Our buddy Todd Holt (Todd from the bait dock) was helping deliver a sailboat from Ilwaco to CA, when everything went wrong.

The water on the tuna grounds is very, very warm for June.
If there are not tuna in the Astoria Canyon right now, they will be there in a few days.
I keep hearing tuna rumors, but none of them are confirmed.
John Cooney and his father, Master Machinist Ralph Cooney, spent the day tuning cedar plugs.
Supposedly tuning makes them swim better, but we have been too lazy to try it until John and his dad volunteered to give it a shot. We should know within a week or two whether or not it makes a difference.
Deny has been killing himself to get EVERY last thing on Shake N Bake working and has her ready to go.
Shake N Bake is waiting for a few parts from CAT (routine maintenance) and should be up and running by the 18th when we plan on our first tuna run of 2016.
