    This might be a stupid question, if it is...oops. But, do people ever catch dorado, makos or anything else that you consider exotic out there? That offshore world is a completely unexplored fishery to me...

    Swords makos threshers bigeye bft skip jack marlin dorado have all been caught over the years and are seen and /or.caught most years just generally farther then most of the smaller boats will go. WA offshore fishing has only been limited by simply fishing the closest albacore.possible. The charter boats who do fish multiple day trips tend to stay close and only fish one day before.they are full and headed home........ August outside with some serious hunting could truly change peoples vision. If it I done with good Intel and an understanding it takes more then a day or trip to truly get a picture......

    a san diego-style offshore party boat capable of 3-day trips (bait capacity & angler accommodations) out of washi would be nice, but what would they do the rest of the year? and would there even be enough anglers during tuna season to justify that size of boat?

    Offshore NW charters last year caught two Blue Fins, and a few other boats brought a couple in to. Maby it's the beginning of more.

    It would....there is a problem. In the 80s a few so-cal boats would show in the fall.....there was almost no local people who fishing albacore...most people were so-cal regulars of the boat.
    The WA charter boats saw a potential for losing ground.....so .....they pushed for and got passed into law.....you can not.commercial sportfish for albacore without a commercial sport fishing SALMON PERMIT. That has done its job....doesnt pay for a boat to run north....the permits are spendy if you don't fish it all season

    That's crazy. I never would've thought the water would be warm enough to bring those species up north. Crazy shit you can do/learn when you branch out of your comfort zone

    I went comercial fishing one summer out of Newport OR for albacore on a jig boat. We were 1000 miles off the coast and we got bluefin and even some small yellowtail out there. One day all the jig lines snapped and other code boats in the area had the same thing happen to them. The captains swore big bluefins. They are there just hard to find.
