Columbus Regatta gets new backer, adds cat classes


BY MARIA MERZEAU
For the Waterfront Times
MIAMI After floundering with no sponsor these last
four years, the upcoming 56th Columbus Day Regatta now
boasts financial backer Bacardi Rum.
It also has two new classes of Beach Cats, catamarans of
14 feet and longer, scored on the Portsmouth handicap sys-
tem. They bring the race's total number of classes to 15.
Organizers expect 150 sailboats this year after 2009's
event drew 100. In recent years, the economy and Hurricane
Wilma trimmed the number of race entries.
This year, boats will set sail on Saturday, Oct. 9 and
Sunday, Oct 10. Racing begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday in the
vicinity of the Rickenbacker Causeway and ends just north of
Black Ledge. On Sunday, participants will leave Black Ledge
to race back to Rickenbacker Causeway.
The cost of the event jumps from $95 to $125 after
Oct. 2, with no entries accepted after Oct. 5. United States

This year, boats
will set sail on
Saturday, Oct. 9
and Sunday, Oct 10.
Racing begins at
10 a.m. on Saturday
in the vicinity of the
Rickenbacker Causeway
and ends north of
Black Ledge.



Sailing Association members receive a $5 discount by
showing a membership card. All first time regatta partici-
pants get a $10 discount.
A skippers meeting takes place Friday, Oct. 8 at 7
p.m. at the Coral Reef Yacht Club. After the race on
Saturday, Oct. 9, a barbecue will be held dockside for
returning racers at Coral Reef Yacht Club.
Organizers have been struggling to run the regatta with
no financial sponsors after they lost the backing of West
Marine four years ago.
"Our biggest and most exciting thing this year in the
regatta is that Bacardi has come on board," said Mark Pincus,
regatta chairman. "The sailors know that when Bacardi spon-
sors a regatta, the party gets bigger."
Just how Bacardi will impact the regatta remains to
be seen.
"We will be introducing new exciting things this year and
we are not ready to give away those secrets yet," Pincus said.


Also for the first time, the regatta has been certified
"clean" through the nonprofit organization Sailors for the Sea,
which assists boating organizations in learning how to be
environmentally friendly.
"We promote green use of our resources because we
understand that if we don't protect them, we won't have
them in the future," Pincus said. "We don't want trash
being thrown overboard. We obviously don't use motors.
We are sailors, we are much cleaner than other boats, and
we want to protect our environment."

Party atmosphere prevails
Regatta organizers emphasize that the Columbus Day
Regatta has nothing to do with rowdy weekend celebrations
traditionally going on at Elliot Key. Spectators of the race
have historically been known to party nonstop throughout the
two-day event. Reports of nude celebrants, and massive
amounts of trash thrown overboard, have long helped define
the race's image.
"Because of the Columbus Day weekend, we no longer
incorporate Elliot Key into our regatta plans," Pincus said.
Chase Camacho, chairman of South Florida Boat
Owners Group, has been going to Elliot Key for the
Columbus holiday weekend for the past 10 years.
"It's just a lot of fun. We are all about making sure that
we all have a good time and that we are all safe and enjoy the
whole weekend."
By Sunday afternoon 5,000 boats pack Elliot Key,
Camacho said.
"When you walk into Elliot Key that Columbus Day
weekend, you think you are walking into a marina with docks.
"There are so many boats you hardly see the water."


Boat club raising funds for kids with cancer

For the Waterfront Times
For 20 years the Lauderdale Small Boat Club has been
helping charities around Broward County.
Now they are raising funds for the Jessica June
Children's Cancer Foundation, which provides financial


assistance for needy kids dealing with cancer. The club is
hosting a Nov. 6 charity dinner for the foundation.
The dinner takes place 5 p.m at the Lauderdale Small
Boat Club facilities at 1740 SW 42nd St. in Fort Lauderdale.
The cost of the charity dinner is $15 and includes a silent auc-
tion, raffles and a bake sale.
The boating club expects about 200 businesses to par-
ticipate in several events and fundraisers they're hosting to
support the cancer foundation.
"We are very happy with the local marine business
support," said Edward James Schinski, the club's vice com-
modore. "Every dollar counts."
The club expects about 300 people to attend the
upcoming charity event. They hold several charity
events throughout the year in order to reach their year-
end goal.
Schinski said the club raised $23,000 for their
chosen 2009 charity, Abi's Place, a school for children
with disabilities.
"We hope to surpass last year's number," he said.
Other fundraisers to benefit the Jessica June include
a marine flea market on Saturday, Oct. 16-17 and

