Southern Bluefin Tuna
What a fish! Not to be confused with the similar Northern hemisphere Atlantic Bluefin Tuna, the Southern Bluefin Tuna or SBT’s are one of the best fish you will catch. Revered by fishermen around the world for a relentless fighting ability, it’s no surprise these are our most popular charters. They always sell out fast.
Any time after March each year the line-peeling school fish invade the southern coastline of Australia. We port at Portland for most of the year. While the smaller fish will pester the lures, the ultimate for many fishermen is the Giant Bluefin otherwise known as ‘Barrels’. If you catch one of these, you’ll have lasting memories long into retirement.
While Skipper Matt is fully qualified to venture into the deeper water on the edge of the Continental Shelf, ironically the larger fish can be caught in shallower water closer to shore. We intercept them as they chase the abundant baitfish schools all along the south coast. Matthew Hunt Fishing Services has not only has a purpose-built vessel for these waters, but the Skipper qualifications also. Our difference is our skills and experience so you get the most from your Tuna Fishing adventure.
