What is the best bait fish for blue fin tuna?

The bluefish references bring back a  memory .... Once upon a time there was an Augie's Bait & Tackle in Babylon. The store was blown apart, along with the rest of the waterfront, by a hurricane. It relocated, and now it's Trophy Tackle in West Islip (not the same owner.) Anyway, for years, they had a big poster of a large bluefish being chased by a giant bluefin, the fish going in and out of the water together. The photo had originally appeared in Salt Water Sportsman.


This photo predated autofocus, though aperture priority or shutter speed priority setting were available on most cameras. The photographer had to twist the lens barrel to focus, and push or pull the barrel of the zoom he or she was probably using. A darn good job.
