I found tuna favor smaller, short jigs in 6 - 10 oz with the length of 6 - 8 inches.
What is your favorite jigs for yft ? Blackfin can take any jigs thrown if not big enough. :)

Bret, nice selection of tuna jigs.

I am more comfortable here now as I can concentrate on talking about jigging and popping more as the other site is bombarded with promotional things too much recently. :)

What's your go-to jig if you want YFT at about 100 feet deep?
I am going to write up tuna jigging basics when I have time. It is pretty busy right now.

Here are a few jigs working for yft.
But there are many other excellent tuna jigs.



See how many hit this Sevenseas Hooker jig got from yft. :)

I like Andaman,Metalic Sardine,Hooker1, Hots Drift Tune...but my all time best has to be
8 0z. Diamond jig.
Hi John, nice to see you here. :smile:
I don't think any lure caught more tuna than 8 oz hammered diamond jigs.
Can you join the Hurricane Bank trip ? Just imagine to fish 100 - 300 lbs yellowfin tuna on jigs and poppers for four days day and night. :)

John, I am going to contact intenational jiggers like Mogi, Matsutani or Hiramatsu to join the trip once the trip is finalized.
We need jiggers of your caliber to represent the USA. :)
