We fished hard today. It felt like a kind of slow day but when you look at our tally it shows we had a good day. We just never got steady more than a couple of drifts. We'd stop and get a handful and then have to go again. Other than a few hour long drifts that is. But at the end of the day, when only half the people were fishing and I had a yellowtail to give away because the angler who caught it had his limit already and nobody handed me over a tag, I knew it was a good day.
Things didn't start off so hot though Nope. I knew our bait was dying but I thought we were good for another day of fishing before it would croak. I was wrong. "Red Boy". The sardines were red. Most were either floating belly up or lying at the bottom of the tank. We made it through though. We worked hard and had a good day. The yellows were nice ones too. 20-25 pounds in the morning and 14-25 pounds in the afternoon.
The weather through here was great today. I'm not sure we've had one day at this Island this year where the wind wasn't ripping through the south end where we've been fishing. Now we have one and it looks like it will remain true tomorrow as well. We saved one tank of bait from last trip. I knew the first morning we may not have any survivors for our last day if we didn't save our one tank of good bait. Hopefully we find something to use it on. I know we'll be making horrific speed coming up so we won't have any time to "work" an area. We just have to pick a course and hope for the best. See ya.
Polaris Supreme update 10-4-12 14:00 hours
Richie and the gang got out at 18:00 hours last evening and neglected to put out a report. But I can tell you I talked to him at 12:00 hours today and he was very disgruntled with only jig strikes to be had so far. I talked to him later on at 14:01 hours and he was doing back flips with over 100 bluefin in a wide open bite and they were still biting. They have great weather and I'm sure Richie will have a report for you by the end of the day or tomorrow morning when they arrive at 06:00 hours. Our next 1.5 day trip is full but we do still have openings on the 6-day departing this Sunday, October 7th.
The 3 days of wind dropped the water temp a couple of degrees. Ended our day with full Mexican limits of yellowtail 4 dorado 3 skipjack. Conditions should improve with a few days of good weather.

Hi friends. Not much going on with us as the fishing definitely fell flat on it's face down here today. We're currently traveling up the line to fish a little closer to home as a few boats had some good days on bluefin and yellowfin tuna. Rumor has it, the choppers and moppers are on their way to do just that; chop up and mop up this area. Sad face. We're hoping to get in there and pick off a school before the boys in blue do and then we're going to have to book it for home. Take care and wish us lots of luck.
50+ yellowtail so far on our offshore trip. On the hunt for bluefin now. No passport all week
Well today was more of the same. We woke up to coffee, machaca and eggs and a Tom Cruise movie. Then we rigged up our heavy gear and did our tuna seminar. Then we trolled it up for a bit and looked at a couple of kelps for some neck tie size dorado which we let go. Then we had a nice taco salad and some kind of a room temp soup which was good and then some chose to take a nap while others chose to listen to football and do what guys do while we listen to football. After that it was dinner time and then a quick nap before arriving to the bait grounds at 11:00 PM. Bait fishing wasn't a great success but we did manage to catch 13 nice size squid that will fish beautifully on the kite. Hey, that's 13 200+ pound tuna as far as I'm concerned. Now everyone is in bed and I'm up driving and writing this.The weather couldn't be better and we're about half way there so a little more relaxation before we get down and dirty for several days straight.
