Everyone wondered where all the tuna would be after the horrid stretch of weather we’ve had. As it turns out, they were off all ports from Warrnambool to Port MacDonnell.
Off Warrnambool one boat reported that they were spread out over a huge area both east and west from 40-50m, but flighty and dissipating schools that were hard to tempt. They also did some bottom fishing for several nice snapper to 50cm. Al Sharp is pictured with one caught 3km south of the breakwater.IMG_7461
Jimmy Taylor fished solo off Port Fairy and ended up landing 5 from 7 including landing 3 from a 4-way hookup! Most released obviously. Another local boat caught 20-odd for the day!IMG_7458
The Portland cleaning tables are again back to normality with plenty of tuna being filleted, the action was apparently better in close as opposed to the shelf where some found it slow.IMG_7460
Marty Ellul and Paul Hourmourzis (and sons – pictured) headed to Port Mac and had their bag by 8:30am so things haven’t slowed over the border either.IMG_7459

John Cahill was straight in to the tuna in close off Port Fairy this morning, The Jaks Bay Zeus lure doing well.  Yesterday saw tuna caught between Lawrence Rock and Cape Bridgewater in 50-70m at Portland.11160675_1644323025785776_3369618335253638021_n 11061282_1644304949120917_2418731709775175080_n
