FISHING -- Normally associated with warmer Pacific waters such as near Baja California, dorado are a rare catch in the Pacific Northwest -- so rare, none has been registered as a record sportfish catch in Washington.

That may change today.

Albert DaSilva of Kelso caught this 16-pound dorado while fishing for tuna 35 miles out of Ilwaco on Thursday.  

It was caught on a purple/black clone while trolling.  

See a video of the action as the angler made the catch.
