I say we start an albacore pool.
Anyone who posts a prediction of the first albacore of 2017 is the grand prize winner.
Anyone who posts a prediction must say what they will donate as a prize.
Whos in?
I will donate a cedar plug.
My date for first albacore will be.....im thinking before july 4th.Once this roller coaster weather loses momentum...BOOM...nice weather,clean cold water...ALBA-MUTHAFUKIN-CORE.Wishful thinking...maybe.

Me- cedar plug 6-27
CaptJgray - pack hooks 4-1
Sealskinner - tuna plug 6-23
Blackfish -10 irons 6-14

Just to clarify, are you talking anywhere on the west cost (including Oregon/Washington), off California cost only, or out of San Diego?

If just out of San Diego, is "none" an option? I am not trying to be a pessimist, but rather playing the odds. :-)

There were 2 confirmed Albacore caught here last year. And after each lots of folks here thought the 2ND coming of Christ was on the way even though they were single solitary lost souls. Would either of them satisfy your criteria here or does it have to start a sustained season?

My money says SOMEONE will catch an Albacore or two sooner or later this year. But an actual season? Nope, ain't gonna happen. If it is just a fish or two, who gives a shit what day it happens on?
