Well, in 2004, my Dad and I were with Don on the Irene Sea, and got 4 albies and 4 yellowfin on the same day. About 55 miles out towards the Airplane. Albies were good size, at 26/28/30/40 pounds, and the yft were footballs, as you can see. And where we caught each species wasn't very far apart. Don't know why people are such doubters....... Nice fish, congrats!!!

In 2004 locally we saw large grade yft on a whale. The whales back came out of the water and I watched 2 yft slide off the whales breached back. We peeled the 20-45lb yft off the whale and into our chum line. Then the big jumbo 30-45lb albies mixed in. I got my pb Albie at 43.3lbs dock weighed. Then as we are roping on good grade yft and jumbo albacore for over one hour. A kelp paddy naturally drifted off our stern and dropped off good grade yellowtail and ball slapper size dorado. As I'm bringing in a bull dorado to gaff I look over to the captain and say (woh look a albie and dorado coming to gaff at the same time, trippy) captains response (that is trippy). Now we got all 4 species biting. Good grade yft, jumbo albacore, good grade yellowtail, big ball slapper dorados. After a few hour long good plunker 4 species drift, it dried up. As lines in was just called. My buddy pins and lands a 80lb bft. 2004 was rad.

I figured it was a prank. Lobster commercial pots not dropped yet in photo and albie not mentioned. My apologies for the ribbing if mis guided :)

Still waiting to see info on these heaps of marlin you speak of..
Any proof of that? Seen one blue get pulled on pac queen and heard of a couple more that had hooks pulled..guess theyre just not putting them in the counts..?

Seems weird..

Deff not an albie this far south. Havent seen any marlin or wahoo in cali waters this year neither. Im sure the counts would show if albies show.
