one of the most overlooked aspects of dolphin fishing is chum... good 'ol menhaden chum... once the first fish is on, and others have been spotted, throw the chum overboard and you'll hold the school 50% longer... also, on a slow day when fish are visible but hard to bite, slow troll with chum bag in the water to "turn them on" & bring them to you... the scent washes over & around your ballyhoo/feather combo, and can be the difference between filling your boxes or spooking "turned off" fish... this will cure the "looker" curse...
