The most common fish we use for live bait here in Australia when targetting tuna or marlin is slimmey mackeral, small skipjack tuna, or yellowtail yakkas.
We also use mullet for targeting other sportsfish....but not trolled

What live fish you use as a 'live bait' will depend on what you are targeting.
You are best catching your 'live bait' from the area you intend to fish, as this is what your targeted species are feeding on, and you will get the best results.
Good luck
