August 2014 Fishing Report, Robinson Brothers Guide Service, Apalachicola

by on Aug.28, 2014, under Apalachicola, Carrabelle and St. George Island

‘m not exactly sure how it got to be the end of August so soon, but here it is Labor Day Weekend already. Just to recap – we’ve had a most excellent summer fishing wise. Those of you who follow us on facebook have most likely seen fishing photos posted fairly regularly.  We’ve had Great weather for not only tarpon from a flats boat but also many many happy Bay fishing anglers and plenty of successful Offshore trips.

This is generally the time of year for transition – Tommy heads to the keys. Chris, Nathan, David & the rest of the Flats Guides are going into Fall Redfish mode and Bay Guides are looking forward to a little bit cooler weather for their fall trips. That said, we’re still seeing some tarpon and Chris caught Spanish mackerel to smoke for dip. (he makes really tasty smoked fish dip)

I’ve begun the process of contacting anglers who fished with us this past spring and summer to find out who wants first dibs on their days in 2015. If you did and if you do and you haven’t already done so – please reply to this email or call me to reserve your trips.

If you haven’t yet made your plans for this weekend, we still have some fishing trips available. Hope the weather cooperates for our fishing and for your holiday plans! The Pelican (Riverfront condo) is not yet rented this weekend if you get the urge to visit Apalachicola. Have fun, be safe & use sunscreen!

Wakulla and Franklin County to Get More Artificial Reefs, Summer 2014

by on Jun.10, 2014, under Apalachicola, Carrabelle and St. George Island, Port St. Joe, Mexico Beach and St. Joseph Bay, Shell Point to Lanark, Ochlockonee Bay, St. Marks, Aucilla and Econfina

By: Charlene Cristobal
June 9, 2014

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Wakulla and Franklin county will be getting some new underwater digs next week. Thanks to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and the Organization for Artificial Reefs (OAR), limestone structures from Orange Beach, Alabama will be coming in to create new homes for fish and wildlife off the coast.

The structures, about 15 feet tall and weigh over 18 tons, are about to make a landing in the Saint George Sound. Artificial reefs have been around Florida since about 1964, and next week another will take position.

FWC Spokesperson Amanda Nalley says, “We have several artificial reefs across Florida. Out of the 35 counties that are on the coast, 34 of them have an artificial reef program. Artificial reefs are a great opportunity for both increased fishing opportunities and increased diving opportunities.”

The FWC and OAR will put 41 triangle shaped structures in the water to create new homes for fish and wildlife in the area. According to experts, the reefs will usually start seeing life move in as soon as 30 days after installation. But the FWC and OAR also say that the reefs won’t just attract the fish…

“Most of our reefs are an attractant for people that both want to fish on them, as well as dive on them,” Nalley says. “They definitely do help bring tourism dollars into the state, when people travel here and go offshore to go fish these reefs.”

According to OAR’s Chairman Alan Richardson, “Studies show that for every dollar in reef development fund that have been expended, roughly $130 or so come back to the community in the form of tourist dollars. We’re hoping that this will help the economies of Franklin and Wakulla county.”

The running total for this project is about $125,000.

This particular reef is important to a local family. The Camp family will be naming the reef after their son Dixon, who passed away five years ago.

The reef’s install is set for sometime the week of June 15, 2014.

NOAA’s latest mobile app provides free nautical charts for recreational boating–Public is invited to try beta version of ‘MyNOAACharts’

by on May.20, 2013, under Apalachicola, Carrabelle and St. George Island, Cedar Key, FLORIDA'S BIG BEND AND EMERALD COAST, Horseshoe Beach, Steinhatchee, Suwannee, Yankeetown and Waccasassa


NOAA’s latest mobile app provides free nautical charts for recreational boating
Public is invited to try beta version of ‘MyNOAACharts’

As recreational boaters gear up for a summer of fun on coastal waters and the Great Lakes, NOAA is testing MyNOAACharts, a new mobile application that allows users to download NOAA nautical charts and editions of the U.S. Coast Pilot. The app, which is only designed for Android tablets for the testing period, will be released today.

