Our biggest one yet tapped out to 353 pounds ! Thank you @g_fly_premium_flying_fish for the bait, congratulations on the fish of a lifetime @tunajugend !
Benn making the most of the situation and not dragging passengers offshore to catch nothing. So we have been fishing the Coranado Islands for all you want cod each day and heading offshore in the PM finding very little. Our larger boats went out today catching a handful of Yellowfin so that's a move in the right direction. Thanks!

Good evening. Things are happening down here on the Polaris Supreme. From this morning until about 1500 hours, we didn't do hardly anything. Some of that time was spent traveling but what I'm getting at is rather impressive. From 1500 hours until dark, we caught our daily limits of 25-35 lb. bluefin, 19 yellowfin, and 1 dorado off of one stop. Very good fishing and to top it off, the weather is very pleasant and it's looking like more of the same for the next 48 hours. We'll see. Good times today, man. You know it's good when Chef Schooler's afternoon snack sat on the table for three hours, untouched. Schooler was pumped too, surprisingly. He gaffed fourteen fish today (you know it's good when Chef "Shabba" is out on deck), got most on the first shot, and didn't knock one off of the line. Sonny Jim! We're very proud of Shabba and the boys had themselves a real ball.
Anyhow, the boys are all tucked away and getting their rest for tomorrow. We'll chat with you then. Peace.
P.S. Our good friend Jack Golden would like to say hello to his lovely wife Pat. Also, don't worry, boss. I tossed Larry the camera during the bludgeoning and he took a ton of photos.
Today was awesome. We woke up drifting catching fish and that's about what we did until dark. I'm not kidding you. We moved the boat just a handful of times but never for more then 10 minutes. It was drifting with always at least one on the hook. In the morning until after lunch it was mostly bluefin in the 30-45 pound range with the occasional 60-80 pounder. I have to tell you that that's a much more manageable grade. It's a much better fish to start off on than those 60-80 pounders. Don't get me wrong, you know I love catching those beauts but they make a much better cherry than ice cream if you know what I mean. We had that kind of day where if we catch them tomorrow it will be the cherry on top. The rest of the day we got into yellowfin tuna mode and it was game on for those fish. Tommy decided to save our sardine on board it being they were feeding on the anchovy that went over the side so that's what we used. Chovy baby. I can't ever remember fishing anchovy for tuna on this boat. I have to go back to my mission bay days to remember that but I didn't forget how to do it. I wrote this in the beginning of the season and I'll write about it again. If you're coming on a future trip, please remember to bring the lost art of anchovy fishing skills. A big part of that is an anchovy rod and reel. Something light that's meant for 20-25 pound test with a nice free spool to help you toss those anchovies away from the boat. I hate to say it but if that means you need to bring your coffee grinder so be it.
The weather is still good! Man I hope this can hold up for at least my buds on the upcoming Heil 5 day trip leaving the day after tomorrow. We're staying put right here for our last day fishing tomorrow. We're hoping we can get more of the 60-80 pounders tomorrow but we will be stoked with the 30-45's as well.
