Bows on the bow: Boats do it up for season of parades


BY BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Decorated vessels floating along the waterways can
only mean one thing it must be holiday time South
Florida-style.
The tradition of holding boaf parades dates back sever-
al decades and is still going strong, judging by the response
from crowds.
'Thousands of people line the parade route," said Rob
Larson, co-chair of the Boynton-Delray Holiday Boat Parade
and a board member of the Marine Industries of Palm Beach
County. "It's mind boggling."
The Boynton-Delray procession, which sets sail for its
35th year on Friday, Dec. 8, is one of several parades that
folks can view either from their own boats or standing:.
along the shoreline.
Organizers for this year'slineup say they are planning
to give onlookers the usual dazzling display of sights, with
themes that range from Broadway shows to honoring the
U.S. Coast Guard.
For boat owners, it's a chance to get into the holiday spir-
it and show off their craft. Many of the parades have prizes
that are awarded in different categories.
The events are an opportunity for charitable giving
too. At the last year's Holiday Boat Parade of the Palm
Beaches, the Toys for Tots drive collected more than 6,000
donations, said Mark Lang, a member of the procession's
organizing committee.
Volunteers will again collect toys at the llth Annual
Holiday Boat Parade of the Palm Beaches, scheduled to begin
6 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 2. Boaters will travel from Peanut


Pholo',ourle,. Caplain Morgan
I ighltd Boal Parade
December is boat parade
season in South Florida.
Holiday revelers have
their pick. Among them:
the 16th Annual Schooner
Wharf Bar/Captain Morgan
Lighted Boat Parade in Key
West taking place 8 p.m.
Saturday, Dec. 16 in the Key
West Bight and Harbor.


Island, north up the Intracoastal Waterway to Jonathan's
Landing. Some 40 to 50 vessels are expected to participate in
the event organized by the Marine Industries Association of
the Palm Beaches.
The 2006 procession will also include a traveling fire-
works display and the addition of a decorated homeowners
competition. Residences will be judged the night of the
parade. The contest is open to multifamily complexes and any


other buildings lining the route. Entry is free and prizes will
be awarded, Lang said.
For more information on the Palm Beach parade call 561-
845-9010, or visit www.pbboatparade.com.
To enter the decorated homeowners competition contact

Group donates dinghies to students with disabilities


O


BY BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
A program that provides sailing experiences to students
with disabilities can reach out to more youngsters with the
addition of 14 new dinghies to its fleet. *
The boats were christened during a ceremony in early
November at Oleta River State Park in North Miami Beach,
where on-water classes are conducted by the Miami-Dade
County Public Schools.
There are now 22 dinghies at the park. Another seven
dinghies are housed at the Coconut Grove Sailing Club in
Coconut Grove, where the marine academy also holds on-
water classes. The dinghies at both sites are equipped to
accommodate students who are physically and mentally chal-
lenged.
The fleet's expansion comes as no surprise to Billy Joel,
an Ayentura city commissioner who heads the Anchors Away
committee.
Since its formation three years ago, the group has been
responsible for purchasing all 29 dinghies used by the stu-
dents at Oleta River State Park and the Coconut Grove Sailing
Club. The committee, which operates under the auspices of
the Aventura Marketing Council, has raised about $110,000
from private donations and corporate sponsors, Joel said.
"The support has been there from the beginning. People
see this and they want to be a part of it."

The new fleet of

dinghies is ready to
set sail.


The committee also recently received a donation of two
shipping containers to store the boats at Oleta. Each unit is 40
feet long and can hold up to 20 dinghies.
The two containers were refurbished in October by stu-
dents from North Miami Beach Senior High School and
employees from The Continental Group, a statewide property
management and services company in Hollywood.
Students from the high school's art club painted a mural
on one of the storage units depicting a beach scene with sea


turtles, a sandy shore and palm trees.
"We're thrilled to be able to lend a helping hand," said
Gloria Romero Roses, director of community relations for
The Continental Group. "The students are amazing artists."
The Anchors Away committee intends to keep raising
funds to buy more boats. A standard, specially built dinghy
costs $3,800. Models with electronic controls that allow quad-

