    Saltwater Tell me all about PNW saltwater sportfishing

    Newbie to the area, and the tagged albacore post got me all giddy. What are the main saltwater targets around here? I'm familiar with bass, pelagic, and bottom fishing techniques in SoCal, but I figure it's WAY more seasonal up here. What else is a common target? Are there any bass-like targets...
