When it comes to finding the best fishing grounds, some captains seem to have that fifth sense. Such helmsmen can consistently navigate to productive waters using little more than visual observation of the conditions and a chart or two. On the opposite end of the spectrum, some captains won’t leave the dock without the latest in high-tech gadgetry– satellite images, altimetry data and multiple on-board fish finding sonars and the like. For most captains, it is a happy medium that combines local knowledge with the right amount of technology that guides their search for productive water.
