bluefin season underway on the westcoast

Hi all, well the West Coast Bluefin tuna season is under way, just back from the first trip already producing a nice SBT caught by Matt Jackson and his team from the South Island. Taping out at 140kg, there are a lot more Hoki boats out here for us to chase this year and we are getting reports from the skippers on the factory trawlers that the Pacific Tuna have turned up as well. With that said, we are extremely excited for the next trip due to sail in a few days so watch this space cheers, Nate
