Capt. Art brought back 6 salmon and a pretty good load of bottom fish from his Salmon/Bottom combo trip today.

Another great tuna day!

The Crackerjack brought back 57 albacore last night! They were out between 30 and 40 miles with a full boat of ten. Way to go guys! The next open tuna  in August are on the 25th (6 spots) and the 27th (1 spot) and then we have room for a whole boat on the 31st. The Sea Quell had a bottom fishing double header yesterday and got 53 crab in 6 pots on the morning trip! However, by the afternoon the next set of 3 pots only brought in 7.
