One Last Albie – On The Water


By Columbus Day, you can feel the window closing. The increasingly unstable weather, falling temperatures, and migrating baitfish will soon send the false albacore back to wherever it is they spend the 10 to 11 months when they aren’t zipping around the Northeast’s inshore waters.

The albie fishing season is the shortest in the Northeast. Here, we enjoy more than six months of stripers and blues, four months of fluke and blackfish, and year-round freshwater fishing. Even the tuna season lasts from June to October. Yet, we get only a few fleeting weeks of albies. Most years, they arrive by Labor Day and are a distant memory by Halloween.
