PAUL’S FISHING
img
Well, yet another quick trip down to Tasmania has definitely paid off for Paul and this time jumbo bluefin tuna were the target! Paul and the crew of young guns, Locki Nicols (17), India Thompson (17) and Chloe Hammersley (15) tagged and released this monster estimated at over 150kg! Paul had a definite fight on his hands which was stretched out for almost 4 hours on the Talica 50 and one of the new arrival Terez fully rollered bent butts which definitely held up to the test! It is fantastic to see a fish of this caliber tagged and swimming away, love ya work Paul!
