Hey Everyone,
I was wondering if any of you could tell me what the best prices for buying albacore was for last year.
I had heard that they were much cheaper than here in Oregon. I appreciate any help.
If it's easier, you can text me at 503-539-1576
Thanks and be safe out there and remember to take a kid with you on your next trip.

I've spent months fishing in Fijian waters and never seen an Albacore nor have I ever met a Fijian who caught one or even knew what Albacore was-the ocean there is the temperature of bathwater lots of Skipjack some with white meat but they ain't Albies.

Not sure about Fiji but in all other areas they travel, albacore are deepwater fish. The or/wa coast is pretty unique in that regard from what I read.

Hit up ARSC, it will be over $3/lb in the round when it’s available. I don’t think I have many loins left but if you are ever in the Kitsap area stop by for loins or canned.

    For what it’s worth Oregon is no more expensive… every year is different, but last year you could go to the docks and buy for $3.00 a pound whole fish. You could pay and extra $5.00 and they would loin it out for you.
