Tuna Tubes Transom Packs

The ability to keep several large live baits swimming is a must for anyone serious about live bait fishing for marlin, big tunas, and a host of other species that require baits that will not survive in a typical live well. Tuna tubes are the most effective way to accomplish this feat. Keep your live bait tunas nice and lively, ready to deploy with the Hooker Electric Tuna Tubes.

Hooker Electric Tuna Tube Transom Packs are well known to be the best-performing tuna tubes. One of the larger reasons is our Tuna Tubes are full-length. There are no valves for individual tubes. This allows for better water flow while maintaining equal water supply to all tubes. Additionally, the installation of Tuna Tube transom packs is a lot simpler and faster than individual tubes.

Installation Considerations

Your Hooker Electric Tuna Tube water flow must flow straight, be non-turbulent, and spread across the entire fish’s head. The tuna opens his mouth when he wants to breathe, and the water flow shouldn’t power wash him in the face with unnecessary force. Sea chests and pump boxes are the two most effective ways to deliver the water to the tubes, though some captains have had success running the pick-up straight to an inline pump to supply the tubes directly.

Delivering the water from the pumps to the tubes should be straightforward and direct. Avoid 90-degree joints, as these contribute to loss of flow and increase the amount of turbulence and bubbles in the water supply. Keep in mind that different bait species have varying water flow requirements. Your tuna tube system should have variable flow options to optimize the ability to keep different species and sizes of baits alive.

Baits caught deep are at risk. Their body temperature rises during the struggle and dropping them in a tube with water several degrees -warmer than where they were caught compounds the problem. Keep ice-cold water bottles or jugs handy to help cool the water and keep baits frisky and alive.

Finally, the shape of the actual tuna tube can affect the longevity of your baits. While a circular tube can keep baits alive, the baits may tend to spin while immersed in a round tube with a high volume of water flow hitting them. Hooker Electric tuna tube systems are designed with oval-shaped tubes to prevent the bait from spinning, creating a system that can keep baits alive and frisky for extended periods of time.