By hook or crook, you can catch those elusive snook


BY ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Fishing Writer
Persistence pays off in fishing.
Okay, you say, but when?
Answer: sooner or later. Let's stick with it, either
because the fish haven't started biting or they haven't
stopped. Don't quit before they quit.
Here we describe the sort of persistence that some-
body watching from shore might mistake for plain stu-
pid stubbornness.
It would be a reasonable guess. Look, that guy's casting
into a 20-knot wind. It blows every toss sideways or back at
his face, or into whatever bushery is within his diminished
range. And he's using a fly rod, for heaven's sake.
Twenty knots? That's only between casts. He tries to
time one for a lull and swoosh! A gust, sudden as a viper,
blows his line into a curve of slack so wide he won't be
able to set the hook if he gets a bite. "That had to be 30
knots," he mutters.
"At least," his partner agrees. From the way the tree-
tops are swaying, you'd guess a dance band is playing
back in the mangroves.
A bite? Right. Our fishermen cast and retrieve hour
after hour, with nothing but weeds impaled on their hooks.
Still they persist. If last night's full moon rises again,
with no fish yet in the cooler, they may stay out to wel-
come it. They can still hear a wise friend's words, spoken
that morning at dawn.
"The fish were up all night eating, because they could
see in the moonlight. They won't be hungry today."
That makes sense. When you stay up all night, are you
fit for sporting competition in the morning?
I could have imagined this story, except that it's true.
The crowd I was with, a flyfishing club on a November
weekend outing to Everglades City and Chokoloskee,
handled it gracefully.
That wasn't easy, for in addition to the full moon and
a cold front with aggressive north and northeast winds, our
three-day adversaries included dirty water and tides so.low
that mangrove roots were fully exposed much of each day.
When the roots are submerged, snook lurk there to
ambush whatever prey saunters past. When the tide falls

below root level, the fish will go away. Try whistling and
calling "Here snooky, snooky."
No, it does not work. Neither does anything else.
In the Ten Thousand Islands, where fresh water flows
from the upland Everglades through the mangroves and out
into Florida Bay, snook fishing usually is great once you
find the fish. Most of us were fishing for them, hoping to
take a keeper on fly before the season closes on Dec. 15.
The first day, only a few runts were caught. They must
have been crowded out of the all-night moonlit banquet.
On the second day, Larry Robinson and I decided to
cast our lot and our lines elsewhere. We left Everglades
City, towing his 17-foot flats skiff north to Tamiami Trail
and then west 10 miles to Port of the Islands.
The wind there wasn't going to be weaker, but we
hoped the water would be cleaner. It was, and bottoms-up
low as well. We fished Fakha Union Canal from the mari-
na south to Fakahatchee Bay, too far behind to catch up to
the outgoing tide. We turned and fished our way back,
ahead of the incoming tide. By then the wind had shifted
from northerly to easterly, so we had a lee shore.

This snook, a 28-inch keeper,
fell into the author's custody
near the end of an almost-futile
day's flyfishing. Lesson: change
location, change lure, change
tactics, keep on fishing.







Fat lot of good that did. With nearly all the tree cover still
above water, there were few roots for fish to lurk among.
Larry caught two snook and a jack, all bait-bucket size.
Without a catch of my own, I began to sense the pres-
ence of fishing's official enemy, the skunk.
Late in the day, with mangroves submerging at last,
we decided to try the finger channels at Port of the Islands.
Well, they are fairly wide and not very long so maybe we
should call them thumb channels. Some are bordered on
both sides by dwellings and docks, others by mangroves
on one side. We went for those.
In a moderately sheltered lee at the easternmost end
of one, we began getting strikes from little snook over-
matched by our tackle, but in good enough number to
chase the skunk. Little fish are made by big fish.
Presuming there were some around, we kept flinging flies.
We chose white ones because the water is routinely tan-
nin-darkened by the mangroves, clean but without much
subsurface visibility.
Casting anything in such a situation requires adjust-

