Lure: “Fishcrack Series” Trolling Lure
Color: “Flying Fish” (Blue/White)
Weight: 1/2 Ounce
Description: ConservOcean’s “Fishcrack Series” Trolling Lure in Blue / White is one of the best lures for blackfin tuna due to the fact that it mimics a flying fish darting along the surface of the water. The 1/2 ounce bullet head is hand-dipped in epoxy and infused with glitter for added flash that catches the attention of a blackfin tuna from below. A holographic eye creates an even more realistic baitfish imitation on this blackfin lure. The body is made up of a combination of synthetic fibers that are bonded together with thread and epoxy to withstand countless attacks and remain intact.
Trolling Methods: The best trolling method for blackfin tuna is to use the “Fishcrack Series” lure by itself without natural bait. The lure should be slid over a double strength 7/0 trolling hook on 40-80lb monofilament leader. Fluorocarbon will get the most strikes, but regular monofilament will work for the blackfin tuna as well. Trolling speeds should be kept in between 4 and 7 knots. It is important to keep the boat moving forward once a blackfin tuna is hooked to avoid slack line and pulled hooks. If you follow these steps then you will see that this is one of the best blackfin tuna lures on the planet.
