Man, I sure wish I could help you with this but that is why I go fishing w/Capt Josh. The only thing I know about tuna fishing is that it's a blast and that's why I keep going back for more.

Welcome to the SaltyCajun.

Watch the weather.....I think its gonna be nasty this weekend. Fouchon is tough sometimes. Run for deep water, stop at some shrimp boats on the way. Water must be blue!!! Pick a floater and head to it, circle it a few times to see what's under it. Try jigging and trolling it.........sometimes they will push the bait off the floater a good ways, so always look for nervous water. Set up a drift and freeline cut bait......

Bring something to "trade" if you hit a shrimp boat and get as much if thier cull as you can for chum. Pull up behind the shrimp boat and drop some cull and see what comes up.
