[dropcap]S[/dropcap]eptember is the month to look forward to black fin tunas and skipjack. Cedar plugs and small green/yellow and blue/white lures are your best bet. You will find dolphin in weed lines and current rips. Blue marlin will still be migrating north with the spawning season. You will want to use larger lures and troll at a faster speed to cover more territory.

Bottom fishing is always good this time of year with the calm seas. Deep drop electric reeling between 700-1200 feet of water will produce yellow eye and queen snappers. Snowy groupers can be caught in 300-400 feet of water. Best bait for the deep dropping is cut barracuda bait and squid. Wahoo bellies are excellent cut bait if you have it.

Catch ‘em up
