A possible state record for a dorado occurred off the southern coast on Thursday as many anglers are starting to pursue albacore tuna in the warmer, blue waters.

Albert DaSilva of Kelso caught a 16 pound dorado while fishing for tuna 35 miles out of Ilwaco.  It was caught on a purple/black clone while trolling.

There is no current sport caught record currently exists in the state of Washington, according to Joe Hymer, a state Fish and Wildlife biologist.
