Hi friends. We arrived this morning from our Garry Roberts 9-day trip, wheeled up their gear and fish up to the top of the docks, and got down to business on our turnaround chores. When all was said and done, Robin Gledhill and the Blue/White group was on the boat and we shoved off the docks en route to the receivers. Our bait loading went well and we'll monitor the health of our sardines throughout the trip.
For dinner this evening, instead of prime rib (thank you!) Robin brought us some fresh halibut to play with and Chef Shawn prepared it wonderfully. The wine was flowing too. I had Robin give me a list of the wine that was passed around from table to table and I was going to write about it but there are too many big, fancy words for me to type out. All I can say is that there were plenty of dry, light wines to not overpower the fish, but to accent the flakey, white fish. Perfect. I didn't have any. Sad face.
Anyhow, we'll report back to you tomorrow. Hopefully the fishing is great, the seas are flat, and the sunshine burns us all like lobsters.

P.S. I'd like to give a shout out to the lady and gentlemen at Fisherman's Landing for completing my request of breaking seventy dollars with ten seven dollar bills. They are the bomb and they are my friends.
Also, we'd like to give a shout out to our thumb-sized calico bass, Charlie, that Jed and myself released today in the bay. We've taught him the way and he's been through a lot: transit from San Diego Bay, to Alijos Rocks, and back and he also experienced his first USCG helicopter rescue. He's a G and we wish him well.
P.S.S. Those of you waiting for the pictures of last trip, due to technical difficulties they wont be up till we arrive from this trip on Thursday.
Today we had a great start to our 4 day trip sponsored by Bob Sparre.
We have been busy with kelp patty yellowtail and bluefin ranging in size from 20-40 lbs!
We have been keeping busy but we are still looking for the coveted all day “plunker bite”
Hope we find it soon.
Will report again tomorrow,
Well today went as expected. We woke up on the anchor after a lovely nights sleep and shortly after daylight we started scratching tuna. It didn't take long to meet our quota. Some already had it and were dropper looping for yellows and getting a few. Anyways a little after 7 we pulled anchor and trolled around for wahoo. One more than half the boat caught a wahoo by lunch time and we took off for Alijos Rocks. We traveled the rest of the day while we looked for something floating with dorado under it but we never found anything as expected.
So like I said, we'll be at the stones in the morning. We're going to try for some more wahoo before starting north to finish off our trip. You never really can have enough wahoo. There is 2 or 3 passengers left on board who have not caught a wahoo so we're going to make sure they get one before anyone else tomorrow. We call it the troll of shame and Glenn, if you're reading at home, I always think of you when we do this.
160 yellowfin 37 skipjack. Some weather forecasted for tomorrow. Back at it again on Thursday.
Good evening and thanks again for tuning Polaris Supreme fans. What an excellent day today! The early morning hours were spent doing some looking around at different spots deciding where we wanted to get established for tuna fishing. The currents didn't really want to cooperate at first, but eventually we found what looked best and gave it a shot. It was a little on the slower side till things started to wake up, then the guys started to scratch away. We eventually switched gears into wahoo mode and that was a great choice. The remainder of the day we had our running shoes on chasing skinnies all around the boat. Stop after stop, they kept coming over the rail. The tax man had to take his piece of the pie of course, losing more than just a few to sharks, but never the less, I still call it an amazing day of skin fishing. We all look forward to many more days like today before we end the trip. For those wondering about the weather, you should be jealous. I don't think there is nicer weather anywhere in the U.S. It nothing short of perfect out here.
A+ fishing and top notch food, what more could you ask for on a long range trip. All of the guys are having a great time. As always, thanks for taking a few minutes to check in and don't forget, even though we are out here on the water, we will still be representing at the Long Beach Fred Hall Show this year. Make sure you stop by our booth and say hi to our crew up there. Till tomorrow, tight lines.
