The crew of Intruder over at Port MacDonnell today went chasing a mako, there were a few caught over there but not by them, however they had some ripper catches off the bottom, pictured is Ashley Dance with a 3.3kg snapper and a nice schoolie, as is Kev McLoughlin.  No barrels that we know of over there, and a little patchy on the school tuna with a few coming in.  Similar story at Portland, with some having no problems finding good numbers of school size tuna and others missing out together, a barrel lost after an hour’s fight early in the day, and report of one being fought tonight off Cape Nelson.

At lunchtime today, no barrels yet but Richo in the Seacruiser 7000HT has found school-size tuna in 50m off Warrnambool, and hadn’t seen another boat yet – compared with the second photo which is at Portland this morning – unprecedented queues for a weekday!  They ended up with their bag and missed a few as well.  Dave and Melissa Magilton also did well on the tuna out at the shelf off Warrnambool today.IMG_489410311741_731321556920390_4890660636049613079_n
