Deepwater Cape Cod Bluefin On Poppers

Capt. Mike Hogan shares an epic day of Cape Cod tuna action using the Charter Grade Popper with Capt. Rob Lowell. In this video, he covers multiple retrieve styles for fishing the popper for tuna holding down deep, and his favorite spinning setups.

DEEP WATER TUNA ON POPPERS DIAGRAM

APPROACH:

1. Once the surface activity has been located, slowly motor to the outside edge of the feeding area, making sure to quietly approach the school.

2. Make a long cast towards the outside edge of the surface activity.

3. Use a slow, sharp twitching motion for surface popping action. Utilize occasional 5-10 second pauses for finicky fish.

TIPS:

1. When tuna are spread out and holding deep working poppers on the surface can bring them up from the depths.

2. Use a variety of retrieves from a slow pop and stop, to a fast “scoot” and walk the dog style retrieve.

3. Heavy 7” 3.5oz Charter Poppers offer excellent long range casting distance that allows the angler to cover a lot of ground quickly.
