Offshore we have vast schools of Yellow Fin and Big Eye Tuna year round.
We catch tuna using several techniques including trolling, live bait and the most exciting, casting poppers for explosive surface attacks!
-Casting poppers to feeding schools of tuna will bring explosive surface attacks and diving lures and jigs also provide great action when the fish are active.
-Live bait dropped deep into the schools of tuna is hands down the best method for catching quality fish. We use a variety of 'livies' such as Threadfin Herring, Blue Runners and Goggle-Eyes. The baits are typically dropped ahead of the schools to target the large fish that don't feed on the surface as often.
