Seems hard to believe, but the tournament weekend is finally here! For those that haven't been made aware, click the ILWACO TUNA CLUB INVITATIONAL tab on the tool bar and read about what we have going on this weekend! Big money payouts, biggest on the west coast, for Albacore tuna tournaments! We have 32 teams entered and we are looking at some great weather coming this weekend with decent fishing currently happening offshore! You can follow along live with our "LIVE LEADERBOARD" that will keep you up to date on what's happening while it's happening! Should be a great event!
As most of you already know, tuna have been reporting south in central and southern Oregon. The fish that are up this way are still way offshore, with rumors of the commercial fleet catching them out near the 127 line. Everyone's fingers are crossed waiting for them to get closer and the expectation/hope is that we will see sport tuna caught in the next week to 10 days. Last year we hit fish on July 17th, I'm hoping we don't have to wait that long this year but it's only about a week away! If you go, please make sure and let us know how you did, even if it was just a long boat ride!
