Bigeye tuna lives in the warm temperate waters of the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans, making quite extensive migrations. Above all, you can expect to see one on the upper east coast of the United States, as well as on the islands of the mid-Atlantic. Naturally, the Azores are another great destination for bluefin tuna fishing in the Atlantic. On the coast of Portugal, near the migratory route of blueberries that reach the Mediterranean from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean, the Azores are the temporary feeding area for bluefin, bigeye and yellowfin tuna from April to June.
New Zealand is another major source of tuna, with bluefin tuna from the Pacific and yellowfin available from all angles. The hidden gem is located southeast of New Orleans, where the marshes and the Mississippi give way to the great Gulf and the precious tuna it contains. If you're serious about angling, you'll know that there's nothing like fishing for tuna. While I'm not a tuna fan by any means, I've been fortunate to see some good ones caught during my trips with marlins.
Accept your offer, and when they help you fish, you won't regret doing it. Yesterday I witnessed an incredible capture while filming an episode of On The Water TV on Stellwagen Bank: a giant tuna. These fish are often seen gusting through dense schools of bait fish, bathing in spray as they do so. Bluefin tuna, a world record with all IGFA gear, weighs just under 1500 pounds and was caught in Nova Scotia.
Since the largest specimen ever caught weighed 1,496 pounds, it is redundant to say that it is the largest tuna and one of the largest true bone fish. The trip south takes between 2 and a half days and 3 and a half days to get to the fishing areas, but LoPreste says the fishermen keep busy preparing the gear and watching the DVDs. From its size to the splashes in the water, it's no secret that yellowfin tuna is one of many anglers' favorite catches, a catch that requires skill and a little old-fashioned patience to get it on board. This fish usually stays in deep or warm tropical waters, and its routine is only compensated by seasonal migrations to colder areas (southern Brazil and the Gulf of Mexico).
The island of Sicily (right on the tip of the boot) has access to both and is a fantastic place to hunt bluefin tuna during the months of April to December. Explore the swamp state or sail east for more fishing in the Gulf's unique underwater topography, including deep-sea canyons, reefs teeming with fish, and more. Despite all the similarities, the other three bluefin tunas are much larger than the long-tailed tuna, which rarely weigh more than 70 pounds.
