With half-day boats as far north as Oceanside running out to fish kelp paddies as close as four to five miles from the beach, you'd expect even multi-day boats to be fishing close, and you'd be right.

"It's all up here now," said Royal Star skipper Randy Toussaint Sunday. "It's almost time to start looking up by the Cortes Bank. And it's time for the next wave to come up from the south."

Albacore have surprised some anglers by remaining 15 to 20 miles south of the Coronados Islands. The numbers of longfin being caught aren't great, but the fish are mostly of good quality, at 25 pounds or more.
