"Fixed up" is a good expression to describe our day today. We had very good yellowfin tuna fishing. We arrived to our destination shortly after breakfast and after about 1/2 an hour of searching we found what we were looking for. A school of 25-30 pound yellowfin. It bit for a little while before we had to relocate the school, which we did a few times. After that we found a different school of a more mixed grade of 10-30 pounders that we hit a couple times. Then we found a school of mostly 16-22 pounders that we did well off of. I think you get the point. We had a good day. Along with all the tuna we caught, we also managed 7 wahoo and 4 dorado. I'll say it again, we had a good day. We're feeling satisfied. Worth the days travel to get where we've been the last couple days, that's for sure.
The weather today was fantastic. Fan tastic. We'll be traveling tonight and sleeping in tomorrow. We're shooting to be fishing tomorrow afternoon. We'd like to top off on some yellers.
~~Trip Report 08.10.2015
Good evening folks. Today didn't fair out like we planned. It proves that's why it's called fishing and not catching. We didn't have the awesome weather that we had yesterday, but it was certainly fishable. Our common yellowtail zone has been producing fairly well over the past few weeks, but there are those off days too. What's encouraging though, is there is also school of yellowfin tuna down here South as well. It's great for keeping our options open for when the tails don't want to cooperate. My feeling is the the tails just took a day off to regroup and we'll get at it first thing in the morning and start tagging some fish right away. On a brighter note, we did move north a little ways in the early afternoon and hit a giant breezer of tuna. Pretty close to a football field size I would say, and we managed to get a nice chunk of them to stick with us. It took some shoveling of bait to get them to stick, but they did. Nothing like a nice chaotic tuna bite to break up the day. We managed to turn it into a nice 100 fish stop of a pretty good grade I might add. All and all, we ended up putting a descent afternoon and everyone got to tag plenty of tuna. Tomorrow is a new day, we'll cross our fingers that the fish God's are on our side tomorrow and we'll check back in after we wrap it up for the day.
Also, we cannot forget to wish Michelle Taylor a very Happy Birthday from Troy and the boys out here on the Polaris Supreme!!

7 yellowtail 109 calico bass 63 barracuda. Plenty of bites but with the lack of yellowtail we have decided to head offshore starting tomorrow. We recommend having a 20-30lb rod for kelps and smaller grade tuna and another rod with 40-60lb preferably with a 2 speed reel for fish over 50lbs. Flourocarbon is always recommended when we are offshore. Be prepared to fish flylined baits, sinker rigs and flat falls.
I would call today a very disappointing day. We had The Rocks to ourselves today after a 3 day rest and I thought we were going to get um but it was not to be. 0 wahoo. 0. Not even a short biter. We trolled for 4 hours for nothing. I think what I'm trying to say here is we didn't catch any wahoo. We caught a few handfuls of yellowtail in the morning before the sharks took things over and after realizing there were no wahoo to be had we went offshore and looked for a kelp the rest of the day to see if we could get 1 that way or a bunch of Dorado's but that was not to be either. The fishing today stunk. Everything else today was lovely though. The weather today was really nice. The sun was out and the seas were flat. The food is always great out here and the scenery was lovely as well. We're working our way back towards home now to extend our fishing time for the trip. We're going to top off on those beautiful yellowtails tomorrow and spend our last couple of day
s hunting the bluefin tuna.
Captain Ryan Bositan called in today at 12:50 PM with an audio update from the San Diego out of Seaforth Sportfishing in San Diego, CA. We are currently drifting right now. We have two 70 pounder Bluefin Tuna on the deck. We have dumped 5 or 6 of them. They are not coming in too easy today. We also caught a half dozen Yellowtail on the way to the tuna grounds.
