Catch of the Day: tuna at 1000 fathoms

Catch of the Day (June 28): Rough winter days have kept most off Far South Coast NSW waters, but fishing on Friday was charter boat Playstation from Charter Fish Narooma.

On board were a group of builders on a project in Narooma who took a day off to chase tuna and they were rewarded with albacore and smaller yellowfin.

There were quadruple hook-ups on albacore with yellowfin mixed through.

Skipper Nick Cowley reported good numbers of albacore off Narooma today around the 1000 fathom line along with a couple small yellowfin out wider. They ended up with over 20 albies and released quite a few.

There was no repeat of the 98kg yellowfin tuna that Nick and a previous group of clients caught last week, but the boys were pretty happy.
