BLACKFIN TUNA OFF KEY WEST
Averaging 2 to 25 lbs., the most common tuna caught in the keys is the blackfin tuna. However, it is a rare delight to capture one of the larger of the species; the yellowfin tuna.
Pound for pound, tunas are the best fighting fish around. A combination of live pilchards and chum makes for a successful day of tuna fishing.
Tuna is delicious sushi style as well as cooked to your liking.
The prime months for catching tuna in the keys are October thru May.
