    It always seemed like when scattered, school size, BFT would mix with the Albacore it made the Albacore finicky. Occasionally in those years, the boat lines, typically 300# parachute cord, would get blown up. Probably huge BFT or Big Eye. But, believe they weren't targeted and today's modern tackle was not yet available.

    I metered them off Newport a few days ago. Halfway in the water column. So thick it looked like the bottom.

    Saw lots of them floating up of Carpenteria above Ventura when trying for salmon a couple weeks ago. Some nice clean 60 deg water pushing in offshore of the Northern Channel Is., got me dreaming of albacore.
