yellowfin at rigs out of Dauphin Island?
Maybe headed out tomorrow with the improving sea conditions and was wondering if its worth it to go to the ram powell or any other rigs in the vicinity and try for tuna??? anyone have any advice
looked at hiltons and the altimetry looked bad but was hoping for some firsthand knowledge

Kind of sort of the tuna are there almost all year long somewhat regardless of water conditions. that being said it can certainly affect the tuna, but it is not as critical as with billfish. To me the most important thing this time of year is weather and seas as it can be a long cold boat ride!
If you go, you should be able to mark the fish on a bottom machine easily, you can jig to them and catch mostly blackfin or chunk or live bait for mostly (but far fewer yellowfin).

I second, MSYellowfin we pay more attention to the weather than the other things, not that they are not important but we normally catch fish
we jig up a few blackfins because they are abundant and chunk for the yellows but last trip I caught a yellow on a jig
lastly don't be afraid to switch methods, bigger bait chunks, adding a little weight to a freelines, I keep switching until I get bites and the other guys normally use conventional methods so it balances out

Ditto above and I will add; Don't just run straight to the ram, marlin, etc. Stop at Petronius, Spirit, etc... depending on what port you come from. These rigs hold plenty of tuna and for some reason are overlooked quite often.
Why go further if you don't have to?
