Born in Havana, Cuba in 1958, Jose Wejebe grew up in a politically tumultuous time. Fidel Castro leading the Cuban revolution had just seized power and was imposing communist ways on the country. The new government then began taking land, money and property from some of the families with claims that the property now belongs to the "revolution". His father was imprisoned for speaking out against the Castro regime. Jose, his mother and sister fled to the Swedish embassy for safety and stayed there until papers were set for asylumin the US. After turning over most everything they owned to the Cuban government including all their land in Cuba, Jose's father and grandfather were released from prison. Completely broke and destitute, the family escaped.
The beginning years in America were not easy for Wejebe family. With a total of 10 family members living in a two-bedroom house and barely enough money to get by, life was challenging during Jose's younger years. However, growing up in Miami, Florida, the tropical locale was a integral turning point for the beginning of Jose's marine based career and life. At age eight, his father first took him out on the waters of Biscayne Bay and taught him to fish. His mother purchased him a mask and fins. What he saw underwater changed his life and perspective on the world forever. There was a whole new world for him to discover and since then, he never stopped exploring.

(June 7, 2013) Anglers will head offshore in search of mako and thresher sharks and bluefish during the 17th annual Mako Mania Shark Tournament, which starts today, Friday, and concludes Sunday.
The Mako Mania event, presented by Bahia Marina Tournaments, is the first major offshore fishing tournament of the season.
It was a cold winter and cool spring in Ocean City and anglers are ready for warm weather and the 2013 tournament fishing season to get under way.
The first mako of the season, a 138-pounder, was caught on May 10 by Wayne Mull aboard the Restless Lady. A number of makos have been boated since.
“Mako fishing has been pretty good,” Mako Mania co-organizer Earl Conley said last week. “I hear there’s lots of bluefish. If there’s lots of bait, there will be lots of [makos].”
