I've been wanting a Big Tuna since they first came out, just haven't bit the bullet yet. I was wondering, of those that have or have had them, how many have used Tuna Tank for live bait and did it do well for that purpose?
I like the versatility of the yak for solo and tandem, but also like the idea of being able to put some shad in there to taunt the striper with.

I mainly use mine for a cooler for keeping fish. Didn't want to drill holes in it for that reason. It would be difficult for me to catch a minnow in there. Remember in Solo config it is under your seat and out in front of you in tandem. The tuna tank is a cool concept.... after that I don't know. I do like the yak

I had a Big Tuna a few years back and used the tank for a live well. It worked great for that concept, still very accessible in either solo or tandem set ups. I ended up selling it and getting a Hobie PA 12, the Big Tuna was too much to handle on even a 10mph breeze in the bay, would just ware you out trying to keep a pace going into the wind.
