Something Missing

TunaCommander | Posted: January 16, 2003

Big Eye tuna are caught within 1-2 day range of the San Diego Fleet. Big Eye commonly school with small yellowfin tuna. The best approach is to start fishing the BigEYE approx. 10-15 minutes after a school of small yellowfin are brought to the stern of the boat. Large sardinas and small spanish macs are preferred bait. They are also caught trolling usually in schools of three.
