State Legislature
would have to allow
Keys wide vote
By KEVIN WADLOW
Sermor S lff Writer
k adl-',,. ,.. *2c. ynoter.com


SVisitor, to the Florida Keys
Help create local sewage prob-
S lems. a Monroe County Com-
russioner says, so they should
chip in to solve them.
George Neugent will suggest
at Wednesday's County Com-
mission meeting in Key Largo
that local governments pursue a
ne\ I -cent sales tax dedicated to
\% ater-treatment projects through-
out the Keys.
"In light of the fact that our
imnunih \ isitor contribute to the nutrient


load in our nearshore waters, they
ought to be paying for some of
this," Neugent said Friday.
To even hold a local referen-
dum on an additional sales tax,
Monroe County needs approval
from the state Legislature.
Neugent originally wanted to
ask for that approval during the
Legislature's special session in
mid-September to address state
budget shortfalls.
"I thought if we could get it
approved as an emergency bill in
September, we could hold the refer-
endum vote during the general elec-
tion in January," Neugent said.
"Now I have learned that is not pos-
sible, so we're in less of a rush."

The Monroe County Sheriff's

last year's Aug. 14 start date.


dents may find a little extra
room in classes and hallways
because enrollment is expected
to decline by about 200 stu-
dents.
Acevedo said the impact in
classrooms would be minimal,
at least for the time being.
"We've built our budget on
a decline in enrollment of
about 200 full-time equiva-
lents," Acevedo said. "The nice
thing about the class sizes is
that we are still striving to meet
[state-mandated class-size
reductions], so it hasn't caused


a classroom crowding. Who
might it affect later? We will
have a conversation regarding
Key West elementary schools."
According to Acevedo, the
district will focus on refining
and improving existing pro-
grams such as its pacing
guides, an instructional deliv-
ery system for teachers and a
pre-FCAT Monroe Benchmark
Assessment Test, rather than
introducing new programs.
"We implemented a lot of
new things last year," Acevedo
said.


Officers to patrol


essential areas

and a supervisory position,
will not be funded for the
upcoming school year. Instead,
the officer assigned to
Marathon will help with both
duties.
In late May, state-mandated
tax cuts resulted in the
Sheriff's Office nearly cutting
all but one of the officer posi-
tions. The decision was post-
poned after parents voiced
concerns at a May 22 School
Board meeting.
Schools Superintendent
Randy Acevedo said the
School Board was able to find
funding for the officers after
cutting back in departmental
discretionary spending and
capping district travel.
Acevedo said the district
was determined to find funding
for the positions, which he
feels are essential.
"I think they are critical to


and the things we hear about
that go on on campus,"
Acevedo said. "That's why we
felt it was important to find the
funding to retain the SROs,
especially in middle- to high-
school levels."
A crossing-guard position
at Sugarloaf School was cut in
order to help pay for the
resource officers. Acevedo
said he doesn't feel that will
create a safety hazard for stu-
dents.
"It's a very low number of
crosses and if it does become
an issue, the SRO at Sugarloaf
will assist," said Acevedo.
"They do that at Key Largo
and PKS."
Sheriff Rick Roth says he's
glad the positions could be sal-
vaged but that the situation is
not ideal.
"I'm glad we can keep at
least those five," Roth said. "I
wish we had them all, but we
all had to cut a number of posi-
tions. We had to cut a total of

HENDRICK / From 1

a hushed, humdrum office
wedged in the comer of Florida
Keys Community College's
library for no pay.
He studies maps to spot poten-
tial locations for dormitory hous-
ing. He examines budget num-
bers. He talks to staff about local
businesses, exploring synergistic
projects to boost the college.
His voice is a bit louder than a
murmur as he talks slowly, care-
fully, with a sense all knowing
yet without condescension. His
humor is dry and slightly
obscure, and when talking about
fulfilling his hours at various
local nonprofits, he quips:
"They're all happy to have a
cheerful slave."
Just more than four months
ago, Hendrick was in federal
court in Miami, awaiting sentenc-
ing from U.S. District Judge
Shelby Highsmith following his
conviction in a case involving a
$29,000 bribe paid to then-
County Commissioner Jack
London in 1997 to kick-start
redevelopment of the former
Hall's Fishing Camp in Marathon
into a 79-room resort.
He could have gotten years in
prison. But letters of support
swayed Highsmith to go with
probation.
Hendrick swears his nerves
were steady throughout the sen-
tencing process.
"After you spend most of your
professional career in it,' "court
just isn't as intimidating," he
said, adding his main concern
was getting released in time to
attend his daughter's wedding.
He was confined for three
weeks in the Stock Island
Detention Center and the Federal
Detention Center in Miami
before sentencing, where he
"sharpened his chess skills and
read a lot." He fed off the support
of his wife, two sons, daughter
and granddaughter. But family
wasn't his only lifeline.
"I cannot go anywhere in
town without people coming up
to me some of them I don't
even know saying they're
with me and my family," he said.
He said the court-ordered
community service is really an
extension of his charitable
q erdeayvos before his conviction
and that his finances are stable as


he continues land-use consulting.
He said his life is "completely
back to normal."
His law license was suspend-
ed in April and he's unsure if he
will be disbarred. That depends
on what happen with his pending
appeal.
He received his law degree
from the University of Miami in
1972. He practiced constitutional
and criminal law, and worked at
what was the Harris, Albury and
Morgan law firm in Key West,
now called the Law Offices of
Hugh Morgan.
Hendrick became county
attorney in 1995, serving until
2002.
Choosing to fulfill the first
500 hours of his community serv-
ice at the college was an accident.
New college President Jill
Landesberg-Boyle talked with
Hendrick about the need for dor-
mitories after bumping into him
at Chico's Restaurant on Stock
Island, and their conversation
,blossomed.
"Any progress that Jim makes
for us in the area of student hous-
ing will be leaps and bounds far-
ther than we could ever imagine
or afford without him,"
Landesberg-Boyle said in a pre-
pared statement.
"I think FKCC is under-recog-
nized," Hendrick said, "There is
tremendous talent here."
He added that there is a poten-
tial for up to 200 to 400 units to
be built directly on campus. He
said he's focusing on space near
the Public Safety Building rather
than the entrance area of the col-
lege. By that building, students
would have a waterfront view.
"It's a pretty important task
I've been given," he said.
He's interested in developing
possible business relationships
with companies and entities such
as Blue Water Marine, Ocean
Properties, the Lodging
Association of the Florida Keys
and Key West, RPM Nautical
Foundation and Safe Harbor to
help with land-use opportunities
for the college.
As for those who hoped for a
harsher penalty, Hendrick says
they don't bother him.
Said Hendrick: "People who
form their opinion about me from
what they read in the newspaper
aren't getting a very good idea of

Callahan says -
growth impedes
ocean access
Keynoter Staff

In December, a fire apparently
started by an untended barbecue
quickly claimed two homes on
Conch Key, and threatened to
take many more with it.
That blaze exposed a glaring
weakness in the county's fire pro-
tection a lack of adequate sup-
plies of water.
Firefighters said a nearby
hydrant didn't have enough water
pressure to supply the hoses, and
two fire wells, which are sup-
posed to tap into seawater below
the tide table, were dry.
At Wednesday's County
Commission meeting at the Key
Largo library, commissioners
will consider Acting County Fire
Chief James Callahan's request
to spend $135,100 to dig 15 new
fire wells throughout the county
and install a new fire hydrant in
Key Colony Beach.
"Growth has created a need
for increased water (fire flow) for
effective fire suppression opera-
tions, while at the 'samd time
diminishing the number of loca-


tions from which the fire depart-
ments can directly and rapidly
access ocean water for drafting
operations," he wrote in support-
ing reports.
The new wells would be at:
+ End of Bougainvillea
Avenue, Key Haven.
Cypress Avenue and
Cypress Terrace, Key Haven.
Sugarloaf Boulevard at Old
State Road 4A, Sugarloaf Key.
Middle Torch Road and
Dor Road, Middle Torch Key.
+ Newfound Harbor Boul-
evard, across from Paradise
Petroleum, Big Pine Key.
+ Ships Way at Harbor Lights

End of Pine Drive at mile

Keys Opinion


Penny sewer tax

worth a strong look

Drive past the new Coral Shores High School-and you see a
beautiful new Coral Shores High School.
Know who paid for a large chunk of it? That tourist who just
passed you on U.S. 1. Same thing with the new Key Largo
School that's rising.
Go by the new Marathon High School. That visitor on the way
to Sombrero Beach helped finance it.
Continuing south, tourists helped pay for the new Sugarloaf
School, Key West High School and Poinciana Elementary.
Visitors helped finance our new public schools because in both
October 1995 and again in September 2004, more than 70 per-
cent of Keys voters said yes to adding half a penny to the 7-cent
sales tax, with the money strictly dedicated for school construc-
tion and technology.
Locals realized our schools were in disrepair. Putting aside the
argument that perhaps such a fast-track construction program
wasn't needed since our student enrollment declines each year,
they knew the best way to fix the schools was to get help paying
for them.
So we're paying a bit, and visitor? pay a lot. And our students
have new top-grade school buildings because of it.
County Commissioner George Neugent is pitching adding
another penny to that 7.5-cent sales tax, and having the money
generated go strictly to building wastewater treatment systems.
Voters OK'd an additional tax paid by locals and tourists
alike for the schools, so why shouldn't they get to say
whether they want a similar fundraising stream for sewers?
"In light of the fact that our visitors contribute to the nutrient
load in our nearshore waters, they ought to be paying for some
of this," Neugent told Senior Staff Writer Kevin Wadlow in a
story on Page 1 of today's Keynoter.
To make such a vote possible, the state Legislature would have
to approve it, so the issue goes through state Rep. Ron Saunders.
He tells Wadlow more details need to be known, such as how
the money would be distributed. Would it be where the tax were
generated Marathon gets Marathon tax money, the unincor-
porated areas get money generated in those areas, etc.? Or is it
who's ready to build a sewer system first? These things would
need to be worked out with all local governments so voters
know exactly what they were voting on.
Neugent has none of those details yet, but some are sure to
come up. when he raises the issue Wednesday at the County
Commission meeting in Key Largo.
We know this much: Sewers are going to built, and each day,
the cost rises. And homeowners simply cannot spend $20,000 or
more to get hooked up.
It's worth a good hard look, this proposed additional penny
sales tax at the cash register. Because it would hurt a whole lot
less than the financial alternatives.

Maybe we should gamble on casinos to fund schools


EDITOR:
Your editorial of Aug. 8 mentioned the target
that school funding represents to our tax-cutting
Legislature. Here is a solution.
Since Gov. Charlie Crist is OK with gambling,
he could give the school districts a sovereign sta-
tus similar to that already enjoyed by the Indian
tribes of Florida. Applicable to lands owned by
the School District, they could then enter into


agreements with casino developers to build on
available sites. The schools would cut out the
middle man (i.e., the Legislature), which has used
gambling proceeds to replace education funding
rather than add to it.
Problem solved. However, gambling is anoth-
er problem. The easy money is pretty alluring.

Keys are greener thanks to Native Plant Fair


EDITOR:
The Nature Conservancy's Florida Keys
Program hosted its ninth annual Native Plant Fair
Aug. 4, providing a festive opportunity to acquaint
local residents with the beauty and ecological
importance of native flora in the Keys. The con-
servancy wishes to thank the Keys' community for
coming out to the event at the Big Pine Academy
and making it the best plant fair yet.
Made possible by a grant from the South
Florida Water Management District, the event
encourages Keys residents to landscape with
native plants by providing thousands of draught-
tolerant plants to local residents free of charge. A
great diversity of plants was offered this year,
including 18 species of trees, 13 varieties of
shrubs and nine types of ground covers.
A great thank you is due to the numerous mas-
ter gardeners who spend hours in the hot sun
helping our attendees choose the right plant for
the right place.
As part of the fair's goal of raising awareness
of local plant species and natural communities,
presentations and educational booths were made
available to visitors throughout the event. These
educational components provided a wonderful
opportunity for 17 local organizations to show-


case their efforts in environmental education and
conservation. Presentations from local experts on
butterfly gardening and water conservation as
well as a rain barrel workshop were very well
attended.
The conservancy would like to thank the vol-
Sunteers at the Native Plant Nursery at Dagny
Johnson Key Largo Hammocks Botanical State
Park, who grew and donated many of the rarer
plants found at the fair. We would also like to
thank all of our plant suppliers for bringing such
great quality natives.
Local nurseries like The Banyan Tree
(GreenThumb-certified) and Florida Keys Native
Nursery along with wholesale mainland suppliers
Casey's Corer Nursery and Veber's Jungle
Garden helped the conservancy provide the high-
est diversity of plants ever. These native plants
provide vital habitat and food for wildlife and
migratory birds and also help to preserve the orig-
inal ecological character of the Florida Keys.
The Nature Conservancy looks forward to
hosting its 10th annual Native Plant Fair in
Islamorada next year.

Keys vacation turns into a disaster


EDITOR:
Back in July, our family rented a home for a
week through a Realtor in Marathon.
When we arrived on Saturday and picked up
our keys from the Realtors' mailbox, we were left
a note that said the home we were staying in was
scheduled for roof repair on Monday. We had no
serious concerns of what that could possibly
entail.
Monday came and went: Tuesday came and
went. Wednesday morning, several large trucks
and an enormous dumpster plopped in the drive-
way. The roofers were there to rip off the entire
roof on our vacation. Debris was falling through
the ceiling inside the house, so the roofers had to
come in the home and move and cover all of the
furniture. That's not all.
Evidently a nest of large black ants was dis-
turbed and the ants began armying down the walls
inside the house. Hey, wait a minute, isn't this
supposed to be vacation?
The mess and noise were unbelievable. Our
emotions were off the charts, so to calm ourselves
we decided to go fishing for a few hours and get
away from the chaos. As we were beginning to
Il 0id ouir equipment, we came to find tfat Bt6isotbie'
had come up on the dock and stolen several of our


fishing rods.
We did receive restitution for the two days the
roofers were there but the fishing rods are gone.
Be careful.

