    albies are out around 60 miles off del mar outside the 181

    fish are mixed 8-35lbs
    and were filled with red crab

    these guys got them on troll and live bait

    and the 3 o them where near limits

    also heard that a 80+lb white seabass was caught on squid by a kayaker off the beach

    We all know their out 500 miles West! However, if they are going to swim by us and give us the Fin and maybe catch a few. They would historically show up the 3rd week in June and go on a good bite by July 4! (So that's not too long away) We will know in a month or so if their is anything to this!

    hey bowler instead of sounding stupid and putting out opinions instead of facts try knowing what your talking about

    http://pacificalbacore.com

    May 21, 2020: While the North Pacific albacore fishery is still maybe a month away some albacore have been caught in other gear types offshore of S. California. Also, some albacore have been reported caught off N. Baja for the first time in many years by local boats..
    April 24, 2020: South Pacific: The South Pacific season has ended with good tonnage from 19 boats. Those with pre-arranged markets had a easier time selling. Those without are still having difficulties. Most of the albacore was shipped out of New Zealand to various places and some was brought back to the west coast. A couple boats sold to Star Kist in American Samoa.

    fish are still around
    scattered from punta colonet to the potatoe bank ,mixed with blue fin and big bigeyes
    need to look for the mammals schooling


    they are around and catchable
    still as close as 40 miles off the beach in mex along with large spots of yellowfin
    just need luck and time

    so all that called bullshit need to look before they babble nonsense
    sounding more like trump than anglers

    sorry but half day boats just won't cut it

    ok i'll try to make it simple for you
    follow the link
    this is from people out fishing everyday not weekend half day warriors
    people that don't talk about what hearsay they get from a lot of people they know

    people who make a living from fishing which includes me,
    something i have been doing for more than 50 years

    so give all the opinions you want and believe what ever misinformation you get

    but that facts just make you sound like a farmer sitting behind his plow
