A couple of months back I posted the story about the bluefins 300m from land in Ireland in the Surf Fishing Forum cos it did not fall into the offshore catagory! Now that I have some more info I think I will post it here cos it is more appropriate here. Anyway Ireland is way off shore for you guys.

I have just completed a handy article about the bluefin tuna fishing in Ireland. It gives the history of the fish in Irish waters and off the attempts to catch it. It may be of interest to anyone looking for an alternative bluefin location. We already had one boat come up from the Azores for the action...

2002 looks like it could be quite a good season now that the skippers have built on the experiences of 2000 and 2001.

Anyway there are plenty of pics, lots of info and a handy map.

Great Post! With the right wind you could fly a kite bait right into the strike zone.

Ahhhh, I can see it now, sitting on the beach with my trusty 50SW loaded with 1200 yds. of 130# spectra dancing a large squid just under the surface. Maybe even a 4X4 to follow a hot fish, LOL!

Nice to see that they still have an inshore fishery for BFT, wish we still had them. Wouldn't that be a kick to catch schoolies on 20-30# tackle within a few hundred yards of South Shore and Jersey beaches?

Thanks,
