The Catch
Tuna (Yellowfin)

New Zealand had a massive decline in YFT numbers from 2008 through 2013 where the average amount taken for the whole season would have been fewer than 10-20 fish in total.

The 2014/2015 season saw the 1st great run of these amazing and delectable fish turn up in our waters for many years and it looks as though they are back again with a number of great fish taken yesterday just out from the Bay Of islands .

If we are seeing fish in the 20-30KG range so early then we can expect some big bruisers to be around as well as the big Blue marlin so watch this space as I expect that straight after Xmas the Bay Of islands area will be reporting some excellent catches and action.

Stay Tuned and get your early season charter booked !!!!
