Albacore (Thunnus alalunga)

The albacore (Thunnus alalunga) is a highly migratory species valuable to commercial and sport fisheries in California. Commercial albacore fishing began off southern California near the turn of this century. In 1903, an experimental pack of 700 cases of albacore led to the development of the U.S. tuna canning industry. The fishery expanded quickly in response to the almost instantaneous high demand for canned tuna, which quickly outpaced the supply of albacore. By the 1920's, bluefin, yellowfin, and skipjack tuna were also being canned. However, albacore is the only tuna species, which may be marketed as "white meat tuna," and it brings a premium price at the dock and in the can.
Since the early 1980's, about 90 percent of the annual albacore catch has been made by trolling jigs and 10 percent by live-bait pole-and-line fishing. In earlier years, live-bait fishing sometimes accounted for up to 40 percent of the annual catch.

This one was a traveller... You can tell if the ablies are on the move or have been on the move by how ragged their tails are...



Here's Brian's from the same trip. I beat him by about an ounce on the JP

A few years back, on the Ranger 85. Seems like theyve been scarce the last couple of years.
