Episode #397 North Lake Bluefin Tuna

Today the Destination takes us to North Lake on beautiful Prince Edward Island.

After a very scenic and comfortable drive out in the RAM,  Charlie and Terri join up with Tony’s Tuna Fishing.  The hard fighting Giant Bluefin Tuna are the target today, and Captain Tony MacDonald has brother Captain Bradley along, so it’s double the trouble for the Tuna!  The day starts by catching the bait, and only the best are kept to tempt these monsters.  It sure doesn’t take long for the rods to bend!!  True big game fishing at home in Canada!!   Bluefin Tuna this week on….Fishful Thinking.

Species:  Bluefin Tuna

Tackle for Bluefin Tuna:

-  Seaguar Blue Label 100% Fluorocarbon Leader Material

-  Daiwa Tanacom power assist reels with automatic stop feature

-  Seaguar Threadlock high Impact braided lines

-  Viking 100% waterproof jackets, pants and Bibs

Technique:  Long lines and kite fishing for Bluefin Tuna. These fish can be extremely spooky and line shy.  Even cleaning the leaders every hour can make the difference. Long lines are used and even a kite to present the baits to the fish away from the boat.  Long lines tackle a deeper bite, the kite for incredible surface hits.

Special Thanks:  Tony’s Tuna fishing with Captain Tony MacDonald