Biscayne's boisterous boaters fight to keep the party


BY ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront Times Fishing Columnist
News item: Biscayne National
Park's plan for limited mooring
fields to reduce ;.!1i;,,.ii,, conges-
tion, rowdy parties and environ-
mental damage was withdrawn for
a do-over in the wake of hostile
public reaction. Opponents com-
plained that c ,I i ,,,,. ,,t of massive
hell raising would violate a cher-
ished tradition.
A marine version of the hit show "Twiddler on the
Spoof," revised for South Florida family audiences, is playing
in Biscayne National Park. What, you didn't know? I'll take
you. Bring your stash and booze but don't get stoned yet. We
shouldn't hit the wall before intermission.
Great crowd, huh? I'll ground us on the sandbar. Throw
the anchor as soon as I squeeze us into that narrow space
between boats. The drunks on the left, you moon them. For
the right, I got the finger. Gimme a beer.
We're just in time for the opening number. See the corpu-
lent dude sI.j.jci inrl on the bow deck, the one with a six-pack
in each hand? That's the protagonist, Shmohawk, played by
Enorme Barrig6n, the baritone. Let's listen:
"Tradition! Tradition!
Who has the right, as master of the boat,
To blow a train horn and dump beer bottles in the bay?
The papa! Tradition!
[Shmohawk breaks wind loudly. Crowd cheers]
Who gets to throw soiled diapers overboard?
The mama! Tradition!
Who can tear up the grass flats,
Turn the marine food chain inside out,
Feed plastic bags to turtles?
The daughter! The son! Our guests! Our friends!
Tradition! Tradition!"
[Crowd joins the chant -Tradition! Tradition! Horns are
blown, bells ring, bikini tops fly from antennae].

Ung


ed the mooring buoy plan to the public on Aug. 3 and 4, I've
been holding on to one thing he said because it seemed so
prophetic:
"If we do it right, more buoys and markers would be a
relatively easy way to deal with the public, and if we do it
wrong we'll only make it worse."
So far, no good. The plan has to be done over, and not
merely because it was somewhere between insufficiently pop-
ular and too unpopular.
Why is popularity necessary? Because the park is so
short of enforcement rangers that poor Lewis, a former park
cop himself, must devise a plan that all but enforces itself.
Pie in the sky, it says here.
Biscayne's problem is that the public is too big for the
park -unavoidably, because it's the only U.S. national park
right beside a large metropolitan area. As a comparatively
small one, about 14 miles wide and 22 miles long, it lacks
space to spread crowds of visitors so far apart that nobody gets
in anybody's way.
Biscayne's surface area, in Biscayne Bay and offshore to
the 60-foot depth, is 173,000 acres. Compare that to Florida
Bay's half a million acres, itself a mere third of Everglades
National Park's total territory.
You don't see mobbed boaters carousing on Florida Bay.
Why not? I agree with a stranger in Miramar, using the online
handle Capt. Backyard, who posted this on a Florida
Sportsman forum
"I often dread the drive to Flamingo (Everglades National
Park) because of that 38-mile stretch through the park before
getting to the marina. But I've come to accept it as a filter. It's
;: ,-nile-long filter that filters out 98 percent of the slapdicks
that would come there and not respect it if it was a much clos-
er drive to Miami.
"Can you imagine coming around East Cape and seeing
200 boats and 1,000 people partying and leaving trash all over
East Cape?"

