Capt. Franky Pet­tolina’s Mar­lin Pat­tern

Saltwater Sportsman - - Canyon Explorations -

To start the day, Pet­tolina looks for the edge of a warmwa­ter eddy to cross the canyon. He trolls along the edge, zigzag­ging from warm wa­ter to cooler wa­ter and back. Dur­ing the day, he notes which di­rec­tion the wa­ter is mov­ing and marks each mar­lin en­counter on his chart plot­ter. When he has three marks, he works the in­side of the tri­an­gle to find more bites. As the warm wa­ter moves over struc­ture, schools of mar­lin will break away from the edge to hunt.
