Tuna Fishing

what is the best time of year to go fishing for tuna off the coast of WA?

August is good. September is better. Some years it runs through October if the ocean is rougher later. http://charterwestport.com/ Ocean and Deep Sea Charters have the most experience. Coho Charters boat on the Ultimate is good if Phil is oriented for tuna in 2008. Most trips are 75 to 150 miles off the coast of Washington. Sometimes the water moves inshore such as race reasons tuna is only 50 to 60 miles offshore, if it happens rarely with regularity. If you want closer to shore fishing, you need to go to Depoe Bay, Oregon. http://www.tradewindscharters.com/ If you do not want to go out and make your own, there are companies seafood several Westport, including floating a supplier who will sell you a tuna "in the round. "That means they sell you the whole fish. They weigh, cork it (remove the kidneys to eat) and discard the carcass for you and put it in a bag plastic with ice for transport. A 18 pound albacore (2 per pound tax = $ 36 and up) yields about 8 pounds of pure white kidney (approximately 4.50 $ Per pound of solid meat) - Delicious. You can also buy canned white or online at Westport to Tokeland Nelson crab in Washington. http://www.nelsoncrab.com/ They also have fresh crab cooked at lower prices than in Westport. Only 20 minutes drive south of Westport. Done business with Nelson in person and mail- since the mid-1960s. In Westport, try fish and chips lingcod Totem to walk in for a treat of the sea real costs. Best "sit" meals are the Isander restaurant. All three meals are good and he is here on the game in the city. Try the clams to steam and hot water for the Dungeness crab dinner. http://westport-islander.com/
