Tuna fish­ing

Scout Magazine - - Elsewhere... -

Did you know, Port­land is Aus­tralia’s bluefin tuna cap­i­tal? On any given day hun­dreds of an­glers launch their boats from the town’s ma­rina in hunt of this elu­sive catch. There are more than 30 char­ter boats ready at your dis­posal to catch one of the 100kg-plus bar­rels, some­thing that oc­curs on an al­most daily ba­sis. One re­cent fe­male an­gler lured a world record catch with a tuna weigh­ing in at 123kg. The heav­i­est ever caught was a whop­ping 176kg!
