      El Nino year in 1973 goes to La Nina year in 1974--PDO negative.

      El Nino to La Nina--no surprise there as La Nina is more associated
      with hurricanes and tornadoes.

      QBO decelerated about April to May of 1974 . . . but it isn't
      anything that special.

      SOI seems like April was an out liner somewhat, but again, nothing
      special.

      And now for the punch line--a biological 'short' to the answer:

      January - June 1974:
      Red Tide first reported in Fort Myers area and then moves north to
      Tampa Bay. Tourists resort to wearing gas masks on the beaches to
      beat the stench; loss to the tourist industry is estimated at over
      $15 million. City workers stretch nets across small bayous in St.
      Petersburg to keep out dead fish and ducks.

      Willis said 1974 was the last time red tide moved off Gulf beaches
      and into the Bay.
