    Oh sweet now everybody can pay $500 to go on a 2.5 day and troll and watch a deckhand throw some bait on a "meter mark". Gay:smoking33::supergay:Let me know when they're at 60 miles.

    Do this with Bigeye and all you will ever do is read reports.:rofl:

    Few days in a row of good weather, I'm all over scouting it out.
    (April 2005: albies in the box 5 miles southeast of the 302. Don't recall if I posted it on BD or not.)

    March 18th 2003.......Limits of Albies and a Bluefin at the 295. Got a call from Brandon who was with Lee on the Heatherlynn the day before, that they were on fish so I loaded up Hanna and we knocked the shit out of'em. You just never know. Last year Fishkiller "G", Saluki and I put some blood on the boat around the 2nd week in June at 113 miles south of Point Loma.

    Temp breaks are looking good..........long range boat reports are looking good............been getting Hanna ready for the weather to break and we're gone. I smell albacore.

    I know he and you were referring to purse seiner activity with your comments, but just to clarify. Local gill netters do sometimes catch albacore in their nets as by catch to the swordfish they are fishing for. So there can be “netted” albacore.

    That's only one thousand dollars in fuel there and back not accounting for trolling time. I'm all over it.















    Let's hope they keep coming up the line.

    Heard there was Albacore at the Worm. None caught, just a metermark and a few jumpers.
    As always there is the resident Albacore that live at the dumper.

    Saluki "hookup", Saluki "hookup", Saluki "hookup" - My crew "we have to put reels on the rods still, need our coffee". Saluki "hookup, where are you guys?".

    Jim Daniels got word of some Albies that slipped past the 2 day boats and were up at the 371. One of the boats coming back in ran them over. That morning we ran out and found the whole overnight fleet sitting waiting for grey light. Jim and Larry's boats were the only two private boats out there.
    We killed albies. The next day no one caught a fish as they disappeared.

    When the water starts getting closer to 70* , then I'll actually pay attention...otherwise July/August ain't too far away from now.

    Royal Polaris:

    "Hi folks;

    Little to report. Saw one small spot of Bluefin that went down before we got to it, and had a kelp with about 25, 8 to 10 pound Yellowtail. We released them all and have been headed south. We are hoping for Albacore by the end of the trip as conditions looked excellent.

    Tomorrow will be a kelp patty day in which we are hoping to find 18 to 20 pound Yellowtail. Wish us luck. The R/p crew."



    I'm going to guess it'll be June 25th before any real numbers show up.

    Yep, as soon as the fish get really thick, ALL the freakin sieners and aircraft will show up and keep us out of the area until they have finished their two hundred thousand metric ton ocean pummel. Maybe the earthquake rebuild efforts in Japan will take a little pressure off the Japanese commerical fishing season this year giving us an unobstructed shot at the BFT?? ....................Naaaaa.
