Your best bet to catch these blackfin tuna will be drifting live pilchards during the first and last two hours of sunlight. The best of the bite has been from 150-200 feet of water. The average blackfin tuna has been weighing in at around 25 pounds but several have been weighed in at 35 pounds. If you want to troll for blackfin tuna use small baits and fish them 250 yards minimum behind the boat. Troll at a speed of at least 7-10 knots over ground.

Good luck,
