Use Satellite Data to Catch More Fish

Satellite analyses of offshore waters simplify pinpointing major ocean-circulation features likely to hold fish and are shortcuts to fishing success.

ROFFS and SiriusXM Marine’s Fish Mapping are two major subscription-based companies providing highly detailed oceanographic analyses to anglers.

Sea-Surface Temps

Water-surface-temperature breaks indicate a change in the norm. This might be a variation of a half to a full degree off South Florida and the Keys; a few degrees or more off the mid-Atlantic and Northeast during April, May and June; and a 1- to 2-degree variation in the eddies in waters abutting the Gulf Stream. In the Gulf of Mexico, it could be a 1- to 5-degree difference in winter through spring, and a 1- to 2-degree variation off Southern California.
