Hillarys Tuna

 New to fishing the Hillarys area and with the nice arvo weather and reading some good info on here took my young bloke and a mate of his out yesterday to look at some ground around the back of the 3 mile sounding for future trips in close when time doesnt allow going out wide.

Anyway thought i would throw a couple of lures out the back and picked up a few tuna which the boys were stoked with lost a few more then thought i would have a couple of quick drifts before heading in, didnt get a bite at all really and then my boy who was flicking one of Big Johns smaller jigs around gets all excited and pulls up a tuna not bad on 6lb braid with a small sienna1000 reel, landed the fish then it did a couple of flips one snapped the line and the other threw the jig out over the side of the boat.

So a good day in the end hopefully got some good spots to check and a some fish.

Spewing about losing the jig, those little jigs are dynamite when the fish are feeding on small bait.

Squid just like bayswater car rentals there were no birds honestly didn't expect much at all just planned to do a bit of mapping and with the swell was sitting between 7-9kn tried a popper on one rod and laser diver on the other and the diver got smashed 3 times for 1 landed, took the popper off and tried another diver and the same one got another 2 so swapped lures on the rod so the other young bloke could get a fish and it worked got 2 more on the same lure.

John considering my last lot of jigs were stolen pretty much without use was def not spewing at least caught a fish.
