A Brief Introduction to the Blackfin Tuna

The blackfin tuna is frequently found across Florida in various areas, such as the Florida Keys and the northeastern bluewater ledges. There is a wealth of information about them, such as the fish’s preferred bait, which is comprised of names like ballyhoo and live sardines. Let’s explore some additional facts about this sea dweller.
Blackfin tuna, for starters, prefer to hang around waters where the temperature ranges from 71 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Although they tend to swim at depths of about 187 feet below the water surface, regular diving to depths of over 650 feet is common. Normally, during the daylight hours, blackfins stick to deeper depths, only ascending to shallower depths when dusk arrives. While there is no specific reason why blackfin tuna continues to display this activity, it may be that the fish prefers to find a spot it likes and remain there.
If you want to try and catch some blackfin tuna, book your THERAPY-IV fishing experience today.

Are You Going Deep Sea Fishing? Here’s What to Wear

South Florida isn’t known for its cool weather, but if you're heading out for a fishing charter in the morning, there is the rare chance the climate may be on the cool side. On the other hand, on the way to the docks, you may already notice how muggy it is. Since there is the possibility the weather may be unpredictable, it might be a good idea to dress in layers. Again, the weather will most likely remain warm during your Miami Beach fishing trip, but at least this way you can remove or add clothing depending on how you feel.
On particularly sunny days, protective headgear can help. In other words, consider wearing a hat. Besides sunburn, too much exposure to the rays of the sun on your head may lead to headaches or other heat-related issues. On that note, sunglasses are great for protecting your eyes from UV rays as well as the sometimes blinding reflections of the sun against the water.
Finally, don’t forget the sunscreen! It’s still possible to get burned even if the day is cloudy. A product with an SPF of at least 30 should be enough.
