Another great weekend’s fishing in the south-west! Tuna continue to be in their thousands in close at all ports.
Ashley Dance and crew were in by midday on Saturday, having tagged and released 5 tuna and keeping one for a feed. They were in 50m off Port Fairy, around 38 31S 142 12E. Marty and young Xavier Ellul bagged out on tuna to the east of Warrnambool on Saturday.
Andrew Westlake, fishing with his son Jarrod, and Roy, got their 6 tuna off Port Fairy on Saturday, including Jarrod’s first.
Antony Ljubic was bottom fishing in 40m off Warrnambool, and while things were very slow on the bottom, tuna were busting up around him so he caught one on his way in.
Jason Magilton caught the first tuna for his boat in only 30m off Warrnambool.
Carn Taylor continued his good form after the sword fish a couple of weeks ago with this 118kg mako on 15kg line at Port Mac.
Rhooky and Youngy had a mixed bag, including this 53cm whiting.
