Island Easter arrives, appears golden


By Rick Catlin
Islander Reporter
If you showed up on Anna Maria Island
Saturday, April 7, looking for a room for one
or two nights, you might have had difficulty
finding an accommodation.
In fact, a number of business and accom-
modation owners said this Easter weekend
was the best they have ever observed in terms
of vehicles, people and spending.
"I didn't have anybody call me with rooms
available," said Anna Maria Island Chamber
of Commerce president Mary Ann Brockman.
"It was an incredible weekend."
"Sold out," said David Teitelbaum, owner
of four resorts in Bradenton Beach.
The Rod & Reel Motel in Anna Maria
had one available room April 7, but that was
quickly taken.
"Nothing for a weekly rental," said
Rebecca Barnett of AMI Accommodations
Inc. The company manages more than 200
rentals.
"Really busy," said Signa Bouziane of
Mister Roberts Resort Wear, 5330 Gulf Drive,
Holmes Beach.
"Extremely busy," said Lauren Sato of
Beach Bums outdoors rentals, 427 Pine Ave.,
Anna Maria.
"The weather has cooperated this winter
and I never saw this much walk-in traffic.
(April 7) was great, and we've had our best
February and March ever for sales.
"I think Easter weekend was the best, or
one of the best, weekends we've ever had,"
she said.

The Bradenton Beach City Pier Team
officially shifted focus from routine pier mat-
ters to the proposed reconstruction and piling
replacement project at its monthly meeting at
city hall.
"This is the initial meeting of what we
will call the 2012 city of Bradenton Beach pier
reconstruction project meeting," said Police

Likewise, said Laura Shely of Tide & Moon
Boutique on Pine Avenue.
"We were swamped on Saturday. Very
steady all day and there were hundreds of
people walking the street," she said. \ ly guess
is everybody on Pine Avenue had a great week-
end."
Sponsors of Saturday's Easter bunny visit,
bonnet and egg roll contests on Pine Avenue said
the event was again a big success.

Below-average

hurricane

season forecast
By Rick Catlin
Islander Reporter
There's good news in the weather forecast
this summer for Anna Maria Island and Florida's
coastal areas.
Scientists at Colorado State University
have just released their annual predictions for
the number of tropical storms that will form in
the Atlantic, Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico this
summer and are expecting a below average hur-
ricane season officially June 1 to Nov. 30.
CSU scientists predicted only 10 named
storms would form in the tropics this season,
compared to the seasonal average of 11 named
storms.
Of the 10 storms, only four will become
hurricanes, and just two of those will be con-
sidered major Category III or higher hur-
ricanes.
Scientist and weather forecaster Bill Gray
of CSU said the forecast is based upon several
factors, including the appearance of El Nino in
the eastern Pacific this summer.

house" for vehicle entries, ranging from a Stude-
baker to Austin Healey to a surfer woody wagon
"kit car" that priced out at $100,000 when it

Privateers enjoyed a day-long crowd.
The holiday weekend crescendo came

Maria Island's sunrise service, including all
denominations and all Island churches at the

report on

excess beach
By Rick Catlin
Islander Reporter
Investigators from the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection are still working
on finalizing the consequences for Anna Mafia
after determining the city had violated the terms
of its Bimini Bay-Key Royale Canal dredging
permit.
That permit, an extension of the city's
permit to dredge the Lake LaVista inlet, allowed

HURRICANE CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
El Nino, a weather pattern that creates high-level
winds moving from west to east, will produce a strong
wind shear that is expected to keep most tropical storms
in the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico from becoming
major hurricanes, Gray said.
Additionally, the waters of the tropical Atlantic are
much cooler this year than in previous years. Cool water
slows development of hurricanes, Gray said.
But Dan Noah of the National Weather Service in
Ruskin advised people not to put too much faith in fore-
casts.
"In 1992, we only had seven storms, but one of them
was Hurricane Andrew," he said.
Andrew caused an estimated $43 9 billion worth of
property damage, primarily in the Miami area, and is the
costliest storm in U.S. history, Noah said.
"It only takes one storm to have a major hurricane,"
he said.
The official NWS hurricane forecast for 2012 will
be published the last week of May, Noah said.
Noah noted the NWS has revised the Saffir-Simpson
scale used to measure the strength of hurricanes by the
central wind speed.
The new hurricane ratings are:
Category I 74-95 mph sustained winds at the
center.
Category II 96-110 mph at the center.
Category III 111-129 mph at the center.
Category IV 130-156 mph at the center.
Category V 157-plus mph at the center.
Noah said coastal residents such as those on Anna
Maria Island should take all the usual precautions before
hurricane season begins, even with a below-average pre-
diction.
The most important precaution for any coastal resi-
dent is to know the evacuation route if authorities call
for the Island to be evacuated, and know where they are
going when they do evacuate, he said. Noah also sug-
gested residents have a portable radio and plenty of bat-
teries.
The most active year forAtlantic hurricanes since the
federal government began keeping records in 1851 was
2005, when 28 named storms developed. None struck


Anna Maria Island directly, but several, including Hur-
ricane Katrina, passed about 100-150 miles away and
caused some flooding and considerable beach erosion.

Islander's May 30 Storm-Ready special section.

the city to pump sand from the pass to the shoreline by
the city pier. The permit allowed only enough sand to
extend the shore out about 100 feet into Tampa Bay and
south from the inlet by about 200 feet.
But following completion of the project, a DEP
inspection team found the city had a beach by the pier
going about 140 feet into Tampa Bay and extending south
from the inlet approximately 530 feet.
DEP field services supervisor Ana Gibbs of Tampa
said investigators informed the city of the violation
March 23 when they met with Mayor Mike Selby and
public works supervisor George McKay.
The DEP, however, has not yet established the amount
of any fine, the amount of material to be removed from
the pier beach or the preferred method of removal, Gibbs
said.
The DEP investigating team suggested the city
remove the excess sand at the pier beach and fill in an
unauthorized channel in the bay at 643 Key Royale Drive,
Holmes Beach, but has not made it an official order.
The team has to determine if a consent order is
needed, Gibbs said.
A consent order essentially is an admission of guilt
by the city and a formal order by the DEP to perform
certain work to mitigate the offense. The city has asked
the DEP not to issue a consent order, but rather to allow
the city to correct the problem according to DEP instruc-
tions.
Mayor Mike Selby said he couldn't begin to discuss
the problem at a commission meeting until he has direc-
tions from the DEP to rectify the error. He has, however,
met individually with commissioners to apprise them of
the problem and to answer their resulting questions.
But those might be questions not yet answered by
the DEP, Gibbs said.
"I don't know when we'll know the amount of any
fine, but it will be a public record," she said.


