Welcome to board Bluff Rat. You going out on PB or private boat? Your 6/0 should work for chunking/free lining. Use circle hooks and 80lb mono/flo for leader. You may have to go down to 60-50lb if tuna is wary.

You may get in to some big AJ too. Good Luck.

Welcome to 360 Tuna

Is your trip 1 night , 2 night, ??

Find 1 more rod reel in class of 750 penn spin or 3\0 type
for jigging black fin tuna.

Hope you have a blast.
