Dolphins Feeding Frenzy
I watched Saturday as about 6 dolphins were in what appeared to bea feeding frenzy in the Stump Lagoon area. I was passed the island and was working my way into the canal to fish when I noticed 2 dolphins swimming very quickly through the water. One dolphin swam up the ditch just to the left side of the canal as you are heading to the back of Stump. I watched as the dolphins worked about a 100 yard area apparently chasing fish. My question is this. Do the dolphin run the trout away from the area? I had 6 trout in the boat and once I got to the area where the dolphins were, the trout shut down!
I would think the trout would be a tasty treat for the dolphins. Can some of you share your opinions, experiences with fishing for trout when dolphins are present? I ended up moving away from that area. I was just curious if other anglers had problems catching trout with dolphins in the area.