Sometimes incidents such as this one take the DEP
several weeks or more to decide the best course of
action.
But Gibbs said she and her department are monitor-
ing the investigation and will inform the city as soon as
it receives an official notice of corrective action and a
consent order, if one is issued.
In the meantime, the pier beach may be losing sand,
as McKay and West Coast Inland Navigation District
consultant Sam Johnston said at the March 23 meeting.
An informal survey of the beach April 5 found the
sand at high tide extended into Tampa Bay around 125
feet, and south from the inlet around 400 feet.
A similar informal survey of the pier beach in early
March at high tide found the beach area extended approx-
imately 150 feet into Tampa Bay and around 500 feet
south from the Lake LaVista inlet.

BB PIER CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
Chief Sam Speciale, who facilitates the city pier team.
At its February meeting, the committee agreed to
begin compiling and consolidating information for
member review. Special said the "book has started to
be put together for anyone involved to review."
The committee currently has old project estimates
available from the previous renovation project, which at
that time, called for the city to address further piling and
decking replacement.
The project was initially capped by the city's Com-
munity Redevelopment Agency which will fund the
project at $400,000.
City clerk Nora Idso set the amount, but has
announced the CRA might have more money to put into
the project.
City public works director Tom Woodard also had
good news from the company that submitted the original
proposal.
'They told me piling costs have dropped," said Woo-
dard.
The $400,000 project cap brought forth prior cost-
saving discussions, including the possibility of removing
the pier T-end, as well as narrowing the overall pier.
With costs for piling replacement dropping and addi-
tional funding being a possibility, the committee's hope
is to move forward with the project without having to
reconfigure the pier.
'The initial statement about cutting off the T or modi-
fying it is now that hopefully we won't have to do that,"
said Speciale.
The amount of new funding available was not yet
known, but Idso said she would be able to provide the
committee a number for its April 19 meeting.
The CRA also the city commission is sched-
uled to meet April 18.
In the meantime, the pier committee agreed to prepare
a CRA agenda request to get permission to move forward
with an engineering study, if needed. An old one exists,
but may need to be modified, updated or replaced.
Building official Steve Gilbert would contact the
contractor on record the contractor who performed
the previous renovation and will determine what may
be needed regarding the study.


Mayor John Shaughnessy asked the committee how
serious the problem was and how soon the project could
start.
'The whole idea is to get it done as soon as possible,"
said Speciale. "We'll follow all of the procedures and
get it done. At the time when we put the restaurant in, it
wasn't serious enough to do it right away, but we were
told we needed to make plans to do it as soon as possible
and that was several years ago."
The last report provided on the pilings was submitted
in 2010 "and the recommendation was we do it within
three to five years," said Woodard. "So we are right there
now."
Special said he would like to see the project start
by summer, "so when everybody comes back, they come
back to a brand new pier."
Idso said it would take two to three months just to
send out a request for proposal.
The scope of work planned for the pier includes
replacing 151 pilings and putting in new decking. The
committee continued to discuss whether to use wood or
composite materials, which would have a longer lifespan
than wood.
"Those are things we will figure out as we move
forward," said Speciale. "Until we have a number, we
don't know."
Idso reminded the committee that while additional
funding may become available, the project would be lim-
ited to the final amount.
"It's important to remember that we can't get a loan
for this project," she said. "It stretches out into state
waters and can't be insured. You can't get a loan on
something that you can't insure."

BB forwards call for telecommunications proposal


By Mark Young
Islander Reporter
At their April 5 meeting, Bradenton Beach commis-
sioners authorized city attorney Ricinda Perry to send
out a request for proposal for a cellular communications
tower.
Last month, the city authorized Perry to draft the
RFP, which was presented to the commission for approval
last week.
During public comment, former commissioner Janie
Robertson suggested some changes to the RFP before
releasing it to contractors.
Robertson said the city may be limiting itself by
restricting the terminology to cellular communications
instead of telecommunications.
"I asked you before if the plan was to exclude all
other forms of telecommunications," said Robertson.
"There is a lot of other t.hnl>'\ out there that could
be included, and by calling it a cell tower is restricting
your use of it."
Robertson suggested the city change the wording
from cell tower to telecommunications tower to leave
those possibilities open for other uses of the tower.
She also noticed the RFP would require negotiating
with the company who submitted the lowest amount of
money back to the city through land-use lease fees.
"As far as I'm concerned, I want the person that
would give me the highest amount of money, not the
lowest," said Robertson.
Perry said Robertson's suggestions were legitimate


and asked the commission to move forward with the
authorization with the understanding that she would
change all references of cell tower to telecommunica-
tions tower.
Perry also said she would strike the term "lowest
possible bidder" and replace it with "responsible bidder
most advantageous" to the city.
Commissioner Gay Breuler asked Perry for clarifica-
tion of how the city would end any potential contract in
the future.
"Upon termination to the contract, the contractor will
restore the site to original condition," Breuler said. 'That
could mean we no longer need a cell tower and they have
to take it away and make it pretty again?"


Perry confirmed that should the contract end, the
costs of removing the tower and restoring the area to its
original condition would be the cost of the contractor.
"The intent of putting that in is to put people on
notice that will bid, that if you put this in, and we want it
out of there, they need to consider the expense of that,"
said Perry.
The proposed site, currently used as an outside stor-
age area, is behind the public works department, 1411
Ninth Street W.
Commissioner Jan Vosburgh motioned to approve the
RFP with corrections and to authorize Perry to negoti-
ate a contract for the scope of work. The motion passed
unanimously.

Yakity yak, we got trash
You would think after years of learning about recy-
cling, greening the Earth and the preaching about not
littering, it would be second nature for people to stow
trash responsibly.
Well, it seems a vacation in paradise translates to
carefree, which transcends to careless.
Early arrivals by the sponsoring Kiwanis Club
members at the Easter sunrise service at the Manatee
Public Beach found piles of garbage piled atop already-
full garbage cans on the beach. All the cans more
than a dozen were full and overflowing in the conces-
sion area.
Once full, trash was added to overflowing. And
still more garbage was left on the beach. Plastic drink
bottles. Broken beach chairs. Assorted attire. Plastic
bags. Even picnic tables were strewn with garbage.
Holmes Beach Mayor Rich Bohnenberger was there
with Kiwanis members, and he stopped to comment
after the service about the lack of attention to the public
beach by its caretakers, Manatee County.
The beach may be within the city limits, but its
stewards are the county, and the county reaps the rent
and fees paid by the concessionaires.
So it's Manatee County officials that should be
ashamed of the mounds of trash, the weeds and scrub
in the parking lot, the sand blown over the curbs, and
the scrappy fencing around the utility pump station.
There is no jewel such as the Manatee Public Beach
that is so abused, and we think visitors and residents
deserve better caregivers.
Bohnenberger suggested he was tempted to turn the
matter over to city code enforcement.
And, yes, it's a busy weekend. But isn't every
Easter busy? Every Christmas? Every Fourth of July?
'Take out the paper and the trash
or you don't get no spending' cash
get all that garbage out of sight
or you don't go out Friday night."
The Coasters had a hit tune of Yakity Yak (Don't
Talk Back) in 1958.
We say "take back the beach."
Don't let people leave trash, even if it takes hiring
beachguards for patrol.
We hope to see the mayor make a run at the county
to take back the beach.
Let's put the people with a vested interest those
who live here in charge of the beaches and parks.
We'd like to see Holmes Beach take charge of the
Manatee Public Beach and the revenue it produces.
Yakity yak.

