One angling advantage of radar hit home for me on a summer offshore trip with Capt. Gary Adams of Rail Time. We were after albacore 40 miles off the Southern California coast. Yet, as the morning wore on, it appeared that we might go home empty-handed. Then Adams fired up his radar and extended the range to 24 miles, and suddenly found a cluster of faint, yet stationary, targets about 15 miles due west.