Not in Everglades, but in Biscayne that's tradition -
floating nightclubs where anything goes. If you want to blame
Lewis, go ahead, but he's been superintendent for only five
years much less than half the problem's history.
The system is working as it should. National park super-
intendents are required to lay out their plans for public
approval. Disapproval often leads to improvement. We can
hope that Biscayne's revision is better. Lewis hopes to present
it early next year.
The worst effect of the do-over delay is that it stalls other
parts of the plan that should have been accomplished a decade
or more ago and have attracted no opposition.
Boundary markers to let everyone know they're entering
a national park, not New Orleans on Mardi Gras night.
Enhancement of the Marine Heritage Trail, a row of ship-
wrecks on the offshore reefs. Most important of all, the mark-
ing-off of ravaged Featherbed Banks so that nobody going
aground there can plead it's an honest mistake.
"It's all one package, so we will have to wait before we
can act on these aspects of the plan as well," Lewis told me.
Wait a minute. Somewhere, far above the superinten-
dent's pay grade, somebody in the Interior Department needs
both the authority and the guts to say no. Break the mooring
fields out of the plan and take the time to get that right, but go
ahead on the others without delay.
Where national park issues are concerned, I go beyond
my own stubborn opinions to outfits like the National Parks
Conservation Association. That's a non-profit whose staff
spends full time on issues like these. They've been document-
ing Biscayne's deterioration for years.
Though it calls for clarification, NPCA supports the
mooring plan.
Jason Bennis, the NPCA's marine program manager in
South Florida, submitted commentary and advice that revel-
ers of the park's floating nightclubs ought to consider while
sober.
Biscayne's natural resources are in bad shape and up to
now the Park Service has done little about it. It's way past

Wildly abundant lionfish easily overtake native species


BY ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront Times Fishing Writer
Dive carefully. It's a jungle down there, where the itsy-
bitsy lionfish may soon be king of critters unless some-
body fights it.
Luckily, somebody is divers and snorkelers rallied by
REEF, the Reef Environmental Education Foundation. With
support from the federal government's NOAA and the Keys
National Marine sanctuary, REEF is organizing dive-fishing
derbies devoted to preventing a lionfish takeover of the
Florida Keys' reefs.
In the first tournament, in mid-September at Key Largo,
27 teams captured 534 lionfish and imprisoned them in cool-
ers. Another tournament is scheduled for Oct. 16 in Marathon
and a third for Nov. 13 in Key West.
The winners were a team called Raar Talent, consisting
of Alan Wilson and Brett Roach of Islamorada, Martha
Austin of Washington D.C. and Scott Austin of Tavernier.
Their score: 111 lionfish.
The biggest capture was a 10.6-incher turned in by the
Lion Killers team Randy and Karen Hendrick of
Islamorada with Ronnie Freeman of Marathon.
Contestants were served a meal of lionfish, which are
reported to be delicious. In order to keep the pressure on
them, NOAA is trying to encourage development of a
food fishery.
Tournament organizers didn't expect 27 teams or 100-
plus divers for the first derby, but they got them. If there are
more who couldn't make it that day, the prize money -
$1,000 for the most fish and $500 for the single biggest -
looks like incentive enough to fill up the next two events.
Lionfish, native to the Indian and Pacific oceans but
occupying aquaria worldwide, don't need weapons of mass
destruction. In their own way they are weapons of mass
destruction, reproducing like mad, taking over the habitat of
local reef fish and eating their food.
Not only that, scientists say they eat more of it and they
eat it faster than the local fish. For sheer gluttony, lionfish
make champion hot dog and pizza gut-stuffers look anorexic.
Except for human divers and occasionally a hook and
line fisherman, lionfish have no predators. Other fish, appar-
ently aware of the lions' venomous spines, avoid them.

Lionfish, native to the Indian and Pacific oceans but
occupying aquaria worldwide, reproduce like mad, taking
over the habitat of local reef fish and eating their food.

Divers in the Keys may only be able only to slow down
the spread of lionfish, not eliminate them.
According to a study conducted by NOAA and North
Carolina State University, stopping the growth of the lionfish
population will require the physical removal of about 27 per-
cent of them every month for a year.
That may be more than divers in the Keys can accom-
plish NOAA suspects.
"The study's recommendation of a 27 percent monthly
reduction represents a major fishing effort which may not be
feasible in some areas, such as the expansive areas where
lionfish have become established off the southeast U.S. coast,
but which may be possible in areas where lionfish habitat is
more constrained."
Florida may yet supply opportunities like that. Last sum-
mer, two juvenile lionfish were caught far offshore in the
Gulf of Mexico and more recently lionfish were sighted in
the Loxahatchee River in Palm Beach County.


