St Helens Albacore Report January 2010
Fishing wide of the shelf off St Helens Sunday 10 January, Rocky
Carosi and crew on Saltshaker landed four albacore up to six kilos in
weight and released a similar number. This signals the beginning of
what, hopefully, will be a good gamefishing season. Water temperature
started at 17 degrees and peaked at 19 degrees celsius well past the
Continental Shelf. The albacore had been feeding on concentration of
lantern fish and very tiny assorted baitfish.
