Default flipper and bottom fishing

went out this moring, perfect conditions. got up on a good reef, started catching grouper (they were hungry) and here come the damn dolphins...only was able to boat a few fish before they started swimming up and steal the fish off our lines..put a fork in it. between the lefties, the oil companies and now the damn dolphins, its a tough go out there.

yea, the kids and the wife love 'em... maybe its only a major problem around common public reefs like the one we were on. i cant imagine them following the boat around from spot to spot.

I don't know if you can get them but the bait boats in Destin will give you a couple of small remoras if you ask,,,
When flipper gets close throw a remora out just past him,,,the remora will latch on and flipper will take off raising Hell trying to get rid of him,,, LMAO
Works Pretty Good

man, i thought about that...having someone chunk a livey over the rail just as i hook up...you know they say those dolphins are as smart as a dog and most dogs are smarter than people so that probably wouldnt work..

Between the remoras, the dolphin, and the sharks, fishing on public reefs has become more trouble than it's worth.

never had too much problem with sharks big enough to do what these dolphins are doing(snaging 10lb grouper off the line)....that said, wouldnt suprise me if they did. fishing close-in, shallow reefs for sea bass and such....forget about it, sharks are hell.

Never, ever do anything to "harass" these precious creatures. You'll get a visit from a gung ho, non sympathetic fed that could care less about how your fishing day turns out. They'll even attempt to entrap you for hearsay, so... beware.

I see these flipper robbed me post all the time and alway's get a kick out of reading them. Maybe I'm just lucky but I have fished with them all around the boat on several occassions and have never had one of them take anything off my hook. But they will lay beside the boat and wait for me to throw the fish back. I have alway's enjoyed feeding them. They are beautiful creatures. Smart too, probably smarter than some people.

The post are fun to read though.

Like BurntDrag was saying, Please don't do anything to hurt them. They're doing what nature designed them to do.
