Bluefin Tuna Action Draws Anglers Offshore

Geoffrey Bartlett https://bit.ly/2Yh7vbS

When a fish ranges from 30lbs to 1000lbs, there's got to be more than one way to fish for it.  

Bluefin have moved into our waters, while continuing to show strong action to the south of us. This week on The Fishing News, Kevin Blinokff of On The Water magazine talks about ways to target bluefin. Commercial fishermen, angling for the giant fish, are using the heaviest gear. But casting for smaller bluefin can be done on tackle not unlike what you use for striped bass. 

We talk bluefin, plus we round up the the rest of the fishing action. It's four salty minutes. Give it a listen.
