Hi all , im new here . I have just got a new boat and would like tohave a try at Alungi fishing this year. So here are a few questions some of you might be so kind as to help me out with;

1. first of all what is the the Alunga in English ?!
2. What type of lures do you use?
3. What speed to trawl ?
4. how far out of the boat do you throw out the line?
5 . when does the season start exactly?
6. any other tips

Please excuse me but im a complete beginner in this area Sad

Hi Ciantar & welcome to the forum. If I were you I would first run a search on the forum as there is a wealth of information in older posts but I'll try to give you the information you require.
1. Albacore
2. Some people use hard lures like Yo-zuri or Rapala, others use soft lures
3. 7-8 knots
4. approx 25 meters
5. Depends on sea temperature but should be started by mid June
6. Try going through older posts Smiley

Ciantar: first of all good luck and have fun. Most important after catching the fish is how to take care of it, as it can make the difference between good eating and YUKK, also I would research how to cut and how to cook.....These can all be found in the forum posts.

Hi Cianter, welcome to the forum.  Alongi trolling has nearly become a national passtime.  For a comprehensive and complete info package on Albacore (Alongi) I would do as benri suggested and do a complete sweep of the forum..,  You'll find lots and lots of useful tips on tackle, trolling speed (e.g I like to use 6.8 - 7 knts in very calm conditions, and 6 - 6.2 in choppy conditions)  and 1,001 other tips and ideas here.  Good luck, and tight lines.

I'll be out 1st time for Alongi on Friday, weather reports are not that favourable, but we'll see.  Saturday also looks promising
