A HAPPY NEW YEAR


If the weather to bad in the UK BCC Life Member Andy Matthews nips off overseas. Here he is pictured far left with a nice Bluefin Tuna caught in August 2013 in the Mediterranean. He says, we were chasing the shoals of Bluefin tuna and casting small poppers and jigs into the shoals and then holding on for the most explosive fight I have experienced. The picture is of an 83kg fish that took a small 40g jig when we located a shoal of more than a1000 fish (yes one thousand) that stayed up on the surface for 20-25 minutes. The fish that we landed being an average size fish with the shoal. We managed to snap one rod during the trip and the skipper advised that over the following three weeks after we left he snapped a further three rods and was broken off half a dozen times by fish in excess of 100kgs.
