    I was camping this last weekend in Albion where word was going around that the tuna grounds were in reach (40 miles) and that a group of boats from FB were going to give it a try on Sun or Mon. Would sure love to hear a report on the results if anybody knows anything.
    I bought a 2020 Parker 2320 and have been going crazy waiting for the tuna water to get here.

    60 miles out for five fish is what my captain in Albion told me. You might find them closer, too far for us to run. Good luck if you go!

    WFO Albies out of FB this past weekend. Sunday and Monday anywhere up and down the 37 line and I mean anywhere..20 - 30 miles of the 37 line fish were caught. Best area for us was 24/36 and 25/37, afternoon much bigger fish. Caught fish as far out as the 47 line on Sunday and caught smaller fish at the 34 line on Monday. Wanted to work a larger area to get some good intel. 15 of the 30 fish we got on Monday went close to 30lbs. Average was probably 18-20 lbs for us. Sunday was nice way out and a bit bumpy inside only 4 boats that I know of out. Monday was lake pacific.. FAC, greasy and probably 25-30 boats spread all over. Never more than 2-3 boats in any one area. Great day. The season is here.

    Anyone got room for a guy if you go?
    Geared up for the most part, gas, bait, you call it, I'm game. I will carry my weight and help with all duties. Or if you know of a charter in the area targeting albies that'd be great too!
    Thanks

    Definitely got my attention. Nice work!! I’ll be ready for our first drive up soon. Just got back from San Diego and wanted to make sure the bluefin weren’t going to give us a shot in NorCal before I head to FB.
