I hear it all the time. "We're coming to Jacksonville, staying at the beach, at a nice hotel with a fancy swimming pool, because the kids are out of school and wondered what else can we do with our kids?"

Hello Anglers! Summer has been here for quit a while in N.E. Florida. Most of you don't really care what month the calendar says. As a fisherman, I call it summer when the Spanish Mackerel show up at the inlet. And that happened back in May!

When you think of a pink bird, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? For most people, it would be a flamingo.
