I do not think what Fred saw were Yellowfin, most likely Bonito or Skipjack. Yellowfin will not some in that close on our shores especially round the Konkan, the only place they would would be so close and I am guessing nere are at Batkal, I have fished there and it has all the possibilities. I have seen skipjack and bonito several times when I went out trolling from several places off the Konkan, in thousands some times even have pictures of them feeding.

The Yellowfin I am referring to were in India and only once did I see them there, they were reall huge, sickle fin ones, taking right out of the water. I estimated them to be 200 - 300+ lb and this was over 25 - 30 NM offshore. If it was not for a nasty accident on that trip at that very instance I am sure we would have struck gold. We had to cut the trip short and return back.

King Fish, I am now in Hong Kong. I was in India last week, infact I met Fred while crossing a road. I may be back in India on Saturday.

@Kingfish: At one port near our place occasionaly yellowfin tuna is landed. Many times I have seen huge flocks of tern crash diving to catch bait fishes a little away from sea shore. But I do not know it is because of tuna or some other. Last week also 2 days we saw huge flocks of terns diving to catch bait fishes. I have never ventured into sea so for, may be towards this month end we may go but not sure.

Bobby,
Thank you for clarifying matters.

Unless one has heavy fighting gear and a properly equipped boat for
Sport fishing , there is no chance one can land the yellowfin tuna of the sizes You have seen.

I doubt if such an outfit is available anywhere in our waters in India.

By the way, the Tuna we catch using spinning rods are long tail tuna
Which usually run to about 8-10lbs., although there are bigger ones.

Regards,
Kingfish

Venkat,

There seems to be a window of opportunity there.

Why don't you take an exploratory trip on a calm day and do some trolling
With the heavier outfit and also keep a spinning rod handy with a silver
Twisty at the end?

If you do see those terns in action, there may be no harm in casting the Twisty and seeing what hits !

It would be really interesting to find out and who knows, you may just start
Something for other anglers to emulate?

Wishing you good luck.

Kingfish

I used to see a lot of mid size tuna landed when I was in Sri Lanka. Maybe Kanyakumari could become India's tuna mecca.

Ken,

Interesting.

Would you know what type of tuna those were? And what weights?

Presumably these were caught by anglers and if so, would you remember
What lures and techniques were utilised?

Thank you.
Kingfish

Bobby,

That is a solid fish!

One can now understand why it would need your type of boat and equipment to tackle a tuna of this size.

Regards,
Kingfish

"Personally I like my tuna marinated with salt, pepper and garlic paste, seared and eaten with a squeeze of lime. "

seared on a grill... yummm.

I am not a Big Tuna fan. Only like to eat it raw - sashimi or sushi, or into a pate mixed with kingfish with mayo and mashed potato.

You must bleed Tuna as soon as caught, the flesh tastes better.

Last month went with the family to Phuket, the kids caught some Albacore and Bonito, had them fried just with pepper and salt, was OK.

Another reason I don't fancy Tuna so much is the Uric acid in some tuna gets my pee to really stink! :lol: :lol:
