Young Xavier Ellul fishing with his old man caught a nice dolphinfish off Portland today, along with good numbers of tuna and albacore.1610032_10153347943337588_5571483069063882829_n IMG_4973 10288741_10153347943502588_5403072051547262507_n

Off Port Fairy in close there was plenty of visual activity with birds working and tuna busting the surface, but as has been the story all week they were quite finicky – Ashley Dance & crew caught just the one, as did Andrew Westlake fishing with Matt, Jarrod and Damian.  Their one took a Pakula Micro Uzi in clear blue colour.  Ashley had a bottom drop and caught a small Tassie Trumpeter as well.  Simon Craven (pictured below) with Ash Pilkington told a similar story.IMG_4971 IMG_4974
