Yellowfin Tuna in the Gulf

Let’s go fishing! Yellowfin Tuna are abundant in the Gulf Stream.

It’s prime yellowfin tuna month in the Gulf Stream off the North Carolina coast. If you only looked at the ads for North Carolina sportfishing or the fishing tournament schedule, you may assume billfishing is the best in fishing action.

But yellowfin tuna is the most popular catch for offshore North Carolina anglers, and for good reason—yellowfins are great tasting.

Put your drag setting to good use because catch restrictions allow anglers to take home a generous amount. Sport fishing enthusiasts are not limited to going out with the big boys; anglers can bring home a decent size catch in center consoles, too.
