Subject: What Are The Sporting Qualities Of A Yellowfin Tuna In Los Suenos?
(Posted on Mar 9, 2014 at 07:09AM by Lee Byard)

yellowfin tuna fishing los suenos costa ricaThe Yellowfin Tuna is impossible to ignore. This Los Suenos fish is noted for its bold coloring and bullet-shaped body, with tiny finlets propelling it through even the wildest waves.

It often proves popular with anglers, with its sporting quality profile tempting them into the Pacific.


The Yellowfin Tuna is the strongest of the Tuna family. This creature reaches weights of up to 400 pounds and has a muscular frame that can snap small-grade tackle.


The Yellowfin Tuna is famed for its speed. It often accelerates to 55 miles per hour and can sustain this intensity for long distances. It’s not a sprinter, like the Sailfish or the Blue Marlin. It’s instead a marathon swimmer.


The Yellowfin Tuna tends to fight with simple, but persistent, movements. Expect tugs and pulls, with the occasional leap above the surface.

Catching a Yellowfin is an always exciting - but often frustrating - process. Use chumming techniques to lure these fish away from their hiding spots and rely on medium-grade tackle. Be patient while reeling them in and never underestimate their strength.
