Yellowfin Tuna

Posted on 5 January 2015 by Lance Manins

The Yellowfin Tuna have arrived through out the upper East Coast of New Zealand with some excellent specimens of up to 50KG being taken. Yellowfin Tuna have been almost non existant since 2008 so they have made a welcome return to the coastline !

We ran our 1st trip out of the Bay Of Islands and ended up with a nice T & R on a 95KG Striped Marlin and 2 YellowFin weighing 17KG. We also spent a day deep dropping for Swordfish/Broadbill up at the Garden patch and ended up with some nice Bluenose. No Bites on Swords though.

The Marlin have arrive with two nice Blue Marlin over 200KG being weighed in Russell and Whangaroa. We have also had reports of Marlin being weighed at Mercury Bay and Whangamata
