We run 12 feet of Fluoro on all of our rigged lures or skirted baits when not fishing for Wahoo. Each person has their own preference.

I caught a YF few weeks ago on my planer rod with #9 wire😂 but seriously if I was tuna fishing I typically just run floro on my sea witch rigs

YFT will hit anything, but your best bet is flourocarbon. Size depends on where you are fishing. For OBX tuna, we use 130# flouro and a 7/0 to 9/0 tuna hook (the barb is angled towards the shank).