Keys Opinion

'Vandenberg' would bring

upscale visitors who spend money


EDITOR:
Recently I was in Norfolk, Va., to
visit my month-old first granddaugh-
ter Cardie and used the opportunity
to visit the USS Vandenberg in
Colonna's Shipyard, where 60 work-
ers are preparing for it to have a new
life.
During my guided tour of Key
West's soon-to-be-artificial reef, I
had a flash of what should have been
obvious to me, as a scuba diver and
citizen of Key West, capital of the
Conch Republic.
I realized that as a scuba diver, the
Vandenberg project is the most excit-
ing dive event in my 46 years of div-
ing. The 520 foot-long Vandenberg,
and the dive access configuration,
will make our artificial reef
unmatched by any dive destination in
the world. When in place, it will be
suitable for all levels of divers from
open water, with 10 points of super-
structure just 40 feet below the sur-
face, to more advanced divers, with
multi-horizontal and vertical swim-
through access cuts into a superstruc-
ture resting in 140 feet of water.
That translates into anywhere
from 20 to 50 dives to explore the
new "reef" at varying depths,
depending on the diver's qualifica-
tions, as sea life grows and other
marine-life makes the Vandenberg
their new home.
For Key West, our new artificial
reef will be a gift from on high at a


time in which our reef is in dire
straits and Key West is upscaling and
rapidly becoming less affordable for,
many of our traditional visitors.
Scuba diving is an activity that is
not inexpensive, but the scuba divers
who travel to exotic dive destinations
such as Australia, Belize, Maui or the
Red'Sea will not be inhibited by our
accommodation expenses when the
Vandenberg is at the end of their dive
rainbow.
As tourists go, scuba divers are a
unique breed. They can afford to stay
in upscale accommodations and often
do, but will frequent the entire spec-
trum of eating, drinking and shop-
ping establishments. They will relish
our laid-back dress code and open,
friendly attitudes.
You might glean that my.
Vandenberg visit and tour triggered
my excitement, and you'd be right,
excitement as a long time diver and
excitement by the type of visitors the
Vandenberg will attract, visitors who
will not only benefit our economy
but will help preserve the funky, laid-
back Key West we love.

Development Council earlier this

Kids welcome health screenings


EDITOR:
Grace Jones Daycare would like
to thank the Florida Keys Area
Health Education Center and the
Early Learning Coalition of Miami-
Dade/Monroe for screening children
in our community.
The Health Education Center is an
affiliate of the University of Miami
School of Medicine and the Early
Learning Coalition of Dade/Monroe
County.
This health and wellness screen-
ing was offered at our center July 20
and was designed to detect any
vision, hearing, growth and/or dental
problems our children may have
been developing.
This was all done free for Wesley
House Family Services children and
a very small fee was charged for our
other children that wanted to partici-
pate.
A special thanks goes out to Joyce
Wagner (physician assistant), Lori
Denny (nurse), Tracey Codd (com-
munity health coordinator), Jackie
Eloy (administrative assistant) and


Michael Cunningham (executive
director) of the Health Education
Center for providing this wonderful
service to further health awareness in
the community.

Tell the war story
EDITOR:
Why can't the Keynoter bring a
little of the war back home here so
people can actually read what's
going on? So many other small-town
papers are doing this service.
Include the number of troops
killed, troops injured, coalition
troops killed, contractors killed, Iraqi
civilians killed and the cost of war in
billions.
If people knew what was going
on, there could be more collective
reaction and action to our remaining
there.

A Lower Keys sponger hooks a sponge on a flat near Big Pine Key. Some say the
economic benefits of sponging don't outweigh the damage it does to the
environment.


Spongers need to leave the flats


EDITOR:
It is time to put a stop to the raping of
the sponges that live on our flats in the
Keys.
I see small skiffs that pole over our flats
using sticks to flip the sponges in their
boats. The sponge is the habitat for all the
baby lobster, shrimp and other sea critters
and marine life that need a home to replen-


ish our environment. The combing of our
flats has got to stop.
I have written to the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary for help and I
am hoping the Keynoter will support this
endeavor.

Friends are there in time of mourning


EDITOR:
On behalf of me and our family, we
wish to extend a big thank you to all of
our friends for being there these past
weeks after the loss of my beloved wife
Barbie. They opened their homes to
house all of the out-of-towners of our
family and made them feel as if they
were part of our great Marathon family.
They managed to help move all of
the food and plants from our home
when we had to be tented for termites in


the middle of all that was going on. The
sympathy cards, flowers, plants, tele-
phone calls, e-mails, hugs and, most
especially, prayers were exactly what
we needed during this trying time.
We cannot thank everyone enough for
coming to our aid and for being such
good friends. Thanks again and God
bless.

thank Furniture Now! for its generous
donation of a loveseat to be used in the

We are indeed fortunate to have such
dedicated businesses like Furniture

Council OKs $29M sewer


Cinque, Vasil
dissent, saying
money's an issue
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
on Wednesday voted to approve a
resolution awarding Globetec
Construction a contract worth
nearly $29 million for the con-
struction of service areas four and
six of the city's proposed sewer
project.
The resolution passed 3-2,
with councilmen Mike Cinque
and Don Vasil dissenting. Both
have been outspoken against the
project moving forward without
significantly more state and fed-
eral funding.
Vice Mayor Marilyn Tempest,
who drafted the resolution, reiter-
ated it contains language allow-
ing the city a 180-day window to
back out of area six (Coco Plum
Drive/U.S. 1 corridor) construc-
tion should more funding not be
in place. Area four (Sombrero
Beach Road/U.S. 1 corridor) will
begin right away.
"As far as I'm concerned, I
won't dig another shovelful if
there isn't more money," Tempest
said. "I would have no problem
voting yes tonight and no six
months from now."
But it was that stance with
which Cinque had concerns.
"The problem I have moving
forward with [current funding] is


[Tempest] said she has no prob-
lem saying no six months from
now," he said. "If we commit to
area four, we have to commit to
the whole town."
"The vast majority [of resi-
dents] feel we need the sewers
but they do not want to commit to
this contract until there is funding
place," Vasil added.
Mayor Chris Bull said he is
working hard to see that the project
does receive additional funding.
"We have a 12- to 18-month
window to bring hundreds of mil-
lions of dollars to the Keys," he
said. "If we keep showing unity
and commitment, that will help
us with our endeavors at the state
and federal level."
Council also inched closer to
choosing a final methodology by
which to dole out sewer assess-
ment fees.
It voted 3-2 in favor of con-
tributing 15 percent of the pro-
ject's.cost from city capital infra-
structure funds, and 3-2 to not
contemplate just property value
in those assessments.
Councilman Pete Worthington
and Vasil argued for a 10 percent
contribution from infrastructure
funds so more money would be
available for other projects.
Cinque and Bull argued that
infrastructure funds are meant to be
used for projects like the sewers.
City sewer consultant Camille
Tharpe told council "my recom-
mendation would be to not use
value at all" regarding property


value as a component of assess-
ment fees. It has been said the
proposed methodology, never
used elsewhere in the state, could
be subject to legal scrutiny.
"We have consultants we're
paying good money for; she's
advised us not to do it,"
Worthington said of his deci-
sion to not support value in
assessments.
"I don't want this small town
to be burdened with the costs of
being first," Tempest said of the
potential lawsuits. "Marathon
isn't appropriate to be first in
setting a precedent with sewer
rates."
Vasil requested that for this
Tuesday's regularly scheduled
council meeting, staff present
split-charge methodology fig-
ures with assessment fees more
equitable between single-family
homes and single-family con-
dos. It is expected a final deci-
sion will be made on assess-
ment methodology at that meet-
ing, which starts at 5:30 p.m. at
the Marathon Government
Center.
In a separate item, council
unanimously approved a resolu-
tion approving an agreement
with Audio Visual Innovations
for the purchase of broadcast-
ready equipment not to exceed
$121,725.
The equipment will be used
at the new fire station at Florida
Keys Marathon Airport. The
city is discussing holding future
council meetings there.

1-cent sales tax would go to sewers


TAX / From 1

Wednesday's commission agenda
"to put it in the forefront of [fellow
commissioners'] minds so every-
body can think about it before we
bring it up at a later date."
If approved, a 1-penny sales
tax could raise an estimated $20
million to $30 million annually
for sewer and stormwater sys-
tems in unincorporated Monroe
County and local municipalities.
"Visitors would pay 50 per-
cent of that," Neugent said.
Monroe County and local
cities face a state-imposed 2010
deadline to build and use sewers
and advanced wastewater-treat-
ment systems, aimed at lessening
damage to the Atlantic Ocean and
Florida Bay.
State "officials pledged that
grants would cover at least half
the total costs, estimated at per-
haps $500 million countywide.
However, funding has been


below expectations, ard this
year's state budget shortfall
means no money is marked for
Keys wastewater projects.
The 2010 deadline remains,
and state legislators do not seem
likely to change it, Neugent said.
Without outside support,
Monroe County residents could
face costs of $20,000 per house-
hold to build and connect the
wastewater systems in areas now
using septic tanks, he said. "A lot
of residents cannot afford to pay
the full cost."
"If [the state] is not going to
subsidize this, for the state
Legislature to not allow us anoth-
er avenue of offsetting the costs
would be morally empty, in my
opinion," Neugent said.
State Rep. Ron Saunders said
the September session will only
address the state's immediate
budget problems.
"Even if there were some type
of unanimous agreement [on the
sales tax] among the county and


municipalities which, there isn't
- there still would be a lot of
details to work out first," Saunders
said. "We need some kind of dis-
tribution and spending plan."
Saunders is trying to create a
$500 million state bond issue to
fund Keys sewer costs.
Neugent- said he has spoken
with some elected city officials,
and found general support for the
sales-tax concept.
County Administrator Tom
Willi said Wednesday a new local
sales tax could be "a tough sell"
in the Legislature.
Even if lawmakers approve
the referendum, Willi said, Keys
voters are in as much an anti-tax
mood as the rest of the state, and
likely wouldn't pass it.
In 1995 and 2004, Monroe
County voters overwhelmingly
approved a half-cent sales tax
dedicated to rebuilding local
schools. The tax generates about
$10 million annually.

No impact fees
resurrect plans
for restaurant
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Bettye Chaplin says her fami-
ly's dream of building a water-
front restaurant on Knights Key
is alive and well after seemingly
flat-lining only three months ago.
Chaplin says she "has no
choice" but to see the plan she's
been working toward for upwards
of 10 years come to fruition.
"We have over $500,000
invested in the property... 10
years of fighting," she said. "We
can't back up and say our dream
is gone. We want to build this
restaurant" on land at the base of
the Seven Mile Bridge.
Chaplin said it was the
Marathon City Council's May
decision to vote down an ordi-
nance establishing impact fees to
finance affordable housing that
revived the vision of Chappy's, as
the eatery will be called.
Chaplin did admit that if the
right buyers come along, she
would still be interested in selling


the property but only if it's
developed into a restaurant.
"We're going to go forward
until someone comes and says
'Hey, it's a good idea, we'll take
it over,'" she said, noting the
length of time that has passed
since planning began. "At 55 and
53, [she and husband Jim] were a
whole lot younger and energetic."
But Chaplin said the plan is
still to obtain a building permit
before the end of the year.
She estimates the restaurant
will cost upward of $2 million to
construct, but is adamant
Marathon would appreciate the
finished product.
"We've lost a sense of com-
munity here and that's what
Jimmy and I hope to bring back,"
Chaplin said. "That's exactly
what Chappy's will be."
The Chaplin family has.owned
nine lots on Knights Key for 12
years and keeps a file grown thick
over the years detailing opposi-
tion they have faced in their
efforts to see the restaurant built.
When the major conditional
use approving the 5,800-square-
foot restaurant passed in 2006,
the family had agreed to multiple

Gonzalez contract up for vote


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Marathon City Manager Mike-
Puto says Gonzalez Brothers
Landscaping was the only bidder
on a city contract to provide land-
scaping and maintenance services
for city parks and beaches.
The City Council is expected
to vote on whether to award the
contract, which is not to exceed
$350,000, at Tuesday's regularly
scheduled meeting, set for 5:30
p.m. at the Marathon Govern-
ment Center.
Puto said between 15 and 20
packets were issued, but only
Gonzalez made an official bid.
"Why other people didn't bid,
I don't know," he said. "They
came through and it's up to the
council whether they accept it."
Puto said council requested
the :contracts, due to expire in
October, be put out to bid. In the
interest of affording all local
companies an opportunity, they
were able to bid on the contract in
fr separate ways: Jesse Hobbs


and Rotary Children's parks,
Marathon Community Park,
Sombrero and Coco Plum beach-
es, or all three it once.
Puto said specialized equip-
ment is needed to carry out cer-
tain aspects of the contract, which
Gonzalez had already purchased
while under contract. If awarded
the bid, prospective companies
were offered the option to secure
the necessary equipment within
30 days.
Gonzalez was formerly under
contract to maintain both the
city's rights of way and the events
field between 98th and 99th
streets, where city hall trailers are
located. Both locations are now
being maintained by the city
using a Sheriff's Office employee
and three jail trustees serving
time for minor offenses.
"Council wanted us to do
some more things in house and
now that we have the trustees
helping us out, we can save
money there," Puto said, noting


significant savings to the city in
the future.
The city had been under con-
tract with Gonzalez for $113,000
to maintain the city's right of way
and $37,440 for the events field.
Other agenda items include:
A report from Puto updating
the status of the 33rd Street boat
ramp and City Marina bath-house
projects.
A resolution authorizing the
city to agree with USI Insurance
Services to provide health, den-
tal, disability and life insurance to
its employees.
Several council members, led
by Mike Cinque, suggested fur-
ther savings could be negotiated
on the plan at the proposed budg-
et review July 30.
Two resolutions authorizing
continuing services agreements
for storm-debris removal.
Aresolution authorizing the
fiiirchase of a 2007 Isuzu diesel
dump truck for not more than
$41,136. The truck will be used
by Public Works to maintain the
rights of way..

deed restrictions including build-
ing a pool for residents, planting
75 trees and installing a fence to
"keep people from meandering"
into the adjacent residential
neighborhood. They even agreed
to close by 10 p.m.
Chaplin said the late Tracy
Holder, a Cay Clubs Resorts and
Marinas executive, was largely
responsible for the roadblocks the
family had faced in the past.
"He rallied the whole neigh-
borhood of Knights Key. They
thought the zoning was going to
ruin the neighborhood," she
remembered, adding it was
Holder's idea for the pool.
But Chaplin said she feels
good things happen in good time.
"I'm willing to let go of the
past," she explained.
Chaplin said she appreciates
the support of Vice Mayor
Marilyn Tempest, as well as the
expected support of councilmen
Mike Cinque and Don Vasil, in
finally seeing the restaurant built.
"I would love to think we
would have it ready for the sea-
son of January 2009," she said.
"All I can say is we are progress-
ing and we're doing what
we can."

