Congratulations to Kurt Bauman on your beautiful 83cm Murray cod caught at Seymour, you are this weeks Catch of the Week.

PAUL'S FISHING

Late report sent in; Paul and the IFISH TV crew launched from Martha Cove and headed offshore out from Barwon Heads. They located massive schools of southern bluefin tuna, yellow tail kingfish and Australian salmon. The fish were located in water from 30 metres deep to 55 metres deep and looking for birds made the search easier. 4 beautiful tuna were caught all around 20kg, some big Australian salmon and some nice kingfish as by-catch. All tuna were caught on small BUKU skirted lures and feathers with the shotgun getting the most bites. A number of bites also came on the Rapala X-Rap 30 in BSRD colour. An amazing fishery offshore that is a must to experience. PW’s hot tip is to work hard to find the fish on the sounder and don’t be discouraged if you don’t hook up straight away. It is worth making a number of passes over the fish you have sounded as they can eventually come up and eat your lures.
