    Default Tuna in Mauritius today

    Something different from Salmon, but a fantastic day Big Game fishing in Mauritius, ended up with 6 Tuna, Yellowfin and Skipjack, not big in size but fantastic fighting fish. Lost my first one when it was taken by a Dugong, so at this stage I was fighting a 300lb thief, on the light tackle I had no chance and it took me to the end of the reel and gone, what sport. No Marlin today but the boat had 5 yesterday....story of my life!image-jpgimage-jpgimage-jpgimage-jpgimage-jpgimage-jpgimage-jpgimage-jpgimage-jpgimage-jpg

    Hope you don't mind me asking but what do you do with the fish?Obviously you don't fit them into your suitcase for the trip home. Are they sold on, given the value these fish attract , or is it only the big tuna that are valuable?
    You won`t catch anything if you don`t keep your bugs in the water!

    The skipper sells them on the beach when you get back, the fish merchant is waiting or you can keep them yourself depends on what you have agreed, but where are you going to keep/cook them?
    Not much evidence of catch and release as every fish is firmly gaffed to get it on board.

    I bet the fish & chips are better in Eyemouth than the fishing! Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain!

    If it does you can see old pin ups of the women who worked in fish packing - just visit the museum.

    Can't be any worse than a day on the Tweed.
    Hope that there's no nasty storms heading that way !

    I done that a month or 2 back, caught the usual stuff plus an octopus and squid which i didn't expect but by far the highlight of the day was the cups of bovril
