Small Boat Cornish Tuna

by David Proudfoot

John’s videos are always worth watching but this one is something special as tuna turn up as a welcome porbeagle by-catch. Open the popcorn and settle back to watch the excellent 50 minute long footage.

The first time ever in the UK someone has caught and landed 2 300lb+ Bluefin Tuna single handed on their own 16ft boat and caught it on camera!!! This was intended to be a video targeting porbeagle sharks but these were a very welcome by catch. Leadered, unhooked, revived and released boat side. What an amazing day and incredible creatures. As if the stunning scenery and gin clear waters of Cornwall weren’t enough, we now have bluefin tuna!!!!
