Five Tuna Fishing Tips

Safety is of the utmost importance when tuna fishing. You have to be careful when you are fishing out on the open water, but especially when you are fishing for tuna amongst the whales and sharks. If the water is rough, you might be better off turning around and docking until the next day. Make sure that you have all the radio gear and safety equipment onboard before you set out on the water. If you see a crowd of boats, go somewhere by yourself. The fish will be more apt to come to an area without so much confusion and it is safer without all those lines around you.

Experiment with different techniques for catching tuna. You need to change it up a bit when you are tuna fishing. If you are not having any luck, try different direction, speed, spacing, color, size and rigs. You might have to try a different time of day than you did before. There are so many variables to consider before you give up and go home empty handed. Make sure that you try different baits before giving up as well. Everything can work, but then sometimes, nothing you are used to can work. You have to be prepared to experiment with different things and techniques.

If you follow these simple five tips for tuna fishing, you should have no problems getting a tuna on the line. Just remember that the time of day, weather and where you fish can change every day. You have to keep a map of the areas you fish and what type of actions you see. Look for some dolphins or whales and you will probably find some tuna real close. You can present the bait and watch them come around for dinner. Just make sure that all your equipment is secure and that you have a boat that handle the fight of the tuna without any problems that could make the boat take on water.
