Ocean currents are what bring fish into range of commercial and private boat ports. Currents are a movement of ocean water generated by forces such as wind, waves, temperature and salinity differences, tides and the rotation of the earth.
Ocean surface current observations are derived from altimetry (sea surface height maps) and are limited to current in the open ocean. Our current maps don’t provide information on near-shore tidal currents, but they can give you great insight into where pelagic fish will accumulate offshore. Open-ocean currents can move fish miles over the course of a day. Satfish keeps you up to date with where a current is headed and where you can meet it the next day. This technology give you a great advantage to tracking the fish and picking back up on the bite.
