My Son Caught his First False Albacore: Yesterday my son caught his first false albacore. Always an exciting day in an angler’s life, especially from a kayak. Or let me see was it a Little tunny? Or a Little tuna? Or an albie? Or a Fat Albert? Or a hardtail? Well, take your pick. Anyway you slice it, this is the hard charging Euthynnus alletteratus, pound for pound one of the most powerful fish on planet earth.
