In this video, we join Capt. Rob Lowell of Cape Cod Offshore Charters for a day of Run N' Gun style tuna fishing out East of Cape Cod. With greasy calm conditions, the name of the game was utilizing a Run N' Gun style approach to quickly get in range of short-lived surface feeds. The lure of choice was the 4oz Hogy Protail Paddle. The subtle action of this swimbait proved effective when fished on a high-speed retrieve.
When tuna are quickly feeding on scattered bait near the surface, deploying the Protail Paddle Swimbait is an excellent method for quick response casting using a high speed, sub-surface retrieve. Cast along the outside edges of feeding schools, keep your rod tip low and begin retrieving the swimbait at a steady, fast speed.
