After Dec. the sea is to rough and the tuna boats stop going out. They fish between Camiguin and Bohol in deep water when there is no moon out. I would love to go out fishing for these hogs, but not interested in small boats they use. These boats go out in the evening and return in the morning. I attached some pic's I took. Some of these Bad Boys were over 100 kilo

look like dog tooth yellows to me but could be wide eyed tuna

In Dumaguete market you will find a lot of frigate tuna (mackeral), 18-24 inches, and skipjack up to about 3 feet. Yellowfin is available too but not as plentiful, as it comes from farther offshore.

 

I think yellowfin is more common down south, Davao and GenSan...

 

Albacore rules!

can't be skipjacks at 3 feet that is huge

GenSan, Tuna Capital of the World.

The best of it is exported to Japan.
