Yellowfin tuna are a large member of the scombridae family, and are found in tropical offshore waters. Yellowfin tuna can reach 180kg and just over 2m, but are commonly encountered at about 1m and 20-30kg.
Tuna are a highly-mobile schooling fish and are constantly on the lookout for food. They are often taken by those trolling game lures or baits (dead or live) for marlin. They are also bait fished for, with cubes or fish flesh tossed over the side to attract them to the boat. Here are some tackle recommendations for your next yellowfin tuna trip.
