A few sailfish have been chasing flying fish relatively early in the season. Saturday or Sunday’s forecast of north winds may contribute to the bite a little, and a good bet at getting them to eat would be kite fishing with a hearty bait like goggle-eyes or blue runners in 200-400’ of water. Small dolphin have been pretty consistent offshore, as well as football-sized blackfin tuna. Target both by trolling with small-skirted bonita strips at depths of 120-500’.

Kingfish and large mutton snapper have been eating sardines near 120 – 200’, and yellowtail snapper has been showing up in strong numbers.

Inshore, the mullet run is still hot, and snook, jacks, tarpon, ladyfish, and redfish aren’t far behind

Halloween in Hobe Sound will require you running for your life (slightly exaggerated). Zombies have been spotted! Are you up to this years annual Halloween “You Can Run but Not Hide” Race at the Pine School’s campus?  This a great family friendly event, so bring the young and the young at heart.

Beware on October 19th, 2018, as the zombies will be running amongst us.  A zombie is a corpse that has been turned into a creature having a crusade but not a rational thought and very hungry. It's best to come out dressed in a Halloween costume or zombie outfit. To endure the race, you must traverse a 5K course with off-road and street terrain. The run is easy. It's avoiding the zombies that can get a bit thorny, specifically they're after your flags.

Later to become known as the Florida East Coast Railway, Henry Flagler's railroad is one of the most well-known aspects of South Florida history. Population growth eventually led to an FEC railroad depot built in 1984 on the south shore of Jupiter's Loxahatchee River. In 1915 a new FEC passenger and freight depot was opened in Jupiter where Johnston Park is today.  Passengers weren’t the only riders. Fruits and plants were shipped on the trains, as was the daily mail. Live animals were shipped to northern zoos by Trapper Nelson, who set up a homestead-turned-zoo on the shore of the Loxahatchee River in the 1940s.

A train depot is a small railway station between the principal stations or a station where the train stops.  The older depot was moved a
