I will continue this thread throughout the season down here.
By all accounts, there is plenty of bait action off the continental shelf out of Southern Queensland and New South Wales. Starting the hear some reports of Albacore around 8-10kg (15-20lbs) being caught by those prepared to put in the time and effort for them. I don't have photos just yet, but will post when i get some.
Yellowfin Tuna action is heating up with some nice fish taken off the shelf out of Central New South Wales. Below are some photos from a recent trip out by a lucky crew. Fish went about 40kg (80lbs)
More to follow
