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.13202_10206505631466652_6083055816509626352_n

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!IMG_6956

Jan and Goodey did well again today too. 10438891_10200266860910165_6237768751333499726_n 11053360_10200266860710160_483858810368049921_n
