We are kicking off National Seafood Month with a shout out to the West Coast tuna trollers who keep us stocked in delicious, convenient and healthy wild American fish.

Our Last Set this month features Reuben Roelle with his gaff in an albacore tuna aboard the 41-foot, 71-year-old wooden ice troller Manatee II out of Charleston, Ore.

Captain and owner Patrick “Fishpatrick” Roelle took the photo and then stocked our offices with a few cans of his own troll-caught and hand-packed tuna.
