Rumors of Albies; No Confirmed Catches

I went down in the daytime yesterday hitting a number of locations along RI's oceanfront looking for false albacore.  I found nothing.  There are rumors that they are around. Fishermen think they have seen them jumping while other say they have hooked them but lost them.  Some boaters say they have caught them.  However, I can't seen to find a shore guy who has landed one in RI and I know a lot are trying, some of them fishing for the last seven days straight.  The strange thing about these fish is that there can be none around, and then all of a sudden all hell breaks loose and they are all over the place.  Let's hope that happens soon.
