Catching a bluefin tuna on a topwater plug is arguably the most heart-pounding and adrenaline-pumping fishing experience on Earth!

Fortunately we are blessed on Cape Cod with an amazing tuna fishery, and we still have the best part of the tuna fishing season yet to come.

  1. Thanks for the great article. I bought a setup last year to enhance our odds of catching a BFT while trolling. I had such an opportunity yesterday while trolling through Jefferies Ledge. I can tell you there was never a time that I had more adrenaline pumping while tuna fishing than yesterday. IT WAS GREAT, however we were unsuccessful. The advice I got was that the lure did not matter when the tuna were feeding in such a frenzy. After yesterday I am ready to soundly reject that advice. The lure needs to match what they are feeding on. I had several good casts and I could swear that there were at least 2 or 3 occasions where I saw a fish look at my lure and keep swimming past. If I had to guess what they were feeding on, I’d say maybe bunker? Anyways, sorry for the long comment- Thanks!

  2. Tip 11. If you are 60 years old or older, have a younger person with you. I am good for ten minutes with these incredible fish and then have to pass the rod. Guaranteed the most exciting fishery in our area. Thank you Chris and Ryan.

    1. I think it’s definitely a good idea to have at least 3 able body folks onboard when targeting tuna with the spinning rod. Nobody wants to fight a fish on their own for hours on end. Not good for the the fish, or your lower back!

  3. Great info Ryan and Chris! thanks for sharing!!!

    1. No problem! Chris did a great job writing that PDF guide. 👍
