148kg Tuna Caught

What a phenomenal day!
Had a late bite on the bluefin on Monday, hooking up to 3 jumbo fish just before 3:00pm, but unfortunately losing 1 fish on the first run.
An hour or so in, it became apparent that these were no ordinary fish. At 4 hours and well into dark we finally managed to land the smaller of the two fish, weighing in at a whopping 148kg! The larger of the fish however just didn’t want to budge. At 5 hours we marked the fish at 20m but then suddenly It did a big run and was bitten off by a shark.
After such a long battle it was a bit devastating, but I think we can all say that we’re absolutely over the moon to have managed to land such an amazing fish out of the 3. This fish was also tagged & we look forward to finding out its story and sharing it with you.

Dolphin & Kingfish

With a few days of nice weather we were busy over the weekend kingfish a no show on Friday but dolphin fish making a welcomed appearance for us with 14 legal fish, not big only around the 70-75cm range but good fun on light gear! Saturday we saw 4-5 kingfish on both trips although not many fish better quality in the 80cm plus range, and finally Sunday things really kicked into gear with 15 legal Kingies the best around 90cm! A few quality kingfish around early again today but slower in general, see what the next few days brings
