They're speedy fish with good eyesight, and they're terribly picky. False albacore are back, to the delight of many local anglers. With their blitz-and-disappear behavior, they have fishermen on edge, waiting for the next eruption.

This week on the Fishing News, Kevin Blinkoff, of On The Water magazine, talks about the strong false albacore reports from around the region. Bigger stripers continue to be taken in Cape Cod Bay. And bluefish are appearing just about everywhere. Give it a listen.
