BLUEFIN TUNA DRIFTING

Known as ‘Big Game’, it’s a challenge between man and fish. Bigger fish often lives far from the coast. During last five years, after commercial fishing restictions, number and weight has increased. Actually fish weight is average 60/80 kg, than we use 30/50 lb. rods on stand up fight. Adrenaline is guaranteed!
By using pieces of sardines on the hook and three rods, tunas will be attracted from chumming. In case of succesfull fishing the angler gets a photo, as the ritual requires, and the tuna MUST be released, in accordance with applicable laws.
Is possible to practice this technique all the year long. Our crew will suggest to you the best period.

Catch and release – recommended practices
* Avoid long playing times by using heavy line classes.
* Remove the hooks from the fish while it is in the water or cut the trace.
* If possible use barbless single hooks on lures.
* For bait fishing, use hooks that reduce gut hooking such as circle hooks.
* Keep tuna out of the water for the minimum possible time.
* Use dehookers to remove hooks from larger fish released in the water.
When released, tuna tend to swim a short distance or drop down to the seabed where they spend some time recovering A good oxigenation is very important. Be sure that fish is able to swim well before release it!
