CATCHING BLUE FIN TUNA - BAIT, LURES, TROLLING, AND OTHER TIPS
The Spread And Speed
Setting an effective spread is where a lot of fisherman will go wrong. Knowing where and how far back to position your lures is something that can only be learned from hours on the water. If you’re just starting out, it’s good to purchase lures where the manufacturer has a suggested position and troll speed on the packaging. This will take some of the guess work out of it and save you time on the water trying to get a lure to swim effectively. When determining your lure position, it’s good to place lures where it is as easy as possible for the fish to see them. When targeting Blue Fin, I like to run deep divers from the inside corners closest to the transom. This puts them below the prop wash and provides a clear silhouette against the white bubbles over them. On the outside along the corner I like to run a daisy chain outside of the wake on the outriggers in clean water, especially when you are turning, I choose sizes ranging from 4 to 6 inches in length. From the middle of the stern with a quick release clamp I run a cedar plug 2 to 3 wakes back right were the prop wash starts to dissipates, the middle long back out lure should be put in the rocket launcher above the helm, I prefer a metal bullet head bubbler with a dark skirt or feather, as it will travel in a circular pattern to the surface and then back down again with a tracer of air bubbles.
