Tuna fishing season can run from as early as February and keep going right up until October, the main reason we target Blue Fin Tuna from April to September is the Tuna are at their best and most accessible at these times, the Tuna make their way inshore from Port Fairy to the South Australian Border in depths of as shallow as 20 m of water.
