Hugh Johnson of ”Portland Bait and Tackle” is a 15 year old Junior took the biggest Tuna this weekend with $500 and leads the $5000 Comp .This 60 kg. Tuna bleed is a Pending Australian Junior 15 kg. Line class record also. Hugh was in there family boat with brother Sam ,Adam and Manuel Vella.The Tuna took nearly 2 hrs on 15 kg. Line. Hugh went out for dinner with Peter Pakula and myself and a dozen others last night. Hugh sat beside Peter and must have gained something out of that conversation.Peter has been in town this weekend and did a tackle talk the night before. The Tuna was caught on one of those famous Pakula lures.Plenty of school tuna and Albies on the tables today.
