anglers agree that giant bluefin tuna fishing can be one of the
most difficult big game fish challenges the ocean has to
offer. Yet it is also one of fishing's greatest rewards. To
win a battle with a giant bluefin on an 80 or 130 class rod is a
thrill. But many anglers don't have that opportunity.
Especially since the resource has dwindled due to
over fishing by the European Union countries.
However, fishing for school
and medium tuna on 30 and 50 class standup gear can provide
the same thrills and is within the range and budget of most
anglers. Maverick Charters has developed proven tackle and
techniques to assist you in this endeavor. We will share
this bluefin tuna
knowledge with you and hopefully a tip or two will add
to the success of your next offshore outing.

Dave and Eben with our
first market bluefin in 2008. We had a double hookup. The
75" tuna hit a rigged ballyhoo with a skirt. We
released the 60" school bluefin that crashed a naked
ballyhoo behind a Bait Shower Teaser.
Dave and Capt. Randy with a 900# bluefin caught on the
Maverick in November 2009 at The Figs.
As you all know the keys to
success when bluefin tuna fishing are preparation, timing, the right tackle and a
little bit of luck. Wishing you Tightlines.