Humane methods to catch and release snook unharmed


BY ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Fishing Writer
Florida's open season on
snook closes Dec.15, giving fans of
that wonderful gamefish a fine
opportunity to devise and test new,
less harmful ways to catch and
release them. Yes, you are allowed
to catch snook out of season, but if
you're lucky and skilled enough to
catch a keeper, you must set it free.
If you keep it, you're poaching.
Arnold Markowitz Is poaching a good way to cook a
snook? Perhaps, but only until Dec.
15 and not again until the season re-opens on Feb. 1. Over
here, when allowed, we usually grill or broil. Never fry a
snook. It isn't respectful.
Also over here, we've been practicing what we've been
preaching flattening the barbs on lure hooks, cutting tre-
ble hooks down to doubles and singles or replacing them
outright with single hooks, trying to figure out what works
and what doesn't.
The idea is to reduce hooking and handling injuries that
reduce a released fish's chances of surviving. For all the
ferocity that makes it so popular, the snook is a rather deli-
cate creature, sort of like a boxer with fists of stone but a
glass jaw.
That is why there's a closed season in winter, even
though snook don't spawn then. They can't stand cold, same
as many of us who moved to Florida from Montreal and


U1.Bh1


New Jersey. At least we saved a few warm clothes. Snook
never owned snuggies.
When water temperature drops below 55 degrees F they
float to the surface, grow faint and begin dying. Thus the
closed season. It doesn't discourage all fishing, but it fends
off people who won't fish for anything they can't keep and
those who can't resist the easy way to get some.
Here's our southeast coast snook expert, state fish biol-
ogist Lisa Ockelmann-LoBello:
"Back in the day, harvest reports were really good in the
winter because they would literally go out in the bays and
scoop them up, because they get very lethargic and are real-
ly open to poaching. Some days you can literally gill them
out of the water with your hands, from what I have heard.
On colder days in the winter when we have full sun, you can
find them in very shallow water, sunning themselves to
warm up."
Snook with access to tidal creeks and rivers, unobstruct-
ed by salinity dams or flood control locks, will swim
upstream until they find survivable water temperature. There
they'll pitch camp to wait for warmer times back in the bays.
A little further on, we'll discuss fishing for them there.
Right now, let's update our ongoing test of modified hook
arrangements on lures. Even with the experiments unrefined
and incomplete, here's one suggestion I can give as firmly as
an order: If you use lures with three sets of treble hooks,

remove the middle set, no matter what you fish for.
Many have a third set of hooks in the middle. Those do
little to no good, but plenty of harm. They jab a mouth-
hooked fish around the eyes and gills potentially dis-
abling injuries that are indefensible when you must release
the fish.
The extra manhandling it takes to remove extra hooks
from a fish keeps it out of water too long, increases your
chances of dropping it on the deck and rubs protective slime
off its scales. Back in the water that fish is in trouble, seri-
ously weakened. It's a jungle down there. Only the strong
survive.
Ockelmann-LoBello and other experts have found that
popular lip-grip tools like the Boga-Grip can harm fish, too
- or rather that we harm them when we let the fish dangle
while we squint at the built-in scale and pose for photos.
That stretches and damages the cartilage between the
fish's lips and gills. It swims away looking okay, but its abil-
ity to eat and breathe is seriously hampered. Use the gripper
to get control of the fish at boatside, but then support its
weight with your wet hands.

