I tuna fished out of ilwaco Saturday and Sunday August 27 & 28. We had a five man crew both days.
On Saturday the water was a little choppy but not bad. There was a lot of good sine out there. Lots of marks, lots of birds, good water temp and good water color but we were having a hard time getting them to come up.
We hooked 10 fish on the troll and landed 6 but we just could not get a bait stop going. On Sunday conditions were very good calm seas and not much wind but the morning bite was very slow the bite picked up in the after noon and we ended up hooking twenty two fish but were only able to
get 16 in the box Our best results came 50 miles south west of ilwaco
I expect to hear some great reports in the next few weeks.
