    It's a sub, like the Hunt for Red October. They will yell at you if you're out there. It came up right next to me once and scared the crap out of us- it was so huge and we thought we were under attack!

    I was planning on launching from Dania tomorrow. Hopefully it won't be there.

    No question about it,we need legislation or other directive assuring the Sub maneuvers do not adversely affect the Plastic Navy.
    Hunters are present yet relatively uncommon in Florida :wink

    How did you find out about the submarines activity? Is there a website ?

    No we went to the beach launched in some sloppy conditions and saw the sub doing its back n forth routine. We fished shallow for a little and headed in. Once back on the the Dania beach employees said they will be there all weekend. They do it annually.

    They do it more than once a year. I remember seeing you out there a while back and we ended up paddling to the inlet to go out deep. It was there for 2-3 weeks I think.

    They pick certain times like Labor Day weekend on purpose so the sailors can't get in trouble or get DUIs etc. Every sub in San Diego was ordered to go to sea for the Super Bowl specifically so that no one could get a DUI. Memorial day too... Screw those guys

    Don't try it. I've been escorted back to a "safe distance" by SeaTow (who assist Navy and Coast Guard during these operations). it ruins your day of fishing, trust me.

    Here is the resource to watch during these times of year:
    http://www.navcen.uscg.gov/?pageName=lnmMain
    We are District 7, then look for the most recent notification.
    Apparently their Port Everglades exercises will be running from Aug 28th til Sept 7th. They run a few miles south of PE, 3/4nm from shore to 4nm from shore, which means squarely in Dania Beach fishing area

    I know, it sucks right? Try your luck in Pompano or head inshore now that Snook season is open!
