    you mean the things that swing in every day to turn my miserable florida sauna into a steam room. Oh and I could be very happy being drunk and fishing every day. I dont really drink but if thats what I gotta do to fish in the keys every day count me in!!
     
  2. a good downpour will drop the temps from 91 to 77 in a matter of minutes...i welcome the rain other than the fact your done for the day.

    Fact of Life

    South East Coast of Florida has a more favorable climate than inland Florida or the Gulf Coast where I live. For that reason the greater Miami area was populated first. Bahama Breezes in summer cool that coastal area while the same breeze warms the winter air from blowing over the warmer Gulf Stream.

    The Florida Key are in fact a MICRO CLIMATE with water on all sides. Water loses heat slower than air and it also absorbs heat much slower. Between the sea breeze which is always off shore in the Keys and the surrounding water, the Key have a perfect climate compared to the rest of Florida.

    ONE MORE TIME IF YOU CAN"T BE HAPPY IN THE FLORIDA KEYS, YOU CAN"T BE HAPPY.

    Yup, and those bahama breezes travel over much deeper atlantic ocean water than what we have in the gulf which gets over 90 degrees in the summer. The continental shelf runs extremly close to shore on the east coast of florida so the water is deep and a lot cooler than the gulf.

    Hey Z, I love it! I dont dive but have you ever done a dive at the Bayronto? I would guess that is one of the best closest dive spots to us.

    Hey Z, went back and watched more of the video. Saw some nice yellow tails, a gag grouper, really cool parrot fish (had one in my saltwater tank when I was younger) blue tang and some sort of wrasse. Didnt watch the whole video but that looked like a great day! Thats what life is all about.

    No I haven't, though Fantasea Scuba in Port Charlotte, where my family got certified, takes trips out there often. On the west coast I took one certification dive off Boca Grande and another off Bradenton Beach about a mile offshore there's about an 8' ledge that's pretty interesting. Problem up here is the visibility, about 8 to 20 feet verses 40 to 100 feet in the Keys.

    That particular video isn't mine, when we went out we took a charter with Abyss Dive center. The water the day we went was even clearer than is shown in that video.
