Catching albacore tuna off Washington’s coast is easy once you find the fish. Finding the fish in a big ocean is the hard part.
One of the best ways to learn about catching albacore is from the Tuna Dog himself, Del Stephens.
If you are just getting into Tuna fishing, The Dark Side by Del Stephens is a must read.
I read the book twice. Once before I even ever hit the tuna grounds and then a second time to sharpen my skills.
This book covers it all to help anglers get basic knowledge of fishing for albacore including: tuna gear, setting up tackle, how to find the fish, where to start fishing, how to troll, how to drop irons, how to live-bait.
