Catching a barrel bluefin on my own boat has been on my bucket list for the last three years.
The weather for the last two years, on weekends, has generally been really bad.
Enviously, I’ve watched people make the pilgrimage to Portland and get their barrel tuna when the weather is good during the week. Then by the weekend, it is too windy.
But finally, last Friday, I took a long weekend and made the run down late on Thursday night, and caught my barrel bluefin tuna!
It weighed 111.95kg after having been bled.
