(not me)

Heard of it but dout it happena
Why? When it's basically a glass out judging by that picture and modern small 4 strokes using 2/5ths of f.a fuel at trolling speed there's nothing stopping a small boat heading offshore with a competent skipper.
Those blokes were pretty keen but yeah it was a total glass out, you could’ve fished offshore in a bathtub today.

They got that fish after a 2h fight and I’m more impressed that they managed to get the fish in the boat without tipping themselves out :rofl:
At the boat wash in Portland, got talking to a bloke who swapped boats to give a single fisherman a hand to land his barre. He was fishing solo in a 4.5 metre tinnie and hooked a barrel, this other bloke hopped his boat to give this guy a hand driving his boat for about 2 hours until he landed a tuna eztimated weight 120kg.
That’s a very nice tuna. Bet the guy was stoked!

Did you head down scottie?
Yeah mate was hard work today, we went west and found a few schools but couldn’t get a bite. Later in the day found the other boats 15km SE of the rock with plenty of schoolies busting up, again couldn’t get a bite.

Zero’s for us, interestingly there were at least 5 barrels hooked today.
You might have passed us on Sunday, did you see a couple of yaks in 40m or so SE of the rock on your way back in?
