Good evening folks and welcome to the last July 31 of 2015 ever aboard the Polaris Supreme. The water we fished today just didn't have that right feel to it if you know what I mean. The whole set up changed since we were there 2 days ago. It was 2 degrees cooler for one thing. Maybe we weren't in the right zone , but I don't think so. I think things were off as far as the tuna and Dorado goes. We were finding bull kelp areas instead of nice bushy kelps and catching only dinker tuna. I only saw one tuna over 10 pounds today and 10 pounds was a lunker. Needless to say we let every single one of them go. So at 7:00 pm, it was looking like we were going to chalk this one up as a travel day. I was just about ready to shower. I mean I literally had all my clothes on the floor with the shower water running when I heard the call. "We have a real nice kelp up ahead". I thought about it and decided I better suit up again just in case and it was the right move. Easily the best kelp of the year. Until well after sunset things were busy and exciting aboard the Polaris Supreme. The whole boat was bit. Every single person. Wide open 14-25 pound yellowtails. It was good. 4 fish per rod that stop. Uh huh. Dinner was much more satisfying than it was flling like it was going to be.
Another reason dinner was so lovely would be a fella, my friend Herb Yamanaka. Very possibly the nicest man in the world. At least tied for the nicest man in the world. Every year he spends I don't even know how much time behind the lathe machine, making everyone on board an original wooden bowl or things like it, and they're wonderful. He works for the Oregon Ducks origination so go Ducks!!!
Tomorrow we'll be arriving to Cedros at about 7 in the am. We're going to plan on wind, and we're going to plan on some good tailing to go along with a good time.
