Swimbaits for Bluefin Tuna on Butterfish

We head to the outer-cape targeting late season Bluefin Tuna keyed in on small butterfish. Capt. Mike Hogan and John Burns spend the morning working schools of breaking fish with heavy spinning gear, using the UV Infused 5oz Pro Tail Paddle Swimbait. During greasy calm conditions, like we had on this morning, a slower stop-and-drop surface retrieve was able to trigger the bite.

Butterfish were the primary forage.
