Clearly Defined

A clearly defined temperature break is a welcome sight for those who troll the offshore waters. The intersection between converging currents is the perfect atmosphere to find life at sea.

Warm water eddies spin off the Gulf Stream currents into the cooler surrounding water, causing variations in temperature, current and water color. Along these current edges Sargassum and other ocean debris pile up and provide cover for the many forms of life that make their home in the ocean waters. This is where the voracious Mahi-Mahi feed. Schools of fish ranging in sizes from bailer, slinger and gaffer rely upon miles and miles of weed line to sustain their explosive growth.

Find a clearly defined temperature break, and most likely you’ll find the dolphinfish that will have your anglers screaming for more. Who knows, you might even see a citation bull dolphin crash your baits.

 

Genesis 2:20-24 (ESV)

The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him. So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. Then the man said,

“This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.”

Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

 

April 28, 2015 will forever be recorded in history as the day the Supreme Court of the United States of America heard arguments for and against same sex marriage. The issue at hand is whether or not the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution requires a state to license marriage between two people of the same sex. Years of political wrestling, legislative declaration, judicial review and state constitutional amendments have all boiled down to a single decision; a decision in the hands of 9 appointed Supreme Court Justices.

What’s at stake? The federal government’s definition of marriage.

Who has the right to define marriage? That right belongs solely to the One who established it.

Genesis 1 is the record of God’s work in creation. The second chapter is the story of man, his responsibility to tend the garden and the details of the woman who would complete him. It’s here in verse 24 that we find the biblical definition of marriage. One man and one woman, who leave their families and hold fast to one another in a covenant relationship before God, becoming one flesh as they are united physically and spiritually with one another. Marriage defined.

God established marriage and the subsequent family as the core building blocks for all of society. Marriage existed before government; therefore government will never be able to define genuine marriage.

Brothers, it’s time for us to pray for our country, our leaders and the decisions they will make about marriage in the coming months. May God exalt Himself and reveal to the hearts of our Justices His perfect truth found in the Scriptures.

As for you and I, the definition of biblical marriage MUST be found in our own homes. God gave us the greatest example of how we are to love our wives, as Christ sacrificially loved the church. (Eph 5:25) If our desire is for the world around us to understand what genuine marriage looks like –it’s going to have to start with what takes place in our homes. Thankfully, God has given us a clear definition.

Tip:

Working the temperature breaks, current edges and weed lines can be a productive method of fishing. It’s not uncommon to discover a limit of bailers or slingers under a single piece of debris. Keep an eye out for pallets or container materials, making sure you bring you baits in close proximity. Thankfully this is not a fishery that requires you to run over top the fish. Hungry dolphin will come out of their ambush spots and attack your baits from significant distances. While the smaller dolphin like to hang out under the weeds, don’t hesitate to work off the weed lines as this is typically where the larger bulls roam the open ocean.
