Do you know anyone with a photographic memory - those amazing annoying people who see something once and thereafter retain a flawless picture of it in mind?

True photographic memory may not exist. One test is to ask people to read lines of verse and then recite the words in reverse order, which they should do quickly if just “reading” the words backwards from a picture in their mind (brainfacts.org). So far, no one has managed. For most of us, memories are made of the most striking elements while the details get lost.

It’s mid-season for kingfish on our coast and so far we’ve yet to see a real big push of fish. There is, however, some nice fish being caught in our area.

The best locations thus far have been around the Skyway Bridge and the shipping channel. This area seems to be holding the most bait, so naturally that is were the kingfish will be. Until we get that huge influx of threadfins off the beach we won’t see the schools of Spanish mackerel and kingfish in our near-shore waters.

Like many invasive species, the red lionfish is nice to look at, reproduces prolifically, has few natural predators and preys on native species.

A few examples of similar invasive marine activity are witnessed in the Cuban tree frog, Asian swamp eel, and suckermouth catfish. These aquatic animals were introduced to Florida either intentionally or by accident, and have since established themselves by displacing native species.

The dolphin spring remains un-sprung. Three recent events at sea whisper of its coming. But it is late.

The dolphin spring is marked by a return of dolphins to the Intracoastal Waterway estuary from their winter quarters. Their winter quarters are presumably the Gulf of Mexico. But no one really knows where our local dolphins go during the cold months, which, when you think about it, is strange.

Cold fronts are nothing new to April; it’s known for being a windy month. But I can’t remember a year when each passing front brought two days of gale force winds.

Surely by Thursday we will be looking at winds under 10 mph, but by then the damage will be done. By damage I mean dirty water and displaced bait and the fish that pursue them. Realistically it will take till Saturday for the water to clean up enough for the bait to gather. Patterns will need to re-establish and with improving tides later into the weekend we should see a couple of excellent fishing days before the next cold front comes through.
