Default Casting to Cape cod BFT

So been trolling for these fish primarily but had the opportunity a couple times to cast at them. Just looking to pick up a few lures for doing this. Have a orca and some ocea pencils. I don't think a strategic angler plug is in the cards for me yet but looking to pick your brains a bit as to what I should have in case I get into them again. Thanks.

Ron-Z! I never had a tuna fish turn one down. In my opinion leave all the fancy stick baits at home and use either a white, silver, or pink Ron-Z. Cast it into the school and reel it back as fast as you can.

I always let one drift out behind the boat while casting too...

Siren Bolt 160 sinks and gets below the birds - Fantastic lures. I've never had luck with Ron Z's - I don't know why ….but my new thing thats been real hot is an 8" Savage Gear Sand eel blue/silver color . Caught a 69" fish last Sunday .

Good stuff. Thanks guys. Any weight size on the ronz? Also are your guys using stock trebles or putting singles on the stick baits? Can't be the same hooks on the savage that come stock as I've bent those in the canal on stripers... Is there a new line of them out.

This coming from the guy using the fancy LMB lures these days?

I guess I can no longer comment on the dozens of school bluefin my crew and I caught just a few short years ago?
The Ron-Z was my goto. We never caught anything on the fancy, expensive plugs. My other reason for liking the Ron-z was that it served the purpose of two different baits. It could be cast at breaking fish and worked back to the boat and also dropped on deep fish and jigged. We would consistently hook up doing both.

What Dan said.

Ron Z's are great. I am also trying the new Hogy lures this year. Not much success as of yet, but the season is not over !!!

Just as much if not more then the lures I used when tuna fishing. The only thing that cost less since switching from saltwater to freshwater fishing has been the boat!
