Yellowfin Tuna Fishing in Florida

Yellowfin Tuna
  • Size 15 to 150lbs
  • Food Value Excellent
  • Game Qualities Excellent
  • Habitats Offshore

(Thunnus albacares)

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.

Lady J Sportfishing in New Smyrna Beach is an excellent choice on the Atlantic side and Maximus can get you on to Yellowfin out of Destin.

If you are looking to catch largemouth bass, look for Captain Dave of David Paycheck fishing charters. He is an amazing captain and very knowledgeable about the fish.

Be careful about when you book in refards to opening day for Red Snapper. It can quickly get "overfished".

Sun’s too hot for fish and some waters can be saturated with bait by the end of the day Sunday. Early morning and cooler weather better.

I booked this trip for my husband for Father's Day. Along with a friend. They had a good time. The Captain and crew were great. Unfortunately they came home with no fish. One person caught a Grouper and my husband caught a Trigger Fish. The Captain felt bad and even stayed out a little longer but nature said No.. This also was the night fishing trip. I will definitely book again.

Ask to catch lots of fish, they will put you on a spot to do that, if you ask to catch big fish, they will put you on the spot but if fish do not cooperate well then you won't catch fish. But in the first spot once you start catching fish you never know, you could catch something big .

Right time of year to land red snapper! Bring sunscreen and plenty of water or Gatorade, your favorite canned drinks (non alcoholic) to stay hydrated. Small snacks are all you need. Most of your time you’ll spend fishing or enjoying the boat ride. If you get seasick, plan to take Dramamine the night before and the morning of - the water can get choppy when you get out in deep water.

I was worried that a tropical storm moved through the day before dumping lots of rain. Captain Bill assured me the lake would be fine. He was right. Bring sunscreen, water and lots of bait.
