[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he next two months will be the last shot for some really quality fishing. The tuna and marlin will have settled in to the routine. Some of the largest tuna will be showing up in the sound the next two months. Yellowfin to upwards of 70-pounds for those who put in the time. For the tuna, small baits will do the trick, as well as cedar plugs and small swimming ballyhoo with or without an Islander cover. Early morning and late afternoon will be the best times.
For marlin, larger lures and big baits are the plan here, with whole mackerel and horse ballyhoo being the “go to” baits. We have had several marlin also grab small tuna as they were being reeled in.
Deep dropping will continue to be strong and bottom fishing as well.
