Caught just South of Caloundra from a Kayak! Well done guys and thank you for sharing. We are very excited for the tuna season to begin, although plenty of you have been catching Mactuna and the odd Longtail throughout the winter season!
There is one week left in the Tuna Derby 2015!! Get on the water when you can. We still have bookings available for the last week, so book now on firstname.lastname@example.org or (07) 5444061 if you'd like to get out there!
Dan was on the boat again today and was puffing a celebratory cigar by 8am! He managed a large 14-15kg Longtail Tuna in the early hours of the morning. The boat was surrounded by tuna and baitfish the whole morning (video coming soon). Marné got a few Mactuna on his TFO Axiom 8wt for the morning and lost a large Longtail Tuna to a shark far out from the boat.
What a way to start the morning! We are blessed with our resident Tuna here in Mooloolaba, QLD.
We caught some nice Mactuna last week on the 3-Tand T-70. This week, we tried to break it on some Longtail tuna... We Couldn't fault the reel! The 3-Tand Nano Carbon Fiber drag is one of the best drags we've tested. Couldn't recommend it more for this style of fishing. We had a double hookup on Longtail tuna and the reel performed beautifully.
Gavin pulled out the Hardy Proaxis-X 9wt and joined in on the fun. Have a look at the pictures below.
