Tuna are large and tasty saltwater game fish. There is no doubt that most of the tuna species get pretty big and at the larger sizes make them a big game fishing target. There are several species of tuna including the albacore, blackfin, skipjack and bluefin. You can catch tuna in coastal estuary waters, but most anglers pursue tuna offshore.

One of the most popular methods of fishing for tuna is trolling. Trolling is done with feather jigs, small squid imitations, live or fresh dead bait and even hard bodied lures.

Another popular method for catching tuna is to drift (or anchor) and start a chum line (burley trail) and wait for the fish to show. Once the fish arrive the anglers send a baited hook into the trail to temp the fish into biting. Chum or bait fish styled flies also work well in this situation.

Sightcasting small lures or flies to tuna is also popular in some parts of the world and can be a very effective method for catching tuna.
