How does one get into Commercial Tuna fishing ?

Dump about 250 grand on a boat and gear, then prepare for lots of bills and expenses while you catch next to nothing. Tuna fishing is a trade, hard learned over many years. Even then there's NO guarantee the fish will eat!

It looks pretty easy to me. You just cut a herring into 5 peices, shovel it over the side and ..boom... your on. 5 minutes later you tie your fish off, steam in and collect a fat check.

Used to call it 'Tuna Wishing' back when I was 'involved'. 90% of the Tuna are caught by 10% of the Fishermen. Be prepared to spend copious amounts of 'Cash' to Feed the Dogfish...............

What was the old joke - how do you make a small fortune in the stock market? Start with a big one...

 

If you're serious become a mate and work your way up. Oh, save your pennies too
