Yellowfin Tuna off Miami!
Sunday it was a nice calm day so we decided to grab the family and go out for a family day.
A Fishing Family.
Barracuda bite came first.
We got out just south of fowie rocks light and put out our kite and a couple of flat lines, first we caught a nice barracuda which did a high jump on our left short. I picked up the rod and fought him for about 15-20 minutes and we got him along side the boat and gagged him.
Tuna bite came second.
I was watching my right kite and out of no where the flat line went off. I ran over there closed the bail and picked it up and checked my drag. After about 20 minutes of fighting my dad started to think it was acting like a shark. just saying deep and not doing much. I was tight on 12lb bullbuster mono with a 20lb mono leader. After about an hour and 10 minutes I finally brought alongside the L&H a beautiful 35lb yellowfin tuna!!

Late winter and early spring can be a great time of year to catch big wahoo off south Florida!!! This time of year we fish for them with live baits fished from kites and flat lines. Goggle Eyes, blue Runners, cigar minnows, pilchards and herring are some of our favorites but anything alive will do the trick. A short piece of wire attached to the hook is a must. We use clear bullbuster 50 pound mono to finish off the leader.