July low temperatures hotter than ever


A/C service
also at an
all-time high
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter:com

Even for a Florida Keys sub-
tropical summer, this has steam-
ing season has been one for the
record books.
July was as hot as it gets in the
Keys, ever.
"July tied the record for the
warmest month on record," said
Andrew Devanas, science officer
at the National Weather Service
office in Key West.
The average temperature for
July was in meltdown range at
86.8 degrees.
Only two other months since
record keeping for Key West
began in 1874 were that hot for


average temperature: July 1881
and July 1967.
"The month of July is just
hot," Devanas said. "When you
get days when the temperature
goes above 90 and the dew point
is in the mid-70s, that's just hot
and humid. There's no other way
to describe it."
Temperatures have started to
moderate somewhat, since a
high-pressure system over the
southeast U.S. that trapped the
heat has started to move.
The record-setting July was
caused not so much by record high
temperatures measured in Key
West although there were those
- but by a string of low tempera-
tures that were not low at all.
On July 26, "the low tempera-
ture was 87 degrees. That not
only broke the daily record [for
hottest low temperature] but also
broke the record for the warmest


low temperature ever recorded in
Key West on any date," the
Weather Service reported.
Various atmospheric factors
played roles in keeping it swelter-
ing, Devanas said, but a big one
was the lack of wind.
"On several instances, we
were not under the usual south-
easterly flow," he said. "We had a
lot of days this year with light
winds, which means more heat-
ing on the surface."
No one had to tell Keys air-
conditioning companies.
Windswept Air Conditioning
and Appliance in Marathon has
been constantly busy, despite
adding two new service techni-
cians, co-owner Bonnie Cadbury
said.
"It's a seven-day-a-week busi-
ness now," she said. "We've had
as many calls as ever, and the
people probably are more
demanding.
"They used to say there was


no rush because they could open
the window to catch the breeze.
Not this summer, because there is
no breeze."
The Weather Service's Key
West observations for July
included:
The daily low temperature
was the highest its ever been on
12 dates.
The high of 94 degrees on
July 11 was a record for the day,
and the first 94-degree reading in
the Keys in 16 years.
+ Only one day in July did not
reach 90 degrees. It went to 93
degrees three times in the last
week of July. Before that, 93
degrees had been recorded only
twice since 2000.
On 15 days, the .low tem-
perature was 83 degrees or
warmer.
Low temperatures above 85
degrees had only been record
twice before in Key West. In July,
it happened three times.


"All of these were based on
one instrument panel at one obser-
vation point," Devanas said. "But
there is no reason to discount the
observations. It was hot."
Keys residents apparently
know how to get through the heat.
The number of patients seeking
treatment for heat-related prob-
lems is in line with other years,
said Mariners Hospital spokes-
woman Sheila Konczewski.

Islamorada raises fees


Trash hauling,
stormwater costs
rise for 2008
By ERIN EHRLICH
eehrlich@keysreporter.com

The Islamorada Village
Council on Thursday increased
fees for stormwater, sewers and
trash collection for the 2007-08
fiscal year.
Residents will pay $286.90
per home for trash pickup, about
$62 per 3,322 square feet of
runoff area for stormwater serv-
ices, and $42 per tax parcel for
wastewater services.
Businesses, schools and other
non-residential units will pay the
same as residences for stormwa-
ter services and $496 per tax par-
cel for wastewater.
Councilman Michael
Reckwerdt and Mayor Dave
Boerer voted against the
stormwater assessments, saying
they would unnecessarily
increase the burden on taxpayers.
"Our poor little taxpayers
have a basket and we keep
throwing rocks in it," Reckwerdt


said.
Boemer agreed and said the
fees are excessive.
Reckwerdt was concerned
about stormwater fees for prop-
erties with driveways made of
pervious material like gravel
compared to those with impervi-
ous material like concrete.
He wanted to be sure that pea
rock is considered pervious so
stormwater assessments, based on
the square footage of an area sub-
ject to stormwater runoff, would
be lower for residents and busi-
nesses with pea-rock driveways.
Zully Hemeyer, road and
parks administrator, said pea
rock is pervious material.
The council discussed giving
credit toward stormwater service
fees for residential units with
privately maintained stormwater
management facilities or other
factors affecting the quantity or
quality of stormwater runoff.
In other action Thursday, the
council:
Agreed to start preparing
construction documents for a
community center at Founders
Park. It will be designed to with-


stand winds up to 175 mph,
which will increase the costs of
the design about 5 percent. The
council asked project manager
Ron Levy and Daryle Osbom of
Keys Engineering Services Inc.
to prepare a new set of docu-
ments for the marina bathroom
pavilion, including a new design
of back-to-back bathrooms
instead of a linear building.
Reduced compensation for
Village Council members to $900
from $1,000 starting Oct. 1. The
reduction will last for one year
unless the council extends it.
Increased Founders Park
non-resident entrance fees for
holiday weekends Memorial
Day, Labor Day and the Fourth
of July to $15 for adults and
$10 for children under 10. The
council said the increase is
because of hazards discovered
last Memorial Day, including
health problems, unruly behav-
ior and excessive litter.
Additional fire and police staff
will be placed on duty during
holidays.
Current non-resident fees are
$4 per adult 18 to 63, $3 for
youths 10 to 17 and for seniors,
and $4 for kids 3 to 9.

Waste hauling falls


behind revenue


Village Council
OKs giving Onyx
$91,592 payment
By ERIN EHRLICH
eehrlich@keysreporter.com

Waste-disposal revenue
declines could lead to a reduction
in the amount of garbage
Islamorada residents are allowed
to throw out each week.
Residents may soon be limited
to six 32-gallon cans weekly.
At a Tuesday budget meeting,
Onyx Waste Services, the vil-
lage's trash hauler, asked for a
reimbursement of $191,005.67 to
compensate for an excess of resi-
dential waste disposal.
The council unanimously
agreed the requested amount was
too high, and instead gave direc-
tion to Village Manager Gary
Word to negotiate a $91,592
reimbursement.
Bruce Williams, local manag-
er of Onyx, said an increase in
yard waste the past few years has
put the company behind in terms
of revenue.
It currently collects waste
from 3,928 homes in Islamorada,
and with the disposal cost and
tons of waste per home increas-
ing yearly, Onyx incurred about
15,6.260.34 in additional costs in
just 2006-07, he said.
Williams said since 2003, the
lotal additional cost by Onyx is the
01 ,005.67 figure, emphasizing
he was not asking for any more
than what was required to "cover
all the years we were short."
Councilman Michael
Reckwerdt said he was in favor
of I miting the number of garbage
cans per home, and said he thinks
On\x deserves some money to
help bring its costs down.
"Onyx did pick up a lot of
slack for. us by doing stuff pro
bono [during the storm seasons]
and keeping our residents
happy," Reckwerdt said.
Vice Mayor Cathi Hill agreed.
"Every time there's a com-
plaint, [Williams] is on it like
white on rice," she said.
Because the meeting was a
\\ workshop and not a regular meet-
ing, the council could only give
direction to Word, and the matter
Sill be brought up for a vote at a
i later Jime, i .

Founders Park loan
The loan amount for the mari-
na improvement project at
Founders Park has been
increased from $2 million to
$2.916 million due to uncertainty
over reimbursement of Federal
Emergency.Management Agency
money.
The contract's been awarded
to Shoreline Foundation Inc. and
is for $400,000 more than pro-
jected.
Finance Director Alice
Filinovich said the village hopes
to get FEMA reimbursement for
the damage to the marina caused
by Hurricane Wilma in 2005.
S"It's not guaranteed," she said.
"We hope [they give us the
money] because all those funds
will help us to reduce these con-
struction costs."
Also changed in the budget
was a reduction of fuel expenses
by $51,300.

Operating budget
Also Tuesday, the council
reviewed the final operating
budget, which comes to a total of
$10,647,174 $579,708 less
than the current fiscal year.
The millage, or property tax
rate, was not discussed at the
workshop, and the budget will be
adopted at a later date.

Housing work sees results


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Community groups recently
did their part to make Key West's
affordable-housing problem a lit-
tle less of a problem in Bahama
Village.
And as 10 low-income units
go online in that community, the
Alliance of Community Housing
continues to work in the back-
ground, fine-tuning a plan its
members call Helping 1,000
Families in 1,000 Days to
increase and maintain already
existing affordable units, primari-
ly in Key West.
The Southernmost Homeless
Assistance League, state
Department of Children and
Families Services, the Bahama
Conch Community Land Trust
and Kinky Construction revealed
their project to refurbish 10 low-
income units in Bahama Village
for families and the working
homeless Friday.
The groups garnered $750,000
in state funds for the project. The
rooms were placed at 209 Petronia,
as well as 307 and 307 1/2 Julia
St., which used to be a bar.
The rooms should be ready for


occupancy Friday, according to
SHAL Executive Director Wendy
- oles. She said the review team,
for the project included players
such as Florida Keys Outreach
Coalition Executive Director
Stephen Braddock, Land Trust
Director Norma Jean Sawyer-
Atanda, businessman Barry
Gibson, Assistant City Manager
John Jones and Mike Skoglund of
Kinky Construction.
As for the alliance's efforts,
"preservation" was a key word at
its Wednesday meeting.
A full table of community and
leaders and concerned citizens
had their fair share of questions
regarding the initiative, and resi-
dent Diane Beruldsen called the
1,000 units an "arbitrary number."
Keys Federal Credit Union
Chief Executive Officer John
Dolan-Heitlinger, who was facili-
tating the meeting in
Chairwoman Lisa Tennyson's
absence, acknowledged that fact,
and said that to make progress,
you must have a goal.
"You've got to figure out how
to hang on to what you've got,"
Dolan-Heitlinger said of existing


low-income units.
As for new units, according to
a financial strategy update, prop-
erties reviewed for potential
development include areas such
as Trumbo Point, the Mole at
Truman Annex, Poinciana Place
Apartments, Porter Place, Fort
Village, Roosevelt Sands and
select mobile-home parks.
Funding was named as an
obvious obstacle and alliance
member Donna Windle said tax
increases could be explored -
mentioning that other cities have
increased taxes on alcoholic bev-
erages in bars for similar efforts.
They also explored the possibili-
ty of using the land trust model.
Other obstacles identified are
building codes, public opinion,
environmental regulations, liv-
able wages and available land.
"I'm not suggesting ever
- that we turn the Keys into high
rises, but some rulings are out-
rages," County Commissioner
Dixie Spehar said.
City consultant Paul Clayton
suggested offering residents
incentives such as home renova-
tions in exchange for changing
their units' designations to
"affordable housing."

'Cuda blamed for attack


By KRISTIN BURNIE
kburie@keysreporter.com


Despite claims a bull shark
was responsible for biting a
Jacksonville woman in
Islamorada Tuesday, some
wildlife experts say a barracuda
was more likely responsible.
Ashley Silverman, 19, was on
a boat at Bud 'n Mary's Marina
on Lower Matecumbe Key when,
despite reported warnings from
friends, she jumped in the water.
Silverman was taken to
Mariners Hospital before being
transported to Baptist Hospital in
Kendall, where she was treated
for severe nerve and tissue dam-
age and underwent extensive sur-
gery the following day.
Reports from various news
sources said a bull shark was like-
ly to blame.
But George Burgess, director
of the Florida Program for Shark
Research and Web.editor for the


International Shark Attack File,
told The Reporter the wound pat-
tern and the circumstances sur-
rounding the attack point to a bar-
racuda.
"I have interviewed the origi-
nal treating physician at Mariners
Hospital and based on our con-
versation, it would appear that the
bite was perpetrated by a barracu-
da, not a shark," Burgess said.
"Big 'cudas are very common
lurkers under docks and shaded
overhangs, and are particularly
attracted to areas where they get
free food. Marinas are wonderful
places to get the latter."
Bruce Stoll, assistant chief of
operations for Islamorada Fire
Rescue, said according to reports
from officers, nobody involved
saw the animal.
"From our standpoint, we
couldn't tell you what it was that
bit her," Stoll said, "and from our


report, nobody there got a look at
what it was."
According to Mariners spokes-
woman Sheila Konczewski, Dr.
Thomas Steed, who initially treat-
ed Silverman, was unable to iden-
tify the animal responsible for the
attack.
But some wildlife officials
doubt that a bull shark was
responsible for the bite, which
was reportedly about 8 inches
long and 3 inches wide.
"I've been down here over 18
years and that's the first shark
attack that I've heard of," said
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission Officer
Bobby Dube. "I would think if it
was a 10-foot bull shark, she
wouldn't have an arm at all."
According to the International
Shark Attack File, 18 unprovoked
shark attacks have occurred in the
Keys since 1882.

