11.  reebops rule #5  is a really good point...respect the right of the sheller, jogger or other people on the beach. They have equal right to the sand unless LXR claims their right to same.  Which they have, despite the fact we contributed to the refurbishment.
 
Consistent with the above, when casting on the beach or on the east side platforms or the T-Dock be very conscious of what is behind you when casting.  The last thing you want to do is hook a little girl on vacation.  It will ruin her vacation and yours.

12. This reminds me that more often than not the fisherman is hooked not the by-passer.  So this is not a fisherman's rule of ethics but, it is a "must know" for all fisherman. Ever been hooked? I have, twice.
 
The procedure is this,  If hooked with a barbless hook remove the hook by applying pressure to the underside of the hook and remove it the way the hook entered your skin.  If a barbed hook attempt the same maneuver.  If that does not work and it probably won't.  1. cut the hook off with the cutting end of your fishing pliers and pass it through your skin and remove it on the other side of your flesh.  Or 2. Press really hard opposite the under side of the hooks bard, opening enough flesh to let the hook and the barb exit the wound the way it entered.  Emergency room surgeons prefer this procedure usually using a local anesthetic.  Guts ball on the beach! 
 
Best advice, go to the emergency room.

13.  Don't forget my post regarding buying stone crab claws at Jensen's. They are to die for.  Moreover, I can send you Joe's Stone Crab Claws Mustard Sauce recipe (Miami South Beach) for a small amenity fee.

RickZ,  Jensen's does not do or serve stone crab claws but, an old, somewhat toothless fisherman docks at Jensen's wharf and he is the daily source of fresh stone crabs for local restaurants.  Call one of the Jensen brothers as to when he may be docking.  He will sell you a half or a full pound of stone crab claws at his sub-wholesale cash price.  Best deal on the islands. The season ends in late May, when it begins I don't know.
 
Joe's stone crab claw mustered source recipe will be posted as soon as I can figure out how to do it.  It is to die for!

14.  Joe's Mustard Sauce (Miami Beach Florida)
 
At Joe's the stone crabs are served cold, already cracked. They come with small metal cups of mustard sauce and a cup of melted butter.  This is the mustard sauce recipe for which Joe's is famous.
 
Makes about 1-cup:
      1-Tablespoon Coleman's dry mustard, or more to taste   
      1-cup mayonnaise
      2-teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
      1-teaspoon A-1 sauce
      2-tablespoons heavy cream and milk
      Salt to taste

Place the mustard in a mixing bowl or the bowl of an electric mixer.  Add the mayonnaise and beat for a minute.  Add the Worcestershire, A-1, cream, and a pinch of salt and beat until the mixture is well blended and creamy.  If you want a little more mustardy bite, whisk in about 1/2 teaspoon more dry mustard until well blended. Chill the sauce, and cover, until served.

15.When a fellow fisherman is snagged, whether on the east side platforms or the SW side rocks give the person room and time to release his hook before moving in on his fishing spot.  Only fair.
 
If you are the snaggie, don't spend too much time trying to free your hook.  Use the golfers rule to look for a lost ball...5-minutes, no more.  Cut and run!

16.  OK, this is not an ethical fishing principle, but something you must know to beat a big snook.  If you hook a big snook, you'll know, and if the snook takes your line under or around a rock or underwater obstacle, DO NOT PULL or attempt to reel in. That is what the snook wants you to do because that will usually break your line or release your knot.
 
Do this instead, it almost always works.  Release all pressure on the line.  The snook will think he won and that either the line or knot was broken and swim away.  Now, the big snook is yours!  You may have to sit/stand there for three to five minutes before the snook will swim away...be patient.  Mr. snook knows!

17.  When using your casting net to catch bait fish be careful to not do this close to where people are fishing.  The underwater noise will scare away all fish within 100 yards.

18.   I am an avid fly fisherman and can not help but notice more fisherman on the beach are fly fishing.  They are usually a superior breed, wearing fishing uniforms made by Orvis along with $500 in elite equipment etc. but frequently violate an important fishing ethic.  They frequently refuse to recognize that they are not fishing a quiet stream in total solitude but are fishing a beach with shellers, joggers, children and other fisherman behind them. Their back casts can be more than 60 feet behind them and many are not sensitive to the risk that imposes to others.  Snook fisherman use spinning reels and rods and their back cast is seldom more then 6-10 feet based upon the length of their rod and they are usually in water about 20 feet off shore.

FYI, for anyone heading down soon, I just checked with Jensens' and Jimmy said the Stone Crab Claws have slowed to a trickle, with the guy trying every 2 weeks or so, so it looks like I'll have to try for them another time. Maybe we'll have better luck when we go down in Dec or Jan.

Too bad.  Suggest you try Baileys or Jerry's on the way in for your stone crab claws.
