False Albacore are "King!"

We may have just lost the Queen Lady recently, but here, "Albies are King! "

Are you ready for some Football?  It's been the best albie season so far in the last four years.

They seem to be everywhere, evenly distributed along our ocean coastline and some in our bay waters and willing to chew.

They can be caught by surf fishermen on jetties, beaches, others on boats, jet skis, paddle boards.

So far so good this season as far as good weather. No tropical storms, large wave surges, extreme winds so far.

It's totally crazy. If you haven't gotten in on the act, drop your weedwacker and grab your rod.

Show us (here) your best albie photos for all to share. Maybe get some couch potatoes off the couch.

Four hour trip Friday morning, not an albie in sight that I could confirm.

Lots of sea bass and scup on a fly, not a single striper or bluefish.

Some scattered macs around, could be Spanish, but nobody was catching them either.

Water temp dropped to 69 degrees.

Maybe the 20 degree drop in night time temperature had something to do with the poor fishing this morning?

No bait to be found.

Twice this week epic fishing got shut right down by seals 

They chased the fish out of casting range 2x last week on the beach...

Experienced the same thing. Hit the surf last night and it was clear the cold front has slowed down the bite. Went out in the boat for albies this AM and despite the boat traffic, no one was hooking up. The birds were flying but not feeding. Disappointing