Castaway seems to

adjust to new home


By KRISTIN BURNIE
kburnie@keysreporter.com


Castaway, a deaf bottlenose
dolphin who was recently
moved from the Marine
Mammal Conservancy in Key
Largo to Dolphins Plus, a multi-
dolphin facility in Key Largo, is
reportedly doing well in her new
environment.
According to Dolphins Plus
curator Art Cooper, Castaway
has shown more interest in tak-
ing her meals and interacting
with staff, and on Wednesday
swam voluntarily to the plat-
form where she receives her
meals and medical attention for
the first time.
"She voluntarily swims up to
the platform that we lower about
3 feet into the water," Cooper
said. "That's where we do the
medical procedures with her, but


she also likes to swim there to be
rubbed down by staff."
Castaway, who is completely
deaf and sees out of only one eye,
stranded herself near Fort Pierce
in November. She garnered
national attention in June after
giving birth to a calf, Wilson,
who died five days after birth.
Federal fisheries authorities
wanted Castaway moved out of
the Marine Mammal Conser-
vancy since they had determined
she was no longer rehabilitating,
and on July 25 was sent three
miles south to Dolphins Plus,
where she is housed in a saltwa-
ter pen with two other female
dolphins. Dolphins Plus is a dol-
phin-encounter facility.
Cooper said Dolphins Plus
would continue to give positive
reinforcement to Castaway.

hopefuls.
This week, retired Michigan
attorney George Maurer was the
latest to enter the fray, eyeing the
District 4 City Commission seat
now held by Harry Bethel. Bethel
is running for the Utility Board
rather than seeking re-election to
the commission.
Also competing for that com-
mission seat is Key West Shades
owner Barry Gibson and attorney
and Planning Board member
Richard Klitenick.
Maurer. who ran against then-
state Rep. Ken Sorensen twice,
prides himself on being an envi-
ronmentalist.


He is a board member of the
Florida Keys Outreach Coalition
and the Alliance for Aging for
Monroe County. He volunteers
with Meals on Wheels, as well.
He said he would continue the
never-ending fight for affordable
housing, citing Big Coppitt or
Ramrod keys as prime property
possibilities for development of
such projects.

Harbor dredging complete


2005 storms
pushed back
the end date
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The 2005 hurricane season


was a roadblock, but the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers has
managed to complete Naval Air
Station Key West's project -
dredging the 6-mile-long Key
West Harbor. Now the two enti-
ties are exploring a long-term
maintenance contract.
Hurricanes dumped sand and
rocks back into the channel as it
was already in the process of
being dredged out, pushing back
the project completion time.
The dredging began in 2004
and was aimed at increasing effi-
ciency of the harbor as the Navy
developed a training strategy
that earmarked NAS Key West
as a key spot for military ships to
visit, base spokeswoman Trice
Denny said.
The dredging, which dug out
sand and r ckEi tjeeiep
allows for entry ot "'bigger shlps


than we were previously able to
let in," Denny said.
The Corps of Engineers
dredged up 819,000 cubic yards
of half sand and rock rubble and
half silt and sand mix in the 300-
foot-wide channel.
The debris was placed in an
upland disposal site 13 miles


south of Key West and the silt
and sand mix was brought to the
north end of Fleming Key.
"It allows us to utilize the
Mole Pier to bring Navy ships
in," Denny said., "It put the har-
bor depth back to what it was
originally about three years
ago."
The dredging ship leaves Key
West Monday.

Judge drops Noe charges


Ohio sued Keys
woman after
husband's jailing
Associated Press

A Columbus, Ohio, judge has
dismissed conspiracy and other
civil charges against the wife of
a Republican fundraiser and coin
dealer who's serving an 18-year
prison sentence for his part in an
investment scandal that has cost
Ohio $300 million.
The eight counts that were
filed by the state against
Bernadette Noe of Tavernier, the
wife of Tom Noe and a former
chairwoman of 'the Lucas
County (Ohio) Republican Party,
were dismissed last week by
Judge David Cain of Franklin
County Common Pleas Court.
The ruling cannot be
appealed and leaves Bernadette
Noe free from the state's claim
on her Keys home, which is
worth between $4 million and $5
million, said Leo Jennings, a
spokesman for Ohio Attorney
General Marc Dann.
In addition to the conspiracy
count, Cain dismissed civil
counts of aiding and abetting,
recovery of public moneys, and
unjust enrichment, among oth-
ers, against Bernadette Noe. She
did not face any criminal
charges.

In ~L1ting MemoryO of

Grace Maureen Mount
You will be missed so much. Your memory will be in all our hearts. The day of
your passing will never go unforgotten, and the day of your birth will not go
uncelebrated. God blessed this earth the day he brought you into this world, July
3, 1944. And he blessed heaven the day you passed, August 5, 2007.
"Bye to this place with a smile She will be remembered as the most loving mother of her 4 surviving kids, 3 sons,

all her grand babies,10 plus 1 that's with her in heaven now, Shawn Jr., Alex,
Morgan, Alyssa, Everett IV, Christian, Laila, Jordan, Cierra, Kaitlyn and Kailey Breanna (may she rest in peace). And her
2 big sisters, Rose (Re) and Teddy. And her adopted kids, Torie, Dianna, Gilbert, Brenda. They were more than just inlaws.
SMy mother was born in Pennsylvania but raised in the Keys. She always said this was her home (Marathon) and
that she would never leave. She was the lead guitarist in the first band, "Three Hits and a Miss," in Marathon at the
Overseas Lounge back in the early 60's. She loved music; it was her second nature. Many of you readers may
remember her as "Amazin Grace." That's what she was- Amazing. She was only 63 when she passed of a life-
threatening cancer that was diagnosed 5 weeks before. That caused her to have a stroke and loss of brain cells and
hemmoraging in the brain, which made it hard for her to talk. Everything happened so fast, from one day to the next
we were all hoping for the best, wanting her to get stronger. But they say she's in a better place now with our father,
Skip, her mother, Grace, and her granddaughter, Kailey. Mother may you rest in peace and watch over us. We love
you and hope to see you in another life someday.
A MEMORIAL SERVICE TO CELEBRATE HER LIFE WILL BE HELD AT
SOMBRERO BEACH ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 11, 2007 FOR FRIENDS AND FAMILY
BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 12PM AND 6PM WITH LIVE BANDS.

In May 2005, then-Ohio
Attorney General Jim Petro, also
a Republican, filed the lawsuit
against the Noes as news
emerged of an unorthodox $50
million state investment in rare
coins managed by Tom Noe for
the Ohio Bureau of Workers'
Compensation. The suit is still
pending against Tom Noe.
Tom Noe was sentenced in
November to 18 years in state
prison for embezzling millions
from the investment. He also
was sentenced to serve two years
and three months for pleading


guilty earlier to illegally funnel-
ing $45,000 to President Bush's
re-election campaign.
Bernadette Noe is a child-
welfare attorney for the state of
Florida, said her lawyer, Charles
Ticknor HI.
The bureau lost more than
$300 million in investments
since 1998, when Tom Noe
received the first of two $25 mil-
lion contracts to invest in rare
coins. More than $215 million of
the total was lost through invest-
ments in hedge funds and other
high-risk ventures unrelated to
the coin investments.

New storm products in


British-made
materials protect
against wind, water
By PAMELA SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor

Two hurricane-damage pre-
vention products developed in the
most unlikely of places Great
Britain are now available in
the Keys.
Terry and Mary Thomas, Big
Pine Key, are the newly author-


ized dealers and certified
installers of FastNet, a wind dam-
age mitigation system; and
Floodgate, which is designed to
prevent flood water from entering
ground level structures.
Mary Thomas said FastNet
was initially used to protect the
roofs of buildings near a British
airport.
"Whenever the planes would
fly over, they would rip the slate
and tile off the roofs," Thomas
said. "FastNet is like a giant hair-


net, so to speak, made of metal
strands that criss-cross over your
roof and are secured into the sof-
fits with anchors. It's permanent,
so there is no last-minute installa-
tion when a storm is coming."
FastNet literature states the
system is designed to hold tiles or
shingles on a roof in up to 155-
mph winds. Thomas said it is
backed by a 25-year guarantee.
The Thomases had the
FastNet system installed on the
roof of Reef Light Tackle, their

It's back-to-school time, so

Windows-based PCs in the,
$800-to-$1,000 range.


You can spend less than a

Locals go deep in six episodes

New network
discovers Keys
dive treasures
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com -


aThe video crew for the new
television series "Treasure
Divers" got an early lesson while
taping the first episode.
"They were hoping we'd take
them out on.the ocean, then start
bringing up gold and silver,"
laughed longtime Keys treasure
hunter Carl Fismer.
"I had to tell them, this isn't
that easy. If it came in. a bottle,
everybody would have it," said
Fismer, who stars in the true-life
series with Gary Mace, owner of
Conch Republic Divers in
Tavernier.
More than a year in the mak-
ing, "Treasure Divers" debuts at
noon Aug. 19 on Treasure HD, a
high-definition channel created by
the Voom HD network and "dedi-
cated to what people treasure in
life, from antiques to adventures."
Six hour-long episodes follow
Mace and Fismer as they search
wreck sites off the Upper Keys,
Key West and the Dry Tortugas, in
addition to sites near St.
Augustine, Jacksonville, Sarasota,
Fort Pierce and Bimini.
"To see it all come together is
amazing. I've seen the first
episode, and I can't believe it
came out so well," Mace said.
"It's a lot of fun but there's a lot of

"Capt. Fizz" Fismer serves as
guide, relying on his 37 years as a
professional treasure seeker with
dives on more than 300 wrecks.
"I didn't stay very long on
some of them," he said. "You
learn to separate the wheat from
the chaff pretty quickly."
Mace, a veteran diver and mas-

catching the treasure bug from
Fismer.
"I've always been fascinated
by treasure hunting," Mace said.
"Then one day Fizz walks into the

his knowledge is incredible."

and the "Shadow Divers" best-
selling book joins the crew for an
expedition off Mayport, near
Jacksonville.
Staffers from Conch Republic
Divers show up in episodes, along
with Carrie Caignet, director of
the History of Diving Museum in
Islamorada.
Larry Morales, who has
worked for NBC, headed the
video crew.
"The high-definition footage,
above and below the water, is
amazing," Fismer said. "I've
never seen better."
"When I first saw myself on
high-def TV, yikes!" Mace said. "I
learned that I'm no actor. It's hard
just to be yourself when you've
got that big [camera] eye pointed
at you. But Fizz is a natural."
The dive boat often was
accompanied by a chase boat for
filming purposes.
"Sometimes they'd bring in a
helicopter, and that was exciting,"
Fismer said. "They'd bring it right
down close to water next to the
boat."

known wrecks, on Spanish
wrecks from the 1715 fleet and
1733 fleet. Locations included the
Deadeye Bone Yard in the Gulf of
Mexico and The Caves near the
Tortugas.
"There's only two ways to find
something: accident or good
research," Fismer said.
"Fishermen find about 90 percent
of wrecks. The shrimpers keep
good records on where their nets
get hung up."
Mace, a former police officer,
compared treasure hunting to "a


detective chasing down leads."
"You get the research, then try
to organize the boats and equip-
ment and people to get out there,"
Mace said. "It takes a lot of time,
more than we expected."
In one episode of "Treasure
Divers," the crew finds the wreck
of a steel-hulled ship, believed to
be at least a century old. "It's
probably an old steamship,"
Fismer said. "Judging by stuff
that's still on it, I'm convinced it's
a virgin wreck. I don't think any-
one was on it before."
The Keys once had a fleet of
treasure-hunting boats, but decla-
ration of the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary limit-
ed excavation of historic artifacts
and disturbance to the sea floor.
"The sanctuary treated us very
well for this project," Fismer said.
"You can still go look for wrecks,
but now you just have to do it by
the rules."
Fismer gave up a firefighting
career in Sarasota to pursue his
treasure quest in the Keys. "I was
coming down here every chance I
got anyway," he said.
He got his first lesson in seek-
ing treasure from legendary salvor
Art McKee. "I thought I was
going to hear this great secret. Art
said, 'Don't quit.'
Mace adopted his own mantra
throughout the long shooting: "If
you don't go out there, you'll
never find it."
Popularity of the series will
decide if there is a Season 2 of
"Treasure Divers."
"I hope so," Fismer said.
"There's a lot more wrecks out
there. We're working with Jack
Haskins on a project in the
Bahamas..."

nels from Voom TV are carried on

in 1772, Sieur Freminet of France
invented a "rebreathing" device
that recycled the exhaled air from
inside a barrel. Other predeces-
sors to Cousteau's aqualung
include:
1865: Benoit Rouquayrol
and Auguste Denayrouse patent-
ed an apparatus for underwater
breathing. It allowed a diver to
disconnect the tether and dive
with just the tank on his back for
a few minutes.
' + 1876: Henry Fleuss devel-
oped the first workable, self-con-
tained diving rig that used com-
pressed oxygen.
1933: Yves Le Prieur modi-
fied the Rouquayrol-Denayrouse
invention by combining a
demand valve with a high-pres-
sure air tank to give the diver


complete freedom from hoses
and lines.
These facts and more are on
tap for the next free seminar at
the History of Diving Museum,
mile marker 83, at 7 p.m.
Wednesday.

'Volleyball is her passion'


VOLLEYBALL / From 27

establish a feeder program for
the high school.
The daughter of a coach and
schools superintendent, Hulme
played high-school volleyball
in Ohio and club volleyball at
Allegheny College in
Pennsylvania. She also coached
Junior Olympic players in
Medina, Ohio.
Her most recent job, howev-
er, was not in coaching or
teaching. She was the sales
director for a resort near
Sarasota.


But a desire to teach in the
Florida Keys "I like the
island feel," she said, recalling
family diving trips to Marathon
- led her to the HOB job and,
through conversations with
Fraga, the Conch coaching
position.
Hulme succeeds Rick
Ridenour, who coached for
three seasons. Last season,
expectations were high but the
Conchs couldn't win close
matches and finished 2-18, los-
ing their last match in the dis-
trict tournament they played
host to for the first time.
This season's team, which


Hemingway is member


IGFA / From 27

inductees and their contributions
are:
+ Outdoors writer Homer
Circle, who's covered the fishing
scene for more than 50 years,
including more than 35 years as
angling editor of Sports Afield
magazine.
+ Ruben Jaen, a Venezuelan
who's a pioneer in light-tackle
billfishing in that country. The car-
diovascular surgeon introduced
nighttime swordfishing and
caught the first broadbill in
Caribbean waters, and has
released more than 3,000 billfish.
+ Gary Loomis, who revolu-
tionized tackle design with his
advances in graphite rod produc-
tion, and G Loomis went on to
become one of the most successful
rod-making companies in the U.S.
+ Peter Wright, a world-
renowned angler, scientist, jour-
nalist, consultant, and an advocate
of circle hooks and tag-and-
release.