Frank Walter commented on The Islander Face-
book page that he believes 'The beaches are becoming
a dump!"
Walter wrote:
It is the time of year when tourists come down and
leave their cans, bottles, toys, butts, etc. on the beach.
The most valuable resource this island has is its
beaches. Yet the businesses which benefit the most, the
resorts, do nothing to police their parts of the beach.
Walk past Silver Sands, Tortuga, Bimini, any morning
you will find bottles, cans, toys, towels, etc. These busi-
nesses are being short sighted because tourists will stop
coming if they find a filthy beach.
I would like to see the chamber of commerce start
a promotion campaign: "If you bring it to the beach
take it back." The campaign should advise what can
be taken and what is prohibited. Advise the fines for
littering the beach. S i'.',., t to people when they see
littering to advise the litterer to stop. The chamber
should publish brochures with this information and
it should be distributed to all renters at check in.
It is time for us to be proud of our beaches and take
them back.
Dawn Kozash wrote: Nicely said Walter, this
has been going on for years! My son and I used to
walk and clean the beaches, it is just so sad! We also
need to educate them on our sensitive environment.


Yesterday we were at the beach and watched some
children playing in the sea oats while their parents
watched, it wasn't until they started pulling out the
sea oats did we go over nicely and tell them they are
protected.

there permanently. We will be sure to add informa-
tion about protecting and respecting the beach in our
package delivered to each guest. Perhaps you should
contact the city council and resorts you mentioned
above as well as the major rental companies to ensure
it is also in their administrative guidelines. Just a
thought to push your policies further.


Best-ever Kiwanis Club
sunrise service
The 48th annual Sunrise Service was a wonderful
morning of celebration.
The service welcomed one of the largest audiences
in our history with a beautiful message of "Love Wins"
from the Rev. Rosemary Backer of Gloria Dei Church.
Exceptional music from organist Drew Thomas was
coupled with the outstanding voice of Kiwanian Sue
Kruse.
Nothing quite matches the sun rising over our beach
as our voices are filled with the excitement of the resur-
rection.
Thanks to the generosity of those who attended,
each of the Island churches will receive more than
$950.
Many thanks to our churches, those who attended,
the Beach cafe staff, and all those Kiwanis volunteers
who made sure it happened.

Island library to remodel, close May 1


By Kathy Prucnell
Islander Reporter
The Island Branch Library will be closing May 1
for its first major remodeling since the library opened
its doors Dec. 15, 1982, at 5701 Marina Drive,
Holmes Beach.
The library will close to the public May 1, and
staff and volunteers and some members of the Friends
of the Library are expected to move the library books
as well as its other contents by June 1 to a yet unan-
nounced location, according to Manatee County offi-
cials.

library through its neighborhood services depart-
ment.
"We're hoping to find temporary storage nearby
to keep the books out of the elements," according to
Nicholas Azzara, Manatee County spokesperson.
Cheri Coryea, director of neighborhood services,
said that while she hopes the library will reopen Sept.
1, the project's scheduled completion date is Sept.
30.
"We're going to be replacing the carpeting, ceil-
ing tiles and lighting in the library," said Coryea.
Electrical work throughout the library will expand
Internet connectivity, she added.
The project also will include interior painting and
replacement of the corkboard in the community room,
as well as Americans with Disability Act renovations
in the bathrooms, according to county officials.
"We want to make sure the Friends of the Library
played a role in '. ,'lin,' improvements," Azzara
said, adding the library's expansion of Wi-Fi was
directly related to one of its concerns.
"The Friends are great partners, and the county
appreciates their passions and volunteer hours," he
said.
The county's remodeling budget is $200,000,
and tax dollars will fund the project, according to
Azzara.
All of the library's programming will be sus-
pended for the summer, according to local and county
officials.
Island Branch Library Supervisor Inez Tama-
naha said an average of 590 people used the library
daily during the month of February and, last year, the
summer months averaged between 312 and 336 daily
users.
She's referring patrons to the South Manatee
Library, 6081 26th St. W., Bradenton, and Central
Library, 6081 26th St. W., Bradenton, and, "of course,
Tingley" Memorial Library, 111 Second St., Braden-
ton Beach.

Headlines from the April 10,
2002, issue of The Islander
Bradenton Beach residents packed city hall to
express opinions on a proposed six-month moratorium
on right-of-way vacations, land-development code
changes and comprehensive-plan amendments. One
speaker advocated the moratorium, while seven others
opposed the ordinance. One said the city has come a
long way since the days of street fighting on Bridge
Street and development needed to continue.
Anna Maria Island small business and restaurant
owners complained of a low turnout of visitors to the
Island on Easter after the county public safety office
turned on portable signs on Cortez Road and the Palma
Sola Causeway around 1:30 p.m. that said "Beaches
closed." Dee Percifield of Cafe on the Beach at the
Manatee Public Beach said it was the worst Easter ever
for her business.
Beach renourishment in Holmes Beach began
moving northward from the Martinique condomini-
ums in the 5200 block of Gulf Drive. Manatee County
natural resources director Charlie Hunsicker said crews
were putting down between 300-700 feet of sand daily
in Holmes Beach, and the only complaints were about
the machinery noise at night.

Rental cottage, pool company face code hearing


By Kathy Prucnell
Islander Reporter
Barefoot Bungalows and Agnelli Pools & Construc-
tion will come before the city's code enforcement board
at 10 a.m. Thursday, April 19, for building code violations
in the city's R-2 zone.
The hearings will be held in the city hall chambers,
5701 Marina Drive.
Barefoot Bungalows LLC, listed in county property
records as owner of 5608 Holmes Blvd., will be asked
to answer for alleged violations of state building codes
when it allowed its contractor, apparently Beach to Bay
Construction Inc., to continue work after the city issued
a stop work order. The home was in the process of being
remodeled and the stop work order related to enforcement
of flood-zone remodeling regulations, according to city
building officials.
The city issued the stop work order on the Holmes
Boulevard property after Beach to Bay removed certain
walls in violation of the 50 percent Federal Emergency
Agency Management rule, city building inspector Bob
Shaffer said.
FEMA requires the city to oversee permitted remod-
eling projects and project alterations to ensure homes are
built with safeguards against erosion due to flooding.

