Brings back memories of the first Tuna I ever caught fishing out of Newport at the time. I think it was about 2003 or 2004. Had my lil Duck at that time 21.5’ soft top.
We got all rigged up by the tackle store that probably most people remember located on the N side of the bay. They got us set up with some hand lines, and a few clones and told us how fast to troll etc.

That’s all I knew about Tuna fishing then. It was enough.

We followed the fleet out and got our Halibut fairly quickly, then continued West for a few more miles, wish I could remember who we followed out there. Anyway we ended up with about 5 Tuna, the most exciting fishing trip I had & have , ever been on .

Welcome to the dark side.

And thousands of $$$$ later, we’ll , the rest as they say is history. Good times.

I hope your right about the 20th. !!!

I saw 59.3 water about 2 miles off Harris Beach in Brookings today. `That's way warmer than normal for this area. It is much colder out about 10 miles. Tuna water in close?

First Ilwaco Tuna...2011... remember SeaYa... 36 ft yellowfin Triple 300 zukes... my good friend Wayne owned it and we decided July 3 2011 we were going to get the first Ilwaco Tuna with crew of 4-5... fishing day cane everyone bailed except Wayne and me... bar was restricted to 36 feet so Uscg talked to us since we were like 36.6 and let us go. We headed south and started trilling we finally got a double and got 1 peanut in and said it’s fine to go. GPS said it was 101 miles to the tip
Of the south jetty so away we went in a hurry.... had about a 900 Fuel bill to split 2 ways for 1 fish on the 4 th of July.... man that fish tasted good... honest true story ... would not change a thing if I could do it again... it’s all about the adventure

That's a long ways for one fish! I think I've traveled almost that far for no fish!:doh: :(

Boy, I like that thrill of knowing you are catching the first Oregon tuna of the year! Those have been some of my favorite fishing moments.

I'd be out there now if I had the time. This is not my year.

6 in the boat so far... 22 Miles west of Newport!:wink:
I spent an hour + last night going over Terrafin. I Believe You:meme:
I looked at every chart from N.Cal to Central Oregon, Temps & Chloro.
Absolutely no reason there couldn't be tuna inside the 317.

WSW of Charleston looked Very Good. (Better Bet For This Early?)

As of yesterday, 43N x 130W

That's the leading edge of the main body of tuna water. 400 miles west of Charleston.

That's another 10 days out.

Oooooo! I believe! It's like Santa Clause, if you believe hard enough, it feels like it will actually happen!

Did you get the port? South I assume?

Neither one, Dan. Should be pretty clear.
Something wrong with your S Mark? It does look like code! it appears your computer or the website is doing something with your S's that is messing up your posts. Do your posts look normal to you?