Mutiny outside

the movies

BY MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront News Columnist
The titles of some old and rather inter-
esting movies have become available in
DVD during the last few years. In my circle
of friends they are among the gifts of choice
during the holiday season.
As you might expect, sea adventures
remain one of my favorite genres. In fact,
there is an esoteric sub-genre that I enjoy
even more sea adventure movies that
include courtroom drama scenes and
legal issues.
Although maritime law-themed movies
are rather rare, three of my personal
favorites come to mind:
"A High Wind In Jamaica," a pirate
movie with Anthony Quinn and James
Coburn; "The Caine Mutiny" with
Humphrey Bogart, and "Mutiny On The
Bounty" with Charles Laughton and Clark
Gable (please do not even consider thever-
sion with Marlon Brando oh, the horror!)
SAs you can see, two of these films
deal with the subject of mutiny. Yet, while
the term conjures up a very dramatic pic-
ture in people's minds, it is very much a
legal concept.
The crime of mutiny does not, as
romantically believed, require a conspira-
cy to take over a ship. As a broad defini-
tion, mutiny is the act of conspiring to dis-
obey an order that a group of similarly sit-
uated individuals (typically members of
the military or the crew of any ship even if
they are civilians) is legally obliged to
obey. Therefore, mutinies can occur on
both land as well as at sea.
Both the United States and Great
Britain have put laws against mutiny in their
military codes. During wartime in 18th cen-
tury Britain, minor acts of insubordination
by soldiers or sailors could be regarded as
mutiny and the perpetrators could suffer the
punishment of death.


Speak

Easy


Lotta Luv equals

'lotta nerve'


But in the U.S., codes regarding mutiny
speak of the "intent to usurp or override
lawful military authority." It is the "lawful"
part that mutineers of the past have general-
ly used as a defense, as was brought out in
part in the "Caine Mutiny," which by the
way, is a work of fiction and not based on a
true story despite urban legend.
In fact, historically there has never
been a successful mutiny aboard ja U.S.
warship. The two largest mutinies that
occurred in the U.S. military were actually
incidents in the army during World War I
and II, and both are now considered the
result of alleged treatment of African-
American soldiers in the segregated forces.
On the other hand, the British Navy has
known successful mutinies aboard its ves-
sels. The best known is an incident on the
H.M.A.V Bounty under the command of
William Bligh.
Bligh was actually a rather remarkable
figure. Before taking command of the
Bounty, Bligh had been a trusted assistant to
Capt. James Cook on his geographic expe-
ditions around the world, and his naval tac-
tics were considered instrumental in several
victories against the French.
Although he and 18 loyal seamen were
set adrift from the Bounty in a lifeboat,
Bligh was able to guide them to safety in a
41-day, 3,618-mile voyage while only los-
ing one crewman. Following his return to
England, Bligh again proved himself an
excellent commander in the war against
Napoleon. And, in his later years, Bligh's
engineering skills were demonstrated when
he redesigned part of the port in Dublin to
prevent erosion.
Yet, despite his talents in war, science,
and navigation there was one area where
Bligh proved a total failure people skills.
A few years after the Bounty incident,
I, !'I li' Ia Wai\ lal',' .


BY JENNIFER HEIT
Waterfront News Editor
Peter Lindner has navigated much of
the world in the last 30 years: through
Great Britain, the Baltic Sea, Cuba, even
sailing from Germany to the U.S. -
mostly without mishap.
Then his 40-foot offshore boat,
Pelican, became the victim of an appar-
ent hit and run. Lindner and his wife Lisa
were at their home in Hamburg, Germany
at the time, packing for their annual win-
ter exodus to Fort Lauderdale.
At 11:40 p.m. on Oct. 21, a passing
sport fish rammed into Lindner's boat
while it was docked at Cooley's Landing,
a Fort Lauderdale city marina. The sport
fish hit the boat's starboard side, destroy-
ing Lindner's dinghy, which was attached
to the stern vessel davit.
The commotion jarred Howard
Rosenthal, Lindner's closest neighbor,
and also the bridge tender on duty at the
Seventh Avenue Bridge who watched the
event unfold from behind binoculars.
Rosenthal ran on deck and yelled at
the boat's operator, described as a "white
male" according to a report issued by the
Fort Lauderdale Police Department, to
dock his vessel. Instead, the boat took
off, heading eastbound on the New River.
Lindner manages to laugh as he
describes being told later that the sport
fish's operator was kissing his female
companion when the accident occurred.
Both witnesses noted the name of the
roughly 20-foot boat: Lotta Luv.
The problem is that no one could
catch the boat's registration number,
leaving police with little to go on.
Total damage is estimated at just under
$9,000. Lindner has already replaced the
dingy. A marine surveyor's report states
there was compression damage to the stem
rail, stanchions and the davits, including the