The five will join 65 other
IGFA hall-of-famers including
Ernest Hemingway, Zane Grey,
Curt Gowdy and Ted Williams -
all of whom made all or some of
their considerable reputations in
Keys waters.

great," she said. "They're nice

And so far, the young
Conchs have found Hulme's
presence encouraging.
"She's going to be amazing,"

'Singing Bee' new guilty pleasure


And Llama song
worth checking
out for all ages
s summer offerings for
watchable television are
typically thin, we find
ourselves fairly easy to please
above and beyond reruns of
"CSI Miami" or the infinitum of
"Law & Order," either of which,
I'm pretty sure, are showing on
at least one station 24/7.
Well, "above and beyond"
finds my family tuning into "The
Singing Bee" on NBC Tuesdays.
The New York Times
reviewed the show, saying it
"comes with all the can-do spirit,
patriotic nostalgia and pretty
showgirls of a timeless network
spectacle. It would have comple-
mented highballs in the
Eisenhower era, martinis during
the Ford administration and
chardonnay around the time Bill
Clinton was first elected. It is
equal parts 'Lawrence Welk
Show,' 'Solid Gold' and
'Arsenio Hall Show.' In other
words, ugh. In other words, awe-
some."


This
might
explain the
show's
multi-gen-
rational
appeal. Not
only does it
have con-
testants
singing (or
trying to
sing) songs
Jessica from 1960
Machetta to present,
but both of
my daughters are going through
a phase of musical awareness
and identity.
Claire, 9, insists on listening
to WEOW 92.7-FM in the car,
yet still appreciates a good round
of Nancy Sinatra on the turntable
while Macy, 4, parrots almost
every song (adding her own cho-
reography) featured in television
commercials. (Think chocolate
chip cookies riding in a convert-
ible with "Don't You Want Me
Baby" by the Human League as
the soundtrack.)
For me, I think it's the strik-
ing resemblance the Honey Bees
bear to the Solid Gold Dancers


and the diversity of folks willing
to sing loudly with gusto for
cash that makes the show enjoy-
able. Not to mention trying to
outdo the contestants.
"Mom, you're good. You
should go on this show and win
a bunch of money" is probably
the greatest compliment I've
heard from my kids in a long
time.
Knowing the opening lyrics
to "Physical" by Olivia Newton
John probably isn't going to earn
me the cool mom title for much'
longer.
If this show and others on tel-
evision right now turn your
stomach and you opt to keep


cool sitting in front of the other
lighted screen (See Judi
Bradford's ArtBeat), be sure to
check out the "Llama Song."
This little Internet ditty also has
multi-generational appeal and is
absurd enough to make you feel
a little saner for the day.
You can't watch a video to
"here's a llama, there's a llama,
and another little llama, fuzzy
llama, funny llama, llama llama,
duck" without laughing out loud,
I don't care how old you are.

Keys Arts & Entertainment


Saturday, August 11,2007 3


Hanging out in A/C is nice in August


Avoiding heat
good reason to
surf the Web
M arky Pierson and
Christa and Monika
of Key West
Burlesque styled a "non-clas-
sical" figure drawing session
for artists in the Keys last
week.
The session involved a set,
music and costumed models to
liven the summer blahs at
least for the figure artists.
Another session is planned
for later in the summer. Expect
to see some new subject mat-
ter in local artists' repertoires.

Doldrum beaters
As we approach what some
call the dog days of summer,
the Internet offers some relief
in the form of feline costum-
ing. In the usual round of
things that get forwarded and
re-forwarded in e-mail loops,
several people sent me photos
of "painted cats" pets that
have been airbrushed in fan-
tastic designs.
The message with the pho-
tos said the paint jobs could
run to $15,000 and had to be
repeated several times a year.
As I do with all these for-
warded items, I referred to
www.snopes.com for
verification.
Snopes, the premier
Internet debunker, classifies
this myth as false, attributing
the photos to Burton Silver
and Heather Busch's 1994
coffee table book "Why Cats


AB43514269 C





Op,:n 7 .ahys a cel
305.664.9008
,.,,! i e L ,, .;a I~ '


Paint: A
Theory of
Feline
Aesthetics"
and its
Sequel,
"Why
SPaint
Cats: The
Ethics of
Feline
Aesthetics."
In the
Judi Bradford explana-
tion, they
quote a San Francisco
Chronicle reviewer Jon
Carroll, "'Why Cats Paint' is a
sort of preemptive strike of a
title. It bypasses the crucial
issue (Do cats paint?) and.
moves right to developing a
theoretical construct about a
phenomenon that has not yet
gone through the formality of
actually existing."


The book presents invented
bios of the various feline
"artists" featured in the book.
The second book presents cats
transformed by painting.
The authors previously cre-
ated a book on the "almost-real
art of Japanese erotic paper
sculpture"- "Kokigami."
This demonstrates one of
the basic tenets of advertising
and marketing: Saying it
makes it so.

Other stuff
The Internet is especially
appealing when it's hot out-
side. So here's something you
can do in the air-conditioning.
Go to www.youtube.com,
that marvel of common
denominator communications,
for a brief history of women in
art.

gy of female portraits through
500 years of western art histo-
ry, set to Bach's "Sarabande"
from "Suite for Solo Cello No.

Yoyo Ma.
The director is eggman913
(his YouTube ID). A list of the
paintings and artists can be
found at www.maysstuff

is also a link to the www.my
space.com site of the video-
grapher, where we find he is a
40-year-old Capricorn male
from St. Louis, Mo:
There are a couple of ver-
sions of the video circulating
on YouTube, all I noted were


attributed to eggman913. An
inferior attempt is "Women in
Art Elektro" don't waste
your time.
If you search for women in
art, you will also run across
the "NYC Tattoo Show,"
which was interesting, too.
Checking out the MySpace
site of the videographer led me
to other Key West MySpace
links. I found a video from the
cockpit of a small prop plane
landing at Key West airport, a
clip of milling fish and sharks
at a dock in the Keys, various
scenic shots and some dumb
and dumber antics.

C continued from "Gonzo
guide to the BVIs":
After hitting Bomba's
magic mushroom shack it
seemed I really was in
Wonderland.
Turbo lead the gonzo team
up a hill where a perfect para-
dise appeared a mile-long
stretch of sugary white sand
with enormous coconut palms
that swayed like hula girls at a
luau. Having spotted the
Emerald City, I ran like
Dorothy the rest of the way.
Fabulously secluded, the
beach was part of the Long Bay
Resort. A shoeless middle-aged
Couple tying the knot did not
seem too concerned that a black
man wearing an aviator hat and
goggles, a disheveled white
woman, a crazy man with only
four strings on a beat-up guitar
and a mumbling man with a
camera was converging on their
special moment. The wedding
scene from the movie "Kill
Bill" flashed through my mind.
In fact, they invited us to
bear witness to their union. A
tear came to Turbo's eye when
the bride asked him to give her
away. Cujo played a reggae ver-

sion of
Jimmy
Buffet's
"We Are
The
People
Our
'V I Parents
Warned Us
About,"
while
Elbows
snapped
Sammie Mays their offi-
cial wed-
ding portrait. It was a memo-
rable occasion with no pink-
chiffon.
While Cujo and Turbo stayed
and drank the newlyweds'
champagne, Elbows and I
slipped off and caught the
resort's Land Rover to the front
desk and checked into paradise.
Our balcony overlooked the
pool, the islands of Jost Van
Dyke and Sandy Spit where the
Corona commercials were
filmed and Kenny Chesney's
"Some Beach" was inspired. It's
no secret that when down
island, Chesney spends his time
in the BVIs on his boat, so I
kept a seaman's eye out for the
country crooner using Elbows
200mm lens as a spyglass.
The tag on my one-piece
cheetah swimsuit guaranteed the
illusion of a slimmer, sexier me,
so I squeezed my ba-donkey-
donk into it and made a dash for
the pool. Well, the swim-up bar
to be precise, contemplating the
resort's motto, "No schedules
and no rules," just as my
cheeseburger in paradise
arrived.
When night fell over Tortola
and only stars and a few tiki
torches to guide my way, I
strolled down the beach to an
18th Century sugar mill (the


oldest restaurant in the British
Virgin Islands) named '1748'
for its age. I ordered a mojito in
honor of the cane farmers and a
bowl of ginger, coriander and
carrot soup.
I wondered, if Long Bay
Resort was out there, what else
must there be? In the lobby was
an ancient chart. I closed my
eyes and like choosing a tarot
card to reflect upon for the day,
my finger landed on Virgin
Gorda the island furthest
south in the chain. Legend has
it Columbus named the island
because it resembled a fat preg-
nant virgin lying on her back.
Say what? Sounds to me like
ole Christopher may have been
dippin' into the Pusser's Rum.
The next morning, after my
watermelon and beach walk, the
Biras Creek Resort sent their
water limo to transport the
gonzo team to Virgin Gorda.
Conspicuous by his absence,
Elbows mumbled, "But what
about Cujo?" I didn't even have
to think twice about it. That
fool's back at Bomba's Shack,
I said.

Cultural hub emerges


And catch new
theater project
'One Night Stand'
The Studios of Key West,
since establishing itself
in June 2006 as a non-
profit cultural organization, is
ever expanding.
Following the redevelop-
ment of the Historic Armory
building, the opening of six
new subsidized artist studios
early this month, the launch of
a free humanities lecture
series, and the completion of
the first workshop season, the
organization is now planning-
an ambitious slate of new proj-
ects, partnerships and program-
ming.
The public is invited to get
a closer look at upcoming cul-
tural activities during the next
Walk on White gallery crawl
from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday.
Featured at the armory are
works by Barbara Vogel and
Jim Racchi in the Sculpture
Garden, food from Waterfront
Market, complimentary wine
and live music by Din Allen.


Most of the 12 studios will
also be open to the public.
"Our development is about
creative people and energy,"
board member John Martini
and prominent Key West sculp-
tor said. "We have defined a
mission of support for local.
artists and cultural develop-
ment, installed a great profes-
sional team, and assembled a
hard-working board of commu-
nity leaders."
The additional six studio
spaces brings to the scene
painters A.D. Tinkham, Letty
Nowak, Marc Caren, and
Rebecca Bennett; mixed-media
artist and photographer
Natasha Cole; writer Mark
Hedden; and graphic designer
Peter Downie.
"The coming season prom-
ises to bring all sorts of oppor-
tunities for the local communi-
ty, including an expanded free
lecture series, over 40 artist-led
workshops, free weekend arts
activities for Key Wesf chil-
dren and the introduction of
Key West's first affordable art
vending machine," Executive


Director Eric Holowacz, who
took the helm in May, said.
The Studios of Key West and
partners Sculpture Key West
and the Florida Keys Arts
Council will begin holding
after-work networking sessions
from 4 to 6 p.m. on Aug. 23.
Tonight at 7 p.m. is the final

And auditions
for season are
coming up soon
T night, three local actors
will wrap up a two-week
run of "Vanities" at
Marathon Community Theatre.
The theater's annual summer
reading series is less formal than
on-stage productions taking
place during the winter season,
but no less professional. Rather
than viewing a play in a dark-
ened theater with full sound
effects and set design, audiences
are treated to costumed actors in
the theater's gallery, where they
can enjoy refreshments.
Director Ginger Michael and
Producer Jackie O'Neil have
reprised Jack Heifner's
"Vanities," which ran for five
years in New York and became
one of the longest running plays
in Off-Broadway history.
"Vanities" is a bittersweet
laugh-out-loud comedy about
the growth of a friendship
among three small town women
coming of age in the '60s and
'70s. Critics have described the
play as "astute, a snapshot-sharp
chronicle look at their lives with
witty dialogue."
Reflecting the title, the play
begins "behind the scenes" as
the actresses are at their vanity

scene. The play then reveals
three friends in 1963: Joanne.
(played by Cheri Edwards),
Kathy (Heidi Ferrell), and Mary
(Cathy Supp) as vivacious
cheerleaders.
The play shifts to five years
later, where the girls are in their
college's sorority house and
they nervously confront their
futures.
In 1974, they reunite briefly
in New York to see how their
lives have diverged and their
friendship has become strained
and ambiguous. Their honest

The doldrums of summer
are upon us.
Most locals' vacations are
over, we're hip-deep in the
slow season, and each day is
90 degrees with south to
southeast winds around 5 to
10 knots. If those aren't some
great reasons to go fishing, I
don't know what are.
It's all about choices,
choices and more choices.


It's a magical time. The
only problem may be that if
you break down on the water,
there may not be another soul
in sight who can help not
exactly a bad problem to
have, in my opinion.
In this issue of Fishing the
Florida Keys, we do a lot of
long-distance traveling.

