|Hooked-Up on a Longtail Tuna|
I have an abundance of species at the top of my bucket list, but time and time again I find myself fighting these unbelievably strong fishing fish with amazing endurance. Longtail Tuna will be sure to give you a huge length of action.
I targeted Longtail Tuna on various DUO topwater lures. High speed retrieves with DUO Pressbait 85's and Pressbait 125 HD's. The darting motion that these two topwater lures give off is irregular and had the Tuna scooting right to the boat.

The Pressbait 85 lure by DUO became a lure that was swallowed by Tuna when they tended to only feed on smaller slim profiled bait. Anyone that reads my blogs know that this top water lure is so versatile and i use it for just about all Pelagic species I target.

|Pressbait 125 HD by DUO is a size above the Pressbait 85, It too proved it's purpose amongst the Longtails.|

This Beachwalker Axion is DOA0271 Sparkling Crown colour and is essentially a top water lure that can have many actions. A slow retrieve will give it a constant tail wobble, The sink retrieve action working the rod tip up and down or the way I tend the use it at fast retrieve that gives it the flash effect as it scatters the surface.

I ended up hooking one of those Bronze Whaler Sharks that kept taking our fish.