solar panel rail supports.
Structurally, the boat is sailable.
Since nobody was aboard at the time,
there were no injuries. That makes the
accident a second degree misdemeanor.
Florida law requires a boater hitting
any structure to file a report with local
law enforcement, says Lt. Ed Cates,
assistant boating safety coordinator for
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission. "If they only
do damage to their own boat they're sup-
posed to report," he said.
Lindner, 67, is a retired pharmacist
and grandfather with a slight built and a
pleasant German accent. He speaks in
polite tones despite his agitation over
recent events.
"I don't look 67 but today I feel like
80," he said while running around town
on his bike, handing out handwritten
fliers that request help in finding the
owner of the boat that hit his.
Though he has filed an insurance
claim, he is driven by a basic notion that
the person responsible for causing the
damage should be the one to pay for it.
Why did Lotta Luv not have a
Lotta Guts?
Lindner speculates: "Maybe he isn't
insured or is too young. Maybe he has no
money. Maybe he's afraid he'd lose his
drivers license."
during the winter, Lindner and his
wife live aboard their vessel at Cooley's
Landing. They feel at home in the mari-
na and the community they find there.
"We come to Fort Lauderdale
because we like the weather, the people,"
he explained.
The routine has worked well for the
past seven years. While in Fort
Lauderdale the couple visits friends.

Boater left to pick up the pieces after hit and run


They make trips to the Abacos and the Exumas, returning
to Fort Lauderdale for boat service and supplies.
These days Lindner is busy arranging for boat repairs.
He hopes work will be completed by the end of year,
delaying his trip to the Bahamas for about a month.
People, he says, have been sympathetic, but so far no
one has identified the boat's operator.
"It's a bad character trait to run," he says. "Maybe I
can get money from insurance but this man shouldn't go
away without penalties."
In 2005, 20 hit and run arrests were made in the state,

Mutiny had a positive side
f1ji'i';ll tf.l IIl\v 1i;l [lllli'; i bii ll
the British Admiralty again made the mistake of appointing
Bligh to a position where he had no one to answer to: They
made him governor of New South Wales, Australia.
In less than two years, the landed subjects of Sydney and
the very militia commissioned to protect Bligh had stormed
his office and escorted him to a ship bound for England. Bligh
attempted to muster support from the other appointed
Australian governors to take back his office, but they basical-
ly found him as obnoxious as the citizens of Sydney.
Following the Australian mutiny, the British Navy gave
William Bligh a desk job where he spent much of his time
writing his memoirs.
Mutiny is viewed historically "as the gravest and most
criminal of offenses..." But the history of William Bligh
demonstrates that occasionally the causation of a mutiny can
be very multisided.
All the best wishes for the season!

according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission. Once Lindner's accident report gets to
Cates' office, it will be filed among this year's boating
accidents, to be reviewed at a later date as part of 2006's
total boating accident picture.
Cates says his office will actively look for the boat,
though the more time that goes by, the less chance Lotta
Luv will be located.
Some visitors might blame Fort Lauderdale's image
- deserved or simply decreed as an aloof place whose
self-absorbed offspring flaunt spotty values. But this man-
nerly boater does not jump to assumptions. "For sure you
find same thing in Germany," he says.
Very possibly Lotta Luv will cause a Lotta Accidents
in the future. If so, the boat's name will inevitably tuin up
again, possibly in connection with more serious conse-
quences, Cates said.
Then the owner might want to change his boat's name
to Lotta Trouble.

Lifelong boater recalls 'treasure' hunt on Biscayne Bay


Who's who among South Florida boaters? Meet the peo-
ple working and enjoying the boating lifestyle in our new
monthly feature that asks readers to share just what it is that
makes boating in South Florida special.
If you would like to tell your story, please e-mail
editor@waterfront-news.com. Use the words "Boater's pro-
file" in the subject line and include your name and phone
number where you can be reached during the day.

