Big Kings And Tuna Off Ft. Lauderdale

blackfin tuna

Anglers deep sea fishing with me aboard the Reel Work out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida this week were kept entertained by large blackfin tuna and king mackerel. Blackfin tuna are found in the western Atlantic Ocean from Massachusetts south to Brazil, including the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. They are a highly migratory species that can grow to around 45 lbs. The gulf stream keeps them near our shores for much of the year. King mackerel are known as one of the fastest fish in the ocean. There drag screaming runs have earned the name of smokers. They average between 20 and 30 lbs but can get up to 90 lbs. King mackerel have an almost identical range as the blackfin tuna. The prefered method for catching both blackfin tuna and king mackerel is by trolling live and dead bait fish, spoons, jigs and artificial lures.