Gulf snook must be released
You can catch and keep snook again on Florida's east
coast, but on the Gulf side and in the Keys the Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has changed the
rules no keepers until Sept. 1, 2011.
Commissioners decided to play it safe for another year
after learning that last January's two consecutive waves of
fatally cold weather killed between 200,000 and 300,000
snook, and considering suggestions from state scientists and
fishery managers.
Although the decision denies a meal of snook to thou-
sands of Gulf and Keys fishing-doers, it nevertheless has
their support, said Rick Roberts, executive director of The
Snook Foundation, based in Sarasota. The foundation
reported scientific findings to its members and surveyed
them for input on alternative regulations that the commis-
sion also was considering.
"The FWC Commissioners took extraordinary care to
respect stakeholder opinions on both Florida coasts," said
Rick Roberts, the foundation's executive director.
Scientists at FWC's Fish & Wildlife Research Institute,
based in St. Petersburg, found that snook mortality from the
cold was greatest on the Gulf side and in Everglades National
Park, where the fish had fewer opportunities to find deep,
safe water. Less harm was done on the Atlantic side, where
there were better-sheltered, warmer waters and easy access to
the deep ocean.
The scientists think it safe to allow a limited harvest of
snook because there was an ample reserve population when
the chill hit, and also because it would let them verify their
findings by sampling the recreational catch.
Beginning on Sept. 17, Atlantic anglers were
cleared to keep snook until the regularly scheduled end
of the season on Dec. 15. The rule includes Lake
Okeechobee and the Kissimmee River, which have
small snook populations.

Reducing overcrowding may mean keeping people out


time for some tough love.
"Should future conditions change so that all park users
are provided education and understand their role as stewards
of the resource; law enforcement capacities are dramatically
increased; and visitor experiences are improved... a new man-
agement approach for the park's marine mooring buoys and
markers might be warranted," Bennis wrote.
"However, at this time the park's impaired resources,
compromised visitor experience, and serious safety concerns
require strong measures to be taken."
He suggested adding a mandatory boater education pro-
gram, a system of issuing permits to use the mooring buoys
and a new approach to enforcement of park regulations.
"NPCA is concerned that the law enforcement ranger
capacity has not increased over the past 18 years despite an
increase in the number of boats and their use in BNP," the
commentary says. It suggests enlisting partner organizations
to provide volunteer support for enforcement and adding sea-
sonal and temporary rangers to the staff. For the full text of
NPCA's recommendations, see: http://www.npca.org/south-
florida/pdf/NPCACommentsBuoys_Markers.pdf.
Before withdrawing the plan, Mark Lewis posted a letter
on the park's website to debunk a forum posting that's about
halfway between shrill and hysterical yet appeared to res-
onate with people who hadn't taken time to read the plan or
attend a public presentation.
Posted by someone called Scarab30, it untruly declared
an end to the popular Columbus Weekend Regatta and added
(in part):
"The government is trying to shut down pleasure boat-
ing in all of Biscayne National Park. Where will we go if
they do this? You will be fined and/or arrested for being at
any sandbar."
The post urged forum members to complain by the Sept.
3 deadline for public comment. "After Sept. 3 it's over! They
will not accept any comments and pleasure boating in Miami
as you know it will be over!"
It may comfort the superintendent to think all he has to
do is a better job of communicating the plan's intentions and
non-intentions to a larger constituency than he realized he

had. He shouldn't think so. More than that, he needs a plan
that can be made to work.
Fields of mooring buoys seem like a good idea that every-
one could find a way to live with, but when it comes down to
outlining the space each field is given, the reasonable number
of buoys in each and what to do about all the boats and peo-
ple who can't tie up, the idea doesn't seem as good.
Assume that 200 boats crowd into each of five popular
shallow-water gathering places on a Saturday afternoon.
That's a total of 1,000 boats. Let's say there's an average of
three people per boat.
Assume also that the maximum capacity of each moor-
ing field is 50 boats, or 250 in all. That leaves 750 other boats
and 2,250 people hovering and jockeying for position in case
someone goes away.