Meet boater Ted Snider, 46, Miami Beach resident for 6
1/2 years; previously from Morris, Ill.
Marital status: Unmarried, living with longtime girl-
friend, no children.
Current boat: A 46-foot Sea Ray powerboat named Deco
Gecko, docked in Bayside Marina in Miami. His previous
boat was destroyed in Hurricane Wilma.
Previous boats: Several 17 to 19-foot runabouts, a 25-foot
go-fast Baha and a couple of 46-foot boats.
Profession: Certified U.S. Coast Guard master captain,
owner of the Deco Gecko, a boat chartering business, in
Miami Beach. In an earlier life he trained nuclear power plant
operators.
When did you start boating?
Literally I was 3-years old. I grew up on the rivers and
lakes in Illinois. I moved here for the boating. Definitely it
exceeded my expectations. I was one of those guys who start-
ed with a smaller boat and kept buying-bigger.
How much of your current life is spent aboard your
boat?
One to two days a week.
Favorite boating destination?
We go to the sandbar in Stiltsville, (in Biscayne Bay).
It's kind of infamous. It's a very tight channel. The first 1,000
feet is only about 5 feet deep, Location: about half mile west
of the southernmost stilt, (ICW Statute Mile 1100).
We go there because it's more of an adult sandbar.
The depth of the water at high tide is 3 to 5 feet deep.
With the current, it's not conducive to having children
out there.
It's like a mini regatta with anywhere from 20 to 50

boats. The crowd is from [age] 20 to my age group. We have
contests over who can put together the sexiest crew.
What boat has been your favorite boat out of all those
you've owned?
The present 46-foot Sea Ray. But I never had one I did-
n't like.
What has been your most interesting social occasion
on the water?
A: Two years ago I did a treasure hunt for my women
friends who have children. I invited them all out on the boat,
about a dozen kids. Before they got there, I took a dinghy to
Monument Island and buried treasure in a t )x, like Mardi
Gras beads and candy. I wrapped everything up and made a
treasure map.
On the water, I made up a story about how a boat had to
lighten it's load after being caught in a storm, so it buried its
treasure and left, never to return. I gave the kids potato chips
to eat while I was giving them the safety speech of do's and
don't. Then I pretended that I found the treasure map in this
bag in potato chips.
.We dropped anchor and took the dinghy to shore when
we came to Monument Island. The treasure map said take so


many paces this way, so many paces that way. The kids found
the spot where the treasure was buried. Then they all shared
the booty.
Where else do you like to go?
I've been to the Keys, the Bahamas. We like to go day
boating. I go with friends, business associates. Recently I did
a charter with all lesbians. We were singing Alanis Morissette
and Indio Girls' songs all day.
What is the farthest you've ever sailed?
Abacos, Bahamas
What do you like best about boating in Florida?
Warm air, warm water.
What do you like least?
Ocean waves. We hardly .ever go out there. The
[Biscayne] bay rules. Thank God for the bay.
What has been your scariest moment on the water?
I lost an engine in Port Everglades Cut with a very
strong tidal flow and a cruise ship bearing down on us. He
was blowing multiple warning blasts with his horn and we
were directly in his path. The ship was less than 500 feet
away when I was able to restart the engine and move the
boat out of the way.
Up until that moment it was pretty quiet with that crew,
after that, the real celebration began as everyone thought they
had narrowly escaped death proving again how precious
time on Earth really is.
What draws you to boating?
Of all the human experiences we have in life, few rival
the feeling one gets when riding on a luxury yacht on open
water.
Maybe it's that sense of adventure within us all, or it's the
feeling of warm ocean air blowing on your face, at sunset, or
perhaps it's the sense of self-importance knowing you have
attained a level of success few in the world will ever know.
Whatever the reason, many people already know it's
worth the cost.

