PORTLAND TUNA

The barrel tuna haven’t left Portland this week with some fantastic fish weighed in from 80kg to 116kg. Trolled skirts are definitely the go-to but don’t be afraid to have something to cast ready to go if the situation arises, Strada Pro Tera lures and Samaki Pacemakers are known big tuna lures.
