Polaris Supreme Mid Day Report
Wow what a morning. Crazy El Nino Generated Weather. Thunder Storms, Lightning Strikes next to the boat, Rain, Rain, Rain. There I said it El Nino! I don't know what everybody was waiting for. We have been driving around in 72 degree water for a month now its a steady 74 and pushing 80 east of Guadalupe Island. It's September 9th and we are catching yellowfin and bluefin 70 to 160 miles from San Diego with no signs of it slowing. Today, we have caught only rat Yellows so far but have high hopes for this afternoon.
Tommy And Crew.
Here's what went down today. Breakfast, then American Hustle(movie), then a whole lot of tuna leader making, then the Charger game. Listen to this. Our goofball crew member Mark Clark, well he claims to be a Raider fan but the only time he seems to care what they do is when they play the Chargers. Myself and the rest of the crew usually bet 20 dollars on each game. Well today couldn't have played out better. Prior to the start of the game he assumed we were betting and to rub it in that the Raiders are no good, I claimed I didn't want to bet because I'd feel I was taking money out of his sons pocket. He insisted we bet so we did. I still had it planned out to give him his money back if the Chargers blew them out as the ultimate rub in. So if you didn't know, it was a nail biter. Mark missed the last couple minutes of the game and everyone on board made him think that the Raiders won. He immediately came down to the galley and just absolutely let me have it. I don't know
how but I managed to keep a straight enough face to still have him think the Raiders won. Ever since then he's been on cloud 9. I don't know how and when I'll break the news and bring his reality crashing down to a major low. I'm sure looking forward to it though. He thinks he's up 120 bucks but more importantly to him he gets to talk all that smack.
Anyways, moving on. It's cocktail hour now and soon we will be feasting on a veal chop. One more day. The weather is fantastic right now. A beautiful sunset too.
Spent most of day searching for yellowtail in extremely clean water and very strong current. Our search for gamefish came up empty but our 50 passengers enjoyed some fine shallow water bottom fishing. We ended up with 150 Whitefish, 50 Rockfish, 30 Sculpin, 10 Sheephead, and 10 Bonito. We are scheduled everyday. Call 619-224-3383 for reservations.
Arrive depart today. We offloaded a beautiful catch, got fuel, changed oil + fuel filters, swapped out some crew and left the dock by 10:00. We're good. We left on a very long running charter called the Heil charter. I won't go into our bait loading, I'll just say we have some bait on board. We were in the fishing grounds before 3:00 this afternoon. The couple boats that departed yesterday had some good yellow finning. When we got there it just had that "should've been here yesterday" kind of feel to it. We didn't see much. We had one long drift where we picked up 14 but other then that it didn't feel like we were going to get a hit so we rolled out of that zone. Below there didn't look much better until right around 8:00 when the sun fell we had a good old fashioned blind jig strike that resulted in a good stop. We always fish till the end over here and tonight we were rewarded. The fish bit full speed but only for a flash but it was long enough to get everyone on board at least one with many getting three or more. They were snapping. I call departure fish free fish because we weren't even supposed to be fishing. They're free. Anyways we're going to fish again tomorrow. See you then.
Oh yeah, the weather is still sooo nice. We're going to have to pay for this stretch.
