Lantana, Florida

Captain Fuge has been a fisherman for over 30 years off the coast of South Florida. He started his Lobster business many years ago and is now joined with his two sons, David and Bruce. Together, they now sell their catch of Fresh Florida Spiny Lobster and Florida Stone Crab Claws directly to the public at the Lobster Shack located in Lantana Florida at the docks at Murrelles Marine.

Fuge Hickman and his two sons, Bruce and David, work 6 days a week, pulling their traps to collect Florida Spiny Lobster every morning. No one has fresher lobster for sale in South Florida and at $7 per pound, it’s a real deal. You will need to call for pricing of the Stone Crab Claws.
Last year, after having a really tough market, Capt Fuge decided to sell directly to the public. Now, people just show up when he gets back to the docks to buy his catch – You can’t buy any fresher lobster and at such a low price.

Capt Fuge and his two sons are there almost every day during lobster season, except for Sundays, that runs from August through April. They leave almost every morning from the docks at 5 a.m., head out to sea, pull their traps and they get back to the docks around 2:00-2:30 p.m daily.   They unload the catch and sell what was caught. Then clean up the boats and get ready for the next day. It is hard work, but rewarding.

Capt Fuge also catches fish that turn up in his traps. Large Lion Fish, Trigger fish, Snapper, Hogfish and other eatable fish from time to time. On Saturdays, Capt Fuge is always cooking something, watching football and the day turns into a small party.

Capt. Fuge sells live and frozen lobster tails, but when I see him I buy the frozen, because he freezes the tails immediately and they have never tasted like they were ever frozen. I do not mind the 40 minute drive, because it is well worth the trip for the best tasting seafood from our South Florida waters.

On my recent trip to the Lobster Shack, Capt Fuge & his boys were carrying fresh frozen lobster tails, stone crab claws, and told me they will soon start selling Jumbo sized shrimp (when available). Call him be fore you head over – 561-756-2030  - it’s only about 50 min up 95 to Lantana Road from Ft Lauderdale – well worth the trip. He is there in the afternoon – I usually call first. Tell him you saw Lee’s article – it should make him smile.

Solar Swimming Pool Heaters by Broward Solar


Naturally, many of us might not go near the pool during the winter months, even if the pool is heated. The air temperature is just too cold for pleasant swimming much of the time. On the other hand, Florida’s typical winter weather pattern—alternating cold fronts and mild temperatures—means there can be periodic three to five day stretches of pleasant weather here even during the winter.

If you own a Pool – Solar Pool Heaters Make Good Financial Sense
“A solar pool heater could pay for itself quite quickly. One homeowner told us … that while living in Florida he spent about $200 a month heating his pool and Jacuzzi. He took the plunge and bought a solar pool heater … and after two years it paid for itself.”

A Solar Water Heating System can eliminate about one third of your annual electric bill.  Solar energy is predictable and socially responsible.  Solar Pool Heating Systems produce no pollution and are the most economical and environmentally friendly way to heat your swimming pool.



Broward Solar knows that not just one type of solar heating system is right for every situation.  We have years of hands on experience to know which technologies and systems are practical and which tend to be troublesome. So contact us today for a free proposal!

Miami Qigong Training

Learn Medical QiQong Healing with Lisa VanOstrand - Dr. Of Medical Qigong (China)


The entire program is 3 years if a student wish to attain the highest level of certification possible, Master's in Medical Qigong. There are 3 levels of certification from the International Institute of Medical Qigong that occur after successful completion of each year:
Visit this link for further information: http://www.3treasureshealing.com/qigong_certification.html


Qigong is a combination of two ideas: Qi" (pronounced chee), means air, breath of life, or vital energy that flows through all things in the universe and Gong" (pronounced gung, as in lung) means the skill of working with, or cultivating, self-discipline and achievement. Together, Qigong means the skill of cultivating vital energy, or the ability to work with the electromagnetic energy of the body. The body is enveloped by Qi or electromagnetic currents, affecting both internal and external organ functions. As Qi is the fundamental energy that sustains life, it is present in every cell of the body.

Medical Qigong Healing works to balance the physical and subtle bodies and create new imprints. Healing can initiate changes at all the different levels: physical, energetic, emotional/mental and spiritual. The experienced healer understands the relationship between the physical body and the subtle bodies as well as the interrelationship between elements, organs, meridians, chakras and disease patterns.

Medical Qigong, healing occurs through balancing qi or electromagnetic energy which surrounds and pervades all living creatures. Chinese medicine is a complete system of medicine that recognizes the root causes of symptoms or disease, and treats the client as a whole system. In the future, diseases will be seen and worked with before they reach the physical body. This is true preventive medicine and a return to the ancient Chinese way where the doctor was paid only when the client was well.

When disease is present, major changes are usually required at all levels: physical, energetic, emotional/mental and spiritual. Each of these levels, other than the physical, can be considered as a subtle body or field that surrounds and inner penetrates the physical body. These subtle bodies and their effects have been duly noted by Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. Chinese Medicine considers man to be a bridge between heaven and earth. As such, for each one of us to reach our full potential requires us to be at ease and free-flowing at all of these levels. Medical Qigong is an excellent energetic healing modality regardless of whether you are a client or a practitioner.
