    Sounds like Randy on the Royal Star found the first albacore (6/3) of the 2012 season for the LR fleet.

    From Mike on the Vagabond:

    ALBACORE! Our friend Royal Star Randy just caught the 1st Albie of the season. Our hero!

    and from Point Loma Sportfishing:
    The first albacore was just caught today and the American Angler caught a 20lb bluefin within 100 miles of San Diego a few hours ago. Looks like these tuna are getting closer by the day!

    Hope this is a sign the fish will return to the coastal waters in a big way this year...

    Smaller Bfin at 80-90 miles I heard. That 50-80lb stuff, I understand is 200-240mi. Need at least 3 1/2 day to get on those. Shogun is still on them, and I understand the Apollo is on a 5 day, and will be hearing from them soon. Tight lines.

    From the Royal Star this morning:

    06/03/12

    An epic day in beautiful flat calm weather to start our annual Baja Fish Gear trip.
    Within minutes of getting to the zone we got on a spot of 50-75lbers that responded and bit steady for three hours. When the dust settled we had 59 aboard; talk about going from zero to sixty in 5 seconds. We haven't seen this caliber of fishing on this grade bft in quite awhile so if your on the fence I would get on a trip.
    We got on another school this afternoon that plunked until dark producing another 41 bft and 3 ALBACORE which were nice 25lbers, the first of the year.
    We are spending the night here on cloud nine looking forward to what we hope is another great day tomorrow.
    Our first shot shows John Stuemke with a 70lb class bft,(you fireboys are missing out). Robin Lemaster is in the second with the first albacore of 2012.

    Randy Toussaint


    Like the report said, "3 ALBACORE which were nice 25lbers. . ." which are bigger than the smaller BFT coming into local waters!
    I'd hold my breath for a slug like this!