Follow the law


or pay the price

Fisheries violations could
cost you a lot more than cash


So now what?
The Florida Keys Safe
Diving Initiative's Lobster
Diving Rodeo and Safety Expo
in July has come and gone, as
has the two-day lobster mini-
season.
No doubt, many people
received citations for not having
a dive flag; reckless or careless
operation of their boat; posses-
sion of undersize, wrung or out-
of-season lobster; and various
other violations.
Every year, me and officers
that work with me ask ourselves
the same question. Why? Don't
even try to answer.
I may work for the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission but I
am not an en -
ronmental
fanatic or
paranoid .'
safety .
freak. I
believe in
common-
sense
rules and
basic 1
ethics
behind / f
conserva-
tion,
preserva-
tion of the I
environ-
ment and the
wildlife that .
exists within the
environment.
I also believe in applying the
basic rules to boating for, if not
my safety, the safety of others.
An example is my belief is that
bag and size limits on fisheries
help increase the number and
size of the fish we all enjoy
catching.
When on patrol in the Keys
I, like most other FWC officers,
work both recreational and com-
mercial fishing. I have read
many articles about how com-
mercial fishing is depleting the
fisheries and by 2025, there may
be no chance of recovery for the
world's oceans. If the science is
correct then we are in trouble.
But what if the science is


wrong?
Like most
people, I
believe some
of what I
read and not
all. If science
is not based
on fact or the
variables are
not all fac-
tored into the


equation, the science may have
some flaws.
What if people don't care
either way? I'm afraid the latter
is the case too often.
Recreational fishing in the
Keys is an individual sport but
there is no question about it -
recreational fishing is
-. hic business.
i There are
many people
taking a
S great deal of
fish in a
very organ-
ized and
efficient
I manner. All
S i that's need-
S d to catch
fish and get
you to the
S S fish is sold
"-T"' F "right here in
the Keys.
And the
0 waterss of the
IKe provide some
ot the best, if not the
best, fishing in the world.
As FWC officers, most of us
agree we are writing a signifi-
cantly greater number of
resource-violation citations than
we have in the past. That's
because there are more people
taking illegal quantities and
undersize fish.
And so I say, why? Many
people just say, "I didn't know."
Why? Many people say, "I
guess you caught me."
Why? Some say nothing and
take the citation as part of doing
business.
Some people even track us
down and ask us what the fines
are so they can budget for trav-
el, eating out, paying for a hotel


and betting caught taking over-
the-limit or undersize fish.
I have had people say to me,
"Oh, if that's all, I'll have to pay
it. It may still be worth it," and
with the wink of an eye they
drive away smiling.
So for those people who
come here with the intent to
steal what is not legally theirs,
there is more.
As one of my captains once
told me, "I may have taught you


everything you know but I
haven't taught you everything I
know."
Make a note that if you are
caught taking undersize, out-of-
season or over-the-bag limit
fish, this is how you may be
charged:
Possession of one to five
fish is $295, six to 12 is $400
and 13 to 100 will cost $715.
That's only for one charge.
If you have two violations,


let's say undersize and out-of-
season fish, and, let's say, you
have 10 fish, you now pay $400
per charge for a total of $800.
Additionally because fish-
eries violations are criminal vio-
lations, materials used in the
commission of the crime -
masks, snorkels, tanks, buoyan-
cy compensators, fins, rods,
reels, spear guns, coolers, GPS

Fishing the Florida Keys


Oh!


so close...

Bad-luck tide turns,
and victory nearly is ours

Editor's note: Upper Keys guides Capt. Troy Mell and Capt.
Jason Swensson are competing in the ongoing FLW Redfish Series.
They've been chronicling their season for Fishing the Florida Keys.

By TROY MELL and JASON SWENSSON
FFK Contributors


So here we are at the last
qualifying tournament of the
season, in a place known as the
land of a thousand casts or, for
the non-fishing types,
Fernandina Beach.
This endearing nickname
explains the fishing well. The
area is primarily creeks and
ponds winding through fields of
spartina grass littered with oys-
ter bars and stretches all the
way from the Georgia state line
down to the St. Johns River
near downtown Jacksonville.
Once you manage to wind your

way through this minefield,
you're met with mostly tea-col-
ored water.
The primary method of
attack is blind-casting, although
you occasionally get lucky and
get to sight-fish at low tide.
Speaking of tides, have we
ever mentioned there can be as
much as a 5-foot tide swing?
These conditions may make
Jacksonville one of the hardest
areas to find good numbers of
redfish, so cross your fingers,
stretch out your back and arms
and get ready to cast, and cast,

and cast again.
As usual, we brought two
boats and soon split up to begin
our pre-fishing. After a few
days of looking around, things
were not looking good at all.
Our combined catch total after


our pre-fishing days were four
to five redfish and more baby
trout than we could stand. All
the redfish caught were singles,
found in different areas with no
real discernable pattern that

Our last day of pre-fishing,
Jason managed to find one
small school of fish that was
holding on two small oyster
bars. Although not promising, ii
looked like our best shot for the
tournament.
The first morning of the
tournament, we made our way
to these two small oyster bars
that took more than an hour to
traverse from the boat launch,
only to find the tide was too
high. So we agreed to try to
expand on that area and find
more fish until the tide was
right to fish the oyster bars.
During this higher water, we
worked some of the flooded
grass ponds throwing Super
Spook Jrs. We were rewarded
very early with a 6-pound red-
fish by 8:30 a.m. This was the
largest fish we saw or caught
during pre-fishing and wow,
were we ecstatic. This gave us
renewed hope and some
strength back in our tired cast-
ing arms.
Hopeful, we continued on,
working points and flooded
grass areas and soon missed a
bite from a fish that just did nol
want to commit.

to fall, we made our way to the

previously mentioned small
oyster bars and staked off just
within casting range; the fun
was just about to start.

First hookups
We began working the same
Super Spook Jrs. in this small
area for more than four hours.
Cast, retrieve, cast, retrieve,
cast we thought we were
going to lose our minds.
Through the monotony, there
were four bites with two
hookups.
One of the hookups was
another top slot fish. As we
held our breath, the fish came
reluctantly to the boat, but one
look at the boat and he took off,
immediately spitting the hook.
This was one good fish lost at
the boat that we would not for-
get.
Regardless, we had almost
10 pounds of redfish in the live
well, and after a couple of high-
fives (we had two fish) we
started our way back to make it
to weigh-in on time.
After a short night reviewing
everything that happened dur-
ing the day, we were back at it
the next morning sitting in 24th
place. Heading right back to the
same area, could the game plan
be successful again?
We stuck with the same tac-
tics as the day before and sure
enough, it went almost like
clockwork. We had a good bite
back in the flooded grass first
thing in the morning. One fish
absolutely blasted up on the
top-water plug, but it was
another fish that just did not
want to cooperate and missed
the hook.
While we were patiently
working in the ponds, waiting
for the tide to drop, we noticed
several boats in the area. We
agreed not to risk anyone get-
ting to those oyster bars before
us, so we staked off at the spot
a lot earlier, which meant
throwing top-water plugs for
that much longer.

Up the standings
Through the repetitiveness,
we were able to come to a
rough conclusion: for every 180
casts, we got one redfish bite.
Although not our idea of excite-
ment, at least we were catching
some fish. Still, this tournament
could not be over soon enough.
Right at the end of the sec-
ond day, we connect with two
good bites our Boga Grip meas-
ured at almost 13 pounds for
the combined two fish. It's off
to the scales-to-see how-we


Now it all boils down to our captians
they have more than 4.5 pounds? T
made out.
At the scales there was a bit
of controversy.
The announcer called our
weight at 12 pounds, 12 ounces,
but our computer slip stated
only 12 pounds, 2 ounces. We
caught the mistake just before
dumping our fish into the
release tank.
Requesting a re-weigh, we
ended with almost a pound dif-
ference in weight in our favor
- 12 pounds, 13 ounces.
Our total weight for the two
days of fishing: 22 pounds 10
ounces. Looking at the leader
board and then at each other,
we realized that we had just
squeaked into fifth place by one
ounce.
Normally this would be a
great thing; we qualified to fish
on the third day and compete
for $37,500. Then again....
Putting a huge damper on
the situation was Barry, an
approaching tropical storm, the
first of the season for Florida
and due to arrive late the next
morning. To add insult to
injury, the tides were going to
be the complete opposite of the
ones we fished the last two
days. Could we have any worse
luck? .- - -. .. .

s and the first-place team. Do

HTmh


We woke up the next morn-
ing to heavy rain and moderate
winds. It was real tough to get
motivated to go fishing in these
conditions but we had to remain
positive. There were camera
opportunities we could not pass
up and wanted to try to make
the best out of a crappy situa-
tion.
First thing at the boat
launch, we met our camera
man, got microphones put on us
and loaded the boat while in the
relentless rain. After a short
interview, we started to make
our way back to the same area
we fished the previous two
days, even though the tides
were not in our favor. We had
no other choice considering
what we found during our pre-
fishing and the new approach-


ing weather conditions.
The fishing we did that day
went against everything we
have ever done or thought. We
drove the boat into the ponds
with the big motor and then
staked off and fished. We
repeated this for most of the
morning and even had a redfish
come up on our top-water plug
but he just missed it.

Let it blow
As the morning went on, the
weather kept deteriorating. By
11 a.m. we were fishing in 35
mph sustained winds with gusts
up over 50. And did we men-
tion the rain? That was even
harder.

Who do you think

The more captains and die-

I can tell the ferocity of fishing
fever they have by one simple
telltale sign the contrast in
tan lines.
For most of the captains, the
tan contrast is most evident in
what we call raccoon eyes. You
know the people I'm talking
about, the captain over whom
you do a double take as he or

all you first see are the huge
white eyes on a dark tanned

saying, Whoa!

Anywhere

world, most
of these peo-
ple would be
freaks of
nature. These
fishermen
would proba-


bly be rushed
to the hospital for fear they
might have some sort of conta-
gious skin disease.
But these are the Keys, and
here, the raccoon eyes are like a
badge of honor. The more con-
trast between sun-protected and
unprotected skin, the more like-
ly you will be a better captain.
Now, this isn't meant to pun-

No, it is meant to pretty
much showcase more of the tan-
laden skin belonging to captains
and fishermen across the Keys.
I first realized the raccoon-
eyes thing when I hosted the
awards banquet at the Leon
Shell Sailfish Tournament in
Key Colony Beach.
As I was broadcasting the
names of the winners, Capt.
Marty Lewis from the Main
Attraction walked into Sparky's
Landing with about 200 people
already jammed-packed into it.
My eyes caught his raccoon
eyes and I stopped cold.
They were the best raccoon
eyes I have ever seen on a cap-
tain. I missed my chance at
catching a picture of Marty, but
I did happen to find a few oth-
ers.
Captains are notoriously
competitive. So here, we put
their raccoon eyes on the line.

All that success has been
very good for Lamp. It gets
him notoriety and allows him
to live off the water, which he

sour grapes, or maybe just a
disdain for Lamp's big, brash

Key West. That's a lot different
than the goal of most guides,
which is to catch the biggest
fish, the most fish or the most-
difficult-to-catch fish.
Lamp's charters are more
likely to snorkel in the Gulf for
a while, then maybe do some
snapper fishing and then look


for wild dolphins. That's fine
with him.
"People from Sheboygan, or
wherever, don't get to see this
every day," Lamp said as he
drove his big, new pickup
truck up U.S. 1 recently while
towing a big, new boat. "I get
to show them this environ-
ment, tell a few bad jokes, and
they see it a brand new way,
like a bunch of kids."
"I'm helping people live the
dream," he said. "I ask,
'What's gonna make you
happy?' And we do it. It's like
a Disney World kind of experi-
ence for them."
Once in a while he'll take
out serious anglers, and that's
OK, too. But meat fishing is
not his thing.
He figures a big part of his
life now is a kind of penance
for the mounds of fish he
killed for years growing up on
the Gulf.
"It's like a big apology for
all the commercial fishing I
did as a teen," he said. That's
why he shuns reef and offshore
fishing, and always chooses
the flats whenever it's an
option.

Fishing the Florida Keys


Snag some


summer snapper

Simple rigs are often
the the most productive rigs


We all know there are snap-
per of all types to be found
yearlong in Keys waters. But
summer brings something a lit-
tle different to the snapper plate.
Summer is when the man-
grove snapper gather on the
outer reef edge to spawn. This
spawning behavior ushers in
some of the fastest-paced fish-
ing for these delicacies available
all year.

mushy consistency of their
cousin, the yellowtail snapper.
Mangrove snapper can be found
congregating in schools ranging
in size from a few dozen to sev-
eral hundred. They can be found
from the shallowest patch reef

Spawning snapper are often
hungry and aggressive enough
to come right to the back of a
boat following the scent of the
chum.
This is probably the fastest
way to identify whether the reef
you have chosen has an aggre-
gation of snapper.
If the snapper don't appear
within about 30 minutes, they
are most likely not there. Don't
be fooled if the only fish to
show up at your boat's transom
are smaller fish. The larger fish

are clever and will hold back in
the chum or just stay on the bot-
tom and patiently wait for their
turn to feed.
To find the larger snapper at
your transom, you will have to
wait until the evening
-- or night, when

their inhibitions decrease.
The feeding behavior of the
larger snapper is quite interest-
ing. If you are fortunate enough
to have a day where the water is
clear enough and the fish are
coming close enough to the
boat, you can often observe the
behavior yourself. Use a glass-
bottom bucket and you can see
the bottom quite well on many
summer days.
The larger snapper will often
circle or just observe your bait
such as a ballyhoo chunk or a
live small pinfish. When the
smaller fish start to attack or
just nibble the bait, only then
will the larger fish rush in to
claim the morsel for himself.
Because of this behavior, it is
important to not try to set the
hook when you feel nibbles.
You should wait for the nibbles
to stop and for the steady pull of
the larger fish moving his prize
away from the fray before you
set it. When you do decide to set
the hook, you must act quickly
to move the fish away from the
reef, as they are the true masters
of finding cover and staying put.
One common mistake made
by newer anglers is over-rig-
ging. In this case, the simplest
rig is often the most effective.
The knocker rig consists of
your main line running through
the lightest egg sinker that will
allow you to reach bottom and
terminates with a hook. For
sinker and hook size a three-
quarter-ounce weight and 4/0
9174 Mustad hook are a good
place to start.
This rig works well because
as far as the fish is concerned,
the sinker is just another rock on
the bottom next to the bait. The
sinker doesn't move as the fish
takes the bait and moves away.
The line just slides freely


through the sinker until the line
comes tight, hopefully on hook
set. No swivels or separate
leader are needed.
If you insist on using fluoro-
carbon for the clear-water days,
you can simply splice a few
yards onto your line directly.
Your splice
P should be far
i '^ enough from
the terminal
,. end of your rig
., ;' to allow the
_... ~ sinker to remain
-.... sliding free on
the line so you
S can set the
hook before
the fish can
feel the weigh
of the sinker.
The quickest way to splice
the lines together is to use a
Uni-to-Uni splice. This knot is
also necessary if your main line
is Power Pro or another super
braid. Remember to use at least
eight turns on the super-braid
side of the splice, while only
three are required on the fluoro-
carbon side.
As mentioned earlier, two of
the best baits for snapper are
small pinfish or cut, fresh
ballyhoo.
When fishing the reef, you
should hook your pinfish
through the shoulder just for-
ward of the dorsal spines. This
will allow your bait some move.
ment and if the snapper feels the
hook in that position, it would
naturally mistake it for a dorsal
spine. Make sure to hook your
bait deep enough to secure it to
the hook but shallow enough to
allow plenty of hook to pene-
trate the snappers mouth on
hook set. If only larger pinfish
are available, you can use them
as cut bait.
As for the ballyhoo, you
should use larger pieces than yot
might for species such as yellow
tail or lane snapper. Usually you
will get only two pieces from an
average-size ballyhoo.
Remove the head and tail as
close to the body as possible,
then split the remainder in half.
For the forward half of the bait,
place the hook through from side
to side just over the pectoral fins
For the tail half of the bait, place
the hook through the tail end,
centering it through the spine.
Again, it is important to leave
enough of the hook exposed to
allow for a sure hook set.
Small grunts and snapper
will pick on the pieces of cut