Rental focus updates
Recommendations from Holmes Beach commis-
sioners heading up various rental focus groups may be
discussed at their Tuesday, April 10, work session.
The work session is held immediately following the
regular commission meeting that begins at 7 p.m.
Prior to Tuesday's discussion, Commissioners Jean
Peelen and Pat Morton released their respective group's
recommendations.
Commission Chair David Zaccagnino and others
have recognized Peelen's group, the building code focus
group, as having the majority of the workload. This group
has tackled issues of the city's land-development code.
Peelen summarized her group's recommendations:
Keep most current building requirements set-
backs, height limits, etc.
Add floor/area ratio (FAR) requirements for the R-1
single family and R-2 duplex districts with R-1 FAR
at .35 and the R-2 FAR at .30.
Create a requirement for duplex houses joined
underground to be separated by a minimum of 10 feet.
Increase the minimum size for a duplex lot from
8,712 square feet to 10,100 square feet.
Require pool setbacks 10 feet from the pool water
to adjacent property lines.
Discourage demolition of ground-level houses, and
encourage rehabs by allowing setback variances.


While the issue was ultimately resolved by the par-
ties' attorneys, according to Forbes, Beach to Bay started
work on the Holmes Boulevard property before the stop
work order was lifted by the city.
According to the Florida Secretary of State, Bare-
foot Bungalows is a limited liability company with two
managers, Beach to Bay Construction LLC and Dean
Hoshizki of Seattle, Wash. Beach to Bay Construction
Inc. is listed as one of the Beach to Bay Construction

on April 10 HB agenda
A draft report from Morton's focus group includes
changes to current rental practices:
Boat trailer one spot, car one spot.
Designate rentals with stickers of different color
for different period.
Boats need to be accepted/stored at rentals. Su_','. I
city overflow parking for boats.
Designate parking spaces per bedrooms.
Establish fines first offense, written warning;
second, $200 fine; third, fine percentage of reservation
and eviction.
Police can intervene without formal complaint if
issues are clear, issue written warnings and call property
managers.
Leasing agent responsible for fine.
Use of rental agent best practices, including mini-
mum-age limit of occupants and renter.
In addition to the rental issue, the work session
agenda includes a 27th Street/Sandpiper update. The city
commission gave the Sandpiper Resort Co-op two weeks
to advise of its intentions regarding the city's requested
quitclaim of 30 feet of the 27th Street 50-foot right of
way that divides Sandpiper from the city limits.
Commissioners also will hold first readings of revi-
sions to the city's outdoor dining ordinance and a new
ordinance related to Internet cafes.

by the sign on the property.
Scott Eason is listed as president of Beach to Bay
Construction, Inc. Its address, according to the state
website, is 5702 Marina Drive, Holmes Beach. The city
posted the notices April 4, listing both Barefoot Bun-
galows and Agnelli Pools & Construction at the 5702
Marina Drive address.
The state website indicates Agnelli Pools & Con-
struction is a limited liability company at another Marina
Drive address, and Frank Agnelli of Bradenton is the
managing member.
"Agnelli goes hand in hand with Beach to Bay," said
Forbes, referring to the two contractors known to work
on the same construction projects.
Commissioners will also hear the city code viola-
tions against Agnelli Pools for work performed without
a permit at 205 77th Street. Agnelli was red-tagged by
the city building department for failure to pull a permit
for recent demolition work on the 77th Street property,
Forbes said.
Code Enforcement Officer David Forbes said the
case against Agnelli also involves the company's repeat
offender status "predicated on the last instance concern-
ing the pools on 66th Street."
The city previously issued stop work orders in Janu-
ary to Agnelli for work at 66th Street on two pools before
permits were in place, according to Shaffer. After the 66th
Street incident, Agnelli paid a $1,500 fine, according to
building department records.
Now with their respective violations before the code
enforcement board, Agnelli and Barefoot Bungalows face
fines of $250 a day, and $500 a day for repeat viola-
tions.
"But it's not about revenue generating," Forbes said.
"It's about a message of 'don't do it again.'"


Alex's Tree

Our 42-year-old son Alex passed away suddenly in March 2011.
Although we had not attended services there for 10 years or so, the
thoughtful folks at Palma Sola Presbyterian Church, knowing of
his work with trees at Bishop Animal Shelter and elsewhere, made
a donation to the Keep Manatee Beautiful program administered
by the City of Bradenton. The program planted a tree in Alex's
memory on the Manatee Avenue causeway leading to Anna Maria
Island. This is also appropriate as Alex loved that island where
our family maintained a house for some years. We also salute
the city for promoting beautification in such a thoughtful manner
and we encourage others to so
memorialize or honor friends and
loved ones, whether living or
deceased.
Alex's tree, pictured here, is
the third tree east of the bridge
over Perico Bay (the western-
most small bridge) on the north
side of the avenue. As you
make the trip over the causeway,
whether by car, bike or on foot,
take a moment to say thanks
to our city for this initiative
-- and say "hello" to Alex's
memory; we do.

AMI Beach Resort seeks after-the-fact permits


By Kathy Prucnell
Islander Reporter
While not all the i's are dotted and t's crossed, Anna
Maria Island Beach Resort, 105 39th St., Holmes Beach,
appears to be heeding the advice of the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection and is seeking after-the-fact
permits for huts and walkways constructed last year.
The resort began the process with a DEP permit
application by landscape architect John R. Tate. However,
the submission is "incomplete," according to a March 21
letter from Subbuswamy Muthuswamy, a DEP bureau of
beaches and coastal systems permit manager.
Muthuswamy's letter states the DEP still must receive
a description of the proposed work; a list of adjacent
property owners; a fee worksheet; a field survey not more
than six-months old; a dimensioned site plan; and written
evidence of compliance with Holmes Beach's setbacks
and zoning codes.
Don Meilner of Meilner & Sons Construction
received a city permit for the AMI Resort project April
5, which now satisfies the DEP's local code compliance
requirement.
City fees and fines paid on the $50,000 project totaled
$2,911.84, including $1,922, a triple fee assessed for code
violations, he said.
The city issued stop work orders for the violations
in January and June last year, in part due to the resort's
construction in Gulf Drive setbacks. The thatched hut
roofs caused water runoff that posed a danger to motor-
ists, according to city building inspector Bob Shaffer.


The owner has since removed the palm fronds from
the huts at the city's insistence, alleviating the water
runoff issue, and leaving the wood frame huts.
The DEP issued a Feb. 8 warning letter, addressing
the unpermitted construction and requiring a state permit
application within 30 days under a threat to remove the
structures.

according to the city. Islander Photo: Kathy Prucnell


On behalf of the resort, Tate responded with an appli-
cation and letter that were received by the DEP March 8.
In the letter, Tate wrote the "long-term plan" for one
of the structures was "to encourage a vine to cover the
log structure to provide shade for guests." The resort also
plans to leave a smaller structure "roofless" and a third
structure on the west side of the property "is slated to be
removed entirely because it blocks the property's sign,"
according to Tate's letter.
However, both Shaffer and Meilner said one of the
structures already has been removed.
As far as the planned construction, Meilner has filed
city-approved engineering plans based on Tate's designs.
He said the brick paver decking and walkways installed
seaward of the CCCL will be allowed to remain.
However, Meilner added, just how the remaining two
structures will be covered is still to be determined. How
the owner ultimately will offer shade under the gazebos
will depend on the city and state fire marshal's restric-
tions.

