ROFFS™ FISHERIES OCEANOGRAPHIC ANALYSIS (LAT./LONG.)
FOR THE HUDSON CANYON TO BALTIMORE CANYON OFFSHORE
UPDATED ON THURS. 19 NOVEMBER FOR THURS. PM & FRIDAY FISHING ONLY
AS FORECASTED TWO MONTHS AGO: TUNA FOR THANKSGIVING
Based on a multiple factor analysis, the symbols (hot spot dots) mark the areas where the symbols (hot spot dots) mark the areas where bait concentrations are expected and where fishing action is expected to be better compared with other (non-marked) areas. These are not based on dock rumors or hearsay fishing reports. Fishing reports are stated as such. You should start fishing where you recognize other signs of good fishing conditions near these marked areas. It is very important to use your sea surface temperature (sst) gauge to locate the boundaries of the water masses, which are outlined. Rather than trying to find water based on the absolute temperature values shown on the map, search for the relative change in sst where the water mass boundaries occur. Arrows indicate the main current direction. Numbers inside of the dots indicate the number of consecutive days that we have seen favorable conditions in that location. Broken lines (small dotted lines) are water mass boundaries detected from the ocean color (chlorophyll + colorized dissolved organic material or “CDOM”) satellite data. Daytime sst are likely to warm 1°F-2°F.
GREAT CONDITIONS FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR!
The relatively large and very productive Gulf Stream eddy has moved southwestward and now is centered over the 1500 fathom depths of Lindenkohl Canyon Carteret and blue 68°F water extends from the Carteret Canyon to the Poor Mans Canyon. Excellent chances for fishing action occur over the Spencer Canyon to Lindenkohl Canyon where tuna (bigeye, albacore and bluefin), mahi, wahoo and white marlin is very likely to happen. Filaments from this eddy feature are pushing inshore over 30-100 fathom depths to the east of the Elephant Trunk and southwards.
Another, relatively smaller eddy feature has moved into the 1000 fathom Hudson Canyon suggesting a new source of fish to the Hudson Canyon area. The water temperatures are still within the preferred limits for bigeye tuna and bluefin tuna over many of the 20-40 fathom areas.
