Years ago, NOAA actually had a well known Gloucester fishing captain go on a trip and observe what they do. They picked spots via computer, to make 30-40 minute tows. But many times, they were trying spots that there was known not to be any fish to start with — areas that fisherman wouldn’t fish that time of year. Read more here
