I have a few top water lures I think should work, but was wondering if there's a go to lure for blackfin. Were making a run to Boomvang Sat. night. I'm coming through Houston fri. so I can stop for tackle if anybody can help me with this. Thanks

When I went to Venice, A buddy of mine had a flying fish lure, crazy bird I think it was called, that was probably supposed to be used for trolling, but we were casting it and using a fast retrieve while drifting the floaters. Several Blackfin and one Yellowfin was caught on that lure. A couple of fish were even caught on poppers. Basically I think (i'm not an expert) anything that makes a ruckess on top of the water, while the Tuna are jumping out of the water, will cause a strike.

If you want them on topwaters, I like the smaller Yo-zuri's, Hydro Tiger I think is what they are called.

For Jigging? The diamond jig is always right on! Just as good, in my book, is the Williamson Benthos in a 5oz, Blue and Silver or Pink and White!

Good luck

Thanks for all the info. on this, I looked up some of the poppers you gave me and it looks just like some of the ones I all ready have. I'm going to get a few more and with the diamond jigs I have, should be good to go.
