    Southern Bluefin Tuna - East Coast NI

    Things are heating up on the East coast. Cant wait for a window to go and have a crack out wide. Waihau Bay club have had them trickling in for a few weeks now.

    Who else is going to give them a go?

    You can see three commercial guys working them 20 odd miles off Waihau.

    Water was bubbling off my Motiti spot a couple of weeks back. Albies and skippies everywhere.

    Was about three weeks back but we were quite shocked to say the least and had no gear on at all. Were untold Albies. I've never seen as many even mid feb in the blue off the Cape...
