Morro Bay Albacore Move Closer

September 11, 1987

The albacore bite off the Central Coast continues to be hit or miss, however the fish have moved in closer to shore, according to Wes Cater, a spokesman for Virg's Landing in Morro Bay.

On Wednesday, 27 anglers aboard the Point Loma--a San Diego-based boat now sailing out of Virg's--caught 28 albacore while fishing just 35 miles offshore.

But on Thursday, two boats, with 56 anglers aboard, were able to land only three fish.


Anglers fishing in the Eastern Sierra are finding good weather to go along with some very good trout fishing.

Most lakes and creeks are yielding limits and near-limits of rainbow trout up to 14 inches long, with the bigger German brown trout providing an added bonus.

At Pleasant Valley Reservoir, Harold Mosher of Burbank spiced up his catch of rainbows with a five-pound four-ounce brown trout.
