Two Shamrock 26s headed out in tandem early Saturday morning from Illwaco, WA. From the Columbia River bar and 25 miles out the conditions we found were dislectic from the NOAA report of 3' seas at 9 seconds, with seas that were @ 7' seas at 5 seconds. So it was a very slow and wet schlogg out. But the seas finally laid down about and we finally hit 61 degree water at the W125 line (@ 45 miles out). Both boats quickly landed 2 each, Island Time picked up another on a baitstop and that was it for the day. We trolled into the sunset,..... Got to enjoy the moonlight and drifting on the sea anchor for the night. Then experience a sunrise from a perspective we'd never seen before. Island Time landed 3 more albacore on Sunday, while we failed to convert from the troll into our boat. But the lack of stacked fish was far outweighed by a fantastic adventure. Final trip stats were 200nm; 28 hours of engine time; 70 gals of diesel.
