Default Yellowfin Tuna: East Cost of Florida?

I just got back from Venice, LA and Capt Eddie Burger put us on 5 yellowfin tunas and new I'm hooked. 12 hour drive from Tampa to Venice, with a stop a stop at Harrah's casino for a break and fun.

1) I know Tuna is available on the east cost of Florida but how consistent is it? I'm trying to save time on driving but still have no issues driving to venice for guaranteed fish.

2) Best season for the Yellow fin on the east cost

3) What city on the eastcoast is better or are they all the same (Jacksonville, Daytona, Miami, etc?)

4) Any recommended captains

Thanks
Andy

I used to live near Port Canaveral and the people that went out for yf had to go to the "Other side" to get them. The "Other side" refers to the other side of the Gulf Stream. Out of Port Canaveral it was typically 100 miles or so. Captain Ed Dwyer of the "Ticket" was the person who pioneered that fishery out of Port Canaveral. I personally haven't fished with him due to finances but I haven't heard any bad reviews either. He does his "Other side" trips pretty much all summer.

I hope this helps.

You just got spoiled in Venice, La. It don't get no better for Tuna or offshore fishing in general out of South, LA.

Aquaholic,

Thanks for the info, Capt Dwyer is very costly, but some people have tons of money to burn for a great time, wish that was me. Will look for an alternate capt out in that area with the same reputation. Hopefully half the cost or else I guess i'll have to make that drive to venice, wasn't bad at all for the experience

I agree, that is why I haven't fished with him before. His prices are out there but if people will pay the price, he might as well charge it.
