We had a great week tuna fishing out of Ilwaco,
The overall fishing and weather was great but it did get pretty bumpy Friday night.
The tuna are not very far out and they seem to be getting even closer each day.
We had our best results fishing live bait on schools of jumpers and bird patches but we were also able the catch fish on the troll each day.
I expect the tuna fishing to just keep getting better for the next two weeks but I will be shifting my efforts to trophy lingcod and bottom fish this week.
(I still have a few seats open for the big lingcod)