Sea turtle volunteers prep for nesting season


By Mark Young
Islander Reporter
What should an Anna Maria Island Turtle Watch
and Shorebird Monitoring volunteer report when walk-
ing their designated section of beach during nesting
season?
Everything.
That was the emphasis at the April 5 AMITW vol-
unteer training session held at Holmes Beach City Hall
in preparation of the May 1 start to sea turtle-nesting
season.
AMITW executive director Suzi Fox greeted more
than 85 volunteers and coordinators to the mandatory
training session, and began to prepare them for what may
be an early nesting season.
Fox has said previously she expects an early season
due to a mild winter. She provided her small army of
volunteers with a simple number: 80.
I Igliy degrees or warmer," said Fox. "It's the cue
for mother turtles to come in, because at that point the
sand on our beaches will be heated up to where they can
incubate the eggs."
Most of AMITW's volunteers are experienced from
past seasons, but a handful of new volunteers were intro-
duced to the ABCs of data collecting.
\ ly main thing is consistency with data," said Fox.
"And you have to remember that occasionally you aren't
just a walker. Your coordinator will call you over to help

with a variety of things, but no matter what happens, you
must finish your walk."
Fox said the data collected is sent to a variety of
places, including Island city and Manatee County govern-
ments, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
"A lot of what we collect determines federal funds
for beach renourishment," said Fox. I \ i3 >ii wants to
know how many nests we find, how many hatched and
how many get disoriented. They all keep track of the
data for various reasons that affect how the beaches are
maintained."
The goal of it all, she said, is to ensure sea turtle and
shorebird populations, while educating the public on the
impact of lights, disturbances and harassment.
Walkers picked up the necessary gear to get started,
such as flags and forms, and were advised to bring cell
phones and notebooks on their designated walks.
"When on the beach, arrive a little before dawn and
walk the waterline," said Fox. "If you see a crawl and
walk to the nest to mark it, walk straight back to the
waterline and continue your walk."
Fox explained the waterline is the best place to spot
crawl sites.
"And if you see a mother, stay as far away as you can
and stay behind her," she said. "By all means, watch it
if you want, because it's a rare sight, but stay away from
her or you might scare her back into the water."
Sea turtles, almost exclusively loggerheads, nest on
Anna Maria Island. The females typically come ashore
at night to nest, and mothers and hatchlings rely on the
reflection of stars and moon on the Gulf of Mexico to
guide them back to the water.
The volunteers also learned about false crawls, where
turtles come onshore and for some reason return to the
water without nesting.
Volunteers will conduct a practice walk later this
month.
AMITW has brought new focus to shorebird nest-
ing, which overlaps turtle nesting season. In March, the
report of an early snowy plover nesting brought plenty
of excitement.
"Unfortunately, the mother abandoned the nest," said
Fox. "But the good news is she was spotted looking for
a new mate."
It's a reminder of everyone's responsibility to share
the beaches with wildlife. The beach-going public is

AMITW receives inaugural Blue Dolphin Award
The Sarasota Bay Estuary Program April 4 awarded
the Anna Maria Island Turtle Watch and Shorebird Moni-

AMITW was one of five organizations to receive the
award, which was presented at the Powel Crosley Man-
sion, One Seagate Drive, Sarasota, in a private ceremony.
The award recognizes local champions of Sarasota Bay
and the SPEP's mission to restore and protect the bay.
AMITW executive director Suzi Fox accepted the
award on behalf of her volunteers, who Fox said have
proudly enhanced the organization over the years.
Fox's opening statement summed up the award's
representation to AMITW. She quoted Margret Mead,
who once said, N \ i underestimate that a small group
of concerned citizens can change the world."
Fox said the key to making AMITW a successful
environmental group is having "the world's best people."
She recognized some of the volunteers at the ceremony,

Scenic Waves members take up ELRA concerns


By Mark Young
Islander Reporter
Scenic Waves Partnership committee members at
their April 3 meeting expressed concern over the city's
development agreement with ELRA, the corporation that
owns the BeachHouse Restaurant, 200 Gulf Drive N.
Bradenton Beach commissioners signed the agree-
ment March 1, which paves the way for site planning to
begin on a dune project across from city hall, 107 Gulf
Drive, which also will provide additional parking for both
the city and the restaurant.
Scenic Waves chair Carl Parks said any development
along Gulf Drive, which is designated a Florida Scenic
Highway, should have first come for review in front of
the Scenic Waves Partnership committee.
"Any development that isn't first approved by this
committee could cause the state to pull our scenic high-

including Debbie Basilius, Ed Sterba, Betsy Lynch and
education directors Claudia and Glenn Wiseman.
Fox is quick to point to her many volunteers as a key
to the program's success.
"How do you convince a group of 87 people to
go to work at 5 a.m. for 200 days out of the year for
no money?" she asked. "You show them how they can
change the world by doing it."
Fox said she brings people back to a special time
where nesting shorebirds, nesting sea turtles and beautiful
waves are a rich natural resource to be appreciated.
"We don't have to pay for these," she said. 'They are
free and are what draws people back time and time again
to Manatee County. It's not high-rises, not casinos, and
not wild nightlife on the beach. It's our beautiful county's
natural resources."
Fox said she ends all of her training sessions with
the same words.
"Let's be gentle with, \ i thing breathing," she said.
"Be kind to the people around you. Be kind to all animals.
Be responsible to all that lives. Don't take the homes and
lives of either just for the sake of money. Remember that
the animals need us to be responsible for them and their
homes because their lives depend on us."

While the development agreement has been consid-
ered and in the news for more than a month, Parks said he
only "just heard about some possible major development
and parking some vehicles on the beach," he said. "It's a
scenic highway issue and affects us as a committee."
Building official Steve Gilbert attended the Scenic
Waves meeting at Bradenton Beach City Hall to address
the committee's concerns, which was focused around the
planned parking lot.
"This project is not derived for parking, it's designed
for coastal protection," said Gilbert, who highlighted the
dune protection system as the project's primary goal. "It's
been the No. 1 issue because (Gulf Drive) is the only
evacuation route for half the city."
Gilbert said the project has been vetted for consis-
tency with the city's emergency response plan and com-
prehensive land-use plan.
But Scenic Waves members concerns remained about
adding parking on the beach and they had questions about
whether it would be public parking or city parking.
"Discussion at this point relates to traffic issues,
traffic flow in and out," said Gilbert. "Can the city use
parking spaces? It's been a serious discussion for three to
five years, but the proposal thus far contemplates, No. 1,
identifying and putting in a dune. The secondary benefit
is the creation of additional parking spaces."
Gilbert said he understood the concerns expressed
by Scenic Waves members, but the joint development
agreement is only an agreement to work with ELRA.
"Let me clarify something," he said. "What we are
discussing at this point is development plans. The devel-
opment agreement is only a tool for the two entities to
work together. The planning process is another matter."

