Sometimes you get lucky. As a whole this year's 3rd Albacore trip was our most successful. The only thing that would have made it better was a supply of live anchovies for some chum. Even without chum, there were so many Albacore we didn’t have trouble getting 2-4 fish for all 5 fly anglers. An easy ‘Bar’ crossing, flat seas and t-shirt weather made the trip as well. Once we hit the 62 degree water you could see ‘jumpers’ in almost any direction. Unfortunately the flat seas had a downside. We could see small pods of fish working everywhere, but without chum the fish were pretty skittish and were difficult to keep near the boat. The action still felt non-stop as we were constantly spotting fish and when we were able to find a larger school, hook-ups were all but guaranteed.
