Wild Topwater Bluefin Tuna Feeds | August 17th, 2019

Ryan Collins

This past Saturday August 17 myself, captain Cullen of Cape Star and MFCC members Jim Murphy and Cal Wheaton met at 5AM to go hunting for bluefin tuna off Cape Cod.

The plan was to hopefully locate some wild topwater feeds and cast swimming lures to school bluefin tuna in the 50-65 inch range.

The trip was fast-paced and pretty intense. The tunas were busting like crazy on the surface chasing bait but they were incredibly finicky and difficult to fool.

  3. Exciting trip! I have seen you cut of the tail before but I havent seen you cut off the head? What’s the reason? Does it help bleed out the fish?

    1. Removing the head helps the tuna fit into the ice chest, plus we can stuff ice down its body cavity to help cool it down.

      Glad you enjoyed the video!
