Tuna Fishing

Fishing for Blue Fin Tuna is a new and very exciting fishery from the Cornish coast. This has been done for many years from the Mediterranean, Ireland and USA now they are off our coastline in good numbers.

In the past years we have been visited buy these big game fish and over the few months there has been many Blue Fin Tuna caught in the local waters between Looe and Penzance. Most of them halfway between Mevagissey and Falmouth. many times this year we have had these giants around the boat while fishing on the inside wrecks. I recently went out with some friends of mine and had over a hundred around the boat. I have invested in some new heavier gear to catch these fish that can grow over 1000lb. Try to catch one of these beasts aboard Aquila.

Please remember that if you are lucky enough to catch one of these beautiful giants it may not be possible to boat the fish. Even if we can and you are luck enough to get your photo taken with one it will have to go back to the sea, in the UK they are a protected species and must be returned.

Due to the UK government we are currently not allowed to target these Tuna.

While the UK is a member of the EU and the Common Fish Policy (CFP) within the EU, Only 8 EU countries share the EU's 13,450+ tonnes of quota.

Until our ministers grow a pair or we regain our UK Waters back from the EU's Bias (CFP) thing will stay the same.

This being said if we do hook one while fishing for "Sharks" we can bring them to the side of the boat and release them unharmed.