Conflict of interest?
There also were concerns expressed at the meeting
about the involvement of city attorney Ricinda Perry in
forming the city-ELRA agreement. Perry is the city's
- I--- _


r


' -I -- I--


legal representative, but also has represented ELRA in
this and other matters.
Parks questioned the wisdom of using Perry to draft
an agreement between two entities she represents.
"Ricinda is not representing ELRA in Bradenton
Beach," said Gilbert. "She does represent ELRA in
Anna Maria, but does not represent them here. She was
involved to help the city and benefit the city as much as
possible. She acted on behalf of the city."
Parks said he still has a concern "that our attorney is
also representing someone involved. Why wouldn't we
use (another attorney) so there isn't even an appearance
of impropriety?"
"Ricinda is the principle attorney for the city," said
Gilbert. 'The city told her to draft this to our benefit and
she has."
Gilbert said it was a matter to take up with the city
commission.
Scenic Waves member Barbara Rodecker agreed
with Gilbert.
"Our concern is what this (project) does to the face
of our community and that should be our only concern,"
she said. "Ironing out particularities is something that
goes to another committee. We certainly don't want to
see parked cars in there, and for that we all have the right
to go to the (April 10) planning and zoning meeting to
express our concerns.
Ingrid McClellan made a motion for Scenic Waves to
file an official recommendation that a parking lot would
be buffered with landscaping on both the ELRA and city
sides of the parking lot, "so as to keep it as a Bradenton
Beach Scenic Highway," she said.
The motion passed with all present voting yes.
Rodecker was appointed to be the committee's liai-
son to P&Z. Parks will serve as the committee's alternate
should Rodecker be unavailable for upcoming planning
meetings.

March 27, 100 S. Bay Blvd., trespass warning. A
Manatee County Sheriff's Office deputy responded to the
Anna Maria Pier restaurant regarding a customer who left
the restaurant without paying his bill. En route to the call,
the deputy spotted the suspect and initiated a traffic stop.
The suspect acted genuinely surprised, according to the
report, saying he forgot to pay. The deputy reported the
suspect was either under the influence or had a mental
impairment, so he believed the suspect genuinely forgot
to pay. The suspect was escorted back to the restaurant to
pay his bill. The manager agreed with the deputy's assess-
ment, and did not press charges. However, the manager
did not want the customer to return, so he was issued a
trespass warning.

Roadwatch, April 11-18
The Manatee County Utilities Department has equip-
ment and supplies on North Shore Drive and adjoining
streets in Anna Maria for the installation of new sewer
lines in the city.
An MCUD press release said the work is not
expected to impact traffic in the project area, which is
between Cypress Avenue and Palm Avenue on North
Shore Drive.
The Florida Department of Transportation main-
tenance project on the Longboat Key/State Road 789
bridge will be operational both day and night this week,
including some nighttime temporary lane closures that
will last no more than 15 minutes. A flr._'iin' operation
will control traffic during lane closures, a DOT press
release said.
No nighttime closures will be permitted from 10
p.m.-6 a.m. Friday evening through Monday morning.
The west sidewalk of the bridge is closed, but pedes-
trians can use the east sidewalk during construction. The
draw will open for boaters on demand.
The DOT has closed Greer Island often called
Beer Can Island near the bridge to pedestrians and
boaters during the project, citing safety concerns and
liability. Boaters are advised they could be ticketed by
law enforcement for anchoring or beaching their boat in
the restricted area.
Completion of the project is expected in late
spring.
More information on the project is available online
at www.mySR789.com.

Tampa Bay Lightning
names Whitmore

community hero
Manatee County Commissioner and former Holmes
Beach Mayor Carol Whitmore was recently named a
community hero by the Tampa Bay Lightning profes-
sional hockey team. The team named one person as a
community hero this season before each of its 40 home
games.
Whitmore received $50,000 from the Lightning
Foundation and Community Heroes program to donate
to the non-profit organizations of her choice.
Whitmore was named a com-
munity hero at the Lightning's final
home game April 2 against the Wash-
ington (D.C.) Capitals.
In announcing the award, a
Lightning press release on the team's
website said Whitmore's name was
Whitmore submitted by Manatee County
Animal Services. Whitmore is the
county commission liaison to animal services.
The award cited Whitmore for her help with animal
services, homeless people and other non-profit organiza-
tions.
Whitmore said she asked that $40,000 be donated to
Animal Network Inc., $5,000 to the Community Coali-
tion on Homelessness, and $5,000 to the Manatee County
Food Bank.
Lightning announcer Dave Mishkin said Whitmore
was the first person from Manatee County to be named
a community hero by the Lightning.

HB makes plans to celebrate Arbor Day


By Kathy Prucnell
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach will plant a large native bald cypress
tree, expected to grow to about 100 feet at full height
- at Fourth and Manatee avenues, to commemorate
National Arbor Day at 10 a.m., Friday, April 27.
Jerry West, chair of the city parks and beautifica-
tion committee, said he expects representatives from the
Florida Forestry Service and Keep Manatee Beautiful to
be on hand to celebrate the event with city officials, and


Chair Jerry West, center, of
the Holmes Beach Parks and
Beautification Committee,
leads a meeting April 4 in
the conference room of city
hall, 5801 Marina Drive.
Attending are members Ruth -
deHaan, Marilyn /in ,i and -
Melissa Snyder and, seated
behind Snyder, commission
liaison David Zaccagnino.- -. A


the mayor's office to issue a proclamation.
The cypress will be the first of about a dozen trees
planted by the city at this location, West said.
As the first item of old business, members were
reminded of the Arbor Day event. The committee had
approved the plantings at its March meeting.
"Overall, all trees are doing well all through the city,"
West reported at the April 4 meeting. An exception to this,
he said, is some landscaping near Wells Fargo on Gulf
Drive. He said the city will be upgrading the landscaped


areas, and member Melissa Synder will be coming back
to the committee with a list of replacement plants.
Also at the April meeting, committee members dis-
cussed planting trees, including 30 palms, that remain to
be planted from a downtown merchant association dona-
tion of 125 bottle, spindle and triangle palms to the city
about six months ago.
Of these, the committee decided to plant three tri-
angle palms and two other palm varieties, as well as two
more flame plants at 79th Street and Palm Avenue.
Member Marilyn Shirley will be looking into desired
placement and landscaping plans of the remaining plants,
according to West.
Discussion about a Third Avenue pedestrian parkway
was tabled.
In other matters, committee member Ruth deHaan
said she still wants "to get rid of the invasive Australian
pines," while Shirley disagreed.
City commissioner David Zaccagnino, liaison to
the committee, suggested public works director Gary
Blunden sit in on future committee meetings.
"It's a great idea," said West. "(The public works
department) needs to know what we're doing. We need
to know what they're doing."
The committee also agreed to meet next at 5 p.m.
Wednesday, May 2, and then rest until October.

