    The Hundred Year "Flying Tuna" Invasion!

  7. Michaelfh 570 on August 25, 2021 at 5:23 pm

    I’m planning on moving to San Diego and am trying to save up to get some good set ups for the tuna how much money do you think is needed to get a few combos

  8. Snags N Drags Fishing on August 25, 2021 at 5:26 pm

    What would you recommend floro for a coltsniper jerk bait or mono

  9. JJ gibcasting on August 25, 2021 at 5:27 pm

    Let’s go fishing 🎣

  10. Cryzen Doronio on August 25, 2021 at 5:29 pm

    Do you think a penn fierce 3 5000 will handle a tuna?

  11. Ivo Simovic on August 25, 2021 at 5:29 pm

    Is it also possible to catch bluefin by trolling deep divers and skirts?

  12. Arnie Centeno on August 25, 2021 at 5:29 pm

    For the 40NLD set up I can’t find the Penn Carnage rod or the Penn Ally rod you recommended on another video. Any other recommendations for a rod to match the 40NLD reel setup?

  13. Aaron Aguileras on August 25, 2021 at 5:30 pm

    Whos watching this in prep for The insane 2021 Bluefin Bite!!!!

  14. Pain Ping on August 25, 2021 at 5:31 pm

    What’s the cost of those 3 rods, and can you send me the length and size of those rods please?

  15. Mike P on August 25, 2021 at 5:32 pm

    Great informative video Ali.

  16. Mark Baytan on August 25, 2021 at 5:32 pm

    Great insight here. One adjustment I’d make is to not go full braid to flouro. My bite ratio increased when using braid as backing and going with 100yrd top shot of 40lb co polymer then flouro. Tight lines.

  17. Snags N Drags Fishing on August 25, 2021 at 5:35 pm

    What do you think of the Okuma Cortez

  18. Greg Shade on August 25, 2021 at 5:36 pm

    I do not care how small your bait is, DO NOT USE A 1/0 demon perfect circle hook, a few days ago I was hooked to a 90-100 bluefin and it bent off in seconds, please for the love of god do not use a 1/0 hook.

  19. GENO D on August 25, 2021 at 5:39 pm

    What you think of the shimano speed master 2 20 model

  20. CKDfishing TV on August 25, 2021 at 5:39 pm

    65lb braid line can handle a 100 pound tuna right

  21. Colin Dean on August 25, 2021 at 5:39 pm

    I got a Spinfisher 10,500 and penn and penn carnage 2 6’ heavy rod what size tuna u think I can get on it?

  22. Cape Fox on August 25, 2021 at 5:40 pm

    Is a 15 size reel like the Squall or Fathom loaded with about 300 yards of 50 lb braid and a 30 lb fluoride leader in a 30-60 rated rod too light for flylining and surface irons to tuna?

  23. Leonard Lucios Cordeiro Kusdra on August 25, 2021 at 5:40 pm

    Dear MR my englis is not so good, i fishing tuna in Panamá and i use Spinning Reel Daiwa BG 8000 and Casting reel Lexa 400, i love Casting reel but Lexa is too small to Panamá big tuna, id like to know is you use Penn Fatthon to cast popper?

  24. niteride on August 25, 2021 at 5:41 pm

    Ali I have a Penn 40nld2 with a 60lb 7/8" Graftech rod will that cut it with the larger tunas?

  25. Mark Wilson on August 25, 2021 at 5:41 pm

    My name is Marco my fish in the Baja for 35 years this man knows what he’s talking about good video

  26. Colin McGuire on August 25, 2021 at 5:41 pm

    Do a video on how to troll for bluefin

  27. Cape Fox on August 25, 2021 at 5:43 pm

    Hi, Ali, what model rod do you have paired to that Slammer III spinning reel?

