Default Tuna are in....In the Pacific Northwest!

Thought I'd post this up......It's time for me to start canning Albacore Tuna.

This guy is from Newport, Oregon and has his own boat. He caught this 43 lb Albacore.



I went down to the docks and bought a 20 lb fish off the boat, The Valkyrie.

My step son is heading out on a boat out of Coos Bay for a month to do some tuna fishing.

He should have good luck, water temperatures are in the 60's so Tuna are close. No three days at sea to get out to where the fish are!

We've got fish like that, but they have whiskers. You could try making sushi out of them, but you would have to be really hungry to eat it.

Nice looking fish. I really would love to hook one of those!!!

Right you are!! Pressure canned at 11 pounds or better for 100 minutes or longer. The pics just show the jas preped and ready for the pressure canner.

Fixed it for ya, WOC! Why did you reply within my post?
