Same here...I'd rather mow the lawn than drag lures behind a boat :) 

 

I know that im very lucky that I have a group of friends with tuna capable boats with the same mindset.  And I also know that trolling seems like an easier way to start out tuna fishing, but in my mind there's an obvious progression from randomly trolling between known hot spots and figuring out how to actually hunt the fish down.  The guys who have been tuna fishing for years and continue to exclusively troll blow my mind.

OK???? I guess???:eek:

:dismay: its not OK, Go for it... ;)

 

Charter a boat. Go with someone that has a good rep for catching, and he will have all the gear.

 

Someone with a nice CC would be a lot of fun... :wave:

Been tuna fishing probly 6 times. Never bluefins.

Only time i really enjoyed was throwing poppers at

80 lb yellowfin in Costa Rica. Tuna in general too

much like work. Thanks for all the extra info, but honestly,

i was just curious if you could sell them with that permit.

If you want to sell them, you must have a commercial license.

Yes you need a permit.  I have a rec permit which allows me to keep 1 fish under 73"/day.

 

You buy them from NOAA, $26 and they are specific to boat not the angler.

 

The status changes if certain slots are open depending on total catches. 

 

I'm a tuna rookie so I'll stay in my lane with other specifics.

That’s the default limit, right now (and for the past few seasons) you can keep 2 fish 27”-47”and one 47”- <73”. Dark colored bars a the hot ticket right now.

Really good friend just caught a 180-190 pound bluefin out of San Diego. So happy for him. He just came back in. Looking forward to finding out more soon when we talk.

Might go Monday am if weather holds.  Long way in Whaler but if its calm it'll be easy.

Where are you running from and what’s the boat name? I’m supposed to take some guys out meat fishing but if that falls through I’ll be out there. It may be a little bumpy after the NE blow but shouldn’t be too bad.
