Unloading in Ilwaco
Steve, Marcus, and I helped unload 5 tons of albacore in Ilwaco today at Jessie's Ilwaco Fish Co.  We had to leave Astoria at 5 am to catch the big ebb tide going down the Columbia River and at times our speed over ground was 11 knots!  Steve and I used to load the F/V Papa George with 50 tons of albacore per trip in years past but now we are more of a sardine boat and less of a tuna troller. Half of our catch will be trucked up to Pelican Packers who will can it.

Tomorrow all the seine gear will be set up on deck and hopefully Steve and the gang will be out sardine seining on Sunday. Our spotter pilot is Brad and I am sure he is very capable of finding lots of sardines.
