the most important factor influencing the destination of a short-range
pelagic is the local weather: In particularly severe conditions (i.e.
wind speeds above Bft 7), we normally position
ourselves leeward-side of the islands, taking advantage of the
natural shelter provided. In such circumstances, we have generally
faired quite well seeing most if not all of the sort after species,
including Wilson's Storm-petrel.In calm conditions locations are unaffected but our techniques may change from 'drift and chum' to 'steam and chum'.
