The 2016 tuna season in Portland, Australia, is off to a flyer and all of our first 3 charters of the season caught fish meaning we’re off to a cracking start and a 100% strike rate. We noticed a lot of the other boats coming in empty handed on a weekend that tends to be quite busy on the water with boats, so we’re pleased we caught as many as we did
The biggest fish reeled in was an 18kg Albacore which is a monster for that species in the waters off Portland. Typically they weight in at the 10kg range in this neck of the woods.
Next weekend we have some last minute spots available for Friday (1 April), Saturday (2 April) and Monday (4 April) – Get in quick before they book out and call the owner Steve on 0427 373 397
