Video: Albacore Tuna Jumper School Trolling off Winchester Bay Oregon

Late in the season we have to find jumper schools and troll through them. Early in the season you can just follow the warm water, but in September-October they start schooling up and are harder to find. The key is to watch for birds who eat the small fish that the tuna herd up towards the surface when they're hungry. The white flashes you see in the early part are the bellies of the tuna as they jump. Kind of hard to see with our camera but that's what is going on.
