Portland barrel

Post by scott__henning » Wed Oct 31, 2018 9:01 pm

Rolled down to Portland last night, we decided as it was just for a day trip we would book Richie Abella’a boat rather than tow the boat 6 hours each way.

Turned out to be a good decision, with a fish on at 7.15am after half an hour of trolling. An hour later and we had this solid 108kg (cleaned) bluefin on deck.

Currently driving home after a big day, but great to have an esky full of tuna fillets!
