Tackle Tip Thursday Vol. 233 (Drop-shot Rig)

May 16th, 2024|Captain Mike's Blog, Tackle Tip Thursday|

Happy Tackle Tip Thursday!

Steve Carson, pro-staffer with Penn Fishing, showcases a good outfit to have and a technique to become familiar with before targeting bigger-size bluefin tuna. 

This requires an angler to select and use an outfit with heavy line, and a circle hook and sinker to reach fish when at depth and when live bait is working best.

Thank you to Steve for his time and experience in all things having to do with saltwater angling and Penn Fishing Tackle!