One of the goals of reduced crowding is the restoration of
tranquility. Does adding potential for conflict seem like a
good way to achieve that?
Does reducing the overcrowding have to mean that thou-
sands of people must be kept out? It might.
By law, the Park Service has to keep the park accessible
for the public's enjoyment and also must protect the natu-
ral resources, not tolerate excessive damage.
Park superintendents are not given the financial resources
needed to carry out that duty, so they are reduced to adding
regulations they can't enforce. They have to hope the people
who trash the place will stop if only the right words can be
found to ask them.
How about "pretty please"?

More sailors discovering Columbus Day Regatta


--IlhtII JM HI----
Humble beginnings
The Columbus Day Regatta started in 1954 by founding
members of the Coral Reef Yacht Club including Timothy J.
Sullivan whose name graces the top trophy.
"When this regatta originally started, the idea was to have
a race down to Elliot Key and everybody would camp over in
Elliot Key, and Sunday morning they all race back to Miami,"
Pincus said.
Karen Mitchell, a quadriplegic and former member of the


U.S. Disabled Sailing Team, has been racing in the regatta
since 1999. She won last year's regatta with her Sonar 23-foot
mono haul, and will race again this year in the same craft.
"I really enjoy that the regatta is two full days of sail-
ing," she said. "It's not just going around like inflatable
marks in a short area, you get to go all over the bay. I high-
ly recommend the regatta to everybody whether they are
serious racers or day sailors or people that just like to go
out and cruise around."

Super nautical

superstitions


BY MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront Times Admiralty Columnist
When my dad retired from the Coast
Guard, he bought a 28-foot sports fisherman
as a "project boat." Eventually, much to the
relief of my mother who was watching the
cash flow, Dad made the boat operational.
On her maiden voyage down the river,
passengers commented on how well the
boat was running. To this my father quickly
replied, "No! It's running very poorly!"
When we were finally back at the pier,
I asked my dad what I had missed and why
he thought the boat was performing poorly.
His response: "Son, you never say good
things about a boat's performance when it's
away from the dock!"
Apparently, my college educated,
career officer father the same man who
introduced me to the works of Sinclair Lewis
and Ernest Hemingway was also a firm
believer in certain nautical superstitions.
Dad had spent nearly 30 years at sea
where he saw, and occasionally described,
many incidents that he believed transcended
coincidence. This seems to be a pattern with
many career mariners. After all, nautical
superstitions have been around as long as
there have been boats and the ancient rules
governing much of maritime law.
Which brings about an interesting
thought: Could failing to abide by a known
superstition result in a boat being consid-
ered legally unseaworthy?
You see, under traditional maritime
law, a seaman has a right to a seaworthy ves-
sel for the voyage. A failure in seaworthi-
ness that results in an injury to a seaman
makes the vessel libel for those injuries. (An
example might be a poorly maintained lad-
der that causes a fall and injury.)
With this in mind, there is a cornucopia
of nautical superstitions that if believed and
not heeded, could theoretically lead to all
sorts of mishaps to an unfortunate crew -


or render the ship unseaworthy. So, to fore-
warn and amuse since Halloween is fast
:ipplu'.liniij. here's a list of some better
known ones. Note: no modem court has
ruled that any of these superstitions have
rendered a vessel unseaworthy. Naturally,
you're welcome to seek the advice of other
counsel. With that disclaimer, here's my list:
Bringing flowers aboard a vessel
before a voyage is bad luck. It suppos-
edly summons death.
Pouring wine on the deck of a vessel
before a voyage is good luck. It "pla-
cates the gods."
Interestingly, black cats on a vessel are
good luck.
Never start a voyage on the first
Monday in April or the second Monday
in August. The origins of this are
unknown to me.
Never start a voyage on a Friday. (Note:
this old belief dates back to the
Christian traditions of Good Friday and
fasting.)
Never start a voyage on New Year's Eve.
Seamen should never use black luggage.
Never whistle while at sea, as it will
summon bad weather.
A silver coin placed under the mast-
head will result in a safe and successful
voyage.
Hearing the sound of church bells at
sea is a bad omen.
Sharks following a vessel is a bad
omen. (Well, duh!!)
Dolphins following a vessel is a good
omen. They scare away the sharks!
Throwing stones from the vessel into
the sea will summon storms.
Losing a mop or a bucket over the side

Dead

Reckoning



Bye, bye

boating?


