Gibbs Tuna Candy Popper

The solid-birch Tuna Candy comes in 2- and 3-ounce sizes and boasts beefy 800-pound through-wired tuna-tested hardware

New Jersey and Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, tuna fanatics have been dialed in to popping bluefin and yellowfin tuna the last few years, and that explosive method has grabbed the attention of all the players on the tuna circuit. Now Gibbs Lures, famous for large wooden surf-style striped bass plugs and poppers, is entering the offshore ring with the Tuna Candy popper. The solid-birch Tuna Candy comes in 2- and 3-ounce sizes and boasts beefy 800-pound through-wired tuna-tested hardware, including a 350-pound Spro swivel, an Owner split ring and an Owner 7/0 offshore hook. The poppers are American-made, boasting durability, supreme aerodynamics and attractive action. Colors and patterns replicate 99.9 percent of the forage fish seen in New England, such as sand eels, baby herring, bunker and mackerel. Patterns include Blue Mack, Green Mack, Hickory Shad, Half Beak, Pearl and Ballyhoo. $30; www.gibbslures.com
