Cowboys, it
is the Green Bay Packers and Vince
Lombardi who stands are as symbol-
izing what the Super Bowl repre-
sents to it's fans and the United
States of America.