Islander Reporter
Signs, flags and plaques have arrived to signify Bra-
denton Beach as a Tree City USA.
The city was designated a Tree City USA last year,
and then celebrated Florida Arbor Day Jan. 20 with the
planting of new trees on Bridge Street.
The larger event planned for April 27, when Arbor
Day celebrates 140 years, was a subject for discussion
at the April 3 Scenic Waves Partnership meeting at Bra-
denton Beach City Hall.
"We need to decide what we want to do," said Scenic
Waves member and Keep Manatee Beautiful executive
director Ingrid McClellan, who unveiled the new signs
and a flag.
It was announced at the Jan. 20 celebration that more
Bridge Street tree plantings were planned, in particular
at the U.S. Post Office, 116 Bridge St.
McClellan suggested the April 27 celebration include
finishing the post office planting, and the Tree City USA
flag could be raised atop the post office for the day.
There was some concern about ensuring permission


to raise the Tree City USA flag there.
McClellan said she would seek permission, and also
discussed the possibility of raising the flag at city hall,
107 Gulf Drive, as an alternative location.
McClellan also said she would like to see the cer-
emony take place at 9 a.m.
"It's a good time for Bradenton Beach," she said.
"The other cities are at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m., and we also
need to discuss whether the flag would fly just on Arbor
Day or all the time."
McClellan said there also would need to be a proc-
lamation read on Arbor Day, a requirement to maintain
the city's Tree City USA designation.
Scenic Waves chair Carl Parks said he would provide
a draft proclamation to the city, which could be prepared
for Mayor John Shaughnessy to read at the ceremony.
A motion was made to prepare the proclamation and
to schedule Bradenton Beach's Arbor Day ceremony for
9 a.m. Friday, April 27, which passed unanimously.
Parks scheduled the next Scenic Waves Partnership
meeting for 3 p.m. Friday, May 7.

Banana Cabana invites
musicians to play
Local entertainers will have the opportunity to dis-
play their talents 3-6 p.m. Sunday, April 15, with an open
microphone at Banana Cabana, 103 Gulf Drive N., Bra-
denton Beach.
DJ Rick Quimby will host Sunday Funday, said
Chris Smargisso, who owns the restaurant along with
wife Sheryl Smargisso and son P.J. Smargisso.
We welcome any musician who wants to play, said
Chris Smargisso.
"We did one two weeks ago without any notice and
it was a blast," he said.
I \ I,)13'n had a lot of fun, so we decided to do
another one. If this one goes well, we'll try to hold one
every other week."
Along with the local entertainment, the restaurant
will have food and drink specials throughout the day,
Smargisso said.
"As far as I know, we're the only place on the Island
that gives musicians this chance to play and show their
skill," said Smargisso.
"I think there's a lot of hidden talent out there just
waiting for a chance to be discovered. Here it is," he
said.

The airport authority and BACVB will use the survey
data to form a strategy to attract airlines to the airport,
Brockman said.
Surveys were e-mailed recently to chamber and
BACVB members. A copy of the survey also is available

Center kicks off adult soccer, another ace at KRC


By Kevin Cassidy
Islander Reporter
Another season of coed adult soccer has begun at the
Anna Maria Island Community Center in Anna Maria
with eight teams participating in the Thursday evening
league.
Island Pest Control and Don Meilner & Son Con-
struction jumped to the top of the standings after two
weeks with matching 2-0 records, while Wash Family
Construction and Pink & Navy Boutique find themselves
at the bottom of the standings at 0-2.
The season is still young though, with regular-season
games played Thursday evenings lniiiugh \ lay 24, when
playoffs begin, leading to the Island Cup championships
June 8.
There were four games played April 5, starting with
Slim's Place taking on Agnelli Pool & Spa. Aaron Parkin
notched three goals and Aaron Duduks scored once to
lead Slim's past Agnelli by a 4-0 score. Emily Argeros
and Chrissy Rice both added assists, while goalie Adam
Mott made seven saves in the shutout victory.
The second game of the evening saw Island Pest
Control get goals from four different players as they
edged Florida Discount Signs 5-3. Adam Bujarski led the
way with two goals, while Greg Ross and Ryan Hogan
each scored one goal. Brent Laudicina had a strong all-
around game with a goal and an assist to go along with
six saves in goal. Emily King added two saves for Island
Pest Control in the victory.
Discount Signs received goals from Matt Kretzman,
Daniel Anderson and Brad Laudicina, while goalie Josh
Peurifoy made 19 saves in the loss.
Meilner slipped past Wash 6-5 in the closest game
of the evening. Meilner received three goals from Matt
Plummer, two from Tim Tidesco and one from Rich Bell.
Nate Talucci added three saves in goal in the Meilner
victory.
Norman Fleet scored three goals to lead Wash, which
also received a goal each from Kris Yavalar and Austin
Wash. Matt Ray recorded seven saves for Wash in the
loss.
Best Buy recorded a workman-like 4-1 victory over
Pink & Navy in the final game of the night. Rico Beissert
led Best Buy with a goal and an assist, while Brazilian
striker Zopan and Missy Verdoliva each added a goal.
Mark Pennell made four saves and Pedro Gonzalez added
a pair of saves for Best Buy in the victory.
Scott Eason scored the lone goal for P&N, while

Key Royale golf news
Another busy week of golf at Key Royale Club was
punctuated with an ace during the afternoon round Thurs-
day April 5.
According to club member Ed Havlik, John Cassese
was on the phone with his son moments before he was
set to tee off on hole number seven, the 167 par three, in
the day's four-person scramble.
Cassese said, "I told my son I'd call him back after
golf and the last thing on my mind was a hole in one. I
was just hoping to hit the green."
Cassese's ace was witnessed by playing partners
Gerry Dahl and Gary Alvord.
The team rode the ace to a 6-under-par 26 and a tie
for first place with the team of Tom MacDonald, Mike
Ross, Craig Humphreys and Mike Gille.
On April 6, the women let the men join them for
a coed handicap scramble. The team of Rose Slomba,

