Tuna fishing Los Angeles
From May until September Los Angeles has some excellent tuna fishing.
Tuna is a popular saltwater fish that has 15 different species. A powerful and nimble predator, the tuna has a sleek, streamlined body, and is among the fastest-swimming open ocean fish.
Tuna´s can be recognized by their rounded bodies which narrow to a small tail base and a forked or crescent-shaped tail. They often shimmer as they come toward the surface of the water. With an almost ombre flesh their tops are dark and they fade into a silvery bottom.
This in demand fish can often be spotted chasing schools of smaller fish. On our private fishing charters in Los Angeles, we lure the tuna with live bait of sardines or mackerel, combined with other attractive tackle. If you think waiting is the hard part, wait until they bite, that when the fun begins.
Commonly called ahi, from the Hawaiian name for the fish, Yellowfin tuna is a tuna species that is regularly seen on our private fishing charters off the coast of Los Angeles. The fish is very easy to identify because while on the hunt you will see their yellow dorsal fins as they jump above the water. Unlike some other types of tuna Yellowfin tend to stay in the top 100 m (330 ft) of the water.
Also known as the longfin tuna or white tuna in stores, Albacore is one of the smaller tuna species, reaching sizes between skipjack and yellowfin. Albacore live in schools based on their stage in the life cycle and can be found all over the world. They are identifiable by their extremely long pectoral fin.
