I have spent my whole life on and around the Atlantic Ocean. When I was young I used to spend most of my free time surfing. I then started spearfishing, and finally trolling for Dolphin. Fishing is what I like to do most in my life. Now, my favorite technique is trolling with artificial lures for White and Blue Marlin. We may also catch Wahoo, Dolphin, King Mackerel, and Sailfish.
