Sea Surface Temperature Charts to Find More Fish

Pelagic species, including Tuna, Marlin, Wahoo, and Mahi, can be found in various ranges of water temperatures, gravitating to temperature breaks where bodies of cooler water meet warmer water which creates conditions of upwelling to start the marine food chain. Studying Sea Surface Temperatures (SST) near Delaware, Maryland and Virginia before heading offshore gives any serious angler the deciding upper hand.

FishTrack’s Cloudfree SST imagery - produced using data from collective satellite SST sources and aided by computer modeling to fill in areas blocked by cloud cover - offers the ultimate tool to help offshore anglers pinpoint and precisely locate desirable temperature breaks offshore. Concentrations of bait and gamefish will often occur where temperature and chlorophyll breaks are found in proximity to submarine contour changes around ledges, banks, canyons and seamounts.

With FishTrack’s ability to overlay corresponding altimetry (sea surface height anomalies), bathymetry, ocean current imagery, and local hot spots on top of any SST or Chlorophyll layer, successfully targeting fish offshore has never been easier.

Delaware, Maryland and Virginia Offshore Fishing Hot Spots

The Delaware, Maryland and Virginia offshore fishing grounds are defined by steep drops where the continental shelf dramatically slopes into canyon areas. Depths along the canyon flats can range from 400 to 600 feet, dipping into a sliding slope ranging from 1000 to 6000 feet along the 200 to 1000 fathom lines. Hot spots include the Baltimore Canyon, Wilmington Canyon, Norfolk Canyon, Poormans Canyon, Hot Dog, Hambone, 19th Fathom Lump, Washington Canyon. World class white marlin fishing can be found along the canyon edges, while tuna and mahi can be found closer along the 20 and 30 fathom lines. Blue marlin patrol the canyon waters.
