“After news that there were a few Bluefin tuna running off Waihau Bay in the Bay of Plenty and a weather window coming up in a couple of days, we made the call to take Lydia (a 9mtr AMF) for a run down the coast to give them a nudge.
While off Waikawa Point heading down towards Waihau Bay we had a shot in 1100mtrs of water in the shotgun position, after a good scrap Steve landed his first Bluefin tuna.
The new Black Magic ‘Lumo Lollipop’ Soft Pusher once again proved itself through results, it’s action is quite distinctive while being trolled, once you see it in the water, there is no wonder marlin and tuna find it simply irresistible.
Thanks Black Magic for producing another winner.”
Steve Milbank caught this 84.5kg Southern Blue Fin Tuna on full Black Magic Tackle kit. This included the NEW Black Magic Soft Pusher ‘Lumo Lollipop’ lure, Black Magic IGFA 37kg ‘clear’ line, Black Magic 200lb Tough Trace, Black Magic Closed Gape 9/0 game hook and of course the trusty Black Magic Equalizer Gimbal and Harness. Well done boys!
