Is anyone on this thread have experience with yellowfin tuna?
Three of us are going out for our first overnight tuna trip. I am looking at which boat to book right now and I am having a hard time deciding between the Tribute with Seaforth or the Old Glory out of H and M Landing.
We are going to try for one leaving on a Wednesday Oct 17 or the Thursday Oct 18. I am not sure which night is better and maybe less anglers and not as crowded.
From the Youtube videos it looks like a lot of flylining with live bait for yellowfin and skipjack. Which size hook would you recommend. 4/0 or 5/0 live bait hook with the ring? I have the largest Cabelas Salt Striker reel that I use for sturgeon and it currently has 80lb braid. I was planning on using a 4 ft flourocarbon leader at 40 lbs. Would that work or should I load up that reel with all new line?
Should I buy any lures to try out? I have also posted for advice on the California BigFishTackle page. Thanks for the help. Jay