Manatee sightings in winter l that s k ar DECEMBER 2006

Manatee sightings in winter signal that snook are nearby


injuries, let's have them. The more people work at this, the
more released fish will survive.
Now to catch some winter snook.
While coastal waters remain warm, look by man-
groves, boat docks and .bridges along the Atlantic and
Gulf Intracoastal Waterways. Almost any section of
Everglades National Park's Ten Thousand Islands, the
Tampa Bay area and most tidal river mouths are worth a
look and a few casts.
There are small year-around populations in some
southeast coastal canals, often several miles from saltwa-
ter. Lake Okeechobee's rim canal has a small permanent
settlement of snook near Moore Haven, where bass fisher-
men catch them by accident.
Let's say the second cold front in a week has just blown
through and it's mighty nippy outside. We don't have a reli-
able water thermometer, but we're clever and know how to
interpret clues.
Suppose the mangrove shoreline where we usually
find snook is deserted. Our swimming pool heater seems
to be overmatched. Children walking to school are bun-
dled up. A friend who lives beside a canal calls, because
we've asked her to look, and she reports there are mana-
tees out back.
That nails it, because when water temperatures get
much under 60 in the inshore bays, it's bound to be warmer
someplace up the creek. Snook and manatees act alike.
They go thataway. So must you.
You may not see snook, but manatee sightings will tell
you snook are around. See that distinct circle of flat water?
A manatee's tail made it. See any mangroves or other water
plants close by? Fish there. Also throw low casts under
every dock, a favorite lurking place, and beside and
beneath bridges.
Snook are ambush feeders. They lie in wait and when
something that looks like lunch swims by they jump out
and grab it. You also might find one cruising in open
water, so troll a lure or streamer fly while moving from
place to place.


Photo/Florida Fish & Wildlife Research Inst.
On a snook's translucent mouth, the harsh abrasive lip
surface is scarcely visible. It can sever a leader in seconds,
although a bare thumb grip is safe.
No matter what tackle you're using, tie on a bite leader
- 30-pound test at least between the regular leader and the
lure or bait. A foot or two should be plenty. I've gotten away
with as little as 20-pound, which made me feel very lucky.
As expert snookman Dave Justice told us in last
month's fishing column, most cutoffs by snook happen
because of their toothless but highly abrasive lips, which feel
like a wood file or coarse sandpaper to your touch. They can
cut through even a 50 or 60-pound leader in a few seconds.
That makes it smart to check the end of your leader for
abrasion after every bite. If it's anything but smooth, clip
that part off.
In the closeup photo of a snook's translucent mouth
shown here, the abrasive texture is barely visible. In the
other picture, the opaque white portion of the leader the
only part that's distinct against the gray background is where
the snook in the accompanying story lipped it. That is 40-
pound-test fluorocarbon, very close to breaking.
Because snook have elongated mouths, they often fully

engulf their prey with a single bite. If your hook's in the
prey, your leader is caught between the fish's lips.
Trying to replicate the effect, I clamped a folded-over
sheet of 60-grit sandpaper in a vise and drew a foot or so of
40-pound fluorocarbon leader through it. It took 100 strokes,
back and forth, to sever the leader. The snook I've lost
worked a lot faster.
A bite tip should be at least twice as strong as the leader.
To connect them, use either a loop-to-loop technique or -
better, but slower double the leader and tie it to the bite
tip with a blood knot or uni-knot.

A fine fishing writer
No Florida fishing writer should end his piece this
month without a fond memory of Jim Hardie, who died
Oct. 30 at age 75. Hardie retired in 1988 after 20 years as
fishing writer at "The Miami Herald." From 1961-68 he
had covered fishing and hunting for the "Miami News."
After retiring he continued reporting the weekly roundup
of noteworthy catches as a freelancer, directed a fishing
tournament and ran a camp on Lake Okeechobee.
Hardie's first story for "The Herald," a page 1 report
about bogus sailfish trophy mounts sold to gullible tourists
by charter captains, inspired ethical reforms in an anything-
goes segment of offshore fishing.
That expose resulted in verbal attacks, which Hardie
took with characteristic good humor. He was easily amused
- possibly never more than when "The Herald" posed all
its male columnists in jacket and tie for new column header
photos. Hardie's picture had always been informal.
On the first day the new one was printed, he could hard-
ly get off the phone. I was walking past his desk when he fin-
ished a call and burst into laughter.
"Look at these," he said, showing me a stack of
angry messages from readers. "They think I've gone
high-hat on them."
Never a chance of that. Jim Hardie was good for the
sport of fishing. We all owe him thanks and a salute.

