Best Live Bait Presentation • Yellowfin Tuna Fishing
Live baiting is usually the most productive method for yellowfin tuna fishing but presentation is key. The most effective live bait presentation for catching yellowfin is achieved by collar hooking the bait. To collar hook a bait, you want to hook the bait on the back side of the gills on top of the fish. You also want to match the hook to the size of the bait, bigger hooks for larger and/or stronger swimming baits and smaller hooks for the smaller baits. A nose hooked bait keeps the bait on the surface which makes for those dramatic top-water bites, but it isn’t the most consistent presentation. Live baiting with multiple lines in the water can be difficult to manage if there is too much slack in the line. Keeping the line fairly tight by using the current and wind to your advantage will help you avoid a tangled web of baits.
