Scup for tuna bait

Have leard lots of talk of this over the last few years but have never tried it. Has anyone had first hand experience with live scup for tuna bait and if so the results vs macs/pogies etc thanks.

Used to use them for casting to white marlin, I can't see why they wouldn't work for tuna. Nice and silvery just like butterfish.

Big tuna will even hit on dog-fish. They are apex preditors they eat almost anything.

My Greek buddies would rather eat scup than BFT! But wait, they eat my left over bait anyways: macs, pollack, whatever.....

Given the diversity of the human species, there is no “normal” human genome sequence. We are all mutants.