I rolled over to look at the
clock, 1:30 a.m. I was tired but
couldn't sleep. Slightly pulling the
blinds down from the window, I
could see the palm-tree limbs
were not moving; it was flat calm.
I remember when I was
younger not being able to sleep
the night before Christmas and
waking up before everyone in
anticipation of opening gifts.
Well, this morning was my
Christmas; in fact, every time I go
to the Dry Tortugas, I get that
same Christmas-like feeling -
the feeling of anticipation, excite-
ment and adventure, the chance to
leave the world behind and chal-
lenge your inner being, cleansing
the soul of the pollutants modem-
day society adds to it.
I was going to Fort Jefferson, a
fisherman's paradise, a refugees'
landing site, a place of history
with many untold stories buried in
the depths of its solid brick walls.
Eighteen years ago I first
walked the pristine beaches on
Loggerhead and Garden keys, a
walk that would turn into a pas-
sion. To this day the memories of
that first trip to the Dry Tortugas
are etched in my mind and rejuve-
nated every time I pull back on
the throttles and idle into Garden
Key Harbor, always taking a
moment to admire in amazement
the engineering and logistical
marvel the fort on Garden Key is.
For many in the Keys, fishing
is a way of life. Similarly, my
family lifestyle revolves around
fishing. There is hardly a day that
goes by when some aspect of fish-
ing or boating is not discussed.
In recent years, I have had the
opportunity to spend more time
fishing with one of my most influ-
ential fishing mentors, my grand-
father. Fishing all his life as a
third-generation Conch, my
grandfather first visited the
Tortugas in 1972. It was a differ-

ent era in time, and he tells count-
less stories of going only a mile or
two from Loggerhead and looking
for black and white bottom, where
they would make the only drop of
the day catching all the fish they
wanted.
While the days of old are gone,
the Tortugas still offer world-class
fishing and diving for those will-
ing to put the time and effort into
locating and learning the intricate
tactics required to produce quality
fish.
Recently I was fortunate to
carry on a tradition my grandfa-
ther and father started with me
many years ago.
Bringing together a group of
close friends to fish and camp has
become an annual event.
Originally planned for 10 of my
close friends on two boats, I real-
ized none of what I have been
able to experience through fishing
would be possible without my
grandfather; subsequently I added
my grandfather to the list of close
friends, which in reality he is one
of my best friends, and if fishing
does one thing best: it creates
memories etched into the sands of
time.

Plenty of supplies
Preparation is essential on
these types of trips, more than for
a normal day of fishing. Anglers
and campers must be cognizant
that everything they need for a
successful trip will have to come
with them from the mainland.
All too often I see pictures of
fish caught on overnight trips to
the Tortugas that have lost their
pigment due to being poorly iced.
So ice is a commodity of which
you cannot have enough in the
Tortugas.
Typically on a three-day trip I
take 500 pounds of crushed ice
and 12 to 15 25-pound blocks of
ice. Additionally, I take two cases
of chum and an assortment of bal-
lyhoo, squid and herring for cut
bait. In addition I always make

I honing in on the hot bait that
ticular trip is essential.
Typically I use 20-to 30-pound

Ltton, these rigs, which Capt.

ie again, will work just fine.
If targeting only muttons, fluo-
:arbon is beneficial and as Capt.
ire Wiggins says, "If it helps
a catch one more fish, then the
orocarbon has done its job."
On a recent trip to the
rtugas, fish were abundant and
'ling to bite. In five hours we
ded more than 20 legal
)upers, assorted snappers and
low jacks.
So it was time for the other
f of what the Tortugas are
)ut, camping and enjoying
:ure at its finest.
As the sun crested over the
st edge of Loggerhead into
inity, the 11 of us sat around
! table enjoying cold beers and
sh fish, caught only a few
ars ago. After a few more hours
endless laughs and cocktails,


we anchored up for the night and
slipped into the natural bliss of
Garden Key Harbor.

Sunrise comes
Awakening to the screaming of
the thousands of birds that nest on
the island to the east of Garden
Key, I started shaking my crew to
set off for another day; probably a
bit hung over, they reluctantly
stirred as I idled the boat to the
dock to pick up my grandfather,
who had egg sandwiches hot and
ready.
Easing the throttles forward,
the boat crested on plane and we
couldn't help but notice the
orange ball rising from the ocean
over our backs behind the fort, a
promising sign of events to come.
Success on the water for me is
judged not by how much or what
I catch, but what new I learn with
each day on the water, and how I
can apply those tactics to my next
trip.
With the fort to our backs and
now outside the park boundaries, I
slowed the boat in what looked to
be good live bottom and looked
for subtle rises in the bottom, the
obvious 15- to 20-foot rises
everyone can find; any 5-foot or
so rise was what I was looking
for.
After finding what looked
promising, we dropped anchor
and within five minutes had three
groupers going 11, 12 and 14
pounds; not a bad start. The day
was a steady pick of quality red
and scamp grouper.
With plenty of fish in the box,
it is important to take time and
explore areas you've never been.
It takes a few months for a spot to
rejuvenate after fishing it hard,
therefore finding new bottom is
key to having success.

Flats 101:


Beat the heat

And don't forget the stealth aspect

By CAPT. JACK TEAGUE
FFK Contributor


Sight-fishing on Keys flats is
always an angling challenge,
and the heat of late summer
often raises the level of that
challenge a few degrees.
What does heat have to do
with it? Flats guides and veteran
flats anglers already know the
answer, but for those who aren't
students of the skinny water, the
answer is: everything.
Shallow water is more rapid-
ly influenced than deeper water
by atmospheric temperature.
The fish we hope to find in the
flats have water-temperature
comfort zones that help predict
their presence on a flat.
Bonefish, for example, seem


to prefer water temperature in
the low 70-degree to low 80-
degree range. Permit seem to
tolerate a little warmer water
better than the bones. But by the
time August and September roll
around, it's not uncommon for
water temperatures on the flats
to be well into the mid-90s
range at mid-day. So how do
you go flats fishing in water
that's not far from boiling?
There are a few strategies
that can prove successful for
finding flats species when the
water is hot.
The best chance for summer
water temperature to moderate a
few degrees is before the sun

angle gets high or later in the
afternoon. Moving water is
always important to stimulate
the appetite of fish and, in the
case of the flats this time of
year, it can exchange cooler
water from deeper areas for that
which has been superheated
during the peak of the day.
So seeking junctures of
appropriate tide phase with
morning or later-afternoon time
intervals can help overcome the
water-temperature obstacle.
The downside to fishing in
the early mornings or later after-


noons is the light angle neces-
sary to spot the fish beneath the
water surface is not optimal.
Admittedly, it's kind of hard to
sight-fish when you can't see
your quarry. In the best of all
worlds, the tide and time are in
concert and the fish will wake
or tail, betraying their location
and presenting a casting target
in these lower-light circum-
stances.
If that doesn't happen, does it
mean they didn't show up or
they've disappeared altogether?
It is not uncommon for flats

species to prefer the deeper
edges of flats and channels
where temperatures are the mosi
comfortable they can be and,
thus, you may not get to see
your quarry. Though it may be a
disappointment for the technical
flats purist, the best hope of suc-
cess may dictate chumming to
bring the fish to you.
Summer bait shrimp in the
Keys, when they're to be had at
all, are typically very small. But
they smell the same as larger
specimens and, with a small-
enough hook, stay alive.
Classically, they are broken
into small pieces at the sections
of their torsos and scattered
around a boat that has been
staked off or anchored.
Alternatively, the pieces can be
contained in a chum basket or
pot tethered to the boat and cast
out to lie on the bottom in a
strategic location to attract the
fish.
In either circumstance, you
can anticipate the chum will
attract non-target species such
as bonnethead sharks, and

Fishing the Florida Keys


August September 2007


there's nothing to be done about
that except enjoy them pulling
on your line. It is possible to
attract permit by chumming but
you'll want to use crushed-up
crabs. And definitely use a
chum pot or basket, as the crab
parts will disappear rapidly in
flowing current, thus not being
present long enough to be effec-
tive.
Not only is summer heat
tough on the beasties, it can also
brutalize the angler as well.
Cotton T-shirts may be the
hottest garment God ever placed
on the face of this earth and
anglers routinely choose to wear
them. They're OK in more mod-
erate temperatures, but flats
angling this time of year is a great
deal more comfortable in techni-
cal fishing clothing made from
breathable synthetic fabric. Many
of those fabrics are impregnated
with an ultraviolet light chemical
barrier that provides extra protec-
tion from sunburn.
In the past, the cost of this
clothing was prohibitive for
many casual anglers but nowa-
days can be purchased for not
much more than the cost of a T-
shirt with the picture of your
favorite fish emblazoned across
the back. Whatever that price
difference is, it's a great deal
cheaper than melanoma or heat
stroke.
Though you may be fishing
in lower light conditions this
time of year, polarized sunglass-
es are still a must. Amber or
similar-tint lenses seem to cut
through blue light the best,
which means eliminating glare
on the water's surface. If the
opportunity for classic sight-
fishing presents itself, you don't
want to handicap yourself by
not being able to see through
the water.
Many an opportunity at the
fish of a lifetime has been lost
because the angler lacked
appropriate eyewear and was
unable to spot his quarry.
Often during summer in the
Keys, the wind is relatively still
and many times days are actual-
ly flat calm. Fish moving
around on the flats, especially
permit, are extremely wary and
sensitive to motion. If the
opportunity for technical flats
fishing does present itself, quiet
stealth becomes even more
essential to success than on days
with a bit more wind.
What that means to the
angler is that casts to these crit-
ters will likely have to be fur-
ther, softer and more accurate.
Any angler interested in sum-


mer flats fishing in the Keys
will do themselves an enormous
favor by practicing their casting
skills at distances of perhaps 40
feet before they leave home.
On calm days, even move-
ment above the water's surface
such as the over-the-shoulder
sweep of a casting motion can be
enough to scatter those permit. If
the angler can sustain accuracy, a
lower casting angle almost
side-arm can offer the advan-
tages of being less detectible by
the fish and delivering the bait
without a loud splash.
There's no doubt successful
flats fishing in the Keys in the
hottest part of the summer can
be difficult and it may not look
like the TV shows. But it's not
impossible if you prepare before
you go, pick your times, stay
hydrated drink lots of water
- and be prepared to accept
some limitations.

Fishing the Florida Keys


SPONGE TRADE: This old photo shows
two fishermen in a dinghy harvesting
sponges in Key West. Based on the
source document date, it is estimated
to be from 1918 to 1920. From the 1850s
through the late 1890s, commercial
harvesting of sea sponges, especially
the sheeps' wool sponge, was a major
(and profitable) economic activity in
Key West. The fishers used a
three-prong hook attached to a long
wooden pole to pry the sponges from
the sea floor. Because this was before
the days of widespread diving tech-
niques, a bucket with a glass bottom
was used to look below the surface for
sponges. At the peak of the fishery,
hundreds of sailing sloops and
schooners equipped with several
dinghies such as this ranged the
waters of the Keys and northward
along the west coast of Florida in
search of sponges. The advent of
diving gear during the early 1900s and
the impact of sponge blight that struck
in 1939 reduced the prominence of the
fishery, although it has continued
into the present.

the Key West Maritime Historical Society, in

Library. Additional details and membership

Fishing the Florida Keys


August September 2007 19


Sfly fishing tip


After a fly-fishing customer
books a trip with me, I usually
get the question, "What flies and
fly rods should I bring for my
trip to the Keys?" I always tell
them they are welcome to use my
flies and rods so everything is
ready to go when they get here.
Early in the morning with the
sun rising and tailing fish to be
found is no time to be stringing
up rods and making leaders.
Customers also do not have to
lug their equipment through the
airport.
Many customers insist they
would like to use their own stuff.
I get that. After all, they spent a
lot of money on their rods and
reels, and there is something to
be said for catching a trophy fish
on a fly you tied yourself.
This time of year, we are pri-
marily targeting baby tarpon,
permit, bonefish, barracuda and
sharks. For baby tarpon, I like to
use an 8- to 10-weight rod.
Generally, I use a 10-weight rod
for permit when the winds are up
to help cast the heavy flies we're
throwing. A 10-weight rod helps
turn over the longer leaders usu-
ally used for permit fishing.
In summer, the winds are typ-
ically calm, and we usually use
lighter flies so as to not spook
the already-spooked permit.
Wind speed is the factor in
deciding whether to use an 8- or
10-weight rod.
For bonefish, I like a 7- to 9-
weight rod. I prefer the heaviest
rod you can get away with for
bonefish so you can land the fish
quickly. In the summer, we get
higher water temperatures. I
think it's too hard on the bone-
fish to fight them to complete
exhaustion.
For sharks, I like 10- to 12-
weight rods and for barracuda, I
like 8- to 10-weight rods. Eight-
weight works for smaller flies,
and 10-weight rods help turn
over the heavier 'cuda flies.
Many of the people working
at our local fly shops are very
knowledgeable and will help
point you in the right direction
as to what flies to choose.
I believe it was Flip Pallot
who said a time-proven fly prop-
erly presented will fool them
most of the time. I agree. I
would not go looking for the
newest and greatest fly pattern. I
would use a time-proven classic.
If possible, buy or tie your
flies with weed guards. They
often help prevent you from get-


ting snagged on the bottom and
are easily cut off with pliers or
nail clippers if you feel you do
not need them.
As for what colors to choose
for your flies, it depends on the
fish.
For sharks, life-jacket orange
is hard to beat. For tarpon, I like
darker flies in darker water and
brighter flies in clearer water.
When fishing for permit and
bonefish, I like to match the
color of the bottom I am fishing.
More and more, I seem to
choose flies that have dark and
light colors so I am covered
either way, as the bottom often
changes constantly as you pole
down a flat.
You cannot have too many
different weighted flies in one
fly pattern. To determine which
weight to use on your fly, look at
your surroundings on the flat.
How windy is it? A heavy fly
plopping down next to a bonefish
or permit will not be tolerated
when the water surface is like
glass. A lighter fly would be a bet-
ter choice.


