Tuna fishing is a fishing technique that brings together all the ways to fish this incredible predator. You can fish via trolling, spinning or jigging among others. Tuna is a fierce fighter, so adequate material is required to face this magnificent fighter.
Because of the tuna species size and strength a strong rod, reel, line, leader and lure or hook is required for this fishing style.
There is specialised equipment for this fishing technique and the reels especially can be expensive. The best saltwater tuna fishing reels are Shimano Tiagra, Alutecnos Albacore or Gorilla, Daiwa Sealine, Accurate or Penn for example.
Best places in the world to fish for tuna:
Kona in Hawaii, Outer Banks in North Carolina, San Diego in California, the Canary Islands, Mediterranean Sea (Croatia, Italy, Spain ...) , Puerto Vallarta in Mexico and Nuova Scotia in Canada.
