BLACKFIN TUNA are on fire in Miami right now.

The Blackfin Tuna bite is very consistent right now, off the coast of Miami. The fish seem to be biting best in the late afternoon and are ranging in size from 20-30lbs. They showed up a little late this year, as they normally show up in April. Kite fishing has been the main method of targeting these tasty fish. Live chumming with pilchards will get them frenzied up and if your lucky, they will find your spread shortly after that. 40lb. Flourocarbon leader and 5/0 circle hooks should do the trick. When attempting to gaff the tuna’s be sure to wait for your shot. The top of the pinwheel is best. Bon appetite!IMG_1738