BY BOB E. SHERMAN
Waterfront Times Columnist
I'm getting in on the ground floor by
opening a canoe rental business. Based on
recent news stories, it would seem that
recreational boating is on its way out.
Florida's $18 billion marine industry is
playing second fiddle to "the gentle marine
mammal." National raft-ups such as those
sponsored by Marine Max, or the Columbus
Day Regatta, will soon be history.
People buying expensive waterfront
property will no longer be able to watch
beautiful boats passing. Instead, if they're
lucky, they may see a passing manatee -
only in season of course.
Next year the Aquapalooza, Marine
Max's national raft-up, will replace country
music artist Brad Paisley with a violinist in
a gondola who will move from mooring
buoy to buoy playing a few songs.
"Boater reaction subdued after mana-
tee proposals" read a front-page headline in
the August edition of the "Waterfront
Times." I think that the boaters have given
up the fight, as they are no match for well-
funded organizations such as the Save the
Manatee Club. At the rate we are going, we
won't need docks or slips.
In fact, getting a permit to build a new
dock in South Florida requires clearance
from the Vatican. God forbid if the installa-
tion of a piling disturbs some seagrass.
Aside from providing food for manatees,
seagrass also provides a natural cover for
Al-Qaeda Seals to sneak into U.S. waters.
I don't eat seafood. Most people I know
could never understand why, and they were
always giving me their favorite recipe for
mahi-mahi. The real reason I don't eat fish
is to do my small part to compensate for the
over-fishing problem. I love seafood, but I
know if I eat it every night I'll be responsi-
ble for the extinction of several species.


Balancing progress with saving the
earth is an admirable goal. However, how
long would it have taken for Lewis and
Clark to cross the country if they had to pick
up after the mules, or pick a different cross-
ing at the Mississippi because there was a
sea turtle nesting at the crossing point?
The cost of boating adds to the prob-
lem. Dockage, insurance and fuel have sky
rocketed. Insurance company executives act
like a deer caught in the headlights when
they have to pay a claim. We put a man on
the moon, but we can't make my Sea Ray
get 2 mpg.
There are television ads encouraging
the use of pump-out facilities and yet few, if
any, new pump-out stations have been
opened. On a trip to Key West, albeit two
years ago, I found all the pump-outs on our
route to be inoperable. Even though pay toi-
lets were banned in the mid '70s, marinas
still charge from $5 to $30 to pump out your
holding tank.
My grassroots organization, Committee
for Readily Accessible Pump-outs or
CRAP for short which I started several
years ago, has not drawn the required polit-
ical clout to stop the problem. I guess politi-
cians just don't care.
Unless you're buying a mega-yacht,
there just doesn't seem to be any good news
for the boating industry. Florida sales tax
has recently been capped at $18,000 and
dredging will begin soon around Port
Everglades to accommodate larger yachts.
Used boat prices are depressed, so it
should be a good time to buy a boat. It just
so happens that my Sea Ray is for sale.
Don't let the fact that your unemployment is
running out stop you. Being up to your eye-
balls in debt is the American way.

