Tuna (Yellowfin) Fishing in Florida
The productivity of Yellowfin Tuna fishing off Florida is, sadly, on the decline, even though Blackfin Tuna are sticking around.
However, Yellowfin can still be reached, it just takes a long trip to do it. Anglers going out from the Atlantic coast can find them far offshore on the eastern edge of the Gulf Stream and the Gulf coast fishermen hunt them down on oil rig trips off the Panhandle.
- Tuna (Yellowfin) fishing in Florida varies slightly throughout the year. High season is January to April and November to December. Low season is May to October. There is no closed season.