Dade issues? Contact Arnold Markowitz at this e-mail

The classes do more than give children in the county's
school system a chance to get out on the water.
"These kids aren't going on recreational type field trips,"
said Jayne Greenberg, district director for physical education

Schools. "They are going on educational field trips. If you're
S a student sitting in a classroom learning about cloud forma-


tions and wind currents, the outings give them real life expe-

Eventually, the goal is to provide students with
greater access by having dinghies at parks countywide,
Greenberg said.

she said.

Teamwork lands snook as season comes


ments. On the bow with his foot-switch
trolling motor, Robinson tried to match
our distance from the shoreline and over-
hanging branches to the effective lengths
of our casts.
The area of water protected from gusts
was narrow, so when perpendicular to
shore we made our casts shorter than we'd
have done without wind. When parallel to
shore, we could stretch them out.
With about two hours of daylight left,
we switched to another thumb channel
where one side was mangrove from end to
end, with a back channel connecting to the
next one. The wind was blowing harder
now, and Larry's trolling motor foot was
busier keeping us in correct positions.
Moving parallel to the mangrove shore,
no more than 25 feet distant, we tossed our
flies forward and sternward, trying to keep
our backcasts out of the strongest wind.
Larry's fly was a surface streamer, mine a
lightly-weighted swimmer sinking if I
gave it a few seconds of drop time, coming


back to us shallow on the retrieve with an
intermediate sinking line.
We caught more small snook there, a
little more frequently and a little less little
than at the previous spot. The tide was
close to high, giving inference that bigger
ones lay between mangrove roots, waiting
for appetizers to swim by.

I was certain the fish
would fit in the legal
keeper slot, 27 to 35
inches, but still I
measured it 28 inches
with a fraction to spare.

We tried to lay our casts as close to the
roots as possible without snagging. We
wanted to be sure those snook saw our
flies. Another reason was the belief that
fish are lazy and can't be counted on to
chase a bait that has a long head start.
We would need to set our hooks
quickly in case of a strike, and with the


mangroves so close we could not afford
any slack in our lines. If we hooked a good
one, it would try to duck back among the
roots where we'd lose it.
As all that snook lesson stuff was
revolving in our minds, if changed to
when. My line went tight, the rod bent
sharply, I struck back and the fish's long
face poked up through a splash of dark
water, then disappeared below. I pressed
the flyline against the handgrip of the
rod as tightly as I dared, while reeling in
my casting slack with the other hand. I
wanted the reel's stout drag system in
this fight.
In such a setting you don't fight a big
fish with the rod pointed straight up. You
hold it parallel to the water, trying to lead
the fish away from the roots and into open
water. Good thing I remembered that. I
think Larry already was backing the boat
away from the mangroves when I asked
him to do it.
That still left a few underwater haz-
ards for the fish to use against us. The
opposite side of that canal is lined with


to a close
docks. Our own boat presented three
opportunities for escape the hull itself,
the outboard engine at the stern and the
trolling motor at the. bowi. The snook
seemed to notice, and died beneath us.
More teamwork now: Larry held the
boat in mid-channel, giving me space to
avert surges toward either side. I dipped
my rod tip under water, the better to keep
the snook close to the middle of the boat
and away from the motor until I could pry
it out from under.
At last I was able to hold the fish on
the surface until Larry reached down with
his lip gripper and got it on the second
attempt. I was certain the fish would fit in
the legal keeper slot, 27 to 35 inches, but
still I measured it 28 inches with a frac-
tion to spare.
"Snook for dinner?" I asked Larry.
"Up to you," he said.
I had kept and eaten only two other
snook, years enough apart to forget how
they tasted except that they were really,
really good.
Into the cooler it went.
