It's time to go Dolphin fishing. I have always been one to subscribe to a contrarian view in every aspect of my life. Whether it was musically in my younger days in punk bands, investing in the stock market or fishing inshore or offshore, the fact is that it pays to go against the grain and you'll learn more from this method than you ever will swimming with the current. This article with highlight those against the current methods and techniques. I gotta say that the parallels between the stock market and fishing are amazing, they are all about doing your due dilagence...it's all about doing your homework to make sure that you are there before everyone else catches on and by the time you hear everyone talking about it and piling on you are planning your exit and ready to move on. That's exactly what's going on right now offshore as I write this article. Everywhere you look, every magazine you read, every website and fishing report you read talks about the Tuna bite, and that's fine, they are a great fish to target but while everyone has that tunnel vision that leaves a wonderful untapped Dolphin bite waiting for......me. And it's not just Dolphin but Albies, Skippjack, Spanish Macks and yes a few football Tuna to boot. This process is simple and this is the way I approach it step by step......
Every single day whether I am going to run or not I go through my weather check list to get a pace on the low pressure systems, the amount of time it takes for the weather to travel across the country, telling me when it will arrive in our territory. I will then study the marine forecasts both inshore as well as offshore (Hudson canyon - Baltimore canyon) no matter how far I plan to run, because all swells come from offshore and move west and will eventually be inshore.
