Our 2015 tuna charter season has been quite busy so far, fishing out of scenic Souris, PEI. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting a great fisherman, Gavin, for a week of fishing.
Gavin is an experienced marlin fisherman in his home country of South Africa and wanted to experience the power of a giant bluefin tuna! We didn’t disappoint him and he fulfilled his bucket list with lots of action, with him releasing two giants with numerous hook-ups during the week. The fish in Souris are big hungry fish that flight like crazy!
Here’s an 8.5 foot long giant bluefin swimming at the side of the boat after Gavin caught him on the standup gear. The tuna is getting lots of oxygen before we release him back to the deeps.