Wanted: Input on Florida's signature freshwater fish


I--IM.-7l, RI TVllMlR-T-
Snook size matters
Size limits stay the same as before: All snook shorter
than 28 inches from nose to tail or longer than 32 inches must
be released. You can only keep one per day. If you don't have
a $10 snook stamp on your saltwater license, you'll need one.
Commissioners made a point of emphasizing that catch
and release fishing for snook can continue during the closed
season, as it always has likely an important factor in get-
ting the support of Gulf side anglers.
The Snook Foundation began its survey in May and pre-
sented the results when the commission met on Sept. 2. It
reported the data without taking a formal position on what
the commission should do.
"Our members had mixed feelings about what should
be done," said foundation chairman Brett Fitzgerald. "Most
anglers on the Gulf Coast want the season to remain closed.
A small majority wanted the season open on the Atlantic
Coast. The Snook Foundation is all about science-based
management, and the science supports reopening the sea-
son on the Atlantic Coast, and keeping it closed for safety's
sake in the Gulf."
He said the foundation will continue collecting data
through its Angler Action-Snook Watch program from
members and non-members who want to participate. It's
meant to complement seine sampling and other research
done by state scientists.
"Sheer volume reduces bias in such data," said
Fitzgerald, "and we've already surpassed more than 1,100
hours of fishing effort recorded."
The data form's link is www.snookfoundation.org/data.
Devoted as it is to a single species, The Snook
Foundation probably is the most influential single stake-
holder in that fishery. Its website, www.snookfoundation.org


is a convenient gateway to FWC actions affecting snook
fishermen and to the snook work of the Fish & Wildlife
Research Institute.
What can fishing-doers do to aid in the snook's recovery?
"The best thing you can do for snook is to handle them
and all fish you intend to release like you would a good
friend," said Linda Roberts, administrator of the Snook
Foundation.
The hooks you use probably are the single most impor-
tant factor.
If you haven't adopted circle hooks already for snook
fishing, get some now. Use them always with natural baits and
try them on artificial lures. They're also great for fly fishing.
Because snook don't literally bite they capture
their prey whole and swallow it whole J hooks are
likely to get stuck in the fish's gullet, causing serious
injury. Properly used, a circle hook almost always comes
back up and snags in the corer of the fish's jaw, where
it's easy to remove.
Snook follow their prey and catch it from behind.
When you get a strike, don't set the hook hard as you do
with a J hook. Instead, give the fish a moment or two to
turn back the way it came. Then reel the line tight and the
hook will set itself.

Handling methods
Here are more ways to handle the fish carefully and
release them with little to no injury:
Net a snook or lip-grab it to lift it from the water. Don't
yank it into the air and drop it on the deck, kerplunk.
Limit use of lipping tools like the Boga-grip. Use them
to get the snook from the water into the boat but not to dan-
gle the fish vertically. That stretches the mouth cartilage and
can damage the snook's ability to feed. The heavier the fish,
the worse the harm.


If you want a photo, hold the fish horizontally with one
hand cradling it from below.
Reduce the number of treble hooks on artificial lures to
single hooks fore and aft. Some people think that alters the
weight and/or action of a lure. If you hate to risk it, try cut-
ting off only the points of two hooks in each set of three and
crimp the barb on the remaining hook.
If your lure has three sets of treble hooks, remove the
middle set entirely. Excess hooks snag a fish in too many
places, including eyes and gills. Removing multiple hooks
from a fish keeps it out of the water longer and requires
over-handling.
To release an exhausted fish, don't throw it overboard.
Hold it in the water while supporting its weight from below
until it swims away.

Black bass survey
Florida continues working on a long-term management
plan for black bass, the state's signature freshwater fish. In
hopes of making this the primary destination for bass
anglers, the idea is considering a variety of ideas that
include creating trophy fisheries where the biggest ones
hang out as well as quantity locations where plenty of
smaller bass can be caught.
The latest angler opinion survey on the subject is online.
Begin at http://myfwc.com/BassPlansurvey.
There you can read the entire draft plan and even down-
load it entirely as a pdf document. You can also link directly
to the survey, answer the questions and submit it to FWC.
When new regulations eventually are re-enacted, there
are likely to be some dissenters howling "They never asked
me," but in fact they are asking you now.
With present public comment period ends Wednesday,
Oct. 13. If the plan turns out badly, bass fishermen who don't
participate will have only themselves to blame.

