Based on your location I have to assume you are looking for yellowfin. The birds you want to find would be the one, two or three frigates. They are usually over the bait that the tuna are driving up. You need an open array and at least 6kW or 12kW. I have yet to see a dome perform well enough to spot them at a distance that is useful. Even with a system that has a “magic” bird button.
