While most anglers think you have to travel to the tropics to enjoy fast-paced fishing for tuna, many Washingtonians have discovered this incredible fishery exists in their own backyard. Our albacore fishing charters start up in late July and if you’ve never tried it for yourself, we highly recommend you give one of our two or three-day trips a try.
Westport’s waters are fertile with tuna, and the fishery is recognized as one of the most exciting in anywhere in the world. These silver and blue torpedoes range from 15 to 45 pounds, and first-timers often think they’ve hooked into something much larger.
Albacore tuna will strip line from the reel, make lighting fast runs, and will keep fighting long after you think they should be tired. In fact, albacore tuna can maintain swim speeds of up to 50 miles per hour! Compare that to the 22 MPH sustained swim speed of the king salmon, and you can quickly ascertain why our Westport fishing charters for albacore tuna are becoming more popular every year.
