When warm Gulf Stream water moves into Fishtails, it’s a hotspot for yellowfin tuna, bigeye tuna, mahi-mahi, and white and blue marlin.

In recent years, large concentrations of bigeye tuna have moved into Fishtails and large numbers of bigeye tuna have been caught in Fishtails in the late summer.

Trolling is a popular tactic in Fishtails, but chunking at night, and at times during the day, is very productive as well, especially with yellowfin tuna.
