The Dump

TheDump_Grab

The dump is a relatively wide area, comprised of a 10×10 mile square and is considered by many to the furthest of the “inside” offshore spots. You’ll often hear people talking about the dump relative to its corners, i.e. SE, NE, SW, NW Corners. There isn’t a huge amount of structure in the various places, but somehow seems to be at the epicenter of warm water eddies that move in from the gulf stream and therefore is well known for a mix of yellowfin, bluefin, mahi and marlin. It also takes second position to the closer spots for shark fishing as a result of fewer contour lines and structure that can hold bait.

The dump has held the most YFT, Albecore, and wahoo in recent years, as well a large number of very large mahi mahi. If there is a good warm break near the dump and you have the range, go.