MyNOAACharts, which can be used on land and on the water, has GPS built-in capabilities that allow users find their positions on a NOAA nautical chart. They can zoom in any specific location with a touch of the finger, or zoom out for the big picture to plan their day of sailing. The Coast Pilot has “geotagged” some of the major locations–embedding geographical information, such as latitude and longitude, directly into the chart so it is readable in the app–and provides links to appropriate federal regulations. The app can be downloaded from the Google Play™ app store.

“Easy and workable access to nautical charts is important for boating safety,” said Rear Admiral Gerd Glang, director of NOAA Office of Coast Survey. “I’ve seen a popular t-shirt that has a ‘definition’ of a nautical chart splayed across the front: ‘chärt, n: a nautical map that shows you what you just hit.’ As creative as that is, a boating accident can kill. Keeping a nautical chart on hand – to avoid hitting something – can save lives.”

The beta test for MyNOAACharts will expire this Labor Day, Sept. 2. Coast Survey will then evaluate usage and user feedback to decide whether to release a finished version of the app.
The NOAA Charts for Florida’s Big Bend and Natural North Florida are:

11404 40,000 Intracoastal Waterway Carrabelle to Apalachicola Bay;Carrabelle River
11405 80,000 Apalachee Bay
11406 15,000 St.Marks River and approaches
11407 80,000 Horseshoe Point to Rock Islands;Horseshoe Beach
11408 80,000 Crystal River to Horseshoe Point;Suwannee River;Cedar Keys

“Expanding the app across a multitude of platforms, ensuring easy accessibility to over a thousand charts and nearly 5,000 pages of U.S. Coast Pilot, will take considerable resources,” Glang said. “We can do it if the boating community likes the app. We truly want the users to let us know if the app meets their needs.”

Boaters without an Android tablet should not despair. The Office of Coast Survey provides free BookletCharts, which are 8 ½” x 11″ PDF versions of NOAA nautical charts that can be downloaded and printed at home. The U.S. Coast Pilot is also available in a free PDF version. Those products, and information for purchasing other nautical products, are available at www.nauticalcharts.noaa.gov.

Important notice for commercial mariners: The mobile app MyNOAACharts and the BookletCharts do not fulfill chart carriage requirements for regulated commercial vessels under Titles 33 and 46 of the Code of Federal Regulations.

NOAA’s Office of Coast Survey, originally formed by President Thomas Jefferson in 1807, is the nation’s nautical chartmaker. Its hydrographers survey the coastal seafloor, respond to maritime emergencies and search for underwater dangers to navigation. Join Coast Survey on Twitter and check out the NOAA Coast Survey Blog for more in-depth coverage of surveying and charting.

NOAA’s mission is to understand and predict changes in the Earth’s environment, from the depths of the ocean to the surface of the sun, and to conserve and manage our coastal and marine resources. Join us on Twitter, Facebook and our other social media channels. Visit our news release archive.

by on Jan.16, 2013, under Apalachicola, Carrabelle and St. George Island

Capt. Tommy Holland called me this morning to tell me that 1. when I tried his phone yesterday, he was up a tree watching a deer so he couldn’t talk and 2. his anglers last Friday caught somewhere between 150 and 200 speckled trout between the river and the Bird. We’ve had such mild weather recently the Bayfishing has been fine. Can’t promise anything weather-wise and fish-wise this weekend but it’s probably going to be better than doing yard work! (For the latest fishing photos, check out Robinson Brothers Guide Service on facebook.)

The Houseboat “Reelaxation” on the Apalachicola River is the perfect Weekend Get-Away place. Waterfront living at it’s ultimate, it can sleep up to 4, with a King sized bed in the 1 bedroom and a queen sleeper sofa. Tie your boat up to the dock on the water side, clean & grill your fish on the deck, relax on the screened porch watching the sunrise view and the river traffic and enjoy the open living area with flat sceen TV & leather lounger. Reelaxation is available this coming holiday weekend and also for spring break rentals.

