Dolphin Fishing by Jake Worthington This is the time of the year when the fishermen are headed to the Gulf Stream in search of schools of Dolphin. Dolphin are plentiful off the Outer Banks Coast from May to October. They are fun to catch and usually travel in schools, so when you hook one, chances are you will catch even more. Schools of Dolphin often assemble underneath objects in the water that float like wood. However most are present under patches of sargassum. Sargassum is a large brown seaweed that floats on the surface of the ocean water and will form into large patches with the aid of tidal currents. Under these patches of sagassum small baitfish and other sea life gathers and forms a perfect area environment for fish to gather and feed. While Dolphin can live up to five years they rarely live past the age of four. Dolphins are also one of the fastest growing fish in the ocean and are sexually mature at four to five months old. Dolphin can spawn several times a year and egg releases can produce over a 100,000 eggs per female. While there is no shortage of Dolphin in the offshore water we want to make sure we are being good stewards of the fishery. One way that you as a fisherman can help to this is to join the efforts of the Dolphin Research Project. The Dolphinfish Research Program conducted by South Carolina Department of Natural Resources that tracks Dolphin migration and travel behaviors. The program is also sponsored by corporate partners like Grady White Boats, Star Rods, and Big Rock Sports. The program tries to find Charter Boat Captains and other fisherman who will agree to volunteer to tag and release Dolphin while out in the water. Getting into the program is easy all you need to do is email the program director Don Hammond at or call him at (843) 795-7524. Also check out their website at . After you make contact you will be sent a tagger, some tags, and index cars to fill out and document your tag. Make sure that you read the section on the website on “How to Tag”. It is important that you several wet towels on hand to grip the fish and a measuring stick to make a fork measurement of the fish. Estimation is allowed but the data is better for the study when an actual measurement is made. One the index documentation card you will need to record your latitude and longitude, water temperature, and sargassum notes. When you return home from your trip you can mail the date card back to the program and they will send you more tags and cards. At the end of the year there are several awards given for the top taggers in each region. If you send in a tagging card for five tagged fish you will also get a free t-shirt! For those who are lucky enough to catch a tagged fish they can also receive a free Dolphinfish Tagging Program T-Shirt. All of our clients get their own QR code for free when purchasing an ad.
