Don't pull out the camera if someone on your boat hooks a bluefin. These fish are divers, not jumpers. They feed near the surface, but quickly sound when hooked. Typical bluefin fights can last more than half an hour on 130-pound gear. Captains will blind-troll or sight-fish large, rigged mullet, mackerel, flying fish, squid, or lures. It's also common to chunk for bluefin when they are in a finicky mood.