The Swan, located on Water Street in downtown Apalachicola features a view of the Apalachicola River while boasting capacity to sleep 6 in comfort. 2 Queen Beds and a sleeper sofa. It is tastefully decorated with upscale appliances and furniture with a private elevator and offstreet parking, located within 2-3 blocks of everything downtown. The Swan is open this coming weekend!

The Ibis is also a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo with a large “Sunset View” veranda. Comfortable and close to everything Apalachicola has to offer. As luck would have it, Ibis is empty this weekend as well.

MBARA Goes After Big Reefs in 2013

by on Jan.01, 2013, under Apalachicola, Carrabelle and St. George Island, Destin and Ft. Walton Beach, Navarre, Pensacola and Perdido, Port St. Joe, Mexico Beach and St. Joseph Bay

The Board of Directors of the Mexico Beach Artificial Reef Association are moving ahead full steam for 2013 to try and obtain fabulous new reefs like Coast Guard Cutters, bridge spans, and pre-fabricated concrete structures.   These will all be placed in currently permitted sites off the shores of Port St. Joe and Mexico Beach, Florida.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Grant

Twelve (12) new reefs are on the drawing board with a value of $80,000 which will be completed in early Spring.   The grant money will combine with matching funds raised by the MBARA from the Kingfish Tournament, sales of t-shirts, and donations.  The grant has been approved and is currently out for bids to come in on specifications of the project.

St. George Island Bridge Spans
We are working to raise three (3) bridge spans damaged by Tropical Storm Debby back in June of 2012.  We will raise them off of the floor of the bay, and then transport them to permitted sites in the Gulf of Mexico.  These spans are 55 feet long, 30 feet wide, and 7 feet tall.

Teaming with Bay and Gulf Counties
The MBARA is working diligently with officials from Bay and Gulf counties to try and build some significant artificial reefs using some of the NRDA (Natural Response Damage Assessment) and RESTORE ACT funds coming from monies paid out by BP due to the oil spill and its damaging effects on the environment and subsequent economic decline.  The funds in NRDA and RESTORE are different and will require different applications and priorities as established by local and state governmental agencies.

These plans include 4 Coast Guard Cutters, some underwater sculpture designs, and massive pre-fabricated concrete structures.

Artificial Reefs Have Million Dollar Impact
The economic impact will be substantial.  Building artificial reefs will bring millions to our local economy and thousands of jobs.

Who says so?  There are numerous studies that have been done in Florida that very vividly show how a local economy can benefit greatly from a well developed artificial reef program that will bring in thousands of visitors for fishing and diving.

In l998 Professors Bell, Bonn, and Leeworthy did a study on Northwest Florida to study the effect of the artificial reefs on the local economies.   They studied the five counties of Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, and Bay.   They found 414 million dollars in expenditures for fishing and diving related to artificial reefs.   That meant 8,136 jobs, 84 million in wages, with 359 million attributed to visitors.

In 2001 Johns, Leeworthy, Bell, and Bonn published a study of five counties if Southeast Florida including Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe.   What they found was that visitors spent l.7 billion dollars on fishing and diving related activities on artificial reefs which meant 27,000 jobs and 782 million in wages.

After the 2006 sinking of the USS Oriskany off of Pensacola,  over 4,200 dive trips were taken the first year.  In the two local counties of Escambia and Baldwin there were 3.6 million dollars in diving related expenditdures which meant 67 new full time jobs and l.4 million in local wages.

In 2006 the USS Vandenburg was sunk off of Key West.  This was found to produce 6.5 million in diving and fishing related expenditures, l05 full time jobs, and 3.2 million in income for local workers.

With so much money coming to our area in NRDA and RESTORE ACT funds, surely a part of that money can go to build large artificial reefs like 4 Coast Guard Cutters which will bring tourists to dive and fish which will translate to local wages, jobs, and and an increased tax base.  With millions of dollars coming soon to our area, it is essential that we use part of that money on projects that will produce jobs, boost our local economy, and grow our tax base.   Artificial reefs will do that.
