Yesterday aboard Cassius Cray we launched out of Warrnambool but ended up between Julia Percy Island and Port Fairy based on reports from the day before, with tuna from 43-47m, plenty of surface action but they were quite finicky, only ending up with 3 small school-size tuna.  Word was that they were right on the go earlier on in the day in that area.  The fourth photo below is the catch from another boat off Port Fairy yesterday.  As we came back into Warrnambool, just out the front of Lady Bay, there were heaps of birds sitting on the water, which according to one onlooker had been diving throughout the day, and with his binoculars from the breakwater he had seen tuna busting the surface.  They were in that close a couple of years ago, so it would not surprise.  Portland seemed to have reports mostly of school size tuna as well yesterday.IMG_4911 IMG_4914 IMG_694410170862_10154083505345333_6647479830016517525_n
