Figured I'd start a continuous thread for this years albies. As I expect many reports to follow.


Well it seems too be getting better every week.  This fish are still small bit their fight isn't. Me a Franzy (aka Blue Ninja) went down yesterday. Found lots of fish, but were tough to catch due to them not staying up for very long. But managed a to put several in the boat.

Will be changing gears this coming weekend, by heading to the Rockies. But will continue to be after albies after that.

It was a Bojangles kind of day

Not  a ton of pictures to add but here they are....

Jason's saltwater gar (needlefish)







and before I get shit for being dressed as the blue ninja didn't really have a choice, last week was in Florida with the family spent alot of the day fishing and got sun burnt really bad.  Just started peeling and didn't want to go through that again.


Also on another note, at the beginning of the day I was telling Jason how I would have to get a new intermediate fly line soon because mine was getting old.  Part of the way through the day I was pulling line off the reel to cast and the line split in half.  Done.... b'; b';  Had to finish the rest of the day with a heavy sinking line. 

Anyone got any recommendations on a intermediate line?

Tough day foe ablies. Fish were really scattered and not staying up for long. And very picky to fly selections.
2 ablies and a bluefish

Well, I almost didn't go this weekend. Saturday was jacked with 20kt wind. Sunday's weather report was calling for 15kt wind out of the North/NW, not good. But a NW wins is better than a South. Late Saturday evening they changed it to 11kt. That's do able. Arrived at 9am and the fish were only a short bumpy ride away. Once we were in the middle of it, you could look in amu direction and see fish busting. Not a lot of pics from me due to having to deal with the boat in the wind and the non stop action. But we probably had 12 to 15 in the boat by lunchtime.

The action slowed after lunch. We picked up a few more, then it just died. So we rode to see what was going on behind a trawler. Not much except for about 100 spinner sharks thrashing the surface behind it. So I broke out the 10wt and steel leader. Changed flies after one broke the hook at the bend. (Partridge Musky hook 7/0) Switched to a cobia fly. (Gama 7/0) made a few cast and the as the fly landed on the water a shark took it like a trout sipping an emerger. Battled that giant for about 10min until it bit through the steel leader. I called off the shark hust after that.

Went looking for more ablies and found some all scattered out over a large area. It was tough to get to this fish bit we picked up a few and called ot after that.

Pretty epic day





Fish puke






Didn't have much time for these
