Travis Mercieca caught this 66.7kg tuna off Portland, in about 360m depth to the east today. Interesting to see a few of these mid-range size fish between 40-80 kg’s, compared to other years when it’s mostly either sub-30kgs or 80+ kg barrels.
Sean Blake is pictured here with one of their 5 tuna caught in a 2 hour session off Port Fairy this morning. He reports plenty of birds and fish in close, the tuna heaps more aggressive than they have been recently. All caught on the surface – check out his home-made stick bait!
