my two recent ones came off of the fusilor color (mahi color) but I've heard pink/chrome is hot too. As I mentioned earlier, your equipment is a bit light if you hook a 75+lb yellowfin. A Daiwa BG6500 is only about $120 and loaded with 65-80lb braid can handle most yellowfin in the gulf.

What rod would you recommend to go with that Daiwa BG6500?

an excellent entry level tuna rod is the OTI OceanXtreme 40-60#.
Well-priced quality rod that will last you forever & can kill all but the largest models of YFT you'll find in the gulf.

Ah, but will it tame the legendary barracuda?
