Should be called southern bluefin not on weekend tuna or SBNOWT for short
That's why I didn't get anything! I reckon tackle stores must love these reports....man I burnt a lot of fuel trolling around Flinders/Cape Schanck last year.

It was posted by tackleworld, sent in by an anonymous person or something.

flinders will be packed this weekend.
Watching the video, he was lucky to stay connected as long as he did. He was fairly giving it a hiding, I was surprised it didn't snap just after the video started.
HAHAHA Yes, well I was pretty wrapped just to get hooked, followed by extremely devastated that it got off so close. With the buoys, people diving, people fishing and kids swimming, it was not what I expected - but take full responsibility for my terrible action ;) Never had to deal with one of those before!

And yes, it has taken almost a year to a) find the footage b) find this post ... :super:
