TUNA
PORTLAND
img
It was a good week for Red Hot Fishing Charters as Matty Harris boated his first barrel as skipper while at Portland on Friday. The crew had to fight in the dark as this beauty battled away for over 4 hours. Matty was definitely as stoked as his customers when their jumbo pulled the scales down to 141kg.

It was definitely cold over the course of the week but the tuna did not seem to mind aboard Matt Cini’s Reel Time Fishing Charters. Matt reports there were a crazy amount of school fish landed over the weekend which kept his clients quite busy!

Staff member, Don Newman and good mates, Dave Van Den Broak and Neil Cooper all ventured to Portland last week where they all managed to get stuck into some quality bluefin tuna. Don reports that all the fish were chock a block full of pilchards and weren’t too fussed hitting most X-raps and skirts.

BERMAGUI

Bluefin Tuna have continued off Bermagui this week when the weather permits anglers to head out. Earlier in the week, the bulk of the fish seem to be a bit further north, but this quality specimen was taken aboard Sea Borne and weighed in at 80kg. Everything is looking good temp and weather wise for this weekend and into next week. Stay tuned to our facebook page as staff member Scotty makes the trek to Bermi tomorrow (Friday) and goes toona hunting.

Alan Bonici has been putting in plenty of hours chasing bream from the Maribyrnong River and has definitely been reaping the rewards.

Good customer, Adam Blyth ventured over to the other side of town this week and fished the North Shore area where he picked up this 7kg beauty on squid.

Congratulations Adam, any snapper land-based is a good effort let alone this beast!
