Bluefin Tuna Pacific Northwest!

Having loads of time on my hands here in Westport WA I been talking with the commercial Albacore Tuna fishermen. They are catching baby Bluefin mixed in with the Albacore. Sizes range from 25 pounds to 45 pounds. Has anyone ever explored this open ocean fishery with a fly rod? They are getting a few Yellowfin also. I have not been hearing of the charter boats getting anything but Albacore. Some guy got a 39 pound Chinook recently on conventional gear.
