There are a few ways, try the search key.

My favorite, because it seems the easiest for my lazy arse is to use a chum churn and chunk. After I see the bonita come up I try to cast past them.

It seems to me anyways that after the bonita show up the BFT is just past them. Never caught a YFT so can't help you there.

It normally takes about 40 sec. of good chum churning then hit the churn about every 2 minutes with 2 or 3 good hits. After about 15 minutes the fish show up.

Default Tuna

This time of year, we anchor in 180ft. of water southwest on the edge and start chumming and chunking. It is inevitable that blackfins will show up several times a day while doing this. It is also common to catch wahoo right now doing the same thing. We like to chunk and chum with shredded bonita and small LYs or menhaden.
