Simple explanation. I would rather target the bft than the little chickens.
That being said, I think we won't see albies in the socal bight in the near future.
Now marlin are another story......

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?
If only 1 albacore is caught this year,it is what it is.If someone picked that date...winner winner chicken dinner.

hell no....
Can we agree on So Cal? Marina Del Rey to San Diego Fleet?

I think its very possible that they could show up outside Cortez or down on the dumper. However I do not think the San Juan seamount counts. needs to be below the channel Islands?

No, you cain't go swimmin' in an albacore pool,
But you can be happy if you've a mind to.

From a landing fishing Southern California bight (including spots south of border), not including Rodriguez Seamount, June 30.

Think I have a Newell trolling jig bobbing around somewhere. Never used!

Good fishin'!

Remember when a girl caught an albacore off Clarion Island then went missing on the way to Cabo. I also remember when they were catching Albacore off Cabo and the Mexican fisherman had never seen one.

Talked to a couple old commercial fishermen today. They spend alot of time farther out. They think we might see albies this year.
