5th December 2015 – Adriatic Sea
Here we go again, in the North of Adriatic Sea, for a late autumn Bluefin tuna hunt with friends.
It was a classical “December” day: cold, 5° C temperature, constant wind from North and choppy water.
We found the fish almost immediately, but they were quite hard to reach: they were single fish feeding slowly on surface with no real explosions or bursts. Fish were very shy, and the choppy water didn’t help to identify the fish on topwater. Seagulls have been extremely helpfull in those conditions.
I gave my Surfish Paulownia 220F (pink-silver colour) to my friend Capt. Marco “B&C” Mancinelli that first had a strike on a bluefin that didn’t remain hooked, and after few minutes had a another beautiful topwater attack from a tuna: a nice and healthy fish in the 35-40 kg range that has been safely released back to the water.
Nice work Marco ! The Paulownia 220F confirms its skill in catching Bluefin tunas even in windy and choppy conditions, even with single hooks setup !
