Congratulations! ROFFS™ clients John Bayliss, Mike Atkinson, Brad Adam & crew take home 1st place white marlin in last week’s 2014 White Marlin Open (See Photo Above.)
Successful tournament fishing takes organization, planning, making the right decisions, and having good luck. ROFFS™ will help your planning and execution of the fishing strategy that will increase your chances for hooking that big fish. At the very least our analyses allows you to have the optimum strategy for locating tournament quality fish as the oceanographic conditions change and to help select your fishing days. As our recent winners at the Ocean City White Marlin Open were successful using the ROFFS™ fishing forecasting analyses, we know we will help put you on the fish. You do not have to use us to catch fish and win, but our clients have won 134 categories in the last 11 Mid-Atlantic 500 tournaments and this does not include the daily winners and other special money categories. We believe that our information provides the extra margin that helps you catch more fish. During last week’s Ocean City White Marlin Open our clients won eight major categories including the 1st Place White Marlin and 1st Place Top Angler. Already in 2014 our clients have won 256 major categories in 56 tournament and one state record (Texas blue marlin – 972.7 lbs.). Over the last 23 years and this year our clients have won 6591 major tournament categories. ROFFS™ would like to help you have a successful tournament by using our Fishing Oceanographic Analyses every day.
We are studying the motion of the water from the Atlantis Canyon to Cape Hatteras. We are particularly watching the conditions from the Hudson Canyon to the Norfolk Canyon, especially between the Washington Canyon and the Wilmington Canyon where the blue water from the Gulf Stream eddy is controlling where the trolling fishing action is happening now.

New NOAA reports sum up the state of science on entanglement and ingestion.
The NOAA Marine Debris Program, in partnership with the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, published reports today that assess the current state of science on two marine debris impacts: ingestion and entanglement.
The reports examine existing scientific literature to determine what we know about these impacts, as well as gaps in knowledge and how they may be addressed.
