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 leader to pass through it. The eyes are key for predators to hone in on their prey and the eyes on the tuna flares are epoxied into the head as is the hair making the tuna flares durable enough to withstand one aggressive bite after the next. They are lightweight skirts allowing them to have a skip and swim action that tuna and other pelagics can't resist.
Best when rigged with 80-130# fluorocarbon leader with a 7/0-9/0 hook (preferably Mustad 7691) and a 1/2-1.5 ounce chin weight for the ballyhoo (preferably medium to horse size ballyhoo depending on what size tuna you are targeting).
This Tuna Flare comes in Black and Purple.
