“Run and Gun” Bluefin Tuna Fishing with Team GOOSE

Ryan Collins

In this video I am fishing with the team from the Goose Hummock Shops in Orleans and Dennis. We are on Phil Howarth's 39 foot Contender fishing for "football" size bluefin tuna off Cape Cod.

The day started flat calm with beautiful conditions. About an hour in we were hailed on the VHF radio and needed to assist a boat in distress! 

We towed the boat, passed them off to the Coast Guard, and then managed to catch 2 hard fighting bluefin tunas before a gale started blowing over Cape Cod. The ride home was rough, plowing through 6 foot seas into a 30knot wind. 


BIG KUDOS to Tyler Adams from the Goose Hummock for contributing much of the footage used in this video! I also had a great time fishing with Viktar and Passah from Edged Up Fishing!

  1. Thats awesome. You expect these fish to stick around past this blow? Thinking of making the drive up to catch the thursday-friday weather window.

    1. Yes I’d expect them to stick around. I know there were fish out there today but they were super finicky and nobody could hook them.

      In years past I’ve hooked school size tuna as late as the first week of December. I know sometimes there are tuna around at Christmas. Only problem is the weather!

  2. Great day it looks like!
    Who is the Russian guy on the crew?

    1. That would be Viktar and his friend Passah. You can see more of Viktar’s fishing adventures on his Instagram page 👉🏻Edged Up Fishing

  3. Great video Ryan! Looks like a blast out there! I bet those steaks were delicious! Nice job giving those guys a tow too!

    1. The tuna was delicious, and it’s a blast catching the small tunas on spinning tackle!
