NT NEWS. 63 P U B : NTNE-WS-DA-TE:14-JGE:63 CO-LO-R: C-M Y-K Time to sneak up on some tuna The Halco Avgas Roosta Poppa The long-tail tuna are now showing up By CRAIG GROSVENOR SEEING as the barramundi are on strike to some degree, its even more reason to tackle the bluewater pelagics. Long-tail tuna are showing up close to home with good sightings and casting sessions taking place just off Emery Point at Larrakeyah. One crew hit em with the new Halco Outcast redheaded slugs and oz Maribou Jigs in a session that lasted for 10 minutes before the fish went deep. The sneaky approach is pretty important for these things, as they can be very flighty if you get a little keen and power into them. Often the better approach is to sight the school and head upwind, kill the motor and drift into them. Among these powerhouses can be even bigger powerhouses in the form of mackies, so be prepared to lose some line upon hook-up. High-speed spin gear is the preferred outfit for this as a chromie will go out of sight without a birds nest, and accuracy among a quarter-acre school isnt that important. Our new Avgas Roosta Poppers also burnt a few mackerel off Dundee last week, with the fish around the 10kg mark. Of course, if these things are in the harbour, then they are certainly outside the harbour in even bigger numbers. The Lee Point reef systems often hold good schools, but possibly the Dundee Wide and Peron locations take the cake for the big footy-ovalsized schools. Wherever your bluewater assault might take you, make sure you are ready and loaded as it is often a short window of opportunity. In other offshore news, there have been some flat calm reports, albeit a little inconsistent. Keep an eye on the weather chart . . . its still south-easterly, so our harbours and inshore reef systems would be more likely to strike calm waters. ntnews.com.aul l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l WEATHER ntnews.com.aul l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l FISHING
