Fished Dec. 27,28,29. First day caught a 160 pound tuna, four dorado and lost a marlin. Second day caught a 100 pound tuna. The third day caught two dorado, two sails and a marlin. Jumped off a marlin later in the day. Fished Jan 2,3. First day caught two dorado and lost a big tuna. The boys on the boat got a kick out of the tuna when we were in the middle of a boil and 100-300 pound tuna were all around us. We had thrown live bait and were waiting on the bite. It was a sight to see.

Are you fishing dolphin schools or structure of some sort for the tuna?

Dorado are blind strike, trolling current line or finding a log. Tuna are 99% of the time with the right kind of porpoise.

Gaff em in the upper belly and roll them upside down. They get confused and gives you a second to pull them up. Top gaffing they might get head down and you have big trouble!
