    First...they bite best early and late in the day...possibly all day on very cloudy or rainy days
    Second ...they have great vision ...use the lightest fluro leader your comfortable with 30# or 40#
    Third with any type of fishing match the hook size to the bait size
    Fourth...if you troll for them [following fast moving birds] troll the edges of the diving birds with tiny artificials bait best and if you can chum with live pilchards or at least chunks of bait [ aka chunking]
    Sixth ..usually found 100' - 300' depth
    Seventh...always want current...if none consider moving
    Lastly...clean dark blue water best like the Gulfstream edge 
    ..and when you land them bleed them immediately for best eating later on...cut  thru their gills or insert your knife behind their pectoral fin and ice them down  ASAP.

    Good luck.
