As promised in the January 2014 feature, “11 of the World’s Best Fishing Spots,” in Sport Fishing magazine, here are 10 of the top spots in the world to catch a huge tuna. Of course “huge” varies per species; a 350-pound yellowfin is as huge for that species as is a 1,000-pounder for bluefin. Also, note that these are not offered as “the ten best spots” in the world, but rather, 10 of the best. Big difference. These are not ordered by rank, but arbitrarily and randomly.And there are lots of other candidates, of course, such as Kona, Rodrigues Island, the Azores, Ivory Coast, Canary Islands and more.
The IGFA all-tackle record bluefin just four pounds shy of 1,500 was caught off Nova Scotia; many granders-plus are caught (and mostly released) each season here and off neighboring PEI.
