    Summertime and the livin is easy?  Our Paradise is surrounded by Red Tide, or is it Piiney Point?  

    Just when trout came back on the keeper list…. we have dead fish in Sarasota Bay.  Personally, I have seen only a few small floaters along our seawall but have heard reports Mount Vernon area was affected last week.   Time will tell….

    Do you have access to YouTube?  I would like to recommend some of my favorite channels go search and watch when it’s hot and or raining out.

    THE FWC has spoken.  The Rules are somewhat confusing, and the dividing line is State Road 64 including Palma Sola Bay.  But here in Paradise Bay Sarasota Bay our Bay is a KEEP Trout zone!

    Slot is 15”-19”, you can keep 3 fish as an angler fishing alone, with one fish over 19”.  Trout Recipes anyone?

    Normal FWC Regulations will resume North of State Road 64 for Snook and Redfish not including Palma Sola Bay.  Go to myFWC.com to read the full information.  

    Keeping on the lookout for Red Tide and Piney Point discharges but so far, we are OK.  

    A friendly reminder to all regarding the signs at the ramp not to Power Load Boats on trailers.  The ramp has been damaged and to prevent further deterioration please gently load your boats.

    Look forward to Full Fishing Contests Starting November 1, 2021.

    Sunrise and wind this morning here in Paradise, Good Morning Everyone!  As we all transition to Summer many of you have fled North and we wish you a safe and healthy Summer Season wherever you are.  

    I have finally been out fishing a few times in the last week or so.  Trout were on fire last week but this week I only caught grass. Recipes for seaweed anyone?  Fighting wind and low water levels were tough this week.

    There is a “rumor” that Redfish are now legal to catch and fillet.  FWC website as of 4/22/2021 list season closed for Reds, Trout and Snook until their decision 5/30/2021.  Paradisebay.info has a link to the FWC website to check which species are in Season.  Check it out before you listen to rumor and possibly keep out of season fish.

    Greetings from the Paradise Bay Dockmaster

    dockmasterTo those of you I have not met yet, let me introduce myself. My name is Scotty Yates, I am a full-time resident of Paradise Bay Estates for over six years. I am honored to have been asked to be the Dockmaster for Paradise Bay Estates.

    We are making great strides in improving the quality of boating in Paradise Bay Estates, especially the security of docks, boat storage lot & the “Million Dollar Lot.”

    We have new security cameras, a new fence surrounding the perimeter of the boat yard & new gates
    The “Million Dollar Lot” now has a fence that defines Paradise Bay Property and most importantly we now have a new professional Security Patrol Team.

    Shareholders, Renters & Guests are required to place Paradise Bay stickers or Day Passes on vehicles, boat trailers & boats. With the proper Paradise Bay stickers our new Security Team can control unauthorized & unidentified vehicles parked on park property which will be towed at owner’s expense.

    As the boats & trailers are getting bigger and bigger, I would like to remind everyone that we have a size limit for boats and trailers. Paradise Bay Docks can only accommodate maximum 23 ft length & 8.5 ft width boats.

    At the time of this letter we have over 70 people on the dock waitlist. When signing up for the docklist you must read the Dock Rules & Regulations to make sure you qualify.  Shareholders that have docks are required to use the docks under our Rules & Regulations.

    Paradise Bay Estates quick list of the Dock Rules & Regulations.

    1. Must meet Paradise Bay resident requirements:
    2. Shareholders must reside minimum 3 months in the calendar year. Sarasota Bay RV Renters must reside minimum 5 months in the calendar year
    3. Must be 55+
    4. Boat must be registered /titled in shareholders / renters name
    5. Maximum length of boat 23 ft
    6. Maximum width of boat 8.5 ft
    7. Docks are various sizes, slips will be assigned according to boat size at the Dock Masters discretion
    8. Approximate Dock wait times for 12-19 ft boats 2 years. For 20-23 ft boats 2-3 years
    9. When a boat slip is issued you will have 7 days for payment to the Paradise Bay office and 30 days to put a boat in the dock and present boat registration/ title to the Paradise Bay office and Dock Master
    10. Issue of dock slip does not guarantee a space in the boat storage lot

    *Complete detailed Rules & Regulations are available at the Paradise Bay Estates Office.

    Thank you, and looking forward to meeting all the boaters in the near future.
