Pacific Coast Marine Top Ten Tuna

PACIFIC COAST MARINE TOP TEN TUNA TOURNAMENT 7TH, 8TH JANUARY 2017

 

A few good tuna catches in the weeks leading up to the tournament, a fairly good weather forecast and plenty of prize incentive saw 222 anglers fish the competition aboard 72 boats – a huge increase on recent years. Although the winning fish was caught on Sunday, most of the action took place on Saturday with an unexpected strong breeze keeping many boats off the water on the second day of the tournament. Though it was a very successful tournament with 47 tuna weighed, it will be well remembered for the three blue marlin caught weighing 304.2kg, 281.2kg and 266.5kg – possibly the first time three such large fish have been landed in one day at the club. Mercury Bay Game Fishing Club would like to thank Pacific Coast Marine and Diesel for sponsoring and doing such a great job organising the event.
