Macks and Tuna reports

Post by Mitchjames55 » Mon Mar 18, 2019 12:01 pm

Hi Guys,
I'm fairly new to boat fishing and looking to tick off some solid tuna and macks, it's might be a little early yet but has anyone been catching many lately?
cheers :drinking8:

Went out Saturday and the tuna and some Mack’s amoung then were at 6mile around lunch time
Couldn’t hook one on the lures that usually work and didn’t see the other 2 boats hook up either.
They weren’t flighty and were all around the boat feeding...very frustrating!!

went out to Dundee, and out near Sail City, there were schools going crazy, couldnt miss. 40g Halco outcasts were destroying them... so much fun.

Have also seen schools of tuna & queenies at 6 mile recently and same as mickd couldn't hook up on usual chromies/poppers, very annoying! They were quite flighty as though only popping up for a minute or less then buggering off.
Sounds like Dundee is the go if you can get a day without too much wind/swell.
