Good Fishing Action Awaits Offshore – ROFFS™ Hudson to Hydrographer Canyon Offshore Analysis – 05 MAY 2014

We were able to see this area clearly today to increase your chances for mainly tuna (bluefin, bigeye and yellowfin tuna), sharks and swordfish action. Overall, there is a large clockwise rotation eddy east of Hudson Canyon containing 65.5°F to 67.1°F to 69.0°F water and also pulling this bluer mixed Gulf Stream water into the 1000 fathom ledges east of Toms Canyon and into the 500-1000 fathom ledges of Hudson Canyon as we expect the conditions to improve for fishing action as this eddy pushes warmer 65.0°F to 67.0°F to 69.0°F water farther into Hudson Canyon to Toms Canyon later this week. There is a clockwise rotating eddy centered over Block Canyon area pulling blended blue 65°F to 67°F water farther north of Block Canyon into the Fish Tails for favorable fishing action. Farther east there is 65°F-67°F- 69°F blue-green to blended blue water in the Atlantis Canyons and as far inshore as 50-60 fathoms in places north of the Atlantis Canyons. Bottom line is once there is a window of a day or two of good weather there are several favorable options for good fishing action offshore for tuna and you will want to be ready and have your boat in the water ready to go offshore.
