The south west alliance game fishing challenge over the last 2 weekends out of Port Fairy and Warrnambool saw over 100 fish caught from 7 boats with 82 tagged, mostly albacore and bluefin, a couple of makos and blue sharks and a couple of striped tuna as well. Congratulations to Ashley Dance winner of champion angler title and skipper of champion boat “Intruder”, and Peter Goode with most meritorious capture, a 17.55kg bluefin on 6kg. Great tournament.
Adrian Azzopardi fished with his mate Simon abella and little cousin Michael off Portland, catching 14 albies, 2 at 18kg, and 6 bluefin plus dropped many more. It was Michael’s first time on the tuna and albacore so smiles all round!
