This weeks red hot fishing report is from bermagui in nsw,with wild weather hiting the victorian coast we decided to head up to bermagui to get into the tuna frenzy that was happening up there,in just 3 days fishing we caught and released around 100 bluefin tuna from 30kg to 60kg(watch for some insane footage caught on film coming soon) we also had mates rob torelli murray petersen and aleks matic join the red hot crew and rob and muzz being divers it was a world record tuna they were chasing on spear on day 2 muzz scored with a pending world record of 47.2kg bluefin tuna and both rob and murray had plenty of tuna on spear over the 3 days so i thought it was my shot to grab murrays dive gear and get into the deep blue water 3500 meters some 65ks off the coast of bermagui and after a short time in the water i had speared my very first southen bluefin tuna of 30kg and after a great fight and some wicked photos the fish was boated and again i went back in the water for another shot after another short time in the water i had my 2nd ever bluefin on spear a 33kg once fish was landed i was back on deck catching plenty on rod and reel, we were floating pillys down the cube trail and the tuna just smashed them every time,the highlight of this trip was being in the water and watching the boys on the deck flicking soft plastics into the tuna schools and to be 3 foot away from 35 to 45 kg tuna as the smashed these soft plastics and powered past me with huge speeds was amazing and something i will never forget iam still buzzing and will be for some time here are a few pics from those awesome days fishing.cheers simo
