Tunas: Bluefin, Yellowfin, and Bigeye
All the tunas are very swift swimmers, provide a thrilling and sometimes backbreaking fight and are literally hot blooded. The giant bluefin tuna is the biggest and most lucrative of the tunas in our waters and thus creates much competition amongst fishermen.
Yellowfin are commonly caught in near offshore waters as are albacore.
Bigeye tuna are infrequently caught since they're found far offshore at the canyons
    (90-100 miles offshore).

Location: Offshore east of North shore, Cape Cod Bay, East of Cape Cod, South of Islands offshore in Canyons

Baits and Lures: bait fish used with chum slick; plastic squids, multi-squid rigs, daisy chains, jigs.

Methods and Tackle: Trolling, chunk baits with chum; medium to heavy tackle Restrictions: albacore (none), bigeye (none), yellowfin (proposed bag limit and federal permit), bluefin (federal permit needed, bag limits - consult National Marine Fisheries Service).
