We call albacore by their Japanese name here: tombo, which means dragonfly. Our tombo season is almost over but our snapper season is just starting!

This is a comparision of a yellow fin and an albacore:



The ahi was 55 lbs. and the tombo was 52 lbs.

It's always sunny on our coast! sausage.gif


Thanks for the pics...

Thanks!!!!

We rarely get Big Eyes (albacore) over 40 pounds here. Most average 15-20 pounds. Every once in a while we'll get a Yellow fin. The last couple of years we've caught a couple Dorado (Mahi Mahi).

We've decided that we will move to the beach again, only it's gonna be your beach!

A big eye tuna is different from a tombo:

Yellow tail and big eyes are both called ahi here. They look just like a yellow tail but they don't have a yellow tail and they have big eyes. biggrin.gif

A co-worker, at my "real" job, asked me if I ever heard of a certain boat because that boat was in the local paper for catching 200 mahi mahis in one day. I said yeah I know him because his boat is docked right below the fish market I work at and I buy fish from him all the time. Well yesterday that captain came by and I asked if he was in the paper for catching 200 fish? He said he only caught 184...

I might have half a cow to trade. My wife just ran over one of my calfs! Major drama here!!! The calf seems to be okay but is limping pretty bad and there is blood everywhere.

There's plenty of room here! Don't forget to bring your minis...

Case,

Looks like you had a wonderful time on the coast. Sounds like you should orchestrate a SMF charter fishing trip this next year.   Wife, myself and a few bags of Salmon Jerky would love to drive up during our camping trip and participate.
