The Gaming Season runs December to the end of June. The fish targeted are Yellow-Fin Tuna, Albacore, Dolphin Fish, Wahoo and Marlin. Trolling with lures is a method used to hook these fish. Slow trolling with Slimey Mackeral, Cowan Young and Striped Tuna is another. The best live bait, slow trolling season for Marlin is February and March.

Drifting over the Merimbula canyons with live bait and running a cube trail product some of the best catches of Yellow-Fin Tuna and Albacore on the eastern coast of Australia. The skippers have brought home very happy anglers who keep coming back for these fish. Big sharks, mainly Mako's are another fish caught in the burley trail during Tuna Season, which is from late April to June.
