Exciting bluefin tuna season came to a close

Last Sunday marked the the end of this year’s bluefin tuna season. Ewings Sea Angling and Boat Charters fishing out of Rosses Point, Co. Sligo report on their year. Read their detailed report below…
“Last Sunday marked the end of the bluefin tuna season and we are busy washing down rigs and gear, sharpening, painting hooks and servicing the reels and equipment for next season! The second half of the season was fantastic with multiple fish taken on every trip and loads of smaller fish about feeding hard on the big sprat shoals in the bay, with a nice mix of some bigger fish through them. We didn’t get out much in November due to weather and other commitments but again there were plenty of fish around which is promising well for next season again. We have lots more tricks on the way for next year and are currently getting two more thrasher standup rods being built to our specifications by @mikes custom rods Waterford and are really looking forward to getting a bend in them. We have too many pictures on our phone to put up all of them but here’s a couple of snaps of some of October catches! Thanks again to everyone for coming out!”
Killybegs Fishing Trips also had a final go at the tuna last weekend…
“2nd last day of the bluefin tuna season, and things were much quieter today. It was a really nice day at sea, not as much signs around today, but managed one smaller tuna at 130lb, which Paul fought on the stand up gear. We did lose another fish late on in the day but that’s fishing. However, looking forward to next year’s bluefin season in Donegal Bay!”