THE ISLANDER U APRIL 11, 2012 E 25


Spring break ends, fishing turns on


By Capt. Danny Stasny
Islander Reporter
With pristine weather and calm waters, Anna Maria
anglers are flocking to the water to drop a line. Migratory
species such as Spanish mackerel, kingfish and bonito
are arriving in numbers around artificial reefs and hard
bottom.
Find the bait schools find the fish.
Offshore fishers are reporting good numbers of red
grouper being caught in water depths starting at 100 feet.
Around these depths, good numbers of mangrove snapper
also are coming on the line. Live shiners or pinfish are the
baits of choice, although frozen baits such as threadfin
herring, Spanish sardines or squid will suffice.
Inshore fishing remains consistent for spotted
seatrout, redfish and catch-and-release snook. Again,
live shiners are the bait of choice, especially if you're
looking for snook action. Artificials such as DOA Cal
jigs are catching good numbers of spotted seatrout on the
grass flats of north Sarasota Bay. Try drifting and working
the sandy potholes to hook up. For reds, try fishing sand
potholes on shallow grass flats. Live shiners are a good
bet, although a Berkley Gulp shrimp or a gold spoon will
catch them, too.
Capt. Rick Gross of Fishy Business charters is fish-
ing nearshore structure for king and Spanish mackerel.
Using live shiners for bait, Gross is catching macks up
to 4 pounds and kings to 20 pounds. For both, especially
kings, Gross is starting at water depths of 30 feet and
working his way to depths of 40 feet.
Moving inshore, Gross is targeting redfish on the fall-
ing tides. Gross is fishing southern Tampa Bay in search
of these much sought-after fish. Fishing grass flats adja-
cent to mangrove shorelines, Gross' charters are catching
slot-size fish with the bi,''i coming in at 25 inches. For
bait, Gross is using live shiners.
Spotted seatrout also are in Gross' sights. For the
trout, Gross is fishing rising tides. In depths of 5 to 7 feet,
Gross' charters are catching trout up to 23 inches suf-
ficient numbers to take home for a nice fish dinner. Again,
Gross is using live shiners to catch these yellow-mouthed
flats-dwellers.
Capt. Warren Girle is fishing offshore structure
targeting both kings and Spanish mackerel. Using live
shiners or threadfin herring, Girle's clients are catching
good numbers of both species. He chums live bait to get
these high-activity fish feeding on the surface, then his
anglers cast out a bait. Once it enters the water, it's not
long before the battle begins.
Moving inshore, Girle is working both live bait and
artificial to target spotted seatrout and redfish, fishing
sandy potholes on shallow flats in Sarasota Bay. Berkley
Gulp shrimp on a 1/8-ounce jig head or live shiners are
getting the bite. Girle's bi_ _'I redfish this past week came
in at 29 inches and the bi '. I trout was 23 inches.
On deeper grass flats in Sarasota Bay, Girle is using
soft plastics to catch spotted seatrout, Spanish mackerel
and ladyfish. Most trout are being caught on the deeper
flats, averaging 12-15 inches.
Jeff Medley at the Sunshine Skyway Bridge South
Fishing Pier is seeing a variety of migratory species being
caught daily especially in the early morning. Pier fish-
ers using live or artificial baits are having good success

on multiple species.
Spanish mackerel have shown up in full force. You
can find these fish slashing through schools of thread-
fin herring or whitebait in the hours just after sun up. If
using live bait, Medley says to make sure to rig with at
least 30-pound fluorocarbon tied to a 2/0 extra long shank
hook. For artificial, try using Gotcha plugs, silver spoons
or small jigs. Average size of the macks is between 15 to
20 inches to the fork.
Bonito also are mixed in with the macks, ravaging
bait schools around the pier. These fish fight a lot harder
than any Spanish mackerel you'll catch, so be prepared
for some drag-screaming action.
If using light tackle, don't be surprised to have a
bonito peel off 3/4 of your spool. If you get a big one,
they make take all of your line. You'll catch these foot-
ball-shaped powerhouses on the same lures or bait as
Spanish mackerel. Average size is 7 to 10 pounds.
Another migratory species in the pier mix is jack
crevalle. Like bonito, jack crevalle fight extremely hard
for their size, so be ready. Average size of the jacks is 6
to 8 pounds.
Last but not least, the pompano bite remains consis-
tent at the pier. Pier fishers using Love's lures pompano
jigs are getting the bite. Average size of pompano this
past week is up to 16 inches to the fork of the tail.
Tom Cassetty at the Rod & Reel Pier says fishing is
beginning to pick up with the arrival of warm weather
and schools of baitfish.
Pompano and Spanish mackerel are being caught
both early mornings and just before sunset. For the mack-
erel, pier fishers are using white jigs, silver spoons or live
shiners to get the bite. For the pompano, small white or
yellow jigs are the bait of choice.
For pier fishers using live shrimp for bait, fishing
under and around the pilings of the pier is producing
flounder and black drum. There are some over-slot red-
fish hanging around under the pier, so be sure to use
stout tackle. Most of the flounder being caught are small,
although the black drum are averaging 20 inches in length.
As for the reds, fish up to 30 inches are coming to the
deck. Remember, these larger reds are breeding fish, so

make sure to release them quickly and with care.
Jonny Keyes at Island Discount Tackle says inshore
and offshore fishers are reporting good results on both
live bait and artificial.
Starting offshore, Keyes is fishing wrecks and ledges,
targeting both migratory species and bottom dwellers,
hooking up king mackerel, shark and black fin tuna. For
bottom dwellers, Keyes is catching catch-and-release gag
groper, red grouper and a few mangrove snapper.
Moving onto the grass flats of lower Tampa Bay and
south to Sarasota Bay, Keyes is hearing of good spotted
seatrout action. Flats fishers are using either live shiners
or soft plastics on a jig head to get the bite. Fish up to 28
inches are being reported.
Redfish are still being caught on shallow grass flats.
By anchoring and chumming, you can lure the schools of
reds to your boat and keep them there. Then it's game on.
Average size of the reds is slot-size, 18 to 27 inches.
On the beaches, pompano are still dominating the
bite. Live sand fleas or pompano jigs are the key. You
should rig, at the most, 20-pound fluorocarbon leader.
Sometimes these fish become leader shy, in which case,
15-pound leader is a better option.
Also on the beaches, anglers are catching small
sharks and ladyfish. For the sharks, use frozen squid or
a piece of fresh-cut ladyfish. Most sharks on the beach
are averaging 3-4 feet in length, so gear up accordingly.
Remember, even though these sharks are small, they still
have a mouthful of shark teeth. Use caution to remove
the hook.
Capt. Sam Kimball of Legend Charters is working
offshore, catching a variety of both migratory and bottom
species. To start the day, Kimball is catching Spanish
mackerel, kingfish, bonito and shark around artificial
reefs and hard bottom. Not only do these fish provide
quick action, but they also fight hard.
Kimball next moves out to depths of 80 to 100 feet
of water to target red grouper. Using live pinfish, shiners
or threadfin herring, Kimball's charters are reeling up
keeper-size fish. Kimball's clients are catching Key West
grunts and porgies to round out the cooler.
