Blue Fin Tuna in the Med!

The Mediterranean Sea is often over looked for fishing, thought of as over fished and barren. However, reports of decent catches of exciting game fish, including mighty Blue fin Tuna, are becoming more regular and Mart had the chance to sample some of the action with our recent visitors Terry Smith and John White.

Fishing with a local guiding service for an afternoon / evening session, Mart was fortunate enough to hit into a couple of Blue Fins not far out from the Ebro Delta. The approach was run and gun lure fishing, with diving birds giving away the shoal locations.

Blue Fin Bonus... Mart gets into the Tuna action at his first attempt.

With great Catfishing in the river, superb light spinning for Bluefish and Leer fish around the estuary, and now an exciting off-shore option for the Blue fin Tuna, the Ebro Delta is becoming a mecca for all types of anglers looking for great sport.
