Tuna fishing is one of the most enjoyable yet challenging sports on the water. Hauling in large tuna is both exciting and can bring in some of the most appetizing seafood around. This sport, however, takes unbending patience, so having the right boat can make a big difference between success and failure. In this post, we’ll highlight some key features to look for in a great tuna boat as well as showcase some of the top tuna fishing boats for sale from Scout.
Tuna fishing occurs in some of the deepest and roughest waters on the planet, so you need to be prepared with a boat that is large enough to handle heavy waves and chop. A tuna boat needs good size and should be at least 30 feet in length, if not more.
Most tuna fishing is done with live bait. This means you will either have to visit the bait shop before you go fishing or you’ll have to catch the bait yourself. Be sure you have a boat with a large bait well so you can keep baitfish alive through your entire trip.
Tuna fishing is done in offshore locations that can take hours to reach. It’s also common for tuna anglers to spend days or even a full week on the water. For this reason, you need to ensure that your boat is comfortable and spacious enough for an enjoyable experience.
