So it looks like the Excel fished Cedros on Thursday for some nice yellowtail fishing and then headed offshore to get into the albacore zone....

Reported that they ended up with a few dozen fish....

I'm changing all the line on my reels today in anticipation....:)

They will be here soon, HD's still holding out that they reach here next Friday....

From a very knowledgable guy in SD (thanks Tommy) who knows alot about the sieners reported that they are not wrapping the albacore but trying to get the bluefin...

Albacore are the hardest tuna to set a net on, but the seiners do scatter the albies schools and make them boat shy...

Seiners hardly ever wrap albacore, I'd almost say never, but once in awhile they school up tight enough to wrap. And JMO, they usually don't make them boat shy, as the alby edge and BFT edges are usually a few miles apart. Not always, but a majority of the time.

Back in the mid-'80's seiners caught about 5,000 tons of albacore on the west coast. This included US and Mexican boats. Just the right set of conditions and the fish were schooling tightly. I seriously doubt that will be the case this year.

Schedule some days off and get ready. They'll be here PDQ.
