A dolphin fishing video demonstrates how to catch a large school of fish using menhaden oil, chumming, and chunking. These techniques trigger feeding behavior, keep dolphins happy, and keep the food flowing. It's crucial to avoid overcrowding and maintain a steady supply of food to avoid losing the school.

Description / Review / Instructor

If you're dolphin fishing on a weedline, around floating debris, or under birds and you hook your first fish, you might wonder: How do you attract and keep the school that follows the first dolphin behind your boat?

Having a firm understanding of how to catch dolphin using menhaden oil, a chum bag, and chunks can be the difference between going home empty-handed or as a champion.


The Importance of Preparation

This might be your only chance of the day to catch a load of dolphin. Being prepared is crucial. There's a science to this process, and the principles shared in the In The Spread dolphin fishing video will ensure you have meals for weeks. To catch lots of dolphins, you need a solid plan.

The Role of Chunks, Chum, and Oil

  • Oil: It marks your spot and slicks out the water, making it easier to spot fish. Its strong odor triggers feeding behavior. Menhaden oil should be the first thing you introduce to the water after hooking the initial dolphin.
  • Chum Bag: Why use it? Chum is highly effective for snapper, mackerel, and reef fishing. It provides a steady food source in the water, keeping the dorado engaged.
  • Chunks: This is the key. Start by tossing a few chunk baits, wait for thirty seconds, and then throw a couple more. Avoid overfeeding. Prepare your chunks in advance; there's no time to cut bait once the fish approach your boat. Remember, less is more. The goal is to control how the fish linger behind your boat.

Time to Fish

With the fish attracted to your boat and happily feeding, it's time to consider dropping another line in the water. But don't get too excited. Focus on maintaining the steady food supply and then systematically catch fish after fish. If you mess up the feeding, the dolphin will leave. So, open your grocery store and get to work.
