Welcome to the UK home of big game fishing

Bluefin TUNA FISHING

If you have got this far it sounds like you have done your homework already.

We are fully licensed by the UK government to catch and release Bluefin Tuna.

Our Bluefin Tuna fishery here in Cornwall is by far the best in UK and definitely the right location for your best chance of catching that special fish of a lifetime.

Currently, to date, we have landed well over 250 giant Bluefin Tuna with almost all of them being tagged and released for scientific research.

So what’s our biggest and best catch.

In 2021 our biggest was 113 inches calculations put it at around 900-1000lb that was the largest Bluefin Tuna caught for science that year and I believe the record still stands.

This year also seen us break another UK record of catching and tagging 13 Bluefin Tuna in one day something that was never thought possible and all witnessed by an onboard CEFAS observer which was a requirement of our license at the time.

Bluefin TUNA FISHING CHARTERS AVAILABLE

2022 seen us catch another Giant Bluefin Tuna of 112 inches which again was the biggest fish caught for science that year.

This year was also the most we caught in one season which totalled 174 fish which made our catch stats 2.7 fish per day so pretty impressive stuff.

Fishing for scientific programs is something we take great pride in 👌
Congratulations to the team at the Pat smith database for securing another great project.

Congratulations to the team at the Pat smith database for securing another great project.Saving Sharks Using Mucous

We are very excited to be able to announce that we have today launched our shark mucous sampling project which has been made possible through initial funding support from Sea-Changers.

With scientific institution support, the project objective is to collect circa 250 mucous samples which will be held in a long term storage facility to await analysis.

With up to 20 sub samples being available from a single mucous sample, this project has the potential to provide material for 5000 individual areas of study.

The samples will be made available to scientific organisations who are pursuing relevant areas of study and will enable DNA, stable isotope and fatty acid analysis which will assist with population, kinship and other areas of study.

Sharks are classed as a data poor species so any information obtained will help underpin successful national and international shark fisheries management.

Recreational sea angling charter skippers will be trained in a non invasive mucous collection technique and collect the mucous samples from a number of shark species caught and released by recreational sea anglers.

As we progress through this exciting project we will post updates on this page and on our website. www.patsmithdatabase.com/

SHIMANO SPEED MASTER 10II REVIEW 

Well Congratulations shimano on the new speedmaster 10 it has completed its first year on Bluefin and been used pretty much most days over the season.

As you can see in the pictures no corrosion or marks despite not being rinsed or washed for the year.

We had 12 of these at the beginning of last year and they are all still pretty much perfect to look at and no issues at all.

What an amazing all round reel at a affordable price

Certainly the best I have seen for a long long time and always great when a good one comes along 👌
