The Tuna Flare is an excellent choice for a skirt over your ballyhoo when you are trolling for tuna, mahi, and other pelagic species. The Fish DownSea Tuna Flare easily allows up to 400# leader to pass through it. The eyes are key for predators to hone in on their prey and the eyes on the tuna flares our eyes stand out to help get that bite! They are weighted just right with the 2 ounce and 4 ounce lead heads allowing them to have a skip and swim action that tuna and other pelagics can't resist. Measures out at 7.5 inches long.


This Tuna Flare comes with a black head, Black and Purple hair with flash, and a black and purple inner squid skirt.


Be sure to choose from the drop down menu if you want 2 ounce or 4 ounce size.

Black and Purple Tuna Flare

  • Best when rigged with 130-220# fluorocarbon leader with a, 8/0-10/0 hook (preferably Mustad 7691) and a 1/4-3/4 ounce chin weight for the ballyhoo (preferably medium to horse size ballyhoo depending on what size fish you are targeting).

    The larger hole in the head of our 2oz Tuna Flares allow you to easily switch out colors throughout the day on your rigs since they can pass over top of a loop connection or most wind on swivel.
