found around the world in warm temperate waters and can migrate thousands of
miles each year. Albacore tuna can live up to 12 years and mature at around five
years. Spawning occurs in tropical and subtropical waters. The female casts her
eggs in open waters and then the male fertilizes the eggs. It is thought that
the developing tuna spend their first year of life in the general area the
female scattered the eggs and then they move closer to shore, maybe off of Japan
or other islands, where they can spend time foraging. Juvenile albacore feed
primarily on squid. As an albacore ages it feeds less on squid and more on fish
such as saury, lanternfish, or rockfish. Albacore
off Washington and Oregon feed primarily on saury and northern anchovy.

With the warm weather patterns we are on now
looking to continue and the water temps in the Columbia River
already slightly above average, and the snow pack being low I can
only foresee a very good Tuna season. We are in a El Nino year which
means we get a southerly flow of water in the ocean and it brings up
warmer water from the South earlier in the year and lots of fish.
The last time we had an El Nino year there were a few reports guys
getting Dorado, A couple of Marlin were reported and some of the
other Tuna species such as Yellowfin Tuna and Bigeye tuna were reported.
