Hope to be the first to show one... lol... anyone else capable, watch the wind and if you wanna follow... \
Here's a link to the first positive thread I've seen on albies out of Oregon - http://www.ifish.net/board/showthrea...11#post4645811. It won't be much longer until they find their way up north. I probably won't due a tuna run this weekend but next weekend or the one after that might be worth the fuel expense.
Got the report today a couple commercial tuna guy's got some 5o miles out....
50 miles out of where? And how many is "some"? E.g. is it worth burning $200-300 of fuel for this weekend? Inquiring minds want to know.
Here is report from the Western Fishboats Owners Association.
July 9, 2013 There has been virtual no catches made along the NW coast. Winds remain strong off Oregon and boats fishing off WA reported 0-20 fish. There was some good catches made far offshore but have since dwindled.
July 3, 2013 A vessel scouting in the 130W region off Oregon has found very small quantities of alabcore in the past few days. 5-30 fish. Weather inside of 130W has been very windy and rough. There was a a sign of fish farther offshore but looks to be very spotty so far.
June 30, 2013 One vessel reported fishing for 3 days from 46N to 44N between 125W and 126.10W and catching only 4 fish for 3 days. Another boat had 19 fish in the 46N area. Some boats headed offshore to look.
June 22, 2013 A few boats have made trips searching for albacore along the west coast from CA to OR coastal areas and offshore. Reports of 5 fish/day at best is the only numbers at this time. Looks early yet!
June 17, 2013 There have been no confirmed catches yet, however a few vessels have left for fishing and some are offshore from 130W - 140W but have not found much yet. Water along the coast is fairly cool yet.
June 10, 2013 The 2013 US west coast alabcore season should get underway within a few weeks. There have been no confirmed catches yet. Water temps especially west of 130W look favorable at this time. Standby, we appreciate your interest.
January 23, 2013 A few US albacore vessels are fishing in the South Pacific this year. Reports for the North Pacific will begin around the end of June 2013. Standby, we appreciate your interest.
I believe 50 mile out of bamifield... I believe....it was a commercial fisherman doing it...

It makes me crazy watching the weather forecast when the are so many days with no more than 20kn but no less than 10kn. 10kn is just to much. How about 6kn mr weather man.
Mall good thing are worth waiting for but at this rate I am wondering if it will ever calm down. Maybe last years was an exceptional year.

It will happen. August will have many, many good days in it. It always does. We'll get our shot(s) sooner or later.
