has anyone gotten any reports

I am starting to get some reports from my buddies up near the Vineyard, they are into them

So they should start heading are away anytime now. I have only gotten into them a few times over the last couple of years. Every time was at Sandy Hook @ North Beach, I walked up.

What is deal with eating the Albies, I have always thrown them back?

Same here - epic blitz 2 years ago and nothing since. I'm planning on hitting the ocean with the fly rod this year. I spoke at length with the Fly Hatch owner and he gave me some good tips.

Hope they show up soon.

Eating false albacore, not many will
Bonita on the other hand are tasty.

Albies have a really strong fishy tuna taste,after some talk last year, I tried one never again. If you really want to give one a try, you must bleed it and put on ice right away, not alway the easiest thing on a kayak, and a fresh bleeding Albie makes awesome shark bait.(you should do the same with Bonita ASAP)
Then as soon as you can fillet it and cut off the really dark meat leaving only the palest red meat, cook it the same as you would tuna. Have heard of Albie sashimi, but the person I know who likes them and talked me into trying them won't go their. Also you can't steak them because the bone helps make them taste bad once they die, so the sooner you fillet the better, but you must bleed them as soon as their off the hook.

happy hunting

Fly Hatch re-opened in Oceanport, but its hit or miss for when its open. If you call ahead, he will meet you at the store. He is moving to Tampa soon so get what you need now.

I have a special tackle box with a bunch of "deadly dicks", I can't seem to find them much around here but if you do they are all you need for the Albies

I have them in every size

Split Tail Tsunamis are also great for the albies. The albies actually taste decent if you eat them raw.
