some friends asked me last year, they needed a fourth to go tuna fishing out of Ukee, they were going out 28 miles in late September, back in the same day. I couldn't go but that sounded liked a pretty crazy trip, hope the weather was good.
under 40miles for Albacores in BC waters is like inshore fishing for the commercial boyz, most times for productivity they venture in the Oregon coast where the warmer current favor the tuna
One year when the elnino hit our coast the mackerel were hard to shake off & a buddy hooked a skip jack 12 miles offshore
Those waters would bring the Albacores in closer & most boats can target them, but regular migration routes for Albacores off BC coast would need a long range craft & a different class of charter license due to transport Canada ( I may B wrong but this is what I herd )
For me this is one of my bucket list & hopefully B4 I'm 6ft under me & my boat 2B can play with Albacores!!!
