The Great Tassie Tuna Takeover!

If you are looking to catch one of the strongest AND tastiest fish in the ocean, Mozza gives all the details!

Dart Bank 

Tim Lockley went down to Dart Bank for a look Saturday. There were a lot of boats trying their luck it was good to see all boats catching tuna. His daughter Takara got her first Bluefin and they got 4 all up. No lure preference.

Justin Rossitter got his first Bluefin on his 4.7m boat just off Waterfall bay, less than 1km from the boat ramp in Pirates bay

Adam Harwood and his crew nailed 4 tunas in quick succession in th middle of Munro’s bite Sunday and found the Zacatak smoka in Evil colour was the lure of preference.

East Coast

Mathew Howard had a ripper day out the narrows Saturday, with his ol man landing a nice Bluefin off pyramid rocks southern Maria on a bright pink skirt lure, also bagged out on flatty and managed 8 king flatty!

North East

On the shelf at St Helens fired on the weekend with some schools of decent sized school tuna up to 27kg, crews were finding 3-4-way hook ups were common. Young Molly Hammersly got her first un-assisted Bluefin coming in at 23kg and she is only 9 years old, fantastic effort especially in 25+knot winds

FLATHEAD
going well round Simpsons point down to satellite island in the Lower Channel, Gordon boat ramp jetty would be worth a try, on the tide change.
