Tuna fishing is best in and around Key West. Most Tuna caught in Key West is black fin tuna; although yellow fin tuna are caught here it’s very rare. Tuna fishing is done trolling often on the offshore sea mounts, or even just past where the reef drops off. Tuna are also targeted on the deeper wrecks using various methods including jigging. Captains like to use live chum to lure the tuna. Small baits such as pilchards, cluster around the boat for safety as the predator fish rise and surround the boat to eat them. Available only certain times of the year, is fishing for Tuna behind shrimp boats. Shrimp boats troll and net small fish and crab which most die and then are thrown over board. This chum line of dead fish attracts many predator fish including tuna and provides many hours of action packed fishing.
