ISLANDS ARE ON THE MEND ! 35 yellowtail (12-25 lbs) on the boat so far for just 20 anglers. Flylined Sardines on 25 & 30 lb monofilament has been the best. Stay tuned for a final report.
Remember yesterday when I said we would find our dorado kelp? Well we conquered that quest. I tell no lies. An hour or so after breakfast, maybe 2, we found a kelp loaded and we went to battle and overall I think we won. I mean we caught exactly what we wanted. Beautiful mahi mahi. After that we went back to travel mode and we'll be arriving to our slip in San Diego tomorrow at 0800 hours. We ate some of that mahi for dinner tonight while we watched a slide show of all the pictures taken this trip presented to us by Tommy. Everyone misses there wives and they all told me, "Drew, I couldn't spend another minute without my wife". That's why this trip was 15 days. It's the maximum amount of time we can spend without our wives.
So we tie up tomorrow and that's the way we'll stay until November 9th, when we'll be departing on a 10 day trip. So until then, I'd just like to say how much I'll miss writing to you all. Stay classy and thanks for stopping by, but mostly, stay classy.
Polaris Supreme Trip Update 08-07-2012
Absolutely gorgeous flat calm weather today. And that was the key to pulling the rabbit out of the hat at the end of the day. Definitely a slow start from morning through mid-day. But in the afternoon it was game on, on light breezers of yellowfin tuna. The schools probably only held 50 fish each and were really, really hard to see. Just barely making the lightest ripple on the water. The challenge of it made it really fun for Drew and I trying to spot them. Especially since they immediately bum rushed the boat when we slid on them. And everybody hooked one right off the bat. If you were quick, you got two before it was all over. And then off we were to find another school. The fast pace was very exciting after the last two days of plunker fishing. We fished late so we will have a late arrival tomorrow, probably around 9:00 am. We will get out an update on jackpot contenders and then for the next 3-day, Captain Drew will be out with the Prince of Words, Richie, doing the updates.
Thanks for tuning in, have a great night.
The old adage “I’d rather be lucky than good” was the story for us today. Before we even fired up the Binos our autopilot found us a kelp patty that kicked out 66 yellowtail (12-25lbs). After our kelp the weather kicked up substantially making it very difficult to work. We did however see some tuna but did not get a bite. A 40 lb flyline setup was the best today.
We had a pretty good day of yellowtail fishing today. It wasn't wide open and it wasn't slow either. Just some steady picking through out most of the day. It didn't rain so that was cool. I'm really drawing a blank on what to write here so I think I'll keep it short. There's nothing significant to tell you all about. Mark didn't wear the dunce helmet today and nobody fell in the water or told a good joke. Just some steady picking of the yellows. We're heading back to the bluefin grounds to give it another try at those beauts. The weather rolling up is just fantastic and we're expecting more of it tomorrow. Oh yeah! The seared bluefin we had for dinner tonight was very very good. It was paired with edaname, these super tasty green beans and some just delicious tasting mashed potatoes so there you have it. Sweet dreams all.
