Disgruntled Tuna Men

With the Wicked Tuna series and high prices have boaters buying expensive gear to go an make money tuna fishing...they will be lucky to break even....prices R 4-5 bucks a lb. ....the yen is down and most fish R going to the domestic market....harpooners go many miles most days...have to pay the plane etc:....many will not break even.

Albacore and Escolar are both called "white tuna" but they are radically different fish.

Sushi white tuna (shiro=white and maguro=tuna) is albacore, the same fish that goes into canned tuna. They are long-finned tuna that I am catching out here on the west coast - out of California, Oregon and Washington.

Escolar are also nicknamed white tuna, but are not the same thing. Escolar are tropical or temperate water fish and are really oily and cause problems. I have only heard of them being caught in South and Central America. they look different and are crazy oily/waxy. and if you eat a lot you get a form of diarrhea with oily discharge - just like olestra (remember those commericals).

look up escolar - makes you not want to eat it. I have tried it smoked.....its good...and fishy. I like it, but after reading up, not going to buy it again

Keep lines wet and tight in the pacific

Odysea came by us at 11am Sunday in P-town. He must've steamed down in the morning.

Albacore tuna (Duh!) We have them around here, usually (but not always) 40+ miles from shore. They have very distinctive loooong pectoral fins.

Longfin albacore known also as "penguins" over VHF lingo. They are a lot of fun to catch and are delicious to eat. I look forward to them every season, they are cool looking fish and they fight like hell. Generally a canyon fish but every now and again you see them closer but still aways offshore.

We have some amazingly warm temps now off of were I live. A buddy went out yesterday and recorded temps as high as 82.5 at the dump. That is gulf stream temps...just imagine what it will be a month from now! Soon we will have wahoo from the beach!

Albacore prefer cooler water, high 60s low 70s.