  28. RobFred on August 25, 2021 at 5:43 pm

    Thanks Ali. Enjoy watching your TV show with Rush on all your travels…

  29. Bradley Sabosky on August 25, 2021 at 5:44 pm

    is 16 pounds of drag enough for a 20 pound bluefin

  30. Robert Guzman on August 25, 2021 at 5:44 pm

    You definitely have to add those colt snipers they kill those blue fins in SD

  31. MrJesus100 on August 25, 2021 at 5:45 pm

    Good tips just that most guys should have at least 50 yards of mono on top of their braid especially on a sportboat. Few reasons you have some stretch between you and the fish and your hook is farther from your very visible braid. I work on sportboats and so many of the guys that are great fisherman I know that fish those tuna on long range all fish 50 yards of mono and 90% of the time out fish guys especially in pick bites. If they’re eating wide open it doesn’t seem to matter. I’m not a fluoro guy for that stuff just use izorline first string in clear blue and I do very well

  32. Cape Fox on August 25, 2021 at 5:46 pm

    Ali, your videos get to the point and you know your stuff. Thanks.

  33. Diamond on August 25, 2021 at 5:49 pm

    Very helpful video 👍

    I’m looking to get a lefty reel for big fish 80-130 rod. Do you think the penn fathom 30 will get the job done? Unfortunately they don’t make a lefty fathom 40nld. And there are very few big game lefty reels.

  34. muoi v hoang on August 25, 2021 at 5:50 pm

    Penn ròd is heavyweight

  35. Blake Furuike on August 25, 2021 at 5:52 pm

    I swear I watch this video before every time I go offshore lol

  36. Bharat ch Brahma on August 25, 2021 at 5:52 pm

    I like your video please give me a big fish fishing rod

  37. Nelson alvarez on August 25, 2021 at 5:52 pm

    Hey I have a penn fathom 30ld narrow well the same ones you got but mines a 30, with a penn carnage 2 jigging rod it’s goes from 5-8oz , what can I use it for bait fishing to is the setup good ?

  38. E Davis on August 25, 2021 at 5:56 pm

    I see you are pumping Penn rods, here it is, their reels are tough but the rods suck . 55 years blue water under my belt bro!!!

  39. Cape Fox on August 25, 2021 at 5:58 pm

    My jig outfit is a Penn Spinfisher VI 8500 and 450 yards of 80 lb braid on a Rampage 6 ft rated for 80-130 lbs. Despite its short length, I can toss a Tady 45 about 40 -50 yards out. Is anyone else using an XH Muskie rod to toss surface irons and fly-line for yellowtail and smaller tuna?

  40. Jim & Loretta Torrens on August 25, 2021 at 5:59 pm

    Great job

  41. Jabulani Barber on August 25, 2021 at 5:59 pm

    how does 30lb line handle the fish

  42. Salty Girl Fishing on August 25, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    Ali can you do a review of what’s the best knots to tie for this seasons bluefin? Or if you have point me in the direction of the vid to watch

  43. Austin Burcham04 on August 25, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    What type of carnage rod was the first rod?

  44. Josh Anderson on August 25, 2021 at 6:03 pm

    Thanks for sharing. What rod do you like to pair with the Penn Slammer? Thanks

  45. Rogelio Ocon on August 25, 2021 at 6:03 pm

    what are your waters

  46. Studio Rental on August 25, 2021 at 6:05 pm

    Hey. The Penn Ally with a hard plastic handle is an awesome rod? I bought one based on your recommendation here. Lol. It has a hard plastic handle where every other decent rod is foam or cork or wrap or whatever. Lmao. I’ll be returning this. Thanks bro for the hard plastic handled rod recommendation. Sheesh. What else is complete sponsor bologna?

  47. Ali Shifau on August 25, 2021 at 6:05 pm

    very informative…thank you so much
    am from Maldives ….
    i want by good fly rod…and a rod for blue fin tuna ….or nyt fishing
    can you give me som more tips….plx

  48. David Arriaga on August 25, 2021 at 6:06 pm

    The heavier spinning rod set up should only be about 7’ right? Wouldn’t 8’6 be to big for a heavier set up?

  49. David Dennis on August 25, 2021 at 6:12 pm

    How would these handle trolling if I switched up the rod

  50. Captain Newman on August 25, 2021 at 6:13 pm

    Nice job. Great content and presentation in short video. Keep em coming.
