Jewels of the Caribbean Sea

Tour the depths of the Caribbean where, in waters famed for hidden treasures, another kind of wealth lies in abundance. From the coral reefs, across the plains, and through the grasses, stunning underwater photography allows you to get close up to creatures rare and fantastic. National Geographic cameras capture a baby sperm whale romping near the surface, a manatee settling down to sleep, and dolphins playing on the sandy plains. Observe predators such as the Caribbean reef shark and the barracuda hunting the weak and unwary. And witness an array of brightly colored, exotic creatures - nature's own living JEWELS OF THE CARIBBEAN SEA.

National Geographic's hour-long Jewels of the Caribbean Sea is actually much more than a showcase of Mother Nature's collection of precious art treasures. It is also a glimpse into the tireless struggle for life that makes the ocean depths shimmer and glitter so spectacularly. As wondrously beautiful as they may be, coral reefs are also living factories, vast and nearly timeless. To pass through an undulating wall of thimble jellies and descend a few hundred feet down these fantastically colored cities of the sea is to descend through history. Here at the bottom, amidst both microscopic bacteria and mammoth manta rays, life is hard won. While vibrantly colored Caribbean reef squid participate in a ritualistic visual combat for mating rights, the battles of others aren't as aesthetically pleasing. Only the most wary survive. This is not to say, of course, that life here is entirely an every-man-(or fish)-for-himself affair. See for yourself the bizarre relationship between the pearl fish and the sea cucumber. Or, for a slightly less unmentionable example, take the Goby and the black grouper. What's a nutritious lunch for the tiny fish proves to also be some pleasant attention to the larger one's hygiene. Ultimately though, as above, so below. The Caribbean may be more exotic in many aspects, but where the beauty ultimately lies is in the will to live.

Measure Saltwater Fish

Most finfish size limit regulations of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) use either Fork Length or Total Length.

These measurement methods provide a consistent, well defined measurement technique. These methods encourage angler compliance with fishery management regulations.

Total Length Measurement

Total Length is now measured from the most forward point of the head, with the mouth closed, to the farthest tip of the tail with the tail compressed or squeezed, while the fish is lying on its side.

Total Length Species Include:

Snapper Family

Grouper Family

Red Drum

Black Drum

Several ornamentals

Spotted Seatrout
(Angelfish, etc.)


Fork Length Measurement

Fork Length Species Include:


King Mackerel

Spanish Mackerel



Mullet African Pompano
Gray Triggerfish

Lower Jaw Fork Length Measurement (Billfishes)

Lower Jaw Fork Length Species Include:

· Sailfish

· Blue Marlin

· White Marlin

How to Measure Crab and Spiny Lobster

Crab Measurement

Stone Crab claws must measure at least 2 3/4-inches in length measured by a straight line from the elbow to the tip of the lower immovable finger. The forearm (propodus) shall be deemed to be the largest section of the claw assembly that has both a moveable and immovable finger and is located farthest from the body of the crab.

Spiny Lobster Measurement

Spiny Lobster must have a minimum carapace length of greater than 3-inches and the measurement must take place in the water. The carapace is measured beginning at the forward edge between the rostral horns, excluding and soft tissue, and proceeding along the middle to the rear edge of the carapace.

Marlin Trolling

Unlike other marlin, blacks live only in the Pacific. They are considered by most marine biologists to be a continental shelf species – meaning that they tend to remain near landmasses and are unlikely to be found in open waters. Perhaps that characteristic contributes to the black marlin’s more deliberate nature. Black marlin are more likely to remain in a specific area for longer periods of time, move slower than a blue or a striper, and feed in a more methodical, systematic way. Like all marlin, they are opportunistic feeders but differ from the others in that they are known to consume loads of reef fish. Hunting areas of structure for grouper, snapper and other reef fish, the black develops more of a territorial personality. Blacks caught and released in one area are often caught again in the same spot weeks later.

Marlin trolling relies on a pattern of lures to maximise strikes. Many marlin seem to be drawn like a magnet to a particular lure and are rarely scared of the boat.

For marlin, four or five lures in the pattern is enough as things can be very difficult if a jumping fish takes the lure close to the boat and then weaves its way out through the other outfits.
When marlin trolling, a teaser, bird or similar device that adds action in amongst the lures can help draw extra strikes. From my experience, it is hard to beat a teaser beating and flashing just in front of the first big fish lure.

How the lures are arranged is a matter of preference and a bit of experience, however the pattern shown here works very well.

Some anglers like to work the lures in matched pairs down each side of the boat while others like to have a long side and short side. With a short corner rod matched with a short lure in the outrigger and a long corner rod matched by a long line on the rigger.

The fifth lure is usually set down the middle of the pattern and behind the other lures with the rod in the rocket launcher, this is known as the ’shotgun’ lure.

Best results on marlin have come from using a five lure pattern with two short lures run from the stern corners, (about 25 metres or 75 feet) two outrigger lures set at around 50 metres (150 feet) and the fifth lure run down the centre of the wake but kept slightly shorter than the outrigger lures.

The short lures and the outrigger lures are set as matched pairs.
The advantage of this pattern is that it is almost tangle free and allows for manoeuvring around fish attractors, schools of bait, islands or whatever without fuss.

All lures are set on top of the wake rolls behind the boat. The wake roll optically enhances the appearance and the movement of the lure to any fish swimming below. The effect is like putting something in the centre of a glass lens. Lures can be set in the second, third and so on wake rolls.

Even though it looks close many fish are caught in the second or third wake roll close to the boat, so don’t think all the lures need to be way back, they don’t.

Lure patterns are set very deliberately and attention should be paid to lure placement. Some lures simply work and catch better in particular spots in the pattern. Most of this is only discovered by experience and strike rates.

Hook, Line and Sinker Basics

Some of the basics that we cover on this site include:

*General fishing equipment topics like hook sizes and how to tie fishing line knots (On this page)
*General information on what season and time of day to fish (When to Fish link or button to the left)
*How to’s (i.e. techniques and riggings) and where to fish for specific fish (Specific fish links on the left side menu)

The designation system used in fish hook sizing is as follows:

* Large hooks increase in size as the number increases (i.e. 1/0, 2/0, 3/0, etc.)
* Small hooks decrease in size as the number increases (i.e. 1, 2, 3, etc.)

Here’s a rough guide to which hooks to use for which type of fish:

Ever wonder how to tie those knots? One of the best knots overall is known as the “clinch knot”. The following diagrams help illustrate how to tie this basic knot (which can be used to tie hooks to leaders, swivels to lines, etc.):

Clinch Knot (Version 1)

Clinch Knot (Version 2)

Technique Install Bait

Technique install bait so important to eye-catching fish. This is because way arrange and put bait also taken into account so faster victim eat bait.

Gather bait total that many especially worm to bait a hook among technique that can be used when water fishing bargain to woo river occupier or lake. Worm is among most effective bait to most fish freshwater. It may be used a or several tail simultaneously as pictures following diagram.
