Captain Ryan Bostian checked in this evening with an update from the San Diego out of Seaforth Sportfishing in Mission Bay, CA. Today we had 23 passengers catch 27 California Yellowtail, 55 Barracuda and 1 bonito. Very good mixed bag fishing. This is a good opportunity to fish on an uncrowded boat and also enjoy good fishing.

We are underway in gorgeous weather. Our bait we
picked up at the receiver is perfect 6-8 " sardines. We have eight
anglers on board. George, Craig, Al, Bobby, Scott, Sheridan, Tom, and
Roger. Our crew is Captains tommy, Drew and Kevin. Our deck crew is
Mike, Dave and Perry, and our chef is Javier.
All the boys are napping right now after a delicious chicken
breast with plum sauce for lunch. We will be traveling for at least two
days before we start fishing, so don't expect anything but naps, rigging
and food reports for the next few days.
Hope you all had a great Christmas!

Polaris Supreme Trip Report 09-05-2016
Hello Supreme Fans.
Our day started off Early in the gray light, but with much bigger fish around the boat. Some of the bluefin tuna we saw blowing out were well over 150 pounds! We had our fair share of hook ups and heart breaks throughout the day most of the time we had 3 to 4 fish going. Rob Gledhill had one on close to 3 hours only for it to gain it's freedom right next to the boat! Gary Jones was one of the lucky ones. After a long hard battle he lands one that taped out at 91 pounds! We have really gotten worked over the last two days on this big fish. It is really hard to hook them on anything heavier than 50 pound test, you fight them for long battles and then after a half an hour to two hours you lose it and have to start all over again. We are definitely getting our butts kicked. It's really some fun fishing, the catching could be a little bit better. Wish us luck as we plan to do battle again tomorrow with the mighty mean bluefin tuna.
The Supreme Team!
