How To: Run N' Gun Tuna Fishing | Casting Protail Swimbaits


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.

Swimbait Surface Tuna Casting Diagram

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.
