Find something floating. Always keep one in the water and on the hook. Woody Wax deck beforehand or scrub soon after landing each fish.

This is absolutely true. It will look like a chain saw massacre if you get into them, so catch em up and them wash down the mess, if you wait until you get back in you will have to scrub your tailend off to get the mess up. Just before you go on your trip, get on here and ask questions about where the weed lines are. Distance and directions. Those who are running long trips to the rigs and the spur and so on will have current info that will help you immensely. You find floating debris and you will most likely find some dolphin. Blue water and rips are also a good place to find them. Watch for bird activity also. Find diving , feeding birds and there is a decent possibility you will find them as well.

+2 on the mess...one dolphin slung blood from the bow to the stern on my flats boat...plus all over me. I looked like the guy from Gangs of New York when he was done.

When fishing a rip or color change do you typically fish on the blue water side of the color change?
