Freeswimming black trying to mow a tuna

Freeswimming black trying to mow a tuna

Hard to get a picture due to the conditions.  We hooked a small stripey and had some wierd action getting him to the boat, as we got close he had a solid 40kg+ blackon his tail.  We freespooled the tuna and the marlin smashed him several times and ate it once but because the hook was in a wierd position in the tuna he didn't hookup and spat it out.  After a couple of minutes of being a pinyata the tuna didn't look tuna like anymore, the marlin gave it one more buzz before a shark came and ate the leftovers before we could get photos of the damage done to the poor little fella.  It made for some great viewing though for a relatively quiet day.

Allways something going on out from Exmouth,one thing Jesse and his freind Kye said while up there this year was if your not catching fish there is always something to see,or something going on in the water ,unlike Perth no fish and your garanteed to have a bloody boaring day.