Small Boat Club seeking donations for kids'cancer foundation


a cocktail party on Tuesday, Oct. 19 at The Wasie Villa in
Fort Lauderdale.
Boating and fishing equipment will dominate the marine
flea market. Raffles will take place and food will be ;i\ .iil.lblh
The Wasie Foundation is assisting the club by spon-
soring the cocktail party to benefit Jessica June. Tickets
cost $20.
The club picked Jessica June from the Internet because it
preferred helping children in Broward County, said Connie
Wadsworth, charity committee chairperson.
"They are part of the neighborhood, and we can see how
the contributions help the children."
For over 20 years, the club has chosen a different char-
ity to help each year including Goodwill and the Make-A-
Wish Foundation.
"This year we adopted the Jessica Jones Foundation.
Next year we'll adopt somebody else," Wadsworth said.
The 62-year-old private boat club provides service
to small boat owners along with dockage and haul-out
facilities in Fort Lauderdale. The club currently has about
450 members.
The Jessica June Children's Cancer Foundation started in
2004, providing financial assistance to over 880 children and
their family members in Broward, Miami Dade and Palm
Beach Counties.
The founder, Sandra Muvdi, started the non-profit foun-


dation in memory of her only child, Jessica June Eiler Muvdi,
who died of cancer.
"We are very touched that the Lauderdale Small Boat
Club members chose to participate in the children cancer
foundation to benefit local families that are in crisis during
pediatric cancer," Muvdi said.
"... It's hard to handle the need, which is much more
than what we are able to do to help these families. So, if we
get outside support funding, it's really much appreciated
because we only can do so much."

Superstitions to ponder before your next boat outing


during a voyage is bad luck.
* Never say the word "DROWNED" while at sea.
* Cutting your hair or nails at sea is bad luck.
* Never kill a gull, albatross, or dolphin. Remember the
Ancient Mariner!
* Never hand the ship's flag through the rungs of a ladder.
This is bad luck.
* The sight of a beautiful naked woman is said to please the
sea god Neptune, keeping the vessel safe from storms and
other mishaps. This is the reason why so many figure-
heads were carved in this manner. (Note: Ok, gentlemen
readers, I know what you're thinking!! If anyone attempts


to use this as an explanation for a particularly special boat
party, you're on your own!)
Well, that's my list of nautical superstitions. A few might
even have some sense behind their origins. As my dad put it
to me, "If it's true, it isn't a superstition!"
By the way, in case you're wondering, Dad considered
the Bermuda Triangle to be nonsense.
Happy Halloween!

Good times keep couple aboard four days a week


Who's who among South Florida's boaters? Meet the
people working and enjoying the boating lifestyle in a
monthly feature that asks readers to share just what it is
that makes boating in Florida personal.
If you would like to tell your story, please e-mail
editor@waterfronttimes.com. Use the words "Close-Up"
in the subject line and include your name and phone num-
ber where you can be reached during the day.
Meet Ann Hildreth, age "55-plus." She and husband
George, both retired, live in Fort Lauderdale.
Type and name of your boat?
A 35-foot Intreped powerboat.
Where is it docked?
Behind our house.
How much time do you spent aboard your boat?
Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Do you have a favorite local boating spot?
We like Wahoo Bay, which is now know as Hillsboro
Inlet south side. It's close to home and that means not using
much fuel. Also, we pass the gas dock, two restaurants, the
Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse, so it's also scenic. A lot of locals
have been coming since they were kids.
Who accompanies you?
Whoever can be on the dock on time.
How did you get involved in boating?


lse-


Through my husband who's an ex-commercial fisherman
from Cocoa Beach, 1958ish.
Name the one item you can't live without on board.
Water!
What has been your scariest experience on the water?
A storm rolled in while we were on the Hillsboro Inlet
south side. Most smaller boats had left. My husband had
said that either way we would be caught in it, so we hun-
kered down.
A sailboat came in and anchored not far from us. They
were literally going from side to side they had their sail up.
Our anchor started slipping and we were just spinning around
in the wind like a top, getting pretty close to the sailboat.
George, being the old salt that he is, saved the day. Really
you had to be there.
Your most memorable time on the water?
Today. Every day.
What do you like least about boating in South Florida?
Probably tying up at the home end.
What do you like most?
All the new friends.


Ann Hildreth, and her husband George, both retired, enjoy
spending most of the week aboard their boat.