What is the current water
flow? If the current is ripping, a
lighter fly could quickly drift by a
fish without being noticed. With
strong current, a heavier fly would
most likely be a better choice.
After you tie on a fly, toss it
overboard and watch how quick-
ly it sinks and how far it drifts
before it hits the bottom. This
way you will have a better idea
how far to lead a fish when the
shot comes.
This is just general informa-
tion to help get you started.
Nothing will prepare you better
than simply spending time on
the water watching your sur-
roundings and observing how
the fish react to your offerings.
This process is never truly mas-
tered, and that is what makes our
sport so fun and challenging.
Good luck.

Fishing the Florida Keys

Judges have little tolerance


I \\as talking to my good
friends Capt. Tom Pierce and
Capt. Mark Schmidt not too
long ago. They're old-school
guides and ha9e had incredi-
ble careers. Tom is probably
one ot the finest captauls to
ever hit the planet. He has
done e\ er\ tlung from blue
marlin to giant tunas to hght-
tackle fishing here in Key
West.
Most guides \h ho h\ en't
been here I I: ears or more
aren't really, fit to c.arr.
Tom's tackle box, and it's
,t.irinig to bother me.
It's funn\ to me to hear
Tom mention something I've
been noticing mrS self. He
,aid, "Do you e\er notice that

ence in the Keys and you'ree

er captain goes bv and just

When I give a courtes-
\\a e to a guide, he usually
ju,,t looks at me and then
looks straight ahead as if I
don't exist. And it seems to
be unique to the flats boats.

unit, boats and motors may
be seized and held as evidence.
At the end of the trial, if the
FWC wins the case, all of those
instruments may be forfeited to
the agency. This is not special to
the FWC. The Monroe County
Sheriff's Office and other law-
enforcement agencies have the
same authority and will probably
take the same action.
There are also enhanced
penalties in place that may pre-
vent the violator from hunting or
fishing in 21 of the 50 states,
since those states have agree-
ments in place to punish viola-
tors across state lines.
And that's not all.
Behind curtain No. 3 you
may also be faced with charges
of interference or obstruction of
justice if you were attempting to
conceal the evidence by dump-
ing the illegal catch. That would
cost an additional $715 and per-
haps jail time.
At this point things may look
pretty grim.
The last card to be played is
the name-drop card. All of us


have heard many times an offi-
cer's name mentioned in this
fashion: "Hey, I'm good friends
with Frankie FWC."
The name drop almost always
fails because it's unethical and
knowing an officer doesn't mean
anything. If you don't believe
me, ask any officer, deputy or
state trooper. The fact is that
when the names begin to fly,
there seems to be something to
hide.
On this next matter, I speak
from positive and negative expe-
rience.
I believe the judges in
Monroe County are very fair and
very strict when it comes to
resource cases. I have lost some
cases but have won most and
have seen the penalties upheld.
Some violators are even actu-
ally banished from Monroe
County for specific time periods,
choosing banishment and the
penalty of arrest if they're seen
in Monroe County during that
time period rather than jail
time.
We work very hard to provide
the evidence and all of the nec-
essary information to the State
Attorney's Office so it can stand

up in court and prosecute the
accused with confidence the case
is solid and the facts clear. The
prosecutors push us to ensure all
the elements of the crimes are
made clear and proven.
To law enforcement, the State
Attorney's Office and the judges
- and the men and women who
make their living on the water
- it's serious business.
FWC officers enjoy meeting
responsible and law-abiding peo-
ple on the water and at the
bridges, and we thank them for

them almost as much.

Fishing the Florida Keys


August September 2007


Luck does 180-degree flip


REDFISH / From 7

started our way back toward the
boat ramp to try to find another
place to fish. The one-hour ride
back was interesting to say the
least.
Facing 3- to 4-foot seas and
whiteout conditions from the
rain made the ride back a white-
knuckle experience. Neither one
of us have ever been out in con-
ditions like this before and now
we are in a flats boat with a
camera man trying to get some
type of footage to make a show
out of.
After a short discussion we
reluctantly agreed that we had
enough and threw in the towel.
Fishing in a tropical storm was
no fun and next to impossible to
just cast, much less catch fish.
While standing in the pour-
ing rain, we contemplated our
decision. We could either stand
here and wait for everyone else
to get back to make the weigh-
in at Wal-Mart or go out and
find a spot close by and just try.
With those options, we
decided to head back out and try
to find some protected waters to
fish.
We idled down the shore not
far from the boat launch in an
area we never fished before and
began using our same crazy tac-
tics: drive the boat into the
grass, stake off and begin cast-
ing. Crazy as this may sound,
the very first point we pulled up
to had a nice red tailing in the
grass, then popping bait with its
whole back out of the water.
This fish was offered several
lures multiple times and multi-
ple ways but it swam off, as if
laughing at us. Frustrating! But
at least there were redfish in the
area.

Tide turns
Continuing down the shore-
line, we continued our pattern of
driving, drifting and staking off.
Within a few minutes of our
first redfish encounter we start-
ed getting bites from some small
trout and then the bite we were
looking for Mr. Red!
In our same bad-luck fashion
for this day, the hook pulls. We
could not believe this was hap-
pening but we continued to fish
hard now that we had an official
redfish sighting.
Shortly after, we were
rewarded with two quick redfish


hookups that stayed for the boat
ride back to weigh-in. Within a
brief moment, our bad-luck day
immediately turned into think-
ing we may actually have a
chance to win.
With a half hour to spare, we
made our way back to boat
check.
Once there, we are not
allowed to talk to the other
teams about what was caught
and should not find out until
weigh-in.
With several exit interviews
all of the teams were off to Wal-
Mart to find out how they fared.
We were the first team to
weigh in since we were fifth
place and had a grand total of 7
pounds, 15 ounces for our two
fish that moved us firmly into
first place with a lead more than
4 pounds.
With the way the conditions
were, catching any fish was a
struggle and we were starting to
feel like we had a real good
shot. Then the suspense starts.
The fourth-place team
weighs in and nothing.
The third-place team has one
fish to weigh but not enough
to move us out.
The second-place team has
another empty basket, and now
it all boils down to us and the
first-place team. Do they have
more than 4.5 pounds? The sus-
pense is killing us.
After the scales balance out
and the weight comes up on the
screen, we realize we just
missed first place by a mere 8
ounces. It was disappointing we
did not win but considering all
of the obstacles we had to over-
come, it was probably the most


exciting tournament we ever
fished.
With this being the last tour-
nament in the Eastern Division
for the year, we were also pleas-
antly surprised to find out we
placed third for the whole divi-
sion.
We couldn't have done it
without Markey's Marine,
Prographics sportswear, Hook
Up lures, Lazy Days restaurant,
Mercury Marine, Quantum rods
and reels, and especially YUM
and Heddon.
And good luck to another
one of our local FLW Redfish
Series anglers Capt. Tadd
VanDemark and his partner, cur-
rently in first place overall in
the Western division with two
tournaments to go.

Fishing the Florida Keys


The fishing's exceeded only by the new memories


TORTUGAS / From 14

hours, we filleted a few fish
once again for dinner that night.
As we discarded the scraps in
the water, multiple Volkswagen-
sized brown objects started cor-
ralling under the boat.
Six or seven jewfish (or
Goliath grouper) up to roughly
300 pounds had come to see
what we had to offer. My good
buddy decides that hand-feeding
tarpon at Robbie's in Islamorada
isn't the only place to feed behe-
moth creatures.
We suspend what is left of a
filleted grouper and slowly rais-
es a jewfish in excess of 200
pounds. Pausing for a moment,
the jewfish charges the surface
and for a brief period of time
there was a hole in the water
where this giant opened its
mouth above water.
In one continuous motion, it
sucked down the grouper carcass.
As the jewfish protruded
from the water to take his meal,
all you heard were a few color-

ful outbursts followed by com-
plete silence until we realized
what had just happened.
Of course, just once was not
enough and we fed the others a
few flag yellowtail we had in the
box, as well.
We were enjoying a night
filled with laughter, libations and
the freshest salt air there is, and
once again the memories of a
great day of fishing were carved
into the wake left behind.
Rolling out the self-inflating
mats and sleeping bags, the party
was just beginning.
As the world rested, we
recounted our now-fading col-
lege memories. As the guys
laughed, drank and had a heck of
a time, I couldn't help but feel a
sense of satisfaction knowing
they were having a good time.
For many avid fisherman and
captains, we gain more joy out
of seeing a friend or charter
catch fish than personally catch-
ing fish yourself.
We awoke on the third day to
flat-calm seas once again.

us back toward Key West and
away from this fisherman's
paradise.
Needing to fill a void in the
fish box, we worked bottom
from 200 to 240 feet looking for
muttons. The key to muttons is
stealth, like a flats guide poling
to a weary permit. Muttons have
an extreme sense for their sur-
roundings.
As I have learned from a
number of commercial fisher-
men, success with the muttons
starts with keeping the sinker as
still as possible. The vibrations
from the lead bouncing or
rolling on the bottom will keep
the fish spooked, leading to poor
results. Furthermore, it is impor-
tant to present a variety of baits;
fresh kingfish strips, bonita
strips and butterflied goggle
eyes, often are more productive
than live baits when targeting
muttons.
On this particular trip the
mutton were hard to come by,
but the last day of fishing was
productive, with a steady pick of
red grouper, scamp and yellow-
eye snapper.
With a happy crew, a box full
of fish and a few empty beer
cans, I pointed the bow east and
waited for the familiar site of the
Marquesas. Passing the north
side of the Marquesas, I remem-
bered the many nights spent in
Mooney Harbor, including one
particular night I spent on an 18-


foot flats boat only to wake up
with my feet in the water.
Eventually passing what is
left of the house on stilts at the
end of the Northwest Channel, it
is hard not to picture
Hemingway up there writing his
famed novels, many of which
have inspired fishermen across
the world.
Another trip was successful,
but more importantly, it was
three days spent with close
friends and family, all the while
pursuing a passion that runs
deep through my soul.
As Fort Jefferson is a wel-


coming familiar site, so too is
Key West, and as I round
Fleming Key and head for home.
there was only one thing on my
mind.
When will I be back to the fort?

bait and can attract the attention
of the larger snapper. The large
snapper get aggressive when
they see "their" meal being con-
sumed.
A telltale sign the bite might
be turning off is if you catch a
few grunts on the large pieces of
cut bait. This indicates the larger
snapper have stopped feeding
for the time being and have
given the grunts enough time to
nibble the pieces of bait down to
a manageable size. If this hap-
pens a few times in a row, it
might be time to try another


spot.
It is important to remember
that these snapper are there to
spawn. Taking only what you
need for your next meal will
allow the species to propagate.
The limit on mangrove snap-
per is five fish of at least 10
inches for sport fishermen. By
using these suggestions, you will
be able to maximize the size of
the five you get to put on your
plate.

Lamp has some regrets about his spearfishing past


LEGEND / From 11

Sure, he'll catch a lot fish
with the hundreds of customers
a year he takes out on his
Dreamcatcher Charters. But
just about every prize is
released. He won't even gill a
giant tarpon for a photo any-
more.


You see, Lamp once was
one of the best free-diving
spear fishermen in the state. He
entered and won tournaments
in St. Petersburg and Fort
Myers. He also made a lot of
money spearing fish such as
amberjacks, red snapper and
Goliath grouper, then called
jewfish, which are now protect-
ed. Lamp used to haul in as


many as 12 a day, and each
could weigh up to about 450
pounds. That's quite a haul at
the price then of 80 cents a
pound.
He says divers like him are
directly responsible for the lack
of jewfish and big grouper in
the Gulf.
His dad was a hardcore free-
diver, as well, who competed

"It was a challenging thing

thing."
Lamp once got a nasty bite
from a barracuda, and that side-
lined him for a while and put
the underwater gladiator in him
on hold. But that need to com-
pete never left him, and now it
manifests itself in his business.

Fishing the Florida Keys


Tides are as basic to successful fishing as
bait and tackle. On this page, you'll find
all the information you'll need to deter-
mine what the tide will be.
Below are the tides for two areas of South
Florida: Key West Harbor and Miami Harbor
entrance. Between them and the reference table
at right, you can find the tide for many places
in the Keys.
For example, say you want to find out what
the tide would be like on the flats in front of
Tavemier Creek on Aug. 26. First, determine
which tide table to check. In this case,


Tavemier, Hawk Channel is on the Miami
Harbor reference table. Locate the Miami
Harbor tide table and find Aug. 26. There will
be a high tide at 7:05 a.m. at the Miami Harbor.
Now, look again to the reference table to
convert the Miami tide to a local tide.
According to the reference chart, add 29 min-
utes to high tide times to get the Tavemier tide.
The high at Tavemier will be at 7:34 a.m.
Pretty soon you'll have your timing down
and your success rate up.
